Dame Kelly Holmes has teamed up with Tesco to launch an exclusive range of fitness accessories and clothing for the retailer’s new Autumn/Winter catalogue.

The double Olympic Gold winner has collaborated with Tesco to design a range of quality sports clothing and equipment which includes essentials needed to exercise at home.  An exercise bike, treadmill, sports watch and kettle bell are all part of the new range.  Tops, leggings, shorts, socks and sports bras make up the women’s clothing line. Prices range from £8 for a skipping rope to £400 for a treadmill.

The range features innovative designs which are perfect for those who are keen to workout at home even if they have a limited amount of space.  The adjustable kettle bell is great for building up strength. As it can go from 3kg up to 7kg, it is equally suited to those who want a really strenuous cardio workout.

The new range also includes a 7kg weighted bar which is extremely versatile and is one of the most compact pieces of gym equipment on the market. It can be used to tone arms, back and abs through a variety of workouts. Full instructions and tips on how to use the equipment safely and effectively is provided.

Dame Kelly Holmes said “I want to encourage women to be their best in all aspects of their lives, and this equipment will help women get the body they want at home without a pricey trainer or a gym.

“The adjustable kettle bell can deliver a whole body workout that gives you a lean, strong, physique. Because they require total body engagement and work the major muscle groups, including the "core," a 30-45 minute kettlebell session may be just what you need to charge up your workouts and get results fast.

“When you’re working out you want to look and feel good, so creating these long lasting clothes in fashionable purple, gold and grey will make women feel great when they wear them.  You get more motivated to exercise when you’re pulling on bright, energetic vibrant colours made from long lasting material.”

The gym equipment and clothing will be available in the Autumn/Winter 11 Tesco Direct catalogue and in October the Dame Kelly Holmes sports clothing will be online at Tesco.com/clothing.
