With the Olympics taking place right now, it’s really inspiring to see such great athletes trying their best, taking risks and coming through in the end with pride for their country.
The Olympics can help to be a source of inspiration in our own lives as well. With summer wrapping up in the next few weeks and everyone heading back to work or school, it may be the perfect time to really dive into our own fitness goals.
If there’s one thing to really help inspire us to get to the gym or go out for a run, it’s having some stylish workout clothes to venture out in.
One thing we’re not looking for is the typical sweat pants and old t-shirt routine because that’s been done and really doesn’t help to make us feel very stylish (even if we are just going to the gym!). We’re looking for classic lines, comfortable fit, fun colors and most of all, something that will make working out feel fun again.
One great item we found was this Frenchie Batwing Coverup made by Splits 59. As they point out, this Frenchie oversized baseball coverup “combines America’s favorite two pastimes, baseball and shopping”. This unique top is great for working out because it’s light-weight, loose-fitting yet still very feminine and tasteful.
Another item that would be fun to put on once the temperatures cool down a bit is this Fly Fleece Hoodie from Oakley. A dolman style sleeve with a loose fit and drawstring waist and fixed hood, it’s a great workout shirt that won’t distract from your exercise, yet it’s still a feminine and cleanly designed hoodie that will allow for your self determination and perseverance to really shine through.
Lastly (and at times most importantly), we all need a good pair of running shoes to really get motivated. The New Balance 890 is a “highly engineered” running shoe with “superior comfort”. What you really need in a good running shoe is durability and flexibility, which this offers, and as an added bonus, they’re pretty cute to look at as well.
So, there you have it. Get your own gold medals ready because in great workout clothes like these, the gym will quickly become your own personal motivation haven.
