The winter season is upon us and as we look towards brighter, warmer seasons we are reminded that we need to stay fit and keep moving during the winter months. Sometimes inspiration, focus and commitment can solidify by changing up workout gear. The winter months are typically colder and darker in many areas and that can cause us to slow down and focus on being warm, cozy and comfortable. An important aspect to staying involved and committed to your workout schedule is switching it up and changing out gear so that there are no excuses. Find workout clothes that still allow you to participate but still allow your body to move easily. Bulkiness in workout gear is not what we are going for. Thin, warm, breathable layers that are comfortable but still keep you warm and dry is the goal. Here are some of our favorites and they would make great gifts as well!
Women’s Essential Fitness Jacket by CALIA™ by Carrie Underwood. This jacket feels great on and is moisture wicking to keep sweat away from the skin. We like to be dry and feel fresh when running but still need to have this layer in colder temperatures. It is a flattering cut made of 88% nylon and 12% spandex with thumb holes and full zip. SRP $79.
Altheta Fastest Track Top in brilliant magenta heather is a perfect top to wear for winter running. It is thin enough to not cause a bulky layer and has a technology called REGUL8 in the fabric to help with regulating body so you don’t get too hot or too cold. SRP $64
Athleta Hypersonic Sonar Tight in Ember Orange Multi is a fun way to add pizzaz to your workout attire. The pattern is flashy enough to standout but still flattering. Spandex fabric with compression helps to be stretchy but still wick sweat. These pants have a rear pocket with zipper. SRP $84.00
Ghost 8 Runner by Brooks® is a lightweight running shoe that has a well cushioned sole to help with transitions. We love this color and look of this shoe. It looks great in style and color without appearing too masculine. SRP $120
