“Look like a beauty. Train like a beast”
For me personally, one of the biggest obstacles to getting my booty off of the couch & into the gym is feeling confident & comfortable in the workout clothes that I’m sporting… like it is beyond CRUCIAL! Now I’m completely aware that this concept may seem a tad superficial to some, but the only thing that frumpy tee’s & sweats are going to motivate me to do is binge watch a Netflix series!!! So today, I’m talking wearable workout gear that will leave you positively craving to get back into the workout game.
Aesthetics & Athleisure
Now that athleisure wear has completely boomed in the fashion industry, there is SO much variation to choose from in terms of style, fit, texture & fabrics… so there is most certainly no excuse for you to look anything less than fabulous!! Below are a few of my new-found, favourite workout staples from SportChek Yorkdale that I simply cannot get enough of!
Okay first off, how adorable are these socks?! I love both the colour & pattern. The Nike Dri-Fit socks are super snug, yet they don’t suffocate your feet either… which is so key when purchasing a pair of workout socks! Not to mention, if you ask any one of my family/friends, I have some of the clammiest feet known to mankind (so gross, I am fully aware), however the snug fit really didn’t seem to negatively affect this pleasant little trait of mine, whatsoever! PLUS, minimal foot sweat = minimal post-workout, foot odour! Snaps all around. Side-note: Sorry for the sweaty, foot “realness”… but the non-scent factor is quite a significant accomplishment for me!
Leggings – Nike Dri-Fit Women’s Tight:
I have a smaller waist & bigger thighs so purchasing a pair of fitted leggings is nearly an impossible feat for me! Anyone else?! However, I am nearly 100 percent positive that the term “fits like a glove” was created shortly after this legging went into production… okay maybe NOT, but the fit is THAT good! What I love most about these tights, are the drawstrings at the front, because gone are the days where I spend more time furiously hiking up my leggings than actually getting in a good sweat! The other day I went for a 45 minute run & not ONCE did I have to pull those bad boys up… Hallelujah!
I’m also completely obsessed with the texture. The tights feel very thick, however the actual fabric is totally breathable & wicks away any moisture quite nicely. Plus rest assured ladies, these tights are super opaque so you’re not going to be revealing anything when completing those sun salutations during hot yoga sessions… I tried & there is nothing to see folks!
I’m typically not a fan of anything too form-fitting (especially when bouncing around at the gym), so this women’s tank is particularly amazing. The loose, light-weight fit combined with thick straps & wickaway fabric makes for the most perfect combination. Quick Tip: pairing this tank with a vibrant sport bra makes for an amazing pop of colour!
