New Year, New Workout Gear

Sorry, I went M.IA. for a few days -- I pulled a muscle. Not kidding, I managed to pull my pectoral muscle. I was push pressing 105lbs! Yay, but no upper body movements for the next few weeks. Anyway, I'll just sit here, drink my green smoothie and shop. Because shopping makes everything better. Right? I figured why not share some of my favorite workout gear. Gear for actually working out, not lounging around the house or running out for coffee.

New gear always inspires me to hit the gym a little harder. Feel unmotivated to workout? Maybe a new pair of leggings, tank or shoes will do the trick. Yup, I'm talking to all the woman who said they wanted to get in shape this year. This is me telling you to buy a new pair of pants instead of a week worth of lattes. :)


New Year, New Workout Gear


TANKS
I personally only workout in tank tops. Yup, I have a hard time in shirts, but that's just me. Lately I've been loving my UA and TNF tanks! [UA black, $35/ UA teal, $18/ TNF coral, $25]

PANTS
During winter months I switch it up between full length leggings and capris. When summer rolls around it's either capris or shorts. Right now I'm loving UA cold gear leggings. Honestly, I could wear them everyday. Typically you'll find me wearing them walking the dog or at Crossfit. These TNF capris are currently my favorite compression tights! The length is perfect, hitting about mid shin. Oh, and they're currently on super sale at REI.

SHOES
Today, I'm a Nike girl. I finally bought myself a new pair of shoes for Christmas and I can't stop wearing them. Currently I'm rocking the Nike 'Free 5.0' Running Shoe [$110]! Shopping tip: Try and find a Nike Outlet. I purchased mine for $50!

SPORTS BRAS
The only brand I'm currently wearing is Moving Comfort! You can purchase a sport bra based off your cup size! Start with this or this one. I've heard great things about the VS sports bras, but haven't tested them yet. Any thoughts?

MISC.
A few other workout items I can't live without include a gym bag, good hair ties and water bottle.

+  While I don't currently own the Lug Cartwheel Fitness Bag [$114], it's on my list. It definitely covers all my needs with two large cargo pockets, one zip pocket, and a drawstring pouch. These features make it easy to carry my daily gym essentials plus a yoga mat! This bag is perfect from yoga, to spin, to Crossfit.

+ I've owned a few water bottles in my day and right now Lifefactory is high on my list.

This list could go on and on, but these are just a few things I'm currently loving. Hopefully you've found a few new items and are ready to get sweaty.

Happy Shopping and sweating!
