If A Celebrity Sweats In The Gym, Does Anyone See It? (And Other Celeb Workout Musings)
June 15, 2011
The floppy hat and the Birkin bag: go-to gym necessities, clearly…
The whole celebrity gym-going thing has always kind of amused me. For one, don’t celebrities already have their own in-home fitness centers (or at the very least, ellipticals)? If so, why bother making the oh-so-public trek to the nearest Equinox just to get photographed looking sweat-tastic? The answer is twofold: for one, the gyms and hiking trails A-listers frequent might as well be on the red carpet—they’re swarming with nearby paparazzi, onlookers, and fellow stars. Secondly, the “celebrity gym run” is so much of a publicity stunt in itself, it’s clear that their stylists outfit their workout ensembles, so as to make us mortals feel even more reluctant about gym going than we already are.
And while I do not recommend sporting a knit cap or Hermès Birkin bag to your nearest Equinox, I do recommend choosing a pair of fun, colorful gym shoes that make you feel like a celebrity in your own right. Check out my favorite under-$100 stylish gym shoes below:
