This week I am on vacation as my Mom is in town visiting from Pittsburgh. While I feel like I’m going through a bit of workout withdrawal, I have been getting plenty of exercise through shopping. This afternoon I had a chance to visit my favorite store, Lululemon La Jolla. There are a few Lululemon stores here in San Diego but I feel that the La Jolla staff is the friendliest and most knowledgeable (the Carlsbad store is super stuck-up in my experience).
Here are the new items that I picked up today just in time for Summer!
Lululemon Speed Shorts- These shorts are so cute in pinstripe. They are perfect for running. Nice and loose in the legs, lightweight, and the perfect length.
Lululemon Define Jacket- I love the way this jacket contours to my curves in just the right places. It is also fleece lined yet breathable so it will keep you warm but also cool you off. I love the new colors they have for Summer!
Lululemon Do it All Short- This is my favorite purchase of the day. In fact I bought these shorts in two colors. I love to wear loose comfortable workout clothing when I am training my San Diego personal training clients and these shorts are just right!
So there you have my Lululemon purchases today! I urge you to check out your local store for more fabulous items like these!
If you’re like me, you love keeping up on the new fitness fashion trends. With the weather finally warming up here in San Diego (it’s mid-August, I know) I want to make sure you are looking and feeling confident in your workout gear. As most of my personal training clients know, I love everything Nike so I’m offering some of my Nike favorites along with a few other fitness apparel brands.
Favorite Shoes: Nike AirMax 2010
These shoes are the best all around workout shoe in my opinion. They have all the fancy and comfortable padding of a running shoe with the lateral stability of a training shoe. These are Nike’s most versatile shoe and are very durable and stylish. They’re gonna cost you though. These kicks will run you $160, but they are worth every penny.
Favorite Leggings: Hard Tail
Hard Tail is known for their soft, form fitting Yoga pants. These crop leggings that were released for Spring 2010 are both comfortable and colorful. (Don’t worry, they come in black too!) The great thing about these leggings is that they are just thick enough to suck in your legs making you feel and look slim. The cotton blend is very breathable. If you act fast, these leggings are 33% off at nordstrom.com!
Favorite Sports Bra: Lululemon Ta Ta Tamer
If you’re doing a lot of cardio, you know how painful and unsightly it is to be wearing an ill-fitting sports bra. Lululemon has created an awesome product that supports your “girls” without smooshing them down. (That’s right…no more uni-boob!) The best part is that sizes range all the way from 32B to a 38DD. If you haven’t heard of Lululemon, be sure to check them out online at http://www.lululemon.com. This sports bra will run you $58.00 and is well worth the post-run pain!
Favorite Shorts: American Apparel Interlock Running Short
I’m not going to lie. I have a lot of these. The great thing about American Apparel is that you can buy multiple colors of their clothes without annoying logos everywhere. The retro look is very in right now. Pair these shorts with some knee high tube socks and you’re the next Holly Madison. (I’m kidding. And that’s not me in the picture there…) You can purchase these at http://www.americanapparel.com. There are 25 different color combos to choose from!
There are so many new fitness fashion trends that I am loving right now so it was hard to narrow it down to these 4 favorites. When in doubt some comfy Yoga pants and a tee or tank will do, but do me a favor
