They always say that summer bodies are built in winter – but let’s be honest – there are very few people who have the motivation and dedication to step foot outside on a winter’s day to exercise.
Summer, on the other hand, is another kettle of fish. Whether you’re spending the day outside with your friends or toying with the idea of working out, there is no denying that warm weather makes you feel happy. So, before you jump into your first workout, it is advised that you begin slowly. If you choose a strenuous approach, you can injure yourself or, potentially, abandon your fitness journey after your first day. Take it slow and invest in the correct sporting gear.
Here are four of the Canal Walk sporting equipment stores that can help kickstart your fitness, affordably.
