Getting in Shape for the New Year

By London Designer Outlet

Sure, exercise is exhausting, but the results are more than worth it. You’ll have more energy to do things in the long run, you’re less likely to get ill (exercising beats not only various physical ailments, but you’re also less likely to get stressed and depressed), and you’ll generally look and feel better.

However, gaining the will to get up and keep up a regular exercise regime can be tough. Sure, starting the journey to fitness can sometimes be the most difficult step, but keeping up to an exercise routine can be sometimes be just as hard. Sudden changes in plans, work, kids … All these things can make exercising in the long-term difficult. Here’s five ways London Designer Outlet (LDO) can help …


     1. RUN Wembley!

LDO and the Asics Outlet Store have developed a tool to help runners of all levels, named Run Wembley. With this tool, you can find the best and most scenic routes to run in Wembley and North-West London. There are already beginner, intermediate, and advanced running routes mapped out for you, but you can make others using the Google Maps or tools. Distance, elevation, time ... All can be checked out before your next run.

     2. Don’t Like Running?

Running is not for everyone; and even those who like to run, varying your exercises can help work out muscles you otherwise wouldn’t. Or maybe you you don’t mind running, but prefer teamwork and/or competition? Well, there’s lots to do in Wembley for sporting activities of all sorts. Being the the home of the FA, Wembley has football pitch facilities available in the form of the Lucozade Powerleague pitches. They hold league competitions, too, so if you’ve got a team, get stuck in and see how good you are.

     3. Other Places to Exercise 

There is a mixed-use sports centre named Vale Farm Sports Centre. You can play badminton, football, table tennis, football, and use the swimming pool or gym. There are also other gyms nearby, like Lifestyle Fitness. There are lots of exercise machines available here, and they have a dance studio available for booking, too.

     4. Get Kitted Out for the Outdoors 

Running around on a sports field, going to a gym, or donning your pair of running trainers and going for a jog around the park aren’t the only ways to get fit and active. Outdoor pursuits like hiking, climbing, and camping can also keep you fit and healthy. Not to mention they help you get away from the London smog and pollution! We have some of the best outdoor sportswear specialists outlet stores around in Helly Hansen, The North Face, Trespass, and Oakley, at prices of up to 70% their recommended retail price (RRP).

     5. Go to Play Wembley 

Want to get your kids active and introduce them to a healthier lifestyle? Want the chance for them to socialise with other children in out-of-school hours and potentially introduce them to new activities? Want to get some exercise yourself, but can’t leave the kids alone, or want something they can join in with? Then come to Play Wembley, North-West London’s premiere contemporary indoor play and family entertainment centre.
