Find­ing the mo­ti­va­tion to work up a real sweat, whether that’s go­ing for a morn­ing run or an af­ter-work gym ses­sion, can be tough at this time of year when it’s still dark most of the day. The good news is that spring is just around the cor­ner and you can start that sea­son in bet­ter shape if you treat your­self to some new work­out kit right now. Why? Wear­ing new ex­er­cise cloth­ing can give you the added willpower you need to start mov­ing, and sim­ply putting on your fresh clob­ber gets you in the right frame of mind for ex­er­cise and in­creases the chances of you train­ing that day, ac­cord­ing to re­search from North­west­ern Uni­ver­sity in the US. So treat your­self to a new top and shorts or leg­gings – bright colours are good, es­pe­cially if you’ll be run­ning out­side – and put them on first thing Satur­day morn­ing to boost your chances of in­creas­ing your ac­tiv­ity lev­els.
