What to Wear to the Gym: SheFinds Gets in Shape for Fall

Everyone talks about getting in shape for the Summer, but today I had a revelation: if I keep myself fit right now, I won't have to work so hard to get that bikini body back come April. Plus, the beach isn't the only place a gal hopes to look good; there's also the bedroom, where you want to feel confident there all year 'round. And what about winter getaways to Caribbean countries? To inspire myself for my all-Fall-long, three-times-weekly workout plan, I went shopping for athletic gear that is both functional and cool (because as a particluarly image-conscious ex-boyfriend of mine once so wisely declared, "You gotta have style, baby–even at the gym."). So here are my recommendations for anyone who's ready to get/keep her herself in shape.

First you gotta stop the jiggle. This Nike Revolutionary sports bra ($49) may be more expensive than their original Determination model ($35), but its innovative new support system (there's a strap between the cups that increases motion control) keeps me comfortable even at a sprint. For anyone who runs or uses an eliptical machine, this is a must.

 

Save cash and trust these Champion activewear tanks from Target ($9.99). As long as you're not a marathoner or tri-athelete, you don't need any of that high-tech wickaway stuff they try to sell you. A lightweight loose-fitting top will do.

These Adidas Essentials capri workout pants ($49.99) will keep you cool throughout your workout, whether in the weight room or on the track. And they're cuter than athletic shorts–you won't look half bad on your way home, either

After I sprained my ankle for a third time back in high school, the kind folks at my local runners' store recommended a superb, little-known brand of sneaker that I've used ever since. Unlike some major companies, Brooks actually takes the particular build of female bodies and joints into account when designing their women's line. My current favorite for jogging is the Axiom 3 ($90), which are lightweight, flexible, and cushy; but for athletes with low arches or a tendency toward rolling ankles, the Adiction ($100) is the sturdy sneaker that finally kept me on my feet as a kid.
