When it comes to picking items to workout in, I tend to lean more towards comfort. If I feel self-conscious in what I am wearing, then I feel distracted and unconfident. The key is finding pieces that work for whatever activity that you are going to be doing and a cut that is flattering for your figure.
If I am going to the gym or some indoor activity, I typically wear leggings or shorts with a tank or sweatshirt. I always dress in layers that way I can remove items depending on if I get hot or not. If I am going to be outside in warm weather, I typically wear shorts with tank or sports bar. (depending on how brave I feel for that day) If it is cold weather, I will bulk up on the layers. I love to wear fleece lined leggings and tops to help keep me warm. My go-to place to find workout gear is Walmart, Target, Forever 21, and Old Navy. I can find quality pieces at affordable pieces to fit my lifestyle and budget. I am totally for investing in pieces from brands like Fabletics, Lulemon, etc. For me, I tend to go to what I know.
The most important piece for me is the footwear. I am so particular about my tennis shoes. I have tried so many different brands, but my favorite tennis shoes brand is Nike. I love the Nike Frees for everyday wear and the Nike Swifts for the gym. They are light-weight, but still, provide the support that you need. The other brand of shoes that I love are Asics. They are a heavier and more supported shoe.
I have been an athlete for most of my life. Therefore, I tend to live in my workout gear most of the time. The key is to find pieces that fit within your style and lifestyle. There is nothing better than getting a new outfit to help get you in the mood to be active! You can shop some of my favorite workouts finds below. I am also sharing more of my favorites on my stories.
