Want to move your workout indoors this winter? Here’s everything you need

From yoga mats to cosy gym gear, here is everything you need to make the move indoors.

Since the start of the pandemic, we have been working out more than ever before. With no commutes and extended time at home, people have taken up regular exercise — going on recreational walks, buying spin bikes and following along online workout classes from the comfort of their sitting rooms.

According to a study from Sport Ireland, four out of five people say that doing physical activity is now part of their weekly routine and 90 per cent of those taking up a new workout expect to continue this activity in the future on a regular basis.

And, as the chill of winter creeps in along our normal running routes, many of us will be moving our regular workout indoors (if you have not already). From yoga flows to HIIT circuits to pilates classes, all you need are a few key essentials to get started at home.

Here is our handy shopping guide of durable and stylish gym gear, equipment and accessories that will last you for years to come.

Cosy workout clothes

Whether your working up a sweat in your apartment or jogging to a nearby café, these high-quality workout clothes straddle that perfect balance of functional and stylish. Made from 100 per cent cotton and with handy pockets, they double as comfy gym gear and functional leisurewear.

Indoor equipment

Nothing will turn you off from an indoor workout faster than sore knees or a bad back. That’s why investing in proper equipment is essential. Made from sustainable rubber, these grip mats give ample support and cushion, and these non-slip yoga blocks are a great way to enhance your yoga poses.

Essential accessories

Last, but definitely not least, are your essential workout accessories. These double-walled, stainless steel water bottles are available in a range of hand-drawn designs and will keep drinks cold or hot for up to 24 hours. Plus, these atmosphere sprays are a great way to keep equipment sanitised or focus your mind before an intense workout.


Holder Eight’s latest range of super soft, peached organic sweatshirts is the perfect autumn layer. With a buttery soft lining for extra comfort, the line is made from 100 per cent organic cotton and perfect for throwing on after a yoga flow or lounging at home. Shop the range now.
