One of the things that constantly happens to me come February is a loss of motivation. The winter has set in, the weather is cold, and I would much prefer to be eating comfort food. A great way to keep up the workouts is to do it with your partner. If you challenge one another, not only does it give you some one on one time together, but it always strikes up some friendly competition.
Also, lets be honest, when you have on great workout gear it is pretty easy to get it together. One brand that has some great new women’s apparel is Adidas. Their Stella Sport line is super on trend, like this Camo jacket. The colors are perfect for Spring, and all of their track jackets are usually on my hit list. I prefer tight running leggings for workouts and these performance ones hold sweat great. Also, when you can continue your day in your outfit that is a plus.
For guys, I stumbled across Rhone, which is premium activewear for the modern man. The company was started by a group of busy professionals who were passionate athletes. It feels good, looks good, and performs better. Their shorts are my favorite, as most men that I have worked with on sets have felt they breathe well and look pretty cool too.
The shoes! When it comes to a killer workout my feet need to be comfortable. From running, to cross training, or just plain walking the streets of New York. My favorite Adidas kicks can be found below.
How is everyone doing with their New Year’s Resolutions? Like me, I started off strong, and as the winter sets in here in NYC, staying motivated isn’t always the easiest. I have always been an avid runner, and this year I have vowed to switch up my routine just a bit. One of my favorite things to do is take a fun dance class with friends. They are all over the city, and you literally can let loose, burn calories, and have fun at the same time!
Active wear has become such a huge part of our everyday life, and when J. Crew announced a collaboration with New Balance, I was so excited for the launch. Not only are the pieces functional, but they are pretty hip and playful. One of my favorite pieces is this windbreaker. It is not available yet, but I am already putting myself on the waiting list. A big Spring trend is star patterns.
This whole look is totally my style. I love the color blocking of both pieces, and the back of this top is not only sexy, but breathable. The pants fit perfectly, which is a huge plus. When working out, there is nothing worse then having to constantly fidget with what you have on. I usually don’t work out in just a sports bra, so this little bit of stomach that shows is just enough for me to feel really sexy and strong at the same time.
Can we talk shoes? This literally is the biggest component for me in working out. When it comes to running I need something lightweight that floats on air. Many companies are now making running shoes like this, especially Nike. My biggest rule of thumb is to try on several pairs in the store, and take a few minutes to walk around in them.
