1. Koral Activewear Lustrous camouflage-print leggings, £110
With running tights these stylish and comfortable you won't want to take them off post-workout. Mums who run will find the higher-rise waist particularly comforting.
2. Adidas x Stella McCartney leopard-print stretch jersey jacket, £100
When Stella McCartney teamed up with adidas the idea of fusing fashion and practical sportswear was a revolutionary one. The competition might be fierce now, but this collaboration is still one of the best sports brands on the market.
3. Ernest Leoty Celine Performance Bra, £95
A supportive sports bra is a must for anything more vigorous than a mat workout, and thankfully new technology combined with thoughtful design means they feel – and look – so much better than before. Technical stretch jersey is constructed with French tailoring techniques to achieve a contoured, slimming look. Full coverage at the front transforms into crossover straps at the back
4. Laura Mercier Balancing Gel Cleanser, £22
It can be tempting to opt for a hardcore face wash post-workout to avoid breaking out, but completely stripping the skin of its natural oils can just lead to oil overproduction. Instead opt for a gentle but effective cleanser. This Laura Mercier gel will help cool a flushed face too.
5. Kenzo Black Logo Stretch-cotton cycling shorts, £155
A designer take on a spin class must-have. Whether you wear this pair to the gym or under a sheer dress is up to you.
6. Lancaster Sun Sport Invisible Face Gel SPF30, £21
Whether you're a fair-weather fitness fan or can be found outdoors in all conditions, the need for a good SPF is year-round. This cool gel will help to keep your face feeling fresh. Be sure to protect any and all exposed skin, especially shoulders, arms and décolletage.
7. Falke RU4 cushioned running socks, £18
You might think all sports socks are created equal, but then you might also think blisters are inevitable. Premium hosiery brand Falke offers a well-crafted fit and a cushioned heel and toe with air channels that help regulate temperature.
8. The Upside Ivy Stripe-trim jersey shorts, £89
Few among us would wish to recreate our teenage sports lessons. Nonetheless there is a charm to the nostalgic styling of these simple running shorts from Aussie label The Upside, made from soft cotton jersey with an elasticated waist.
9. Apple Watch Nike+ Series 5, 40mm, from £399
What's the point of working out if you're not tracking steps, heart rate and calories burnt while doing so? Enter the latest Apple Watch. Or if that's a little too analytical for you, simply load up with tunes that will take your mind somewhere else while your body does its thing, and then use GPS to get back home again.
10. S'well Elan Sport stainless steel bottle, £35
Hydration is key to stamina, so why did it take so long for our favourite reusable water bottle to come up with a sports-friendly mechanism on its screw-top lid? Perfect for one-handed swigging in the middle of spin class.
11. Probeats Power Totally Wireless earphones, £219.95
From entertaining and inspiring podcasts to the latest upbeat hits, the right soundtrack can really help your endurance when exercising. Truly wireless headphones are the tangle-free way to focus on your workout and push on to a personal best.
12. Foreo Lunar Play in Sunflower Yellow, £29
Working up a sweat can lead to spots, so your post-workout skin needs a thorough but gentle clean. Stash this dinky device in your gym bag and you'll get a great lather and clear dead skin cells and grime.
13. Veja Condor Burgundy Mesh Sneakers, £120
The ethical brand that owns smart casual sneaker style also has a more sporty offering. Fusing good looks with technical flair you'll feel like you're running on air.
14. Lacoste SPORT Tennis Technical Mesh pleated skirt, £75
Like a varied diet, a varied exercise regime is key to increasing health and fending off boredom. Tennis isn't just for the warmer months and Wimbledon, with plenty of indoor courts around the city to help you get into the swing of things.
