Put Some Personality into Your Workout Gear

It’s almost nigh on impossible to convince ourselves to get up and hit the gym or go for a run. No matter how many pep talks we have with ourselves about how great you feel afterwards and how badly you want to fit into that summer dress you bought a size too small, the decision to go is harder than the workout itself.

 

That’s why we think Lena Dunham is on to something. This morning she posted a workout selfie, in typical Lena style with no #assout or #squatsfordays tags. But that wasn’t what caught our attention, it was her amazing emoji workout leggings! She said herself that “stretchy fashion statements are the only way I know how to #keepitmoving”. There really is nothing like some new clothes to convince you now is the time to hit the gym. So we picked out some of the funkiest workoutwear pieces out there to make you smile on that killer final uphill 2km or the last few of those heinous jumping jacks-push up combos.

 

Nike Pro N + TC Tour LA Training Tights €105

These bright training tights will bring a small bit of sunny California into your life, which is desperately needed if you’re trying to convince yourself to get up and face the rain/hail/sleet/wind in Ireland!

 

Stella McCartney for Adidas Run printed Shorts ??77

Missoni Pip Crochet Headband €159

You could throw on this sweater after a workout and head to the shops without any fear of bumping into someone you know.
