One month in to 2018, are your New Year’s Resolutions still going strong or are they flagging? Everyone is telling you that ‘summer bodies are made in winter’ and that ‘summer’s only around the corner’…well we hope it is because it is absolutely freezing.
But if you don’t fancy paying a fortune for a gym membership where you practically have to queue to get on a treadmill, then just get active in the comfort of your own home. We have rounded up the best accessories that will help you get fit without breaking the bank.

Nike Flow Swoosh Bottle in Pink £18 at ASOS
A water bottle is evidently an exercise must-have. This Nike bottle is great because it has a straw inside with a flip cap (just like the ones on Love Island) so you won’t have the risk of it leaking all over you.
