These Cute Athleisure Brands Are The Workout Motivation You Need
In the words of Britney Spears, "If you want a hot body, you better work, b*tch." Unfortunately, not all of us have the luxury of a personal trainer to force us out of bed each morning. Instead, it's us who decides whether we head to spin class or continue binge-watching the new season of Orange is the New Black.
For the people who'd choose the second option, no one is judging. We've all been there. If a hot body, health benefits, or a number of inspirational fitness Instagram accounts aren't enough motivation for you to exercise, it's simply time to look elsewhere. Where, you ask? In the form of cute workout gear.
In the 80s, it wasn't just the aerobics that made Jazzercise so popular. It was also the look that came with it: Permed hair, brightly-colored leotards, leg warmers with tights. Thanks to celebrities like Jane Fonda and Suzanne Sommers, the trend went beyond the gym to the mainstream fashion trends.
The lesson? Never underestimate the power of an outfit you look good in. I mean, haven't we all wanted to skip a party, but still went because we liked the dress we're wearing? Wear something that makes you feel confident and even the gym can become bearable. No offense, but you won’t find motivation in that faded T-shirt from sorority rush (especially since you graduated college in 2003). It's time to step into the world of athleisure —the sophisticated rebrand of the 80s "fitness as fashion." Whether you prefer a scenic hike, or one of your favorite group fitness classes, here are some cute brands and styles in every price range:
If you'd rather look cute and work out from home, here are some fitness moves to follow (including old-school Jazzercise and Jane Fonda step aerobics!)
