Work out in style- Outfits for all workouts
If we’ve managed to learn one thing from January 2013 it’s that gyms are hard to get to, and that exercising when its cold sucks big time. If your resolutions need a boost, and your wardrobe needs a makeover, this is the right place for you. It used to be easy to workout- a pair of trainers and s ports bra, but multiple sports and interests mean that you require different outfits. Plus, you never know who you might meet at the gym. so you might as well be sweaty in style, right? All the following options can be adapted for your own particular budgets, so feel free to workout what styles would suit you.
Yoga is a tricky workout to dress properly for., Sure, you envisage yourself looking serene and Sienna Miller like, but to get an effective workout you’re probably going to sweat, and skintight clothing and sweat patches.. umm, no. Look for clothes which offer antibacterial properties and ventilation and you’ll be able to downward dog it without worrying. Accessorise with a cute water bottle and sweatbands, and voila.
Running is a great way to stay in shape, as long as you watch out for those joints. Working out au naturel can offer you cool scenery and interesting paths- and also smog, congestion and pollution. You want clothes which are hardy, suitable for all weather and have lots of pockets. I like jackets which can be tied around the waist and tops that are layered for different looks. To make running stylish it;’s all about color co-ordination, sure, sweatpants and old T-shirt would work, but why not look like you mean it? It might even make you work faster…
My favorite kind of workout is a class environment, whether it’s Zumba or Body Pump. I want to be able to move freely and also look relaxed, so I like to opt for tailored lycra with a little bit of give. Footwear should be multipurpose and you want to keep accessories to the minimum- all about the groove baby!
