Every so often we come across a fitness outfit that combines elements of durability, cuteness and comfy-ness. All of you fitness fanatics who are looking for your next shopping fix, look no further! We’ve put together a few of our favorite items to get you fired up for fitness in 2012.
We chose the C9 Long and Lean tank because there’s nothing we hate more at the gym than a tank that rides up while cycling or doing 100 jumping jacks in body pump! The C9 line is comfy and yet super affordable ($11.99 right now for this tank at Target), so you won’t feel bad if you to wear it out in a few weeks (good for you!) Just get another!
lululemon is the pinnacle of comfy and durable yoga and fitness wear, but it can get pricey. This crop, about $87, is ‘da bomb, though, and with a little pocket on the back for a credit card or ID, it’s super convenient. You won’t get enough of these pants. And everyone loves a crop for cycling, lifting, zumba and pilates – there’s no way your pants will get in the way of your movements.
Don't forget about your feet. We love this slip-on kigo shoe in its flit style for going to and from yoga and the supermarket, and for your strength training,or zumba classes. That's because they are amply wide, and I find sneakers are too constraining unless I am running or cycling. These make your feet feel free and comfortable. The "barefoot lifestyle" shoe in the Mary Jane style, $87, is made from post-consumer and recycled materials and certified non-toxic dyes, glues and water/stain resistance. They wear four ounces each, so you can kick lift those legs higher during workouts, sista!
