Now that I’ve found a whole bunch of fitness classes that I want to attend, my current fixation is what to wear in the dance studio/park/etc. Being on holiday in California has only heightened this obsession and you may well see me dressed exclusively in gym clothes from now on. What’s not to love about elasticated compression leggings??
In the 10 years since I actually bought a new pair of running shorts, the world of workout wear has massively grown. I googled “luxury activewear” and a gazillion seductive websites have appeared on my screen. Instagram has also been a great resource for finding fitness wear – there are far too many impossibly fit women showing off their 6-packs doing headstands in Santorini/splits on the TRX in lomax/staring out at the Pacific….my brain has nearly exploded. Can I really look this hot (both literally and figuratively!) while doing a burpy in the park? Time to upgrade the JP Morgan Chase Challenge 2005 t-shirt.
There are so many cool websites I could spend hours browsing through them. Below is my pick of the bunch. Happy shopping!
Brilliant introductory offer – I love my £22 outfit.
