However, new ftness guide, Your 12-week Guide to Running could be the boost needed to get off the couch, start exercising and lose the extra weight gained after hibernating during the cold months. Personal trainer, ftness instructor and former professional dancer, Paul Cowcher, has teamed up with Daniel Ford, a writer and editor of numer- ous sports books, to produce a series of books which offer an achievable, step-by-step guide to help the unft reach a defnable goal. The books outline how to start, what’s needed and how to make that frst step. Then, using the week- by-week guide, participants work gradually towards their target with a weekly programme complemented by basic tips on nutrition, motivation, stretching and more. The emphasis is on a very gradual approach so participants feel com- fortable and there is constant reaffr- mation of achievements when work- ing through the programme. Each book includes sections to write down notes, which are ncec- essary for that all-important feeling of success and to reach the ultimate goal of looking and feeling better. Aimed at 30-40 year olds, who have stopped doing formal sport/ex- ercise and realise they’ve replaced it with too much of the ‘good life’, this guide will get you going. So if you have been the big pro- crastinator, it’s time to get into gear, and start moving! Oh, and if running isn’t your thing, the companion books are; Your 12- Week Guide to the Gym, Your 12- Week Guide to Swimming, or Your 12-Week Guide to Cycling. New Holland Publishers. RRP $24.99 – choose one and make an investment in your health and wellbeing.

This fashionable but highly func- tional watch, with GPS technology to track your run while outdoors, is designed for high performance. It has an extremely clear and readable user interface that deliv- ers the information necessary to the user while running.

Runners can fnd the perfect route by searching the catalogue for location, length, diffculty and even landmarks. With its wide, comfortable strap, and big, easy to read numbers plus wild colour options, it is practical and trendy too. What’s more, it can be linked to a Nike Shoe Sensor to also track steps when running indoors. The RRP is $219 making it a cost- effective option for runners who want to get the most out of their performance.
