As my regular readers know, I've been making a conscious effort to get (and stay) more physically active over the past year. I've been doing yoga for a long time now, and going for long walks (or, if I'm lucky, hiking) a few times a week for a couple of years, but only recently have I made an attempt to actually be consistent when it comes to exercising. I got a fitness band in the fall so that I'd be accountable for my daily steps and activity, I've kept my iPad set to short workout videos I can do on on work breaks, and I've been incorporating different types of physical activity into my daily 'to do' lists. My husband even got me into running last summer (a great example for me to 'never say never'), and I did my first 5K in November. (A 5K, for those who don't know, is a little over 3 miles. To runners, this might as well be a walk around the block. To this non-runner, it felt like kind of a big deal.)
Now that the weather is finally warming up, I'm feeling especially motivated to stay active. And although I keep things pretty basic when it comes to exercise clothes, I do think that it's important to have a few key pieces of activewear and shoes for working out. Not only can the right clothing enhance your fitness experience, it can also, in some cases, prevent injury. It's also no secret, of course, that activewear has made the crossover into everyday fashion. I actually wear a lot of yoga clothes in my day to day life, and I even have several friends who prefer to have mostly activewear in their wardrobes. It's comfortable and practical, and truthfully, even if you're only wearing it for exercise, a lot of it is really cute. I've been on the look out for a couple new pieces of activewear for spring and summer, so I turned to one of my favorites, Eddie Bauer, for inspiration. The pieces you see above are all on my current wish list. I'm especially into the Myriad Jogger Pants (my husband swears by good jogger pants for running), and the Infinity Tank Top, which I think could double as a great everyday tank layered under a plaid flannel or printed kimono.
Are you a fan of activewear for working out (or even in the everyday)? Which pieces above are your favorites?
