Our post Affordable and Attractive Athletic Clothes from last January is getting a lot of Pinterest love lately so we decided it was time for a new post. Let’s just pretend that this was an original idea and every blogger ever will not be sharing healthy and fitness posts for the next several weeks.
Staying healthy is always a goal for me, and having the right items will help me succeed. We hope you enjoy these products and meet your goals too! Refresh your wardrobe for working out in the New Year with the accessories and clothes below.
Because we all need a pair (or more) of yoga pants. The Heathered Skinny Performance Capris are lightweight, skinny-looking and comes in fun, accented colors. And, the hidden key pocket is just a bonus! ($19.80 at Forever 21)
Costco offers a Champion ladies’ sports bra two-pack for only $19.99. That’s right…you get TWO products for a sweet price. The color names are so creative: Black & Fiji Pink and Parakeet & Robins Egg. These supportive reversible sports have a double dry feature to keep you cool and dry. If you don’t have a Costco membership, Target sells them for $14.99 each.
The BCG line from Academy came recommended by two friends on Instagram. Keep cool while running in the BCG™ Women’s Running Capri with contrast-color mesh piecing at the leg openings for ventilation and a mesh gusset lining and inner waistband that wick moisture and resist odors for comfortable wear. This capri features a zipper back pocket and a draw cord closure at the waist for an adjustable fit. ($16.99 from Academy)
If you like to stand out or show your personality when you work out Bskinz has all sorts of funky colors and patterns. Their compression shorts start at $14.99 and these capris run $23 and up. Available in over 125 rich hues and prints, each personality is bound to find a piece that fits their personal style and perfect their next trip to the gym or track. Fun fact: they have a team/school fundraising option if you know any girls who would like to raise some money for their team. They also have over 30 patterns of colorful headbands ($6.99). In the name of internet silliness this photo happened when our samples arrived… and then there was Prancercise (that is my friend who is a Cheerleading coach demonstrating the art of Prancercise, while wearing Bskinz. So funny.)
Start your workout routine out right with innovative Under Armour. Designed to keep you cool, dry and light throughout any activity, the moisture-wicking technology works with your body to regulate temperature and enhance performance. Under Armour Training Victory Racerback Tank Activewear Fitted, ribbed workout tank. 2 x 2 rib improves mobility and accelerates dry time. Strategic mesh zones on racerback for breathability. ($22.99 at Bare Necessities)
I purchased a pair of yurbuds a few months ago from RunOn!, and it’s seriously the best headphones I’ve ever had. Leave your Apple headphones at home, and take the yurbuds to the gym or out for a run. These headphones are guaranteed not to fall out of your ears (perfect for those intense workouts!). Its “twist and lock” technology makes the headphones easy to slip on. It’s comfortable to wear, and the sound quality rocks. Check out the Inspire for Women for $29.99. Target has ten different color options online, I haven’t checked their in-store selection!
With a foldover waist, a fit that flows with your curves, and a generous leg, Gapfit gBalance pants optimize comfort and mobility during workouts while flattering your figure. ($39.50 from gap.com)
AZIAM’s “I Am Pure Joy” Wife Lover features a “Pro-Woman” twist on the classic “Wife Beater.” Custom made specifically for the Joyful Heart Foundation, this tank reads, “I Am Pure Joy” – a bold message of courage, hope and empowerment. Each baby rib tank is custom cut, made of an organic supima cotton slub and lycra blend to assure a fashionable, sexy and comfortable fit. This tank features a gold mandala design on the right seam. ($42 from AZIAM.com)
Investing in the right yoga mat can last you a lifetime. The Under Armor Perfect Studio Mat is uber soft and supports your every move. The grippy sides maintain traction even when wet. The mat is lightweight, making it easy to travel to and from yoga class. $69.99 at UnderArmor.com.
Stylish camisole. Contrast design visually narrows the waistline. Darted seams for subtle support. Colorblock detail on front center. Hip length and perfect for layering. Fully adjustable stretch straps. Sleek, stretch poly fabric. The SPANX Top-notch Camisole Active collection of women’s activewear takes you from your workout to out and about. Did you know SPANX made activewear? ($68 on barenecessities.com)
Athleta is known for great quality workout gear. The Twist Half Zip Hoodie is the ultimate next-to-skin performance fabric with new, Unstinkable Technology you’ll be ready to run. The thumb holes are a nice touch. ($69.99 on athleta.com). Should also probably mention all of these items come in colors other than pink… but ya know Genpink, and all.
The Polar Heart Rate Monitor is another Instagram rec. It provides continuous, accurate heart rate to keep your fitness training simple. They range in price from $60 to over $200. This particular one Polar FT4 Heart Rate Monitor is $64.98 on Amazon. It has over 2K customer reviews with an average rating of 4.5 so I’d say that’s a good sign.
This adorable ‘Prism’ Cross Dye Jacket by Zella is the ideal topper to wear during the colder seasons. Fun fact: the zipper pull doubles as an emergency hair tie! $98 at Nordstrom.
Finding the right shoes is an integral part of any workout. At FootLocker.com, you’ll find the Nike LunarGlide+ 5, a comfortable, light weight and supportive athletic shoe. I’m told they last a long time! The price is currently marked down to $89.99. Amazon currently has them for $110.
Elysa bought a Fitbit One (at Target for $99.99) in November and has been enjoying all of the nerdy data it tracks. Nordstrom’s carries the Fitbit Flex for $99.95. There are cheaper Fitbits that don’t track sleep if you just want daily fitness activity.
If your workouts consist of snow sports, be prepared to bundle up! This NorthFace Thermoball Full Zip Jacket is all about warmth without the weight. This jacket has the ultimate thermal protection for cold and wet weather. And of course, the passion pink color is just adorable. $149 at 6pm.com.
For those of you who are into Yoga you should look into the products from AZIAM. The jacket is called the Dharma Jacket ($145 on AZIAM.com). Dharma refers to the teachings of Buddhism, and can be defined as your ability to do what is just and right. It is Dharma which gives us the momentum to conduct life in a compassionate, meaningful and conscious manner. When you live a life of Dharma, your Truest Destiny will unfold. Be True! This tunic inspired zip hoodie marries function and style with our signature graphics and bold colors. The Dharma jacket hits mid-thigh, providing the perfect coverage to go from street to the studio and back again. The Dharma jackets come in solid or they features a gold elephant mandala center back. The jacket features a self-lined hood, bell sleeves, front pockets and 6″ side slits. Made of premium supplex/lycra fabric for a long, beautiful life.
