Dress for Success: Gym Fashion

Rosie Huntington-Whitely is the queen of GYM FASHION. Whether she's rocking a pink glossy lip balm, or emphasizing her amazing physique with sexy capris, or donning a Givenchy purse post-workout, it's apparent that her effort to look gorgeous while in athletic mode is admirable and something we should emulate.

When it comes to gym gear, functionality should always be top priority. Style, however, should always be a very close second, because even if you didn't go all out beast mode on a particular day, you should always dress for success. 

Sometimes, just a bright pop of color does the trick.

I don't understand the whole baggy t-shirt and ratty clothes philosophy at the gym. I sweat my ass off, but I don't think that automatically entails letting my appearance suffer. I am not talking about taking and posting a bazillion selfies at the gym, or drenching yourself with Smart Water so you can pretend that you're #mirin, brah. I am talking about using fashion in the gym to help you stay confident and motivated. 

LOOK good = FEEL good. 

How many people have confessed that they don't feel confident in the gym? Have you ever been intimidated about stepping into the weight floor? I know I have. When I first started working out, I was one of those cardio-machine-only gym chicks. But being around such amazing iron ladies, with my personal trainer Karen as my main source of fitspiration, I've awakened new passions for lifting and high intensity training and dominating the weight floor. #whoruntheworld 

The Perfect Little Black Tight. This is my main priority for my personal gym style. I need a comfortable bottom that I can wear to cycle class, a heavy leg workout, or barre class and be able to move as freely and quickly as I need to.

I love my pinks and pastels at the gym sometimes too. Yes, I'm wearing pink but I can do more burpees than you.

I am at the gym for about 2 hours a day, 5 to 6 times a week. That is the only time I actually have for myself, especially on weekdays. Think about why you’re in the gym. It is to work out and crush itThe practicality of what you wear should therefore be of paramount importance, but this not an excuse to look like a slob. Without having to try so hard,  you can let your style and individual fashion sense become an expressive aspect of your fitness routine. 

Color-blocking. The key to wearing bright tights is keeping the rest of your gear simple and pattern-less.

Enjoy being yourself in the gym with your personal style. If you feel great and work out hard, that's double the endorphins, isn't it?
