Fitness Fashion: Working Out in Style

I’ve recently started working out regularly. Things started
to jiggle in places they weren’t meant to, and before they got out of control, I
decided to bite the bullet and get moving.
I haven’t strapped on a pair of sneakers to exercise in
years. Needless to say my workout gear consisted of over-sized promotional
t-shirts doled out by local companies over the years and shiny American Apparel
tights that have no business on anyone much less someone attempting to workout
My eleven year-old sister (a fashionista in her own right) was
sweet enough to gift me with a couple pairs of running shorts for Christmas,
her subtle hint that it was time to get my workout wardrobe in order. I got the
message loud and clear, you don’t have to look scruffy when working up a sweat.
If your workout gear leaves you less than motivated to get
moving, here’s how to get your workout wear in shape.
Zobha floral tank
Fashionable and practical, neon is tres chic and transitions
easily from the gym to running errands about town. With stylish brands such as
Lululemon and Sweaty Betty adding a bold pop of neon into their lines it’s easy
to shine bright while shedding pounds.
Spring’s floral trend isn’t just for sundresses and delicate
skirts. Who says you can’t wear prints and do push ups? Fitness can be feminine
with delicate floral prints that make you feel like a woman while working up a
sweat. A floral workout ensemble transitions easily from your morning spin
class to brunch with the girls.
Whether you’re an A-cup or double D-cup, giving your bust
the support it needs while you’re working out is important. Look for a sports
bra that lifts, separates and supports, especially if you have a fuller bust
line and prefer running as your form of cardio exercise. I am obsessed with the
Ta Ta Tamer by Lululemon. It has four-way stretch, wicks away moisture, is
chafe resistant and breathable. Making sure the ‘girls’ aren’t going anywhere
while you tackle the stair master.

Nike+ Fuel Band
I am obsessed with my Nike+ Running application on my iPhone
which allows me to track the running distance, the amount of calories I burn
and challenge myself by synching my running stats with my friends who use the
application as well.
If you don’t have an iPhone or android, the Nike+ Fuel Band is
a great way to measure your everyday activity. It tracks running, walking,
dancing, basketball and dozens of everyday activities, calculating calories
burned, steps taken and more. The band also does double duty as a watch. Helping
you to measure your progress and keep a clear eye on your fitness goals.
What you wear to the gym isn't as important as actually
getting there and working out – but the right gear can help you feel more
comfortable and confident as you exercise.
