What a fashion blogger wears to the gym...

I posted a while ago about needing to lose some weight and recently I joined a local gym and have been going a few times a week. Anyone who knows me will laugh at the thought of me in the gym but I have actually been enjoying it and it is nice to have an hour to myself in the evening after I get home from work. I am never going to look particularly glamourous in gym wear but it definitely helps to look good if you want to feel better. I picked up this bright coral top and snazzy leggings at a local sports store, I have never been one for wearing a lot of black so why would I want to change the habit of a lifetime?! 

Top: Adidas, leggings: Adidas, socks: Adidas, trainers: c/o Sports Shoes
 These trainers were sent to me by Sports Shoes and have made going to the gym so much nicer. I love how bright they are and most importantly they support my feet. I used to just wear a pair of cheap trainers whenever I was exercising but since switching to these, my knee has stopped aching which can be no bad thing!


These trainers are ridiculously light and make my gym bag much easier to carry. These Tesco cleansing wipes have been perfect for taking off my make-up before I start my workout, my face without make-up may not be pretty but it saves my skin from trying to sweat though my make-up (niiiice)


A close up of the neon pink and flexi-sole which is supposed to make it feel like you are running barefoot. I'm not sure how true this is but it certainly helps with my ungainly stride! 


Does looking stylish help you feel better when you are exercising?

These trainers are gorgeous! Ever since I signed up for Couch to 5k I've been getting more and more into gym kit, and these nike ones are lovely! <3 Claire @ Jazzpad

I look a mess in the gym, I wear leggings and a men's tee, I do need some new gear but it can be so expensive and their are many other things I would rather spend my money on, especially considering my gym only ever has about 3 people in it xxx

You certainly look a lot more stylish than I do exercising!
When I go swimming, it's fine but I've just started the Couch to 5K programme as well and at the moment doing that I look like a wheezing sweaty mess! x

Massive fan of wearing of what makes you feel comfortable and good when exercising. I wear a super bright pink base layer with leggings and a t-shirt because it's comfy, and it's ME. Good for you for finding an enjoyable element to something you needed to do.

I can't wait for my financial situation to perk up so I can get some new gym gear and a pair of trainers! These ones look fab! xx

Lily Lipstick said...

Those trainers look great - I'm in need of a new pair and have been putting off actually buying some for far too long! x

Good for you sweetie, I'm in love with your trainers! I think if it makes you feel better about yourself, than it's all good. I'm the same, I wish I could join the gym I'm just doing home workouts have you seen that you tuber who does great ones?

She's called Bloglites I think and it's so great to watch as the exercises are actual fun, I think it's because she's so bubbly. Anyway I think once we both start it and start seeing the results, it drives you. It's so easy to pile it on (not that you have BTW) I think it's more about feeling fit and healthy thats all I want ...... She says while drooling at your trainers xx

Love your gym outfit, you look so cool. I look a fright in all but my running gear, I must get some new stuff sorted out x

Good luck with the gym, I need to loose weight but can't really afford a gym member ship, have been trying to eat well and exercise. I need some trainers to go jogging with and these are beauties, I may have to copy you!!

Winnie said...

Great trainers Maria! They're such a fab colour. Good to read you're enjoying the gym sessions. I have to admit that I've never seen the inside of the gym but reckon this will change at some point!!!

Amy said...

It's nice that you're able to enjoy the gym. I wish I did — I'm sure it would encourage me to go more often!
