Funky Workout Gear

With the hectic December filled with dinner parties, alcohol and way too much sugar behind us, all I see in the mirror is new fat coating my stomach and thighs. It's definitely time to get back into shape!!! Three things motivate me to go back to the gym: a great playlist, new workout gear, and an appointment with a friend or personal trainer. I decided that out of the three, I need a few new pieces for the gym to really encourage and inspire me to move my butt! 

Activewear doesn't have to be boring - be creative and you can look as stylish in the gym as you do elsewhere. Complete the look with colourful trainers and a really cool bag and you can easily wear your gym outfit to run errands or join friends for lunch or coffee. 

My favourite brands are Lululemon for pants (they make my ass perky and my legs look skinny!), Adidas by Stella McCartney for stylish yet functional clothes, and Swetty Betty for accessories.

P.S. As always. click on the names of the items below the pics to go to their websites where they can be purchased or better viewed

Here are a few items I'm currently coveting:

STELLA McCARTNEY makes the coolest workout clothes for Adidas
Aren't these tights really different?

ADIDAS by STELLA McCARTNEY run loose tank
This is currently on sale and can be found at Adidas stores in the U.A.E

Green glow in the dark tights and the Astro Wunder Under Crop by LULULEMON
Even after washing Lululemons a million times, they retain their colour, shape and elasticity.
This is  the only brand that makes me look slim at the gym! Definitely worth it.
You can choose from many different cuts and flares of pants and tops

It's ALL about stripes this season!
No limits tank by LULULEMON

I love the lace panelling at the bottom of this black tank.
I plan on layering it over a coloured tank or sports bra

Your sports bra is just as much part of your gym outfit as your tights and top. Funk up your outfit by layering coloured bras under tank tops. 
SWETTY BETTY makes really cool coloured ones with great support

If Yoga or Pilates is your sport of choice, then this is the mat for you.
With its extra cushioning and support, it will make those poses a lot more comfortable!

SWETTY BETTY makes really cute, girly gym accessories.
Clockwise from top: Sneaker balls to keep your trainers, gym bags and boxing gloves smelling of green apples, Pink Skipping ropePink re-useableWater bottleGloves- these are super comfortable and the velcro fastening makes them easy to put on and take off, 

NIKE Lunarglide 4 ID
NIKE makes bright and comfy running shoes that can be customized to your taste

I am extremely tempted to purchase these Chanel running shoes!
Perhaps they are more fashion than function?

What do you wear to workout? Do you have any favourite brands?
