Fashionable Fitness.

For those who don’t already know, I am training for the New York City Triathlon which happens to now be right around the corner — 38 days!!  Therefore, I have been experimenting with different workout gear to find the best products which are not only functional but also look and feel great. Read my post on Diets In Review for the analysis and product descriptions of my favorites seen below. 

For those of you feeling charitable — I am racing for Camp Interactive which is a chairty that introduces the power of technology and the inspiration of the outdoors to underprivileged inner-city youth. If you would like to donate to the cause (I still have $4,000 to raise…Eeek!) Please click here to donate — Thank you!!

Work it out.

I was never one to buy special clothes to work out in, in fact, I have always been the complete opposite where I alter old clothing such as ripping the sleeves off tee-shirts and cutting the legs off sweat pants turning them into running shorts. 

I never understood the concept of buying clothes just to sweat in them. Seems very senseless. However, my mind is slowly changing as I learn more about the technology of these garments so much so that I find myself browsing a few particular brands I’m fond of. 

For workout clothing, Lulu Lemon has some very cool and comfortable designs. Here are a few of my favorites: Centered Energy Bra, Practice Freely Tank, Turbo Run Short, Run Wild Jacket

I was walking around Nike Town this past weekend and saw a few items there I liked as well.  Here are a few favorites from Nike: Running Dress, Tempo Track Shorts, Running Tank.

Not to mention the two items I already own and love:  Fuel Band & Nike Free Shoes:

Always a sucker for a good deal, here are a few favorites I found on ShopBop: tank & crop pant by So Low and tank, crop pant, and running shorts by Payne.

It’s very cute, but I’m not sure I could ever be that girl in the complete matching running outfit, like seen above. I would more than likely mix and match these.  To each her own.
