drawstring bags
Here at bigredapparel.co.uk we like to offer things of value to our customer and when a customer orders we like to reward them where possible as we have mentioned in earlier blogs.  We are currently looking towards our next ‘tier’ of gratuity in the form of gym drawstring bags, we are proposing this as a gift if/when the customer spends £50 or more.    These bags are very popular amongst both men and women as they are very lightweight and collapsable (can be put folded to fit in a small space if not in use) unlike more conventional duffle bag style gym bags. Also due to..

Regular Gym Vests
When bigredapparel.co.uk launched in early 2013, we begun with just one product and that was our signature series singlet/stringer gym vest in black, this was and still is a very fashionable and desirable item of gym clothing and because it can be worn in a variety of styles (differant sizes dependant on how loose or fitted you would like to wear it) it is popular with most males who prefer to wear workout clothes instead of their regular gym clothing when they workout.   We have never really been asked about more conventional vests however with the success of our recent basketball ..
How I Got Into Fitness
I was always sporty spice, from soccer to athletics as a kid in school, I tried everything. But I first really entered the world of health and fitness in 2005 when I began kickboxing. I kickboxed for 8 years on and off, reaching the rank of number 4 in the world and becoming Irish female fighter of 2013. From here I began boxing and I went from strength to strength, winning a Munster title, two silver all Irelands, Haringey Box Cup and Celtic box cup in under two years. While boxing I did some weight training in off season. I was lucky enough to be propositioned at the gym I trained and ..

Headphones on and switch off
When I get to the gym, I’m like a missile, I am focused and have only one agenda; to follow my training plan and do this as quickly and efficient as possible.   The music you listen to doesn’t have heavy and aggressive, my ipod is a mixture of all genres of music, I feel that any genre and beat can help. I feel that music helps provide rhythm and allow me to time my contractions and retain focus, especially when my pre-workout has kicked in and I have the energy of a train and get the desire to burn through my workout as quick as possible.   Also, when the gym is busy, he..
 keeping your fat levels under control this winter
’Tis the season to be jolly, and also when this season comes, so does the time to begin bulking. As we begin replacing our gym vests and shorts for hoodies and rag tops we also begin to start increasing our calories as the competitive season is over.   It is very important to monitor your calories closely during this period as it is very hard to get the right balance of calories where you have enough calories to provide yourself with a surplus so that you can gain muscle, but not a large surplus where you are also gaining fat.   I have found the best way to do this is to ..

Rechargeable iPhone 5/5s cases
iPhones. The most popular mobile phone available to date. innovative, compact, and with access to all the latest apps and tools that make day to day life just that little bit simpler. But with all the use these phones are subjected to there comes a price, and anyone who owns or has ever owned an iPhone will know exactly what I'm talking about. The battery life on these babies (for lack of a better term) suck! I mean you'd think that with all the latest updates and hardware developments that Apple would have finally been able to crack this problem.    But what can we expect? Fro..

Bigredapparel.co.uk discount codes
One of the most common questions we are asked by customers is 'where can we find discount codes for your website' unfortunately due to our already low prices and consequentlly low margins , we cannot afford to run large discounts like some other gym clothes /fitness clothing brands.  You may notice that even during times of aggressive sales, our prices are still lower and will always stay competivley low without a reduction in quality.  Our range of clothing is designed by people who train, for people who train and we would not put products to market which we would not wear our..

Food for thought , food on thought
Just after eating - I'm not eating that ever again  An hour after eating - I don't want to eat my next meal A minute before your next meal - I'm not hungry at all Mealtime - I need to eat now! This rule we live by is only what I can describe as being robotic.  No matter what we are doing, wether out and about, at work or falling asleep on the sofa. As soon as it's time to eat, we launch into a panic, and we must feed our hunger now. We are going to go Catabolic if we don't eat now, but if you're out and you don't have a meal ready, what do you do? Do you eat unclean..

new product or new problem
We are often asked when we released limited run/limited edition gym clothing/bodybuilding clothing how these colours, designs or sometimes even totally new products come into fruition.   Occasionally this is due to a product not been as popular as we had hoped and we discontinue it after the initial batch however sometimes it can be due to an error/revamp during the manufacturing process.   Though we specialise in providing affordable gym clothing, we also pride ourselves in providing the best possible quality and sometimes colours and elements in designs can be different..
Firstly, I would like to apologise to our twitter and instagram followers, we spoke about 2 new limited edition colours of micro stretch gym shorts been released and these were due to be launched in September. However unfortunately due to a long delay with our professional photographer who we usually use to photograph our products, the launch was delayed quite substantially.    We however are now pleased to announce that these gym shorts are now in stock and available for immediate dispatch and in keeping with the rest of our range of cheap workout clothes, these will be availa..
