A little workout motivation

Posted September 18, 2014

I know I've mentioned many times that I have an obsession with printed workout leggings. I LOVE them! They're so fun, and new workout clothes make me excited to workout! 

It may sound silly, but looking cute while working out makes it easier to get out and get sweaty. Seriously! When you feel better about yourself (via some hot workout leggings or cute tank), it's a bit easier to put yourself out there and hit the gym, go for a run or take a fitness class. I look at workout clothing the same way I view the clothes I wear to work - when I feel put together and fashionable, I feel more confident! 

I know I've mentioned Fabletics a few times. I'm absolutely in love with the workout apparel they create. The company was started by Kate Hudson (I love her style!). You fill out a short survey about the type of workouts you do and your activewear style. At the beginning of each month, Fabletics sends you your outfit picks. You can purchase an outfit or skip the month.

I've been buying a new outfit every few months because it doesn't fit in my budget to buy new workout clothes every month. 

But this month, I bought the Earth outfit, and it is quite fabulous.

I wore this outfit to teach Piloxing at the new K-Town Shakedown fitness studio. It was my first time teaching at the studio and it was an amazing class! Over 20 people showed up, and everyone rocked the workout! It was upbeat, fun and super sweaty!

I'm actually going to teach at K-Town regularly starting in October! It's a donation-based fitness studio, so you pay what you wish at each class. I love this idea because it makes fitness more accessible to everyone! 

So back to the outfit. The Fabletics Earth outfit comes with the Salar Leggings in Pink Lava Print and the Oula Tank in Black.

The leggings were perfect for the mix of cardio and Pilates in Piloxing. They are comfortable, but they also have maximum compression so everything stays in place! I also plan to wear these pants to a yoga class.

I probably won't wear the tank to a cardio class again. I love the tank. It's super soft and comfortable, but it drooped down in front the more I jumped around and my class got quite the show of my bra. Luckily I had on my Incredible by Victoria's Secret Sports Bra, which is pretty cute. I think the Oula Tank would be best for yoga, lounging around or even wearing with skinny jeans or shorts. 

Which is actually why I love Fabletics - the activewear is versatile and works from workouts to real life. 

I mentioned this in a post back in July about my addiction to buying workout clothes, but I have the Fabletics Adventura Tank in Mint Julep Camo and I love wearing it to yoga and also to run errands, get groceries etc.

Do new workout clothes motivate you to workout?
