I’d be lying if I said I was the most fit person out there. At one point in my life, I was. As a competitive gymnast for about 10 years, I worked out constantly. And then I “retired” and went to college … and then got a job  … and then got a bit lazy. You know how it goes.

I go through phases when I work out almost every day and phases when I just don’t for months on end. I’m reentering a workout phase and hoping to make it stick this time. I only ever fall out of my routine because of excuses I make for myself, and it’s time to stop making those excuses.

And while sheer motivation is the main driving force behind a constant routine, cute workout wear doesn’t hurt. I don’t know about you, but a new sneaker or a cute performance hoodie inspires me to go to the gym and show off my new outfit … I mean workout.

So this past weekend, I met up with Elissa from Style Wire for a blogger class at Endurance Pilates (more on that here). Before the class, we had a little fun warming up and snapping some pictures of our newest workout wear.  It was so fun to catch up, work out together and compare notes on our respective new workout attire.

Oh don’t mind us, we’re just casually sitting in the middle of this parking lot. Nothing to see here. Move along …

      It has been AMAZING to workout outside for the first time in months. February was brutal on Boston.
