It can be easy to think of activewear as uncomfortable and restricting. I mean, the look of ‘those’ tights are terrifying, right? But, it’s not until you actually put them on that you NEVER want to take them off.  Forget normal clothes when you can be strutting around in your activewear.  Nowadays, we see people running errands in them, having breakfast dates, doing chores – all in activewear.

For those who take it a little more seriously, there’s nothing better than feeling confident and comfortable when hitting the gym.  Luckily, there’s so much on the market which can do exactly that.  There’s no doubt that Lorna Jane is the activewear queen and rightly so, walking in to one of her stores gives you all of the motivation you need.  When everywhere you turn is a sea of colour and motivational quotes, how could you not walk out empty handed?

To celebrate all things activewear, whether you use it for its intended purpose or not, I’ve put together a fabulous and simple Lorna Jane outfit to have you gym or coffee date ready!  But what would a fab sporty outfit be without cute shoes to match?  Luckily, The Athlete’s Foot at Wintergarden have a whole range of cool shoes on offer to help you look the part!

If you’re looking for somewhere to test run your new gear, look no further than Wintergarden’s own gym, Goodlife Health Clubs.  Here, I was taken through some simple exercises and stretches from one of their awesome personal trainers, Anthony.  After some squats, bicep curls and yoga poses, I was feeling better already!  Going to the gym definitely doesn’t have to be scary and you can start small and work your way up.  I’m usually one to freak out at the equipment and not knowing how to use it, but after some practice and a helping hand, it’s really not that scary!  Plus, I knew what I was wearing was supportive and comfortable so even the most strenuous exercises were made easier.

So head to Lorna Jane & The Athlete’s Foot at Wintergarden to update your workout gear just in time for summer!  Activewear is definitely NOT boring!
