I will be the first person to admit I am absolutely no gym junkie. You'd be more likely to find me at a café than a workout class on a Saturday morning, and while it would be nice to keep it that way, the New Year has me feeling like I should start putting into practise some healthier lifestyle choices.
To increase my motivation, I've decided to turn my attention to something I am a little more experienced in: fashion. I figure my investment in fitness will increase in accordance with my investment in fitness clothing. Makes sense, right?
Luckily, there is a plethora of interesting activewear brands on the market right now making exercise clothing in just about every aesthetic. With colour-block iterations, patterned looks and minimalist monochrome options, there really is a style for everyone, believe me.
Though, they're not just nice to look at. There is so much technology that goes into great workout gear nowadays. From fast-drying fabrications that will keep you feeling fresh to circular knits that reduce friction, and flatlock stitching to avoid irritation, activewear has come along way since Olivia Newton-John was singing “Let’s Get Physical.”
