I was cleared two weeks ago at my six-week post partum checkup to start working out. I was excited and nervous to start back up. The thing that got me motivated, new workout gear! Check out some of my favorite items.
The new BG6903 Collection from Baby-G (pictured above) is a runner’s delight! They come in three color combinations – my favorite is the grey with yellow face – and feature a 60 lap memory and 1/100th second, 100 hour stop watch, as well as being shock and 200 meter water resistant. For casual joggers (like myself) to veteran sprinters, this watch is stylish, extremely functional and at a price point of $99, you better run to the store to pick it up. Sold in select Nordstrom, Bloomingdales and Macy’s stores.
My favorite workout tank during pregnancy as well as post pregnancy is the Run Times Tank by Lulu Lemon. Not only for running, this tank is perfect for barre class, pilates, yoga or whatever your workout of choice. The Light Luxtreme™ fabric bra is sweat-wicking and breathable with four-way stretch. Look cute without barring it all, this tank shows some skin, but in all the right places (and covers up all the right places). I’m obsessed with the color combo above. Retailing for $64 this tank is the perfect addition to your workout gear wardrobe.
The Zella Halo Live in Eclipse Legging is the must-have workout pant this spring. The four-way stretch fabric offers maximum stretch for a wide range of motion, while the moisture-wicking fabric dries quickly to keep you cool and comfortable. My favorite feature is the hidden waistband pocket to stash your money or keys. The color and design are stylish so you don’t have to wear them just for working out, I wear them to run errands too! Pick up a pair at Nordstrom for $64.
Nike Sport Hair Ties are a workout necessity. These hair ties are made of stretch fabric that keeps hair out of eyes so you can focus on your workout and not your hair. Includes three different color options to match any of your workout outfits. The best part, they don’t leave that dreaded ponytail “ridge” in your hair, so you can take it down and look fab after your workout. At a price point of $10 it’s worth the investment!
The Namaste Tote by Fitmark is the perfect multi-purpose bag for every yoga goddess. With compartments to keep your water cool, your laundry separate, your phone protected and your yoga mat in place, this tote will give you peace of mind.
