SWEATY + SEXY = Swexy. Such a cute piece of media from one of the many workout accessories I'm itching to order today! These headbands are called Sweaty Bands and I'll take one in ever color! Typical workout headbands are too skinny for my taste. You go to the gym and sweat for an hour and all hope of removing the headband and having a normal looking bun or ponytail is hopeless due to the ever-so-noticeable crease that I tight thin band leaves. The thickness of this Sweaty band is great, it has a no-slip-grip and well it's just plain cute!
I'm about to join a new kickboxing gym (partially because Iza Goulart, pictured to the left, is constantly posting pictures of herself boxing and well... she looks like that...) and there is nothing worse in kickboxing than trying to complete a circuit with sweaty hair stuck to your eyeball!
I've been trying to decide on a new pair of tennis shoes for almost a year now. I keep talking myself out of it but if I'm going to be kicking a boxing bag every day I'm going to have to suck it up and make the purchase. I love these black Nike's because I'm not a big color person but I love a fun print!
One big must for any girl, ESPECIALLY when doing a cardio class is a good sports bra. Victorias Secret sports bras are on a whole other level. They are the perfect combination of functional, comfortable and cute! The bra pictured to the left is ideal for me because of the firm padding and dropped band at the rib cage It's perfect for extra support. I don't know about you but I always buy my sports bras a size too small for extra security. I chose this picture for two reasons, first because black and gold are two of my favorite colors to wear and second because I LOVE Candice Swanepoel! Talk about fitspiration!!
When it comes to workout pants I'm pretty picky. I like for the waist band to be close to the belly button (nobody wants to constantly pull their pants up to cover their "fat rolls" while doing crunches) and I like for them to be very fitted. Being covered in sweat, red faced and surrounded by fit people while constantly watching yourself in the mirror doesn't make for high self esteem. Baggier pants not only make that worse but they get in the way when doing stretch centered workouts like yoga. I love that these lululemon pants are patterned but give the illusion of a vertical stripe which is known to be slimming. I also like that the waist band is so high and has a drawstring. The extra security of being able to tie them is nice, especially when jumping around in a cardio style class where the tightest of pants begin to slide.
Last but not least are these Nike yoga wrap shoes! I am totally obsessed. Even though they don't totally cover the bottom of the foot, it would look much less awkward walking from the yoga room to the Pilates room with no shoe on at all. Plus the extra grip can't hurt when trying to contort your body while balancing on one foot with your hands up in the air!
