Dressing Up to Work Out


Christmas is a great time to ask for some of those things we really want but might not want to get for ourselves…we are women you know, and its often difficult to convince ourselves that fitness accessories are more important than that sexy pair of heels or cute little sweater!

But I believe that the better you feel about yourself when it comes time to work out, the more likely you are to actually GET to the work out and the better you will actually do! Now, I’m not saying that you should don make-up and wear he sexiest aerobics outfit out there, but definitely dress in a way that makes YOU feel beautiful.

I find my workout most effective when I dress in workout clothes that:

a) Fit me correctly

b) Are fashionable

c) Fit me correctly (yes, I said that again, cause the big baggie t-shirt does NOT fit you correctly!)

This is because I am then focusing on my workout and not on the little things we all worry about like “Can everyone see my tummy bulge?”, “Are my boobs moving up and down too much?”, and “Man! My shorts keep riding up!”

Now I have to make a disclaimer…we don’t have to LOOK amazing to workout effectively…we have to FEEL amazing to workout effectively. It really doesn’t matter what we look like when we are doing it because the most important thing is that we are doing it. But admit it, we are our worst critics. So if we don some attire that makes us feel like a rockstar, we will act like a rockstar!

So, hit the web and start making a Christmas wish list of all those great things you think will look great on you!

PS – My personal fave place to look these days is Old Navy. Great quality, fit and price. In fact, the purple pant in the article image are the favorite pair I own!
Not a paid endorsement, just my personal two-cents :-)

Wife and mother of two, she has found a new passion for physical activity! As a young girl, she wasn't attracted to athletics. When she got older she realized it wasn't the athletic part of the activities she didn't like, it was the activities themselves! She needed a bit of adrenaline to keep her interest.
5 years ago she discovered mountain biking, followed quickly by adventure running and CrossFit. And she hasn't looked back! She hopes you will join her on a journey to help more women find it in themselves to try these things too!
