If you do decide to join the gym rather than do-it-yourself then you'll be needing a cool gym bag – and what could be better than a pun-tastic one? 'Gym and tonic' is our bag of choice. But we rather love the other design that reminds us to that we should love our gym at all times, not just January. The bags will set you bag a very reasonable £8.99 each.

There's another brand we won't mention that tracks your, ahem, fit bits! This Activity Sleep and Heart-rate Monitor is a fraction of the price at just £29.99, and keeps you on track with workout goals by monitoring daily activity, calorie consumption and distance covered. Just as with other brands, this device can even track your sleep status to ensure you're getting enough rest post-workout.
