Sweat Equity

4.7.14-6
4.7.14-1

There is something about spring that makes me excited about working out again. I’m starting to think that I hibernate in the winter, especially since workouts are few and far between with the holidays and my heavily recorded TV schedule. But lately all I’ve been wanting to do is be outside — walking the dogs or jogging with friends. (I’m *still* waiting for confirmation on the coolness of rollerblades since my last post.) In fact, I decided this spring to invest in some workout clothes that are actually cute instead of the t-shirts and ratty shorts that I’ve worn since, oh, maybe college? I also use cute clothes as motivation — it’s kind of my thing.

4.7.14-5


What I’ve realized while shopping for workout gear is that I want to be able to wear these pieces beyond just working out. If I’m going to invest in nice gear, then let’s make this a well-rounded purchase, says my head and my husband. Let’s be honest here, your workout clothes get worn outside of the gym or a workout all the time. Maybe you are meeting your girlfriends for wine but you needed to go for a quick run first. (We call this a ‘run then wine’ in our group.) Or maybe it’s a gym, groceries, and getting things done kind of day — which in most people’s vernacular is just called Saturday. Workout clothes were made for weekends. So I’ve invested in a few pieces that will last me through many workouts and can double as day to day wear, as well. 
So do you find yourself wearing your workout gear outside of the gym, too? I’ve pulled together a few looks (featuring pieces I own) that really work it out– fitness wise and style wise:

How do you make your workout gear work in the long run? Do you mix and match it into your closet or keep it in the gym?

    I throw on a drapy cardigan and swap my gym shoes for ballet flats or boots after running and yoga. And if I get really fancy, mascara post work out. I’m convinced black or grey yoga pants can be brunch or even work approp with the right shoes.

      I used to work in a college town that had a great (ie super smooth) running/walking track around the campus that was fantastic for blading on. The streets of the small town I live in not so much so my roller blading days are far beyond me.

    I LOVE cute workout clothes! I’m obsessed with funky leggings! Just a tiny note, when doing tree pose in yoga, don’t put your foot on your knee! It moves forward and back, not side to side and you could injure yourself.

        I usually just put my foot on my calf in tree pose for that very reason. I’m not terribly inflexible, I just have a hard time balancing in full tree. Hope that helps! (ps, I LOVE http://www.youtube.com/user/yogawithadriene for yoga at home!)

  20. Yes, it usually happens. We workout and then we run errands. the busy life.

    I normally wear clothes from when I played volleyball but they are just starting to get reaaally old. I like work out clothes but find that sometimes they are too expensive.

    Cute workout gear really does make a difference. I find that I’m much more motivated to work out when I have a fun top or cute pants to wear. I already have the fun shoes covered, but they help too.

    I often run errands before or after the gym (after is gross, but whatever, it happens sometimes).

    I love Athleta! I have a dress I bought that I’ve never worked out in, but I wear all the time. Just the IDEA that I COULD work out in it is pretty awesome. πŸ™‚

    I have rollerblades and I love them! I got them for my birthday a couple years ago and I go rollerblading around a track near where I live! go for it! Mine are bladerunners and they are the women's style. πŸ™‚

    Cute workout gear really does make a difference. I find that I'm much more motivated to work out when I have a fun top or cute pants to wear. I already have the fun shoes covered, but they help too.

    I often run errands before or after the gym (after is gross, but whatever, it happens sometimes).

  100. I’ve tried Athleta pants and I’ve really liked them but I haven’t tried their shirts yet!

    Great post! I agree with you…no one wants to go to the gym in a ratty t-shirt and highwater sweats (which is what I usually wear)!

  102. I love Athleta first of all. Second of all, I most definitely like to get a lot of use out of my workout gear. I’m definitely one of those run errands before or after the gym types on the weekends.

    Hey Kendi! I feel the same way, if you look good, you will feel good and your workout will be better! Self confidence!

    Do you mind me asking what program you used to put together the looks? Something touch images?

    Hmm… workout gear… I found a pair of Lululemon black capri leggings for $16 (total steal) at my local sports consignment store and I wear them 3 days a week, easy. Best. Pants. Ever. I would certainly never buy them new, but they are magic. I also have an equally magic patagonia sports bra, and on clearance at $17, it was well worth it (and, while I’m singing the praises of patagonia, my snap-T fleece is the warmest, comfiest thing I have ever worn). Other than those magical items, I just wear t-shirts and UA running shorts (same consignment store). Your outfits are darling!

  109. LOVE these outfit ideas! They are great ways to inspire me to workout and I won’t feel sheepish if I’m running errands afterward. Totally agree that if you feel great you’ll be more productive. πŸ™‚
