Kick up your workout routine with stylish new fitness gear
Sometimes, we need a little extra motivation to make it to the gym. New running shoes? Sure, those will help kick us in gear. A brand new sports bra will snap us back into our routine. Oh, and it’s about time we actually wear those yoga pants to, well, yoga.
With summer around the corner, go ahead and log some extra time at the gym and look good while you’re at it. (Sweat? Nah, girl, that’s just you sparkling). Here’s some new warm-weather athletic gear that will help you conquer your next workout.
What if we told you yoga pants come in other colors aside from black and gray? Crazy, right? This spring, pop in some color to your workout wardrobe and brighten up the gym. These bright blue compression capris are totally ready to help you kick your way through a cardio kickboxing class. Old Navy compression capris, $26.94, oldnavy.com
During your spring cleaning, say sayonara to your sports bras that have lost their elasticity and replenish your drawer with some high-support styles. The underwire in this sports bra reduces bounce by 83 percent. We also like the fun pattern and color–especially if the straps will be showing from underneath your workout tanks. Panache sports bra, $54.99, athleta.com
Classic Nike kicks are perfect for any workout. We prefer a gray shoe so that it can complement all of our workout duds. The Air-Sole technology lends traction and comfort. Nike Air Max Thea, $89.99, footlocker.com
Don’t let wild hairs distract you from your workout. Lock down your locks with a thick headband that features an inner sticky strip to keep it from sliding. Added bonus: A headband is a stylish accessory. Banyan & Bo ultra-grip headband, $8.98, gaiam.com
Sock it to your workout in a pair of socks that spread your toes, which is said to better your circulation and strengthen up your foot muscles. These socks will lend a barefoot feeling and non-slip grippers are perfect for keeping you grounded on a yoga mat. ToeSox low rise full toe gripper socks, $15, nordstrom.com
