Whether you’re working out at home or taking a fitness break at work, finding the motivation to exercise can be an uphill battle – especially during the murky days of winter. 

Even if you’re not heading outdoors, and instead tuning into a virtual class, it can be hard not to give into the hibernation instinct. You know the one we mean: where you wrap yourself in acres of duvet, grab some Dairy Milk and settle for a hard few hours of box set bingeing. 

The struggle is real but you can help yourself by creating incentives to kickstart a fresh set of healthy habits. As a member of Virgin Red, the new rewards club from Virgin, you’ll earn points every time you treat yourself to new fitness gear, equipment or protein powders and shakes. 

The result? Not only do you have some beautiful new kit to inspire your next session, you’ll also have earned points that you can spend on reward flights, fancy meals, hotel breaks and more with Virgin Red and its partners. In fact, earning just 13,500 points will bag you a year-long online+ membership with Virgin Active – to complete the feel-good circle of fitness.

Want a little extra oomph? Get motivated with Virgin Red’s best ways to earn points on fitness and workout gear.
