Trends Tuesday: Get Fit Fashionably

By Posted in - Fashion & Trends on March 6th, 2012

She’s going to share her secret! Our intern and fashionably fit intern Margot Horgan reveals a trendy way to find motivation at the gym.

We’ve all heard the expression, “Dress for success.” It’s been proven that dressing professionally will improve performance at work and on tests. Last week at the gym, I had a similar realization. Wearing fashionable athletic wear motivates me to have a better workout.

It all started last week at the gym when I caught myself awkwardly staring at this woman’s awesome workout shirt. With the color blocking design and empire waistline, she could have easily thrown that top on with a pair of dark jeans and gone out to dinner. Feeling inspired by her workout gear, I started doing a little research of my own – I want to get fit fashionably, too!

I didn’t have to search long before I found sites like Lululemon, Alo and Beyond Yoga. With so many trendy (and practical) selections to choose from, I don’t know why I would ever wear a baggy T-shirt to the gym ever again. Instead, I’ll don this No Limit Tank from Lululemon. The lightweight fabric and loose fit makes this shirt look oh-so-comfortable, and the elastic band on the hem is an added bonus – no unwanted stomach sightings during downward dog in this top! This Running Tech Bra from Alo is also on trend with its color block design and is even available in the color or the year – tangerine tango!

What do you think about turning the treadmill into a catwalk? Would these fashionable workout ensembles motivate you to hit the gym?

    This is so true! Feeling attractive when I go to the gym makes me want to work out even harder!! Most people don’t realize this until they start doing it, but it is a total game-changer. Thanks for this post!

    Lululemon is the jam Margot! We got one in Charlotte a little under a year ago and it is beyond amazing! Their compression running tights are the best for hitting the pavement or even happy hour!
