I have never been the girl on the sports team. I was never competitive when it came to sport, and team games really weren't my thing. I guess we could say that P.E wasn't really the highlight of my week, or my education as a whole- you get the picture. Thankfully over the past year or so I've found a few different things that I actually enjoy, much more than a game of Netball or Hockey. Swimming, Zumba, Yoga, and the newest addition to my routine, FitnessBlender- now those are things that I can get into.
My new-found like of exercise has called for some new workout gear, though, and sportsshoes.com kindly stepped in and sent me some Nike products as part of their Fashionably Fit campaign. I know that I'll never be one of those girls that manages to look radiant and glowing and actually nice when they work out, but now that my exercise kit has been upgraded I feel like I'm one step closer.
Nike Athletic AD Tank Top Vest
Firstly, the vest tee. I had my doubts because the fabric feels pretty thick, but it's still so breathable. I won't go into crazy detail but it's designed to wick away sweat, so it's really comfy to wear. It's been perfect in my Zumba classes and for jogging too.
Nike Free 3.0 V5 Women's Running Shoes
Do you think it's acceptable to live in these? Honestly, I've found myself trying to construct an outfit where I could make these work appropriate because I don't want to take them off. They're a barefoot trainer and lighter than the 5.0s that I've heard so much about, but my feet still feel supported during a light jog. I think with shoes it is genuinely down to the individual though, because the first few times I wore these whilst running my feet were feeling it a little afterwards, until they got used to a lighter trainer.
If you hadn't noticed, I've been loving the new editions to my gym kit. I used to throw any old t-shirt on but having some nice work out gear has actually proved to be a source of motivation over the past few weeks. Do you feel the same? Let me know - what's your favourite way to stay active?
