January sees full-to-capacity gyms, a supermarket clear-out of anything green and "superfood-y", and a surge in the hashtag  #IrishFitFam.

If, like us, you over indulged over Christmas and ate all of the cheese and chocolate in sight (even the pieces in your peripheral vision) you might be feeling like a good month at the gym will sort you out.

Or maybe your new year's resolution is just to eat a little better and move a little more. 

Either way, stocking a whole new fitness wardrobe with fancy leggings and trendy mesh hoodies isn't always that easy on a January blues budget. 

Black crop top €6, blue sports bra €4

Thankfully, budget high street store Penneys is swooping in to save the day, with a whole new collection of affordable and trendy athletic wear. 

Getting some new workout wear can be motivation in itself to get down to the gym, and really, who needs another excuse to hit Penneys?

Speckled leggings €13, bush pink and mesh leggings €13

Leggings are a necessity for any gym wardrobe, but this speckled, high waisted pair could definitely double up as day wear when teamed with a chunky grey turtle neck and black duster coat.

And who doesn't want to wear comfy leggings all day long?


Mesh ballet hoodie €12, embroidered hoodie €12

Penneys is embracing the popularity of the barre class, with silk ballet wrap tops and hints of blush pink throughout its new athletic line, this mesh hoodie included.

Embroidery was also one of this season's biggest trends, so rocking some on your hoodie lapels is a no-brainer. 

Blue runners €13, blush pink runners, €9

Runners are a necessity to take care of your foot and ankle comfort when walking the dogs or sweating it out in spin class.

At Penneys prices, you could literally pick up a pair to match every work-out outfit. 

Water bottle €3, headphones €12

Accessorising your workout gear with a reusable bottle will save you from spending extra money on disposable bottles, and if one of your new year's resolutions is to become more eco-friendly, you'll be fulfilling that one too.

Headphones are a necessity to block out the world and focus on your favourite workout playlist, and this rose-gold pair is perfect for remaining on trend and on form. 

The only downfall to Penneys new collection? Now we have no excuse not to hit the gym. 


Of all of the public places that a wardrobe malfunction could occur, the gym is definitely the one area we would really prefer to not have to deal with that. 

Unfortunately, there is one fashion snafu that remains constantly lurking at the corners of our gym session. 

Whether you want to admit it or not, it has probably happened to you at some point. It sneaks up on us when we least expect it and lets everyone know it has arrived, even if we are the last ones in the know.

Until that oh-no moment in the mirror shows exactly what it’s been up to. Yes, this is all in reference to the infamous camel toe. 

For future reference, here are some handy tricks to use so you can avoid that particular dreaded moment, or just give you a giggle at how ridiculous it seems to practice your squats in a dressing room. All for a good cause though!

Try before you buy:

All lower body workout bottoms should be tried on before being purchased. Try walking out of the fitting room to see what they look like in different lighting. Also, move around in them while you try them on, you often her stories of people busting out some lunges or squats in dressing rooms these days. You might as well save yourself the future embarassment. 

How high is too high?

“High-waisted” and “workout” are two terms that used together a lot. Yes, high waisted pants can be super flattering, but if you're spending a lot of time hiking up that waist band, you may want to pause and consider if anything has gathered somewhere you rather it hasn't.

Marathon runners! Avoid new shorts on race day:

Runners are often told not to try new things the day of a big race. New foods or new shoes are not recommended on race day, and your shorts or leggings shouldn’t be an exception. While you will probably be too busy during the race to care about your fashion, sometimes those mid-race photos can lave you feeling like Chrissy here.


Sometimes we just need an extra bit of motivation to get ourselves to the gym.

As the temperatures start to drop and the evenings get shorter and shorter, it can be a little bit harder to get ourselves out for a run. Leaving our warm cosy beds on dark mornings for a gym session tend to have us feeling a tad reluctant.

However, when you take into consideration having the chance to show off a whole new outfit things start to seem more fun.

We found some very stylish, and practical, gym outfits from around the internet that are sure to give you some fitness (and style) inspiration for your next sweat sess.

For when you need don't want to let go of summer colours:
