Find your inner Olympian
The 2020 Olympics have been postponed until July 2021 but that hasn't stopped Brits from embracing physical exercise this summer. With lockdowns disrupting many indoor activities, people have taken to running, cycling, tennis and more. And whether you're a beginner or a seasoned pro, PriceSpy has the latest deals to make sure you're never sweating about the price.
Run the world
Running is always going to be a popular outdoor activity. It's free and accessible to a lot of people. But it is still worth investing in a proper pair of running shoes so you can keep your feet and knees safe from impact injuries.
Good shoes don't have to cost the earth. In PriceSpy's top 20 most popular running shoes for men and women, you can easily find a bargain. Adidas Run Falcon (Men's) and the popular Nike Revolution 4 (Women's) both clock in at only £26 each.
Find your cycle legs
Cycling has been attracting many new enthusiasts in recent months and the summer is a great time to explore your local area.
A hybrid bike will suit most new or returning cyclists on the broadest range of terrain. Our top pick is the Serious Cycles Cedar S Hybrid 2019. However, if you’re keen to cycle off the beaten track, the GT Aggressor Sport 2020 is a popular option. Both bikes are suitable for men, women, and juniors, and have a medium range price tag of £349.99.
Serve up a bargain
Tennis is also seeing a resurgence this summer as a socially distant competitive sport. If you're just getting started and wondering if this is the right activity for you, you can buy your own tennis racket for as little as £7.99. While this will get you started, we'd recommend upgrading to a racket that suits your grip and personal preferences.
Look after yourself
As with every sport, safety is paramount. For cyclists of every level, a good bicycle helmet is highly recommended. You may also want to consider lights and high-visibility clothing. Even if you're not planning on cycling in the dark, it's worth taking the extra precaution, especially when low sun could dazzle road users.
For more general activities, you may find the need for wrist, ankle, or knee supports. These can be particularly useful for people returning to sports after an injury. Do check in with your healthcare professional before using these and never play through extreme pain.
