My Relationship with Fitness + Workout Gear I’m Obsessed With

{Getting my sweat on in my home gym}

Fitness has always been imperative and regular in my life, but when it comes to what I actually do, my commitment is much more erratic. I can almost categorize my life by the fitness I was into at the time. In High School I was very into running and was running 6 or so miles several times a week at one point. It was also my first gym membership experience and I absolutely loved all the options available. In college I still loved the gym, but I added in spin classes and became really passionate about them, never missing a class. In my early twenties, I dropped the gym membership and started going to independent workout studios instead. I took up pilates and hot yoga (which I miss desperately!). I did continue biking, however, and even completed my first long-distance ride in a local cycling event. Now that I’m a mom, it’s harder to make it out of the house for exercise, so I’m all about my stationary bike and especially fitness apps. To get back in shape after I had my son I loved the Kayla Itsines BBG app. My abs were even better than before my pregnancy! Now, I’ve moved on to the Tone it Up app and I like that one a lot better. I also have had moments where I wasn’t interested in anything hardcore fitness and preferred daily walks or even just dancing around the living room with my son to get my heart rate up. Next, who knows?? But I can’t wait to continue trying new ways to get my workout in!

Now onto one of my fitness motivations: CUTE. GEAR. If you are ever in a workout slump and find yourself struggling to get moving, find yourself some cute new leggings and I promise you will look forward to your next sweat sesh. Below are some of my favorite workout looks as of late.
