It is officially the first month of summer and?long balmy evenings mean that there are no more excuses for not getting out for a walk or a run. To help you on your way, here is a round up of what’s happening in the world of health and fitness this month.

Fighting Spirit

We’re loving Accessorize’s new Spirit collection, which features relaxed pieces perfect for yoga, Pilates or your daily meditation, alongside active and swimwear for more high-impact activities. Plus accessories to ensure you’re fully kitted out, whatever the sport. V-back space dye T-shirt, €22.90; rainbow shorts, €25.90; grey crop top, €19.90; Energy pendant, €7.90; all at accessorize.com.

A Bit of A Stretch

Cult Canadian athletic apparel label Lululemon has landed at Brown Thomas, Grafton Street. The space on Level 2 houses apparel as well as yoga mats, bags and water bottles and will even host the odd yoga class and offer advice as to where to find your nearest spin class. Talk about active.

Drink Up

Sometimes, you need to not take yourself too seriously. Water bottle, €21 at prezzybox.com.

Make A Date With Your Body And Mind

WellFest, Ireland’s only health, fitness and wellness festival, returns to Dublin May 6-7, with a line-up of speakers that includes Dr Hazel Wallace (see our interview, page 132), celebrity trainer Faisal Abdalla, author Sassy Gregson-Williams and The Southern Yogi. The event is sure to renew your motivation, wellfest.ie. After that, sign up for the Barretstown Dublin Mountains Challenge, May 28, and make your Sunday workout really count, barretstown.org.

Under Safe Watch

Prefer to run on your own in the evenings? Feel a little safer with the Irish manufactured Run Angel – a connected personal safety wearable that emits a loud alarm when activated, and sends alerts by SMS and email to your loved ones in the event of an emergency. €99 at runangel.com.
