January 1st may not be the easiest date to launch a fitness campaign – start-of-the-year days are short, energy levels and the bank balance may be low after the demands of the festive season and emerging from a cosy sofa and sweaters can seem fairly unappealing.
But the positive effects of exercise on the production of "feel-good" hormones is well documented, not to mention the bonus of improved circulation, toned muscles and increased stamina. If this is not quite reason enough to get up on your feet, how about building some support and rewards into your resolution to get fit in 2011?
The pepperfit range has been created by experienced sports massage practitioners and aromatherapists who know all about the demands of getting fit and offer products to support and give that extra lift to your exercise plan.
To help you get in the mood and warm up the muscles before you start, try pepperfit Boost Body Oil. For January only - 100mls is VAT free at £13 (Normal price £15.28). Working the oil into the legs and trunk towards the heart, the essential oils of Lavandin, Lemongrass, Cedarwood, Rosemary and Mandarin will not only start to warm the muscles but with their tangy fragrance put you in the right frame of mind to get going.
