Getting older is great for a lot of reasons. Staying in shape with minimal effort is not one of them, I am reminded of this constantly within the ebbs and flows of my yet-to-be-consistent fitness regime. In applying my favorite life philosophy of “fake it ’til you make it” to the subject of fitness, I’ve learned that dressing the part is half the work. Ok, maybe not half, have you ever done burpees? But it does help to feel like you look good! And if looking good isn’t a big enough motivator, maybe the money you’ve spent on all this nice gear and your gym membership is. Whatever works right?
Anyway, below is a round up of some really good looking fitness gear – elevated activewear, as we’ve dubbed it. Inspired first by G’s obsession with that printed yoga mat. I mean she’s right, it is cute! Regardless of what you wear or how many burpees you do (15 on a good day), feeling happy and heathy is the most important part.
Am I the type of person to coordinate my headphones with my outfit? No. Do I want to be? Probably not. But as you may have gathered from my brief psychotic episode over the Live the Process set, I rarely say no to pink. Plus these are bluetooth, so even if you're forced to do 25 burpees (I stop to breathe at 12), you can do them without clumsily ripping your earbuds out as you send your iPhone flying 10 feet across the weight section.
With a little hint of vintage varsity spirit, this Tory Sport sweater is the ultimate cool down accessory. Imagine casually throwing this little number on over the Live the Process set (not going to stop talking about it). Post-workout, covered in sweat, hair a little frizzy. I'm serious, these are my goals.
I’m hoping my excitement for this gear will somehow shape me into the morning person I know I can be, deep down. Are you as easily motivated by good looking activewear as I am? Do you successfully wake up at the crack of dawn to hit them gym? Please, enlighten me.
