After indulging in a few too many mince pies and pigging out on Quality Street this Christmas, we bet your new year’s resolution will probably involve some sort of fitness plans. After all, January is the most popular time of the year to take up exercise and adopt a healthier lifestyle – new year, new you, right?
If you want to get fit for 2016, there’s nothing better than getting outside, whether you take up running or get out on your bike. However, when you’re keeping fit outdoors, it’s always important to protect your eyes from the sun’s harmful UV rays (yes…even in January) not to mention wind, rain and dust. A good pair of sports sunglasses will provide full protection for your eyes as you work out. And let’s face it, a stylish new pair of shades is probably the best motivation to get off the sofa and get fit.
To help you out, here are some of the most stylish sporty sunglasses available for men and women at SelectSpecs that will make it easy to get active this year (and ensure you look great while doing it!)
