Fitness Style: How to Take Your Outfit from Day to the Gym

Thank you Vocalpoint and DICK’S Sporting Goods for sponsoring this post!Dick's-Sporting-Goods-Under-Armour-Sports-bras

On Monday I had to be in Westchester to test out a salon and on my way over stopped at DICK’S Sporting Goods in White Plains to stock up on some new workout gear. They carry so many of my favorite brands including Brook’s Running, Nike, Adidas, Reebok, Under Armour… basically every major women’s fitness brand that is both fashionable and functional. The athleisure trend has full on taken over my life ever since I started cycling twice a week and going to the gym to get into shape for my People StyleWatch bathing suit shoot (coming out in May!) and now gearing up for LA and Coachella — gotta get my beach bod on…

Dick’s Sporting Goods Haul: Under Armour outfit, Brooks Running Glycerin 13 shoes

Being constantly on the go and the fact that you can’t wear workout clothes twice without washing them has has me hoarding fitness attire. Shopping the aisles, DICK’s has a great assortment of basics and prints and name brands at great prices. Plus the store is massive so there is a ton of women’s apparel and sneakers to pick from.

Being an fitness enthusiast has taught me a few things beyond getting into shape, mainly how to take an outfit from brunch friendly or running errands to the gym. My latest DICK’S haul included the following Under Armour outfit and Brooks Running Sneakers (featured above):

Taking the outfit above from fitness to fashionable only required a top and shoe swap (and an added kimono for good measure):


I’m wearing the Under Armour Capris and Sports Bra in the look above. I strategically fit my Brooks Running sneakers in a medium size purse so I don’t have to carry an extra gym bag. For any fellow cyclers (I go to Cyc), my membership includes shoe rentals which makes it even easier. When I’m

The thing about having spinal surgery, is once you get through it, you have a new lease on life. As some of you know I was in the hospital less then 2 weeks ago to get a herniated disc removed. And I can’t even begin to tell you how amazing I feel now that it’s done. It was an easy recovery and within three days of doing it I felt so much better then I did the 2 months prior when it was in my body.  And after going through it I am more committed then ever to working out, eating right and taking the best care of my body. Prior the the surgery I went to two sporting events, one with Eddie Bauer, and the other with Brooks Running and this weekend I was ready to put them on and start the recovery process. For starters it was the NYC marathon and watching those amazing warriors run through my neighborhood always gets me amped to move.


And speaking of the marathon, Brooks Running released the first limited edition marathon shoe for this years event. It’s a version of their classic Adrenaline GTS style and has lady liberty graphics on it. You can expect more marathon themed kicks coming soon for big races like Boston and other cities.

Another accessory, I’m super excited about is Eddie Bauer Zen Tote, it has all of these awesome pockets and straps for your yoga matte. While I’m still not allowed to do a lot of yoga poses and get back in the classroom, one of my favorite things is to take my matte to the waterfront and stretch. Their Movement leggings are also AWESOME! They suck everything in and don’t stretch out. I have two pairs and have pretty much lived in them through my recovery. Both of these items are on sale on eddiebauer.com! And for all you fitness buffs, get a sneak peek at their Motion collection for next spring: eddiebauerpr.com/motionguide
