YOU’RE ON YOUR WAY

Gear &
form

Let’s begin on the right foot, with the right gear and the correct running form.
Take some time to watch the two videos below and to then take note of the specific gear recommendations below the videos.
Reach out to me for any questions you may have! I mean it! 😛

Shoes. Shorts. Socks. And More.

Perfect for both men and women,
this is some of our favourite gear.

These are some of my running communities favourite brands. Most of them are unisex (excluding the sports bra’s of course), so be sure to give them a go!

Versus Socks (Unisex)

Versus Socks

There are two main players here if you’d like to support local: Balega and Versus. Socks are a personal thing. If you find yourself developing blisters in particular areas then please reach out to me so I can advise you further.


SHOP VERSUSSHOP BALEGA

Sports Bra’s (Men keep scrolling :P)

Sports bras

​As I mention in the video above, our breasts move a lot when we run and so it is worth it to invest in a bra which will hold those babies down! This Shock Absorber is a bit on the pricey side, but I would really recommend looking into it. It is slightly cheaper at Sportsmans Warehouse.


SHOP SHOCK ABSORBER

Esjays Shorts (Guy & Girl options)

Esjay

There have been so many new active wear companies flooding the market lately, however Esjays are (in my eyes) the best when it comes to running shorts and longs. The shorts are lined with a silicone strip at the top and her pants are equipped with great paneled pockets for all the space you may need.

Her new collections always sell out quickly, so if you see one you like, make sure you’re there when it goes live online.


SHOP ESJAYSHOP BEAN BAG THE BRAND

Decathlon Winter Tops (Unisex)

Decathlon Kalenji top

​These long-sleeved, fleece-lined warm running tops are the best! It took me too long to invest in one, and when I say invest, this baby will set you back a whopping R299.99. It’s a no brainer.


SHOP ON DECATHLON

Winter Head Buffs (Unisex)

Head buff

​Keep your ears and your head cosy​.

Buffs are the best thing ever in winter, and who knew, but they’re great for pandemics too! 😛


SHOP CMIYCSHOP ESJAY

Winter Running Gloves (Unisex)

Cape Storm gloves

​Running head-on into the chilly air can lead to frozen hands and gloves can really help with this!


SHOP DECATHLON GLOVES

Total Sports Longs

TS Long Winter Leggings for Women

Often available on special, and in a lot of colours,  these TS long tights for women are a winter favourite. They have two panel side pockets and the waist band is nice and thick and although not tight, they’ve never fallen down.


SHOP CERISE PINKSHOP BLUE

Smartwatch

TS Long Winter Leggings for Women

We recommend that you don’t jump into this purchase, but if you do, then stick to a Garmin. Everyone who has joined the couch to 5K course with a FitBit has moved to Garmin shortly after. If you’d like further advice here then please message me and I’ll assist you within your budget.



Foam roller

TS Long Winter Leggings for Women

A foam roller is going to do your body wonders when it comes to injury prevention and muscle recovery!
