I recently decided to reward myself for one month of regular exercise with some new workout gear. The real catalyst was splitting the top of the seam of my leggings right before a class was about to start (luckily it was just at the top of the outer side, could have been much, much worse!). An emergency safety pin job held them together for my class but it prompted me to invest in some decent workout clothes if I am going to continue with this whole ‘exercise’ thing.
I had about 30 minutes to kill on Friday afternoon between finishing a First Aid Course and my Xtend Barre class so I dropped by Lululemon Athletica at the Canberra Centre to pick up some clothes. This is pretty much my first foray into ‘proper’ workout clothes, I usually just use old t-shirts and leggings. I am so impressed with these, and the difference it makes to working out is amazing. I don’t get anywhere near as hot and gross because they do such an awesome job of keeping me cool, plus I feel so much better about myself in them. The Barre class I go to has mirrors all down one side so I spend most of the class staring at myself in the mirror. Believe me, having nice clothes on makes a difference!
I ended up with these leggings:
And this bra:

As an aside, this bra has the best name ever: Ta-Ta Tamer! It’s actually super comfortable and I am planning on buying a couple more for just everyday wear.
So that is my first Lululemon haul, and I have to say I will definitely be picking up some more in the coming months to pad out my workout wardrobe.
What is your workout wear brand of choice?
