Exercise in Comfort this Summer

July 15, 2019 / Jas  / 

It’s great to finally see some sunshine here in the UK – but what impact is it having on your sports gear? While we wouldn’t like to admit it, exercising in hot weather leads to a much quicker build-up of sweat and body odour. Here at Spring, we’re not particularly fond of having to wash our clothing after every run as it’s costly and time consuming, but nor do we relish the idea of exercising in smelly gear.

Luckily, Nikwax produces two essential products for summer exercise – BaseWash and BaseFresh. BaseWash is a deodorising cleaner and conditioner that sorts out your smelly base layers, maintaining their freshness and breathability. Next step is to use some BaseFresh, to improve your clothing’s wicking properties and cooling efficiency. Together, both these products from Nikwax will ensure your gear performs optimally, reducing the build-up of odour and accelerating drying.

Revolutionary for avid runners, athletes, and physically active people – Nikwax’s products for base layers are essential for comfortable exercise this summer.

Meet Naomi: Spring PR’s Latest Recruit

June 19, 2019 / Abbie Baynes  / 


A couple of months ago, I decided that it was time for a change and made the huge decision that after four years it was time to leave my flat, friends and job in London and move back to the countryside and closer to family.

I studied Fashion Promotion at University and, after accidentally falling into PR whilst interning, have worked at Fashion PR agencies since graduating. Coming from a PR background and having always loved the outdoors and exercise, I was fairly certain that Spring PR was going to be the perfect fit for me and after meeting Stephanie and the team I knew that I was going to enjoy working here.

Into Mongolia

June 26, 2019 / Abbie Baynes  / 


Mammut athlete and climber, Madeleine Cope, has just returned from a three-week trip to Mongolia – not the first place you think of as a climbing location!

At the start of May, Madeleine Cope, together with friend and climbing partner, Hazel Findlay headed off to east Asia. Mongolia isn’t your traditional climbing scene; it doesn’t have a long history of climbing so there are is lot of unclimbed rock – but you have to search for it! If there’s anything Madeleine has learnt from her trip it’s the logistics involved in finding climbs in a relatively unclimbed-country. “We were stepping out of the box. Going somewhere with a blank slate.” Says Madeleine.
