The research is clear – exercise makes us happier and less stressed. In fact, healthy levels of activity have a bigger impact on mental health than money, and it doesn’t take a lot for the effect to kick in. 

Getting off the sofa is easier said than done, however; especially when you’ve worked all day and wine time is calling. But anyone signed up to Virgin Red, the new rewards club from Virgin, has a tactical advantage in this ongoing battle for willpower. 

As a Virgin Red member, you can earn points any time you buy workout gear from a wide range of leading fitness brands – including lululemon, New Balance and more. And you can also earn points on fitness trackers, protein shakes or even experiences, such as a virtual running club membership. 

This means you get rewarded with points whenever you shop for activewear, or decide to do something healthy. It’s all the motivation you need to get moving, with points to spend on anything from business flights to Paris to a case of Virgin Wine (see? You get the wine after all). Here’s how to get started with the feel-good circle of rewards:

Whether it’s a pair of hot new Adidas trainers you’re after, or new-season lululemon leggings, Virgin Red has you covered. Earn points every time you buy with all your favourite fitness brands, including Nike, New Balance and more. There’s never been a better excuse to reset your workout wardrobe.

Earn points on fitness equipment and accessories

Fancy an Apple Watch to track your fitness and take part in world-class workouts? Maybe a brand new Halfords bike is your thing, to get those legs in a (toned) spin. You can earn Virgin Points with purchases from either of these Virgin Red partner brands, as well as from Very.co.uk, where you’ll find weight training and cardio equipment galore.

Sometimes, you just need a little enthusiasm to kickstart your fitness regime – enthusiasm that is cooked up nicely with the wellbeing and fitness collection from Virgin Experience Days. This happy edit includes everything from a mindfulness day retreat with lunch for two to a cryotherapy session at LondonCryo, and a 12-month virtual running club membership. It’s a one-stop shop for inspiration and ideas to keep you going on your journey to a healthier life; all the more so because you can earn points for rewards whenever you book a new experience.

Earn points on wellness products 

If you’re really into your fitness, you may be interested in performance supplements and muscle repair remedies; as well as protein shakes, bars and snacks. Here again, Virgin Red can lend a helping hand with points to be earned any time you buy from Holland & Barrett and MyProtein.com UK
