Workout Wish List

Shopping for workout clothes is one of my favorite pastimes.  Here are a few things that are on my wish list right now:

For obvious reasons.

Under Armour has put a lot of hype around this new bra, I want to give it a go!

These look fun too!

I’ve heard good things about this bra from Champion.

Whenever I need to motivate myself to get my rear in gear, I think about some of these things to get going.  Sometimes the right words can be just the spark I need!  Have a happy workout!

PS- full disclosure, some new athletic socks would also be a step in the right direction.

Favorite Things

I work out everyday so sometimes I get more excited about workout clothes shopping then regular clothes shopping.  Nothing motivates me to workout like some cute gear.  Some of my latest (tested and approved) faves:

Super comfortable, great fabric, and don’t have to adjust them at all while I’m working out, I love that.  I have them in black, and it’s my mom’s birthday tomorrow, guess what she’s getting…  They’re from Athleta.

Softest Shirt Ever!  It’s Under Amour‘s Charged Cotton.

This Sports Bra is for serious workouts.  It’s from Under Armour too!

I love a fun pattern, and Nike has some great variations on this classic bra.

Super Comfy, great fabric, great basic!  Nike knows what’s up.

Aren’t these cute?  I just bought them, I’m a sucker for cute New Balance kicks!

I stick to basics for working out because I hate having stuff that has 7 different trendy straps pulling everywhere, or colors that require coordination.  And I love me some Target workout gear, but to be perfectly honest, I workout so often that I’m coming to the realization that I need to wear real workout clothes for the occasion.  Whether I like it or not, I’ve realized a $50 pair of spandex capris have a much longer life cycle than the $15 ones at Target.  And I still love all my gear left over from high school and college sports, but I’ve learned that my weight room shirt from 8 years ago will not smell like anything other than 8 years of sweat no matter how many times I wash it (which is sad because it’s got the whole worn-in retro thing going on now).  Plus who doesn’t love another reason to shop!
