New Year + New Workout Gear = New You

 

New Year, New Workout Gear, New You

One of the most common New Year’s resolutions? Getting in shape (just check out all the Pinterest boards dedicated to it). Well I, for one, am determined to make it happen this year – and luckily I have a secret weapon. From fun sneaks and a cute duffel to flattering, lightweight workout clothes, resolving to get fit seems easier (and more stylish) than ever.

The Shoes
With a bright, breathable mesh exterior, these running sneaks double as oh-so-cute commuter shoes.

The Clothes
A tank with a built-in supportive bra and sleek running tights (the perfect alternative to baggy shorts or sweatpants) are the gym clothes you won’t mind being spotted in.

The Bag
Not too bulky but big enough to fit sneaks, makeup, and a change of clothes, this athletic bag makes it easy to get all your gear to the gym before or after clocking out.

Our PUMA Boutique opens Friday, December 28, at 11AM ET.

Fitness Essentials: It’s All in the (Gym) Bag

I like to keep a workout bag packed and ready by the door at all times. I have a preposterously hard time motivating myself to go to the gym post-beach season (“But it’s dark out! But Tuesday is the new Thirsty Thursday!”). So having that bag packed and ready to go is absolutely key.

Its typical contents? Everything from the prettiest hair elastics known to man to punchy kicks that give even the least motivated days a pop of gotta-get-to-the-gym excitement.

Counterclockwise from left. 

The Bag: Gone are the days when I used to carry adidas soccer bags to the gym (ohh, high school). This checkered satchel is sporty-meets-cool – and can totally pass for a weekender, too.

The Music Maker: I’m mildly obsessed with my iPhone®. It’s fabulous for playing pump-up tunes, timing how long I can stay in plank (answer: not long), and making it possible to check work email while doing crunches.

The Kicks: Cushioned and just the right amount of bright, these sneaks are cute enough to tackle my morning commute, too.

The Watch: Okay, so do I really need a watch when I have a phone with me? Eh. But this one just makes everything look so Sporty Spice. In the best of ways.

The Water Bottle: A little shameless self-promotion? I can’t resist it – my Rue water bottle is just too cute.

The Hair Accessories: Treadmill without a hair tie? Major fail. So I won’t leave home without these knotted elastic hair ties. You can find them everywhere from Sephora to Etsy in a host of hues (and even glitter). As for tackling those leftover hair wispies? A drugstore hair clip is an absolute staple.

Want to round out your gym bag? Our PUMA Women’s Shoes & Accessories Boutique opens Monday, October 22, at 11AM ET.
