Ryan and I went to the gym on Monday morning.
It was packed.
All us New-Year-Resolution-types who are determined that this is the year to get in shape! found ourselves working up a sweat next to one another.
Our family joined the local YMCA last fall and I’ve been loving, loving, loving the barre classes. I skipped a few weeks during Christmas break, but I’m back at it (in fuller-than-normal classes) and ready to be consistent in this great year of 2016. I was a ballerina as a girl and can’t help but love the ballet-inspired workout I get in barre class. Plus, I come home sore in all the right places every time, so I know it’s doing something!
Since going outside of my house to work out, I’ve realized that my workout wardrobe could use an update. There’s something about feeling cute while working out that makes you want to do it again (I know, ridiculous, but true. At least for me.) so investing a little bit into well-fitting, non-see-through, comfortable pieces feels worthwhile.
I did some quick online shopping and found just what I’d like to wear to barre class:
Seamless Tank: I like a tank to keep me cool, and while I don’t want skin-tight, it is nice to wear something more fitted to check your body for correct position. This seamless tank looks long (a big plus in my book) and flattering.
Funnel-Neck Wrap Top: this looks like a great, easy top to throw on over leggings and a tank for warmth and coverage while coming and going from the gym
Seamless Double Strap Bra: just a sweet nod to ballerina pink. And the double straps are cute in the back.
Leggings: First of all, why are leggings go expensive? Second, I ordered these because they are currently on sale and also they claim to have blackout technology that allows you to bend with complete confidence. I like that.
No-Slip Socks: I typically do class barefoot, but I’ve been wanting to try out socks and see if I like it better.
I ordered a few of these pieces as well as a couple of other tops and I’m excited to see how they look in person and how having a few updated workout clothes inspires me to go to class.
