The Gymshark Black Friday sale has begun today – and for me, its timing couldn't be better. 

Like many people, I went into the first lockdown with every good intention of emerging with a six pack and fluency in four new languages. Safe to say, it didn't quite work out that way. Instead, I emerged with an embarrassingly depleted step-count and a cotton wool brain from watching too much bad TV. 

So with lockdown two, I'm determined to make amends for my lack of exercise the first time round. (The languages have been put on hold indefinitely.) So the Black Friday Gymshark mega-sale, which kicks off today (yes, Friday 13th), couldn’t have come at a better time. 

Like paying for a monthly gym membership, when I buy new workout gear I feel financially obligated to make the most of it. And with Gymshark’s Black Friday savings rumoured to have up to 50% off their failsafe and flattering workout gear, something tells me I won’t have a hard time justifying these early Black Friday purchases. (Note the use of purchases plural.) 

And the deals are starting much sooner than you’d think. Gymshark have confirmed that their Black Friday deals will kick off this Friday (13th November) and I for one can hardly wait. 

Set to be some of the best Black Friday deals on workout gear, these aren't savings worth missing out on. From smoothing leggings to supportive sports bras, here’s what’s top of my wish list.

These flex leggings are the perfect yoga companions. Their high waist and supportive fit means they won't slip down or bunch at the waist. Currently £40, we're expecting the popular leggings to be slashed to just £20 in the Black Friday sale. View at Gymshark.

Many pools are staying open (with additional restrictions in place) – and with the benefits of a regular swim far-reaching for both physical and mental wellbeing, I'm investing in some new swimwear come the Black Friday deals. This gorgeous bright green Gymshark swimsuit is set to be reduced from £35 to just £17.50. View at Gymshark.

We don't know yet whether Gymshark will release all their deals at once, or announce them gradually throughout the month. (Though we've a feeling that it will be the latter.) To keep up to date with all the Gymshark Black Friday deals, we'd advise signing up to their newsletter here, for news of when the sale goes live, and what's in it.

Will you be treating yourself to some new workout gear in this year's Black Friday deals?
