GET­TING KIT­TED UP

HERE’S ALL YOU RE­ALLY NEED TO GET MOV­ING

T3 India - - GETTING FIT -

If you’ve made a de­ci­sion to start train­ing for an event, or just want to get in better shape, it can be tempt­ing to splurge on new gear, a gym mem­ber­ship and a shiny fit­ness tracker. But in re­al­ity, you only need a few key things to get mov­ing, avoid in­jury and stay mo­ti­vated.

Personal trainer Ju­lia Buck­ley (ju­li­abuck­ley­fit­ness.com) says: “You don’t need fancy kit. In fact, you don’t re­ally need any equip­ment for most goals. The main thing is to get a plan in mind and get it done.”

“As long as you’re com­fort­able and feel­ing like a badass then you’re prob­a­bly ready to work out.” Personal trainer Dan Chap­man (dan­chap­man­fit­ness.com)

Asics FuzeX Rush When it comes to footwear, you need com­fort and support, like this pair from Asics. If you’re train­ing for a marathon or run reg­u­larly, get prop­erly fit­ted for some run­ning shoes. `9,000, asics.com
