Lots of factors can play a part in putting a halt to training during the winter – be it the weather, lack of daylight, demotivation or being too busy with social events in the lead up to Christmas. But what separates people from achieving their goals and being stuck in a rut, is the effort they continue to put in despite the opportunity to use these excuses.
Winter training isn’t easy, so we thought we’d share our three favourite products to help switch up your winter training, keeping motivation and fitness levels high as we fast approach 2022.
