The hottest gear to squeeze the most out of hol­i­day work­outs with­out sweat­ing buck­ets

PLAY IT COOL

Whether you’re run­ning through the nearby town or hit­ting the ho­tel gym, you’ll need a breath­able T-shirt that ex­poses lit­tle sign of per­spi­ra­tion, but still fits well enough to show off your hard work. Tribe Sports Tech Short Sleeve Tee £45 tribesports.com

BOL­STER YOUR DE­FENCES

To en­sure your work­outs burn in the right way, in­vest in a cream made for in­tense ac­tiv­ity. This has the stay­ing power to last through your HIIT ses­sion with­out drip­ping off with your sweat. Sun­sense Sport Mist SPF 50 £ 11.50 for 200ml sun­sense.co.uk

CON­VE­NIENT KICKS

When you want to slip some­thing on for a stroll in the sun, lac­ing up is too much ef­fort. No strings means min­i­mum fuss and maximum com­fort, while the re­spon­sive heel is there for you when you need it. Adi­das Ul­tra­boost Lace­less Shoes £160 adi­das.co.uk

DUAL-PUR­POSE

When you’re ex­er­cis­ing in hot climes, it’s more im­por­tant than ever to stay hy­drated. An ef­fer­ves­cent tablet will do the trick – and come in handy the morn­ing af­ter hit­ting the all-in­clu­sive bar. Sci­ence in Sport GO Hy­dro Lemon £7 for 20 tablets sci­en­cein­sport.com

CHILLED TO THE MAX

Re­joice – you no longer need to hide your bot­tle un­der the lounger. You can leave this one within arm’s reach and even in di­rect sun­light, as its dou­ble-walled in­su­la­tion will keep your water icecold for up to 24 hours. Chilly’s Bot­tle £20 for 500ml chillys­bot­tles.com

SPEC SAVERS

This pair can do it all. The light yet durable ny­lon frames boast a stylish de­sign akin to a Ray-ban, but with greater com­fort and eye cov­er­age for your train­ing, so you’ll be kept shaded from all an­gles. Nike Un­rest Sun­glasses £70 nike.com

DON’T RUN SHORT

Rather than tak­ing up pre­cious luggage room with swim­ming and train­ing shorts, opt for one pair that works for both. The quick-dry­ing fab­ric al­lows you to move from lounger to lunges with­out the wet changeover. Lu­l­ule­mon Pace Breaker Short £58 lu­l­ule­mon.co.uk

CARRY-ON MUS­CLE

Avoid an in­ter­ro­ga­tion at air­port se­cu­rity about your pro­tein pow­ders by pack­ing whey sa­chets. Rip one open post-work­out for high-qual­ity mus­cle re­pair when the ho­tel buf­fet leaves a lot to be de­sired. Whey Box: the Most Con­ve­nient Whey 10 for £ 17 whey­box.com

SUS­PEND COCK­TAILS

Be­fore a wild night out, off­set your ex­cesses with a quick work­out. Ditch the ho­tel gym’s baby weights and chal­lenge your­self with this pack­able sus­pen­sion sys­tem that has a range of re­sis­tances and can be hung al­most any­where. KO8 Sus­pen­sion Trainer £ 140 blk­box­fit­ness.com
