I may have spent the entire holiday season dressed in my favourite snoodie salivating over a tin of Roses, but today I’m feeling a sense of renewal and the desire to quit the ‘couch to fridge’ regime that I’ve been perfecting over Christmas. What better way to activate beast mode than with some new gymwear? I’ve been fan girling over New Dimensions Active since the very first moment I tried on their cult compression leggings, which are the stuff squatting dreams are made of. Co-founded by brother and sister dream team, Orla and Jeff Hopkins — one a former Irish International gymnast, the other a professional golfer — every last facet of their collection has been designed with performance and comfort in mind. The activewear range has now been added to a roster of responsibly manufactured brand thanks to their newest line of sustainable sweats. Orla says: “Growing up in a small coastal town in Dublin, we now more than ever appreciate the environment we grew up in and wanted to do our part in living a cleaner, more sustainable life.” Check out newdimensionsactive.ie.
