A great place to start is by arming yourself with the right tools and some expert advice. Back in the Game is a new online content collaboration between Samsung and Netball Australia that gives women simple, effective tips on exercise, nutrition and motivation.

If it’s been a while between gym sessions or you’re concerned about an old injury, it’s wise to see your doctor and get them to give you the all-clear before you start something new.
New gear is a great motivator to get cracking. A fresh pair of kicks is a good start, but they won’t keep track of your health goals, so take it up a level by investing in the latest wearable tech. The Samsung Galaxy range of wearable tech monitors your fitness, but helps you win at life, too.*
The Samsung Galaxy Watch is the bee’s knees. More than just a pretty face, it’s the smart watch that helps you make every minute of your day count.
