Don't Stop Now! Perhaps a leather gym bag will help.

We are now a whole month into 2014, and if your new year’s resolution was to improve an aspect of your health, you’re not alone; 7 million others had the same idea – from quitting smoking to cycling to work, everyone wants to get fit and healthy. With such a huge number of people tackling their wellbeing, it’s no wonder that not everyone manages to stick with it, but if your aim for this year was to go to the gym more, and you've found yourself struggling past the five week mark, don’t give up just yet, a stylish new leather gym bag may be just the extra bit or motivation you need. 

Leather Gym Bag - Duffel Style


As us ladies know, there is nothing like the thrill of a new bag, so surely, with a new one in tow, (like one of our leather duffel gym bags, starting from £90) there’s no way you’ll dread your workout anymore! Instead you’ll want to show off the gorgeous leather to as many people as possible, while able to say that you have stuck to your resolution and that you are on your way to a healthier, happier and (most importantly) a more fashionable 2014!

As well as this, our beautiful travel bag has been named as one of the “accessories that make a difference” by Vogue, an “essential” for your summer wardrobe by The Daily Mail and one writer’s “greatest discovery” after spending “decades endeavouring to discover a durable weekend/hand luggage affair of suitable aesthetics, with a Tardis-like capacity for feminalia without causing bankruptcy.”(Hannah Betts, The Telegraph)
