Getting back into shape is a major part of my life right now. I go to the gym three-to-five times a week, I’ve developed better eating habits and I feel great. The best part? I’ve lost a bunch of weight over the past year—and I’m on my way to losing more. The second best part? Getting new clothes in smaller sizes. I started by rebooting my workout wardrobe.
Inspired to move beyond the traditional T-shirt and shorts combo, I started with fleece. I’m already a big fan of this ridiculously warm yet lightweight material. I found this awesome performance fleece hoodie that’s so soft and comfortable. I even wear it when I’m just sprawled out on the couch for a night of TV.
I picked out an equally soft and comfy pair of performance fleece pants to go with the hoodie. As with any great workout pants, the elastic waistband gives them a nice relaxed fit. My favorite part about my new favorite fleece activewear? It’s made by SB Tech, a company that uses a special kind of fabric called Cool Play that keeps me warm in the winter and cool and dry in the summer. How cool is that?
While I love my fleece, I also wanted to switch it up a bit and throw some other styles into the mix. I started with a wind hoodie that I picked out because it reminded me of the windbreakers I wore as a kid. What I got was so much more. In addition to being wind-resistant, it’s also water-resistant. This makes it a double blessing on those days when I walk out of the gym only to be greeted by a torrential downpour. If it looks like even the slightest chance of rain in the morning, I’ll throw it on as I’m heading out to the office as well.
Of course, if I’m going out for a run, there’s a good chance that I’ve also got a pair of windwear pants on to go with my wind hoodie. All of this great SB Tech windwear is mesh lined, so—as with the fleece—it keeps me keeps me warm in the winter and cool and dry in the summer.
Maybe my next project will be to update all of my T-shirts and shorts. For now, I’ve got to try and squeeze in 30 minutes of cardio before going to work. Until next time, stay active and stay stylish.
