It’s nearly time for Nike’s Womens only 10K and I wanted to share with you guys a different kind of outfit post and share a little about how I like to work out, it’s a question I get in my inbox everytime I post something fitness related on instagram. What to wear to workout
Everyone has that outfit that makes them feel sassy and powerful for me it’s a great workout wear – a supportive sports bra, gym leggings, top and appropriate footwear for whatever classes ass I plan on kicking. I feel my strongest when I’m heading to the gym Perri Shakes-Drayton on our Nike retreat last year said one of her secrets to a great training session was to look good while doing so and this something I obvious agree with when you look your best you do your best and I don’t mean slap on a load of make up for the gym ladies I mean invest in great kit! Kit that you feel strong and confident in and it’s not all about skin tight lycra you can wear looser clothing if that works for you just make sure you have great support with your footwear and bra.
The outfit I’m wearing here is typically what I wear to yoga, pilates and to stretch. For running I stick to a tight Nike Dri Fit tops, the Pro bra and running shoes. For HIIT and mat work I love the Nike Flynit Zoom Agility.
Yoga – has been amazing for me in regards to flexibility I couldn’t even touch my toes (seriously!) and now I’m doing all sorts.
HIIT – I’ve been slacking on high intensity workouts just because uni was so crazy busy but now I’m done I’m easing back into my routine of three/four workouts a week different HIIT workout are what help me in regards to weightloss as nothing else really works for me.
Weight training – so many women still fear the weight room but ladies doing weights will not give you crazy muscles, weights are amazing for toning and weighted squats are beyond amazing for your tush.
I recommend doing some sessions with a personal trainer if you are new to the gym or bored with your routine in order to have a great plan to follow that works for your body. I also love love love the Nike NTC training app (it’s on apple and android) which features amazing targeted workouts from trained professionals
