Steve Madden Workout Tote

Stylish in snakeskin, this gym tote will take you from weekday workout to weekend day bag. Padded with extra protection for all your gym essentials, this light-but-tough hold-all also contains an internal zipped pocket for personal items.

Melrose Health MCT Oil

Supercharge your workout with the supplement that supports the mind and body for optimum performance. "MCTs provide an easily used fuel source for both the brain and body and help increase the amount of energy and fat utilised overall and during exercise when compared to standard dietary fats," says Dr. Cliff Harvey.

"Even relatively small amounts of MCTs (as little as 6g - a little over a teaspoon) added to a carb drink increase time to exhaustion during exercise when compared to carbs alone."

You'll also see potential benefits to sleep, gut-health, and overall satiety, and the light, coconutty taste is a breeze to add into your daily routine.

STAXBest Black 7/8 Tights

Say hello to your new LBL (little black leggings). Upgrade your go-to pair for squats, yoga or training with these high-waisted, super stretch tights guaranteed not to ‘show through' under pressure.

Made with an ultra-comfortable blend of nylon and spandex, these 7/8s won't dig or pinch while you're breaking a sweat. Grab a few pairs and complete your workout wardrobe!

Stand out in a (socially distanced) crowd in these bright trainers for a cause. As part of the Unity collection, PUMA is committed to donating $200,000 USD to the U.N. COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund.

"As a brand and with our athletes and ambassadors, we are one team, united in sport, together for good. During these unparalleled times, we need to be united – because we know that we are much stronger together than apart," says Adam Petrick, Global Director of Brand and Marketing. Have fun with retro colours and chunky soles to compliment your outfit from gym to brunch.

Nutorious Protein Almonds - Caramel Choc & Sea Salt

Treat yourself post-workout with the snack that's both delicious and protein-packed for quick recovery.

With only approx. 2g of naturally occurring sugars per serve, and a whopping 25g of protein, these delectable bites of caramel crunch quash any chocolate bar cravings. Pop some of these tasty little nuts in your bag next time you head off for a guilt-free treat.
