Bags of style
Sick of being a bag lady? You need Gymtote – a handbag that performs like a gym bag! This clever, chic bag has special compartments to keep your smelly gym kit away from your day-to-day bits and pieces, and saves you from lugging around two hefty bags. What a great idea!

Print power
Really look the part next time you’re shaking and shimmying in your dance class with Zumba’s new Tri-Me Perfect Leggings. The eye-catching design of these loose-fitting cargo pants will let everyone know you’re the life of the dance party!

On your toes
Want a ballerina’s body without even leaving the house? The online classes from barrecoreVIRTUAL are designed to do just that. There are 12 different workouts to choose from, including four brand new ones, such as the 30-minute barrecoreEXPRESS – perfect for busy bees!

The whey forward
If you think that high-protein snacks can’t taste great, try Optimum Nutrition’s latest Oats & Whey Flapjack bars. Available in three delicious flavours – Double Chocolate, Coconut Cherry and Oats & Honey – they not only taste amazing, but each 70g bar delivers 23g of protein and 5g of dietary fibre. What more could you want from a post-workout snack?
