As temperatures outside heat up, it’s definitely time to get out of the gym and onto the running paths at the park. (check out BN’s 20-minute sample Outdoor workout for some inspiration). But it also means lazy days by the beach and pool are near. What better way to get your body ready for swimsuit season than with this roundup of fitness and workout gear?
Goody Metallic hair elastics keep hair off your face
Long, sweaty strands of hair all over your face and neck? So not pretty. Why not get the nuisance out of the way with Goody StayPut Flat Elastics? The new Metallics collection even has gold and silver to really bling your ponytail out.
Pretty color, high performance
April showers may bring May flowers, but there’s something else they bring – bright colors! Welcome in the warmer climate with a bright pop of color in your workout wardrobe. The C9 by Champion Seamless Bra in Pouty Pink will make you feel light and springy all over. Plus, it’s created with Duo Dry Speeds Evaporation to keep you dry even during the most strenuous workouts.
Tote it in style with Amici
Every gym bunny needs a stylish gym bag. This season, it’s best to forego the not-so-attractive duffel in favor of a number you can take from work to the gym and even to the beach! The Amici Accessories Turquoise Tote With Rope Detail is big enough to “tote” around all your gym essentials while looking runway-ready. It even has inner zippered compartments to keep your more treasured items safe.
We love short shorts by American Apparel
A little on the “short” side? Maybe. But American Apparel’s Interlock Running Short comes in a variety of cool color combinations like Purple/Lavender, Asphalt/Fuchsia and Kelly Green/White that will really, well, get your butt in gear. At only $22 per pair, it seems foolhardy not to stock up!
Adidas mesh jacket
You’re actually motivated to get up at the crack of dawn and head to the gym for a run before work? Good for you! But on those days it just seems impossible, you need a burst of color in your fitness wardrobe to really get you going. Check out the Adidas Mesh Jacket. Its bright purple hue will definitely open those sleepy eyes. As an added bonus, it’s designed in moisture-wicking microfiber to really keep you dry and comfortable.
