Hit the gym. Well it’s fall, the air is cooler and various holiday seasons will soon be upon us. In Canada, Thanksgiving is just around the corner….I know, minor heart attack, I was totally shocked when I looked at the calendar, I swear it’s earlier this year than ever before, when did that happen?. Good thing that I actually enjoy going for a run and that the words time to hit the gym don’t scare me.
Such a good thing that the fitness industry has been working overtime to introduce many great and innovative styles. There seems to be something for everyone. Just the other day I was walking with a friend and she was telling me all about her new running shoes, black with bright pink laces, describing them as if we were discussing a pair of high fashion heels! So that is pretty much one less excuse not to hit the gym.
Back when I owned my Pilates studio it was great fun gathering my staff to pick out our new uniforms. So many great fabrics and styles to choose from!
I find that when I’m wearing a cute outfit and sporting the latest in tech gadgets exercising becomes so much more fun! I for one never leave home without my Bose earbuds. I could never find any that fit properly and after a lot of trial and error and a little bit of pain these were the clear winners! They aren’t cheap but I’ve already had my pair for 3 years, they accidentally went through the wash and are still going strong!
The other thing that I like to use is some sort of tracking device to keep me motivated. Recently I was approached by a great fitness site, Slimkicker.com, to test a new exercise tracking device. I’m so excited for it to arrive, anything to keep me motivated right? Plus it’s always fun to try something new.
As you can see with all the fabulous workout fashions and cool gadgets, hitting the gym (or great outdoors) can be super fun (and if not then at least you have the potential of looking great)!
