There are so many fun options for workout clothes and I am always looking for a fun way to spice up my workout. It seems like I always end up coming back to the same old basics so I’m sharing some of my favorites today!
My workouts typically consist of some sort of weight training and cardio classes. Currently I’m training with some friends for a 1/2 Marathon in December so most of the cardio has been coming from running these days. While I do wear shorts in the really hot months of summer, I typically prefer to wear some sort of workout leggings. Especially when running, if I want to avoid the chub rub, I almost exclusively wear leggings. I also prefer a top that is long enough to give me some coverage and unfitted enough to avoid the muffin top even when I’m in the middle of my workout. Even after squatting and standing back up this tank stays put!
I’ve tried Lulu workout pants in the past and while I do love the feel of them, I always had trouble with them falling down. I found these Zella workout pants and fell in love! Plus the price for these workout pants seems much more reasonable to me and I always stalk them at Nordstroms and watch for the sale.

During the anniversary sale I also picked up some Nike leggings and I love that they have the rubber around the upper waistband to help them stay put.

I’ve had the best luck with finding tanks at Target and Old Navy.

When I first started weight training I had a hard time keeping my form with my heavier running shoes and my trainer suggested I look at more of a cross training shoe. I found these and I love them. There are lots of other options out there and all seem to come in fun colors!
I have a very high arch and when running my favorite shoes are Mizuno. I’ve tried Brooks and Asics but Mizuno brand just works best for my foot. If you are interested in running I highly suggest visiting a local running store to let them evaluate your foot and watch you on a treadmill to help determine what shoe is best for you.
Lots of options here
My best advice is to find workout gear that is the most comfortable for you. If you are comfortable and feel confident in your workout clothes you are more likely to work harder!
