I often get asked questions about what type of activewear is most appropriate to wear for different boutique fitness classes or workouts. If you’re trying a new type of class, you might already be feeling nervous about the experience. You should at least feel confident knowing that you are wearing the right gear when you arrive. I love these urban-inspired looks from Sweaty Betty, featuring bold prints, colors, and quotes. Here are my suggestions for what to wear to a yoga, running, and dance workout.
Yoga — When it comes to yoga gear, I prefer fitted bottoms and a loose top. Yoga pants will stretch with you when you deepen your poses, but they’re fitted enough to stay put throughout your practice. I like these Chandrasana Yoga Leggings in Lilac Chalk. On top, I wear a loose tank like the Flow Yoga Vest, which reminds you to Go With The Flow. You may also want to layer a sweatshirt over your tank until your practice starts to heat up.
Running — Whether you’re taking an agility class to improve speed or going for a run outside, wearing less is more. Your body will quickly heat up when you’re doing intense cardio, making it easy to overheat if you’re wearing too many layers. As the weather cools below 45 degrees, I like to wear full-length tights like these Pace Run Tights in Hidden Treasure. They have the right amount of compression and personality. On top, I prefer a running jacket like the City Lights Ultra Run Jacket. You can choose to layer either a tank or a long-sleeve top under the zip-up.
Dance — Your dancewear should be as sassy as the beats and moves that make up your cardio dance workout. Like my yoga gear, I prefer a fitted tight that will stay put while I’m shaking and breaking a sweat. The Off Beat Dance Leggings in Bowery Print are a great option. Again, the top should have a looser fit that will allow your upper body to move and stay cool. This Don’t Walk Dance Vest in Rundown Purple features distressed fabric, dropped armholes, and a racerback fit.
