Fashion vs Fitness

So you’ve finally made the commitment.  More exercise is a must.  And, to reward yourself for making such a positive life change?  A new outfit, of course.  Lucky for you, fitness wear has taken a turn for the stylish.

To gain insight on this active new trend, we caught up with Racquel Tristan, LA Retail Specialist at CorePower Yoga, one of today’s fastest growing (and rather unique) yoga studios.  Offering everything from a Wellness Cleanse to their cult-followed Heated Power Yoga (first week is FREE!) and all the fashionably-fit apparel to make exercise fun, they certainly make it easy to live an extraordinary life

Racquel was kind enough to impart some of her yoga-wear knowledge our way and direct us toward  the pieces to go out and buy, well…immediately.

“Choosing your favorite yoga pants is a little like finding the perfect pair of denim, except that when you find that perfect lifestyle brand, you not only look good, you feel good. We focus on carrying brands made from cotton and other sustainable materials that you love to wear both on and off the (yoga) mat.” 
Racquel’s SS12 Must-Haves:
This season, basics are key.  The Lululemon Wunder Under Crop Pant continues its sell-out factor, but with a 5 year fabric warranty, hidden-pocket, moisture-wicking luon wonder fabric, who wouldn’t be rushing out to buy these?  Their Flow Y Bra IV and Boogie Short are just as hot this season as well as the Beyond Yoga Gathered Long Legging; a simple and perfect transitional piece from workout to daytime chic.   Tonic and ALO are go-to brands for eco-friendly, lifestyle wear.

M-t-M Current Loves:

For stepping out of the yoga studio and on to the track…or the court, we are ever wowed by all factors of the Adidas by Stella McCartney line.  Swooooon.  Which collection is your fav?

Take your yoga studio style to the next level with leggings from Pingping&Rabbit.  I’m especially feeling the Power Girl Leggings in power pink. Score a 30% discount on these and other show-stoppers (through TODAY!) by entering the coupon code “SUMMER” at checkout.  You’re welcome.

Have you heard about Gwyneth’s new Abcentric partnership with celeb personal trainer, Tracy Anderson?  Identify your one of 4 body types (focusing on abs, bum, hips or all of the above) to get 25% off and be the first to own these wear-worthy pants.  I know I will.

In case the adrenaline has not kicked in yet, I’ll leave you with my final dose of fashion vs. fitness.  As if you ever had to decide between the two anyway…

A special THANK YOU to Racquel with CorePower Yoga for the inspiration!
