I am constantly on the search for new ways to keep my workout routine fun and active. I choose activities that I enjoy doing with friends and family that doesn’t necessarily feel like a drilling gym session. In the past summer months, I have especially enjoyed dabbling in a few outdoor sports like a friendly game of basketball which I am not very good at, or tennis which I absolutely love. Whenever I visit my nieces and nephews, it includes a lot of soccer and running around since they are pretty hard to keep up with. All the while, maintaining the sweat-life while building strong relationships with friends and family. Through it all, I have come to rely on having the best workout clothes which are both stylish and comfortable from brands like lululemon.
That’s why I am thrilled to be a partnering with lululemon on this post to highlight my favorite pants for fun work outs and for outdoor sports. I typically gravitate towards pieces that have some special detailing, that’s why my absolute fave from lululemon is the Fast and Free tight 28“. It has some amazing range of colors which makes it eye-catching and fun to wear. The piping details along the length of the tights also adds a bit of an edge to the tights. Most importantly they are supportive and very breathable which is perfect for working out.
So how do I keep my sweat life fun and fresh?
- Sign up for classes: There are apps that make it possible for you to try classes, anything from HIIT to pilates and yoga. I typically try to do this 1-2 times a week to keep my routine fun. I am also competitive so working out in a group makes me want to push myself.
- Exercise Outdoors: I love to run-walk along the lake. Then stretch or do some yoga at a park. With Chicago’s skyline and beautiful parks, I love to take advantage of these perks during the summer/ fall months.
Invest in high performance workout clothes
- Dress the Part: It’s like wearing a power suit to an important meeting you have to nail. I have the same approach to working out. I invest in great workout clothes that are breathable, flatter my shape while letting me move the way I need to for every workout. These lululemon pants fit those requirements perfectly. Personally, if i’m not comfortable in my work out clothes, I can’t perform or focus on working out.
Try a sport you enjoy.
- Engage in recreational sports: Tennis, basketball, soccer, golf. Keep moving while doing something you love. It’s my favorite way to get a work out.
