Look good, feel good high impact fitness fashion, says Annmarie O’Connor.
It’s 2016: Time to shape up and look your personal best.
Ditch the tired trackie bottoms and supercharge those workouts with fitness fashion that makes you look and feel like a style champ.
Think lightweight, thermal and breathable fabrics with moisture-wicking and strategically-placed mesh vents for maximum comfort that’ll allow you to keep your eye on the game.
From big brands to budget-friendly ranges, there’s no denying it – the sporty look is anyone’s game.
* RUNNING & BOOTCAMP: Make any outdoor endeavours that bit easier with seam-free tops and pants that stretch with you for a smooth, distraction-free fit. Tip? Look to pieces that are thermoregulated to keep the body at optimal temperature while you train.
* ZUMBA & HOT YOGA: A drawstring waistband help keep leggings in place when posing in Cobra or dancing to a beat. Make sure your sports bra matches your impact level for maximum performance: low for Hatha devotees; high for Zumba fans.
* CARDIO & KETTELEBELLS: Look to a fitness shoe like Nike’s ‘Free 5.0; mesh sneakers that are designed to anchor the foot securely in place. Lightweight and breathable too, this pair boasts a foam insole that moulds to the heel for increased stability.
