Football may not have come home, but your exercise routine certainly can!

Whether you’re an England fan still shattered after the outcome of a EURO 2020 tournament that really was only decided with the very last kick of the final game, or you’re a Scotland or Wales follower inspired by your own team’s exploits in the competition, it’s fair to say we’ve had quite the summer already. And you might be feeling driven to make it an even more memorable season. 

Yes, we’re referring to the many of you who, having been wooed by this summer’s athletic feats on Europe’s football pitches, might be resolving to get into a sustainable workout routine at last. 

It’s easy to think the summer is the time of year you should be perfecting that well-honed ‘beach body’, rather than starting an exercise regime. But as it happens, the summer is a fantastic season in which to gradually build up good fitness habits, even if you’ve been ‘out of action’ for a little while. 

After all, the outdoor conditions are great right now, and you might even see opportunities to incorporate fitness into your summer holiday break. And even if you aren’t venturing far away from your home this summer, it’s worth remembering that both online and offline fitness classes continue to be available amid the ups and downs of the COVID-19 pandemic. 

That means your fitness routine can certainly ‘come home’ this season, even if football didn’t! 

Now’s an excellent time to tap into those workout benefits 

If you need any extra motivation to start exploring the advantages of exercise, just ask EUROs TV host Gabby Logan, who – as a former rhythmic gymnast – has said of her own relationship with working out: “As long as I’m not ill, I’ve never felt worse after exercise. I’ve only ever felt better.”

But it’s also important to realise that adopting those good fitness habits may not feel entirely natural to you straight away. As has been the case for many of us with EURO 2020 itself, you might be a little underwhelmed or unsure about it to begin with, only to persist with it, and end up catching ‘fitness fever’. In the process, you’ll realise that exercise can be a great source of escapism, self-improvement, and self-expression. 

And if you’re currently lacking some of the practical essentials for working out – such as the right clothing – don’t forget that you can shop for both men’s and women’s exercise apparel in the Hybryd online store. It means you don’t even need to venture out to a high-street retailer for your T-shirts, vests, joggers, shorts, sports bras, and so many more key exercise-ready items. 

Begin browsing the Hybryd online shop today for the best in men’s and women’s exercise apparel, and you’ll be feeling even more inspired to get ‘out there’ and active when the sun is shining and the UK is continuing its emergence from the coronavirus crisis.
