Great Workout Gear for Women 2016

Great Workout Gear for Women | The Fresh Exchange

Though I will not be jumping into a workout routine in January being 35 weeks pregnant this week, I still am eyeing all the awesome workout gear for the year. I am itching to get back to my normal workout routine these days even though I know it won’t be probably till later this Spring. I miss the sweaty days at a gym that leave me feeling positive, excited, and focused on life. These days I am focusing on walking for a few miles a day and getting in some prenatal yoga three times a week. It isn’t the easiest to slow down for someone who built their day around their gym visits, but it is a good challenge of letting go and learning to be patient in this time.

So, to keep me excited about the Spring and to inspire many of you who are most likely looking to get active right now or in the coming months, I have rounded up some of my favorite gear for the season. I have always been someone who loves fitness wear and feel most myself while wearing it. Thus, I always love finding a new pair of leggings or rocking sneakers. That said, whether you plan to get a massive sweat on, go to yoga, hike a favorite trail, walk around your neighborhood, or run errands these are the perfect pieces to help you make the most of whatever level of workingout you plan to bring into the new year.

This month we will be sharing more fitness posts than normal. You will also be seeing them integrating more content focused on healthy living as the year progresses. Working out and health is a huge part of Mike and I’s life as we feel when we are the healthiest so our creative life and business life follows.

I LIVE for a good pair of workout shoes. Since this time of year this is about the only workout item that matters in my life I have been eyeing all that is out there right now. I try to veer from Nike but ultimately I usually find myself back there no matter what. They have some of the most hip designs and most comfortable options.

The search for a good top is endless and all depends on what you like. In the warmer months I loved having a cropped top or cool bra I could wear under a mesh tank or loose tank whether I was doing cardio or going to yoga. If that isn’t your thing a good tank will suffice. Just find something that breaths well and repels the smell of your workout.

Depending on what you feel most comfortable in, I think there are some amazing bottom options out there these days. Even more so these are all great options to join your friends for brunch or for lunch after yoga or your workout without feeling like a complete slob. Personally, I am loving the insets of mesh in leggings as I get pretty warm during my workout and it is nice to have the extra ventalation behind my knees.
