So I am a great believer that buying a few nice sporty clothes is a really great way to motivate yourself towards your fitness goals. Awesome sports clothes make you feel more confident and can make getting into shape more fun, if you can reward yourself with something nice. So as January inevitably sees loads of new sports gear in the shops, here are my favourite things to wear for a workout!
So I’ve already gone ahead and bought this because it has just got so cold! It is amazing because not only is it really stylish and makes you feel like a pro but it really does keep my whole body warm. I find that if I don’t wear anything over my ears when it is really cold, my whole head feels numb to the point where it’s actually painful. But this headband really keeps me toasty.
So just to get a matching look, and because I really need gloves I also want to buy these gloves. They are super cool as they are black but with a bit of colour, don’t want anything too bright that will blind me at 7am when I run in the morning! Also they have touch-sensitive little pads on the thumb and index finger, so you can change music on your iPhone which is perfect! 18 active gloves
3. RUNNING LEGGINGS
I love both of these as they’ve got great bright colours. The pink ones would go great with a simple black top and trainers. Whilst the “On the Run” ones would work with a really nice dappled grey top. At the moment my leggings are just boring black (which don’t get me wrong obviously has its place) so it would be nice to add some colour in the dreary months of weather to follow.
4. WARM FLEECE
This fleece jacket looks great for keeping you warm outside. It has pockets, which is always fabulous and it has reflective strips on both sides, which you can see in the shop in the daytime so you would definitely be visible to cars and bikes.
5. TRAINER SOCKS
I wear through my socks so quickly and every pair always seem to be in the wash, so I need more. I love all of these colours in fitness clothes at the moment so I have to get them! Plus they would add a nice bright splash to an outfit that is mainly black or dark if you saw them just peeping out from your trainers.
So here’s the definitely “in my dreams” running trainers, I absolutely love them! The multi-colours!! These shoes would just make me feel like a ninja and like I could achieve anything, no seriously ha! And you can customise them to anything, see the one below that I customised. So I’m seriously thinking birthday present?
7. CROP TOP
I want this black crop top so much! It is probably my number one wish. I’m not quite sure why – it’s probably the Ellie Goulding video below because she looks amazing. Like I don’t really care about nike but she is so inspiring – I love they way she says it is so much better to be fit than thin! Damn right girl! NikeCourt Baseline Crop £25
So there are my seasonal picks of fitness fashion, I hope you’ve found some inspiration!
Lots of love,
