we’re back with another style grid! we’re talking a lot about workout gear these days with the #dlfgetfit challenge so this post that kira created is especially fitting. fun workout clothes actually does increase motivation (at least we think so!).


“I pretty much hibernate in winter, they’re tough in New York City! So, by the time spring hits I am bursting with energy. I just want to be outside, breath fresh air and move my body, stretch, use my muscles. Working out is sometimes the last thing I think I want to do, but it always makes me feel so great, I never regret it. Maybe I don’t need to call it ‘working out?’ Really, it’s just taking care of myself. And when I’m taking care of my body, I feel more invested in taking care of my whole self, like protecting my skin, drinking more water, and eating nourishing food (which I don’t think excludes the occasional cheeseburger- hello Shake Shack lover…). This post is inspired by all this energy and motivation on my mind lately. You gotta ride that motivation wave when you’ve got it! And cute sneakers don’t hurt. Enjoy the post!” – kira

    #DLFgetfit has totally inspired me to be healthier and I agree that cute work out clothes really helps with motivation! I just bought those nike flyknit lunar 3’s in black! my friend and I constantly joke that the best part about getting fit is the new cute wardrobe we’ve built up haha!

    Annie says:

    LOVE THIS! The Polar FT4 Heart Rate Monitor is great as an alternative to the adidas one you listed. I also love s’well water bottles for keeping water cold at the gym.

    Liz says:

    $1k for a gym bag? A bit too rich for my blood.

    AVL says:

    Wow that is a lot of stuff just to get your butt moving.

    Mandy says:

    I like Panache sports bras (found that these help keep everything in place), happy puppies athletic wear for running pants (the pocket is big enough for your iphone in case your like me and hate that arm strap) and I also like a water bottle with a hand strap (which has another pocket). I only wear Raw Threads tops when I run they are moisture wicking and have fun designs. Also better running socks helps prevent blisters.

    i’m still perfecting the contents of my gym bag. it is a delicate process, full of trial and error. i love that sports bra! congrats on the healthy new hobby! *fistbump!*

    Fun workout clothes definitely help with motivation! One tip I read was to wake up early in the morning and put on workout clothes. Right away you’ll feel more inclined to exercise than if you had stayed in your pyjamas! -Audrey | Brunch at Audrey’s

    I recently bought a pair of nike lunarglide 6 shoes and I’m obsessed! The floral pattern is so cute!

    Roses says:

    One of my must have’s are work out gloves, i really like Props Athletics Feedom Gloves. Additionally I also really like Adidas Boston 5 sneakers, so comfy.

    I love kind bars for a post-workout snack and the dark chocolate + sea salt is also my favorite one! I have been contemplating a fitness tracker for a while now and hadn’t heard that adidas has one, so I appreciate the recommendation!
