Don’t  Sweat  It

Date: January 7, 2022

However you like to move your body and sweat . . . you deserve to look and feel your best while doing it. I’m personally taking time to set some intentions and goals in the realm of fitness for the year ahead. Here are some great finds if you choose to do the same!

Run

Though it can feel like a grind to clock those KMs during the Winter (I don’t know about you, but I would much rather be on our beautiful trails than a treadmill), these items will have you raring to run.

The classic Swiftly Tech is now available in a shorter format, so it won’t ride up during runs. The coolest thing about this shirt though, is that it has Silverescent™ technology, powered by X-STATIC®, meaning the shirt actually stops odour-causing bacteria from growing. Neat!

The Fast and Free tight from lululemon is a runner’s must. The fabric is incredibly lightweight, breathable, and quick-drying. This pant also comes in a brushed fabric as well for warmth on chilly outdoor runs. Plus, it passes the squat test, so you can use wear ‘em for your lifting sessions, too!

I also love the wide assortment of running shoes at Sports Experts – especially these Gel-Excite 8s from ASICS. This shoe features Gel® and AmpliFoam™ technologies so your feet are well-cushioned and supported.

Lastly, track your progress with The Source’s Fitbits. The ultra-sleek Sense watch assesses your heart’s rhythm with an ECG app, has a six-day battery life (!!!!), and is even water-resistant up to 50 metres.

Trying to make low-impact exercises such as yoga part of your daily routine? I have just the things for you . . .

Aligns are the queens of yoga. I love how lululemon extended their Align collection to not only include the comfiest-ever leggings, but also tank tops, shorts, joggers, and more. Enter: the Align Tank Top, in an array of rich colours such as Canyon Orange, Mulled Wine, and pictured below, Auric Gold – swoooon.

If you haven’t gotten yourself a pair of Align pants, please do me a favour and try them out! They are buttery soft, comfy, and uber-flattering. This Everglade Green pair below reminds me of an enchanting forest, and that mood is something I’d definitely want to bring into my yoga routine. And psssst! They come in 25, 28, and 31” inseams.

Can you tell I love yellow?! This Lolë White Tour I Glow mat will bring some sunshine into your life. Plus, it’s made from eco-friendly material.

Lastly, whether you like to sip tea or cool water during your yoga sesh, rest assured your beverage will be kept at the perfect temperature with this Hydro Flask Wide Mouth water bottle. It keeps cold beverages cold for up to 24 hours, and hot ones up to 12.

I love the bright colour of this Energy Longline Bra from lululemon! Their signature Luxtreme Fabric is sweat-wicking, quick-drying, and soft. The support is great for medium-impact activities, like yoga and of course, training.

The Everlux fabric of lululemon’s Invigorate Tight is their fastest-drying, so when you’re crushing cleans or squatting your little heart out, rest assured you will be comfortable (and look good). The fabric feels cool on the inside and soft on the outside, which is all we can ask for! Plus, this crackled orange pattern is so much fun.

Admittedly, I was first drawn to the futuristic aesthetic of these Nike Metcon 7s. I then realized how incredibly technical they were – the heels are flat and flexible to give you stability and to distribute weight. Plus, the mesh near your toes will help keep your feet cool during those extra intense workouts.

Lastly, throw these Fabric Resistance Bands into your gym bag to supplement your workout.
