When it comes to physical fitness, there are a couple things that help fuel my motivation. For starters, it’s always more fun with friends. I think some of us can agree that it is definitely more motivating working out with someone else. During the week, I alternate between Pure Barre and Camp Gladiator. A couple of my teacher friends and I signed up together, so we are often texting each other to see what class we are attending. It keeps me motivated to not back out (we’ve all been there) and it’s always fun to see a familiar face.
Second, I am always motivated by good looking gear. I love a great pair of leggings. You know, the kind you can wear outside of the gym and still look “effortlessly chic”. I think we can all admit that active wear is not just limited to physical activities so why not have a pair that you love? These Moto Leggings from Carbon 38 are simply amazing. Not only are they very flattering, but they are practical for many activities. I also love longer, loose fitting tops to wear during Barre. I love the fit of this one and actually plan to wear it as a layering top later this Fall.
Once a month, my friends and I set a brunch date and we usually plan it right after a morning Barre class. Of course we don’t completely change before brunch, but we do throw on a few accessories (and some perfume!) before heading off to brunch. Now that it’s getting cooler, I like to keep a light weight utility jacket or scarf with me in my tote bag. It’s easy to throw on and definitely takes your look from gym to table.
Thanks for stopping by! xx
