Friends, Romans, Countrymen, I never thought I’d say this but….the gym is one of my favourite places! 2013 marks the start of many new things, and fitness is way up there on the priority list.
Naturally, fashion has to come into play wherever I go. So let’s talk about workout wear. For us ladies, it would seem that going to the gym provides yet another excuse to stress (read ‘get excited’) about what to wear. ‘What happens if I walk into the gym and someone else is wearing the same outfit as me?’ I hear you cry in despair…Well, it happened to me last week! Primark offer an inexpensive gym vest and leggings combo that I simply had to pick up as I was sifting through their sale items in a Supermarket Sweep manner. How did I feel when I saw someone in the same outfit you ask? Absolutely fine, however it sent me on a quest for more activewear so that there was less chance of it happening again. Because let’s face it, we all want to be individuals.
Later that evening, I called on my good friend Google and told him that I needed to expand my gym wardrobe. Thankfully, most of our well-loved brands offer activewear collections in an array of styles to suit all budgets.
