Now this wouldn’t be a healthy living blog without a fitness focused fashion post. My fitness wardrobe is looking a little tired and dated and after looking around the shops and online I was surprised to discover how much there is out there. I can now look stylish whilst breaking a sweat in the gym, what’s not to love. Here are some of my top picks for those fashionably fit amongst us:
1. Nike Air Max+ 2013 Womens Running Shoes, .
2. Surya 2 In 1 Yoga Vest, .
3. Ayami Full-Length Tights, .
4. Sports bra, H&M.
5. Skinny Seamless Headband, .
6. Sports top, .
7. Nike Pro Capri II Women’s Compression Running Tights, .
8. Grey Polo Neck Top, TK Maxx.
9. Ain’t No Tee by Reebok, Zalando.
9. Nike Leg Print Capri Tights, JJB Sports.com
What I love is that you no longer have to go to sports shops to get your gym gear. TK Maxx is a firm favourite of mine, but I have also been impressed with the likes of high street fashion stores like H&M. Of course Sweaty Betty has always been at the top when it comes to fitness and fashion, I just love that yoga vest.
In the past I’ve tended to just stick with black or darker colours, but no more. A few weeks ago I was asked to review some fitness gear and chose the funky bright turquoise running Nike trainers above and the Nike compression tights. I’m in love with the trainers and feel a bit like a kangaroo in them as they add such a spring to my step. The compression tights are surprisingly comfortable. I was worried that I was going to have a Sandy from Grease moment and that they would be far too tight. But luckily I didn’t have to do my rendition of ‘You’re the one that I want!’
After all of this browsing I now want to go and buy new fitness wear. I’m definitely on the lookout for more funky sports bras, yoga pants, leggings and tank tops.
