Guide To Affordable Workout Clothes

Okay, I know that not all of us can be like Taylor Swift and come from the gym still looking super cute and well put together. However, you can still look trendy even when you’re working out. Here are some suggestions for some trendy yet still super comfy clothing for you to wear when heading to the gym, out for a run, to sports practice, or whatever it might be.

These colorblock capri’s from Kohl’s aren’t my favorite color but they offer several other different colors also. These are the perfect bottoms to wear to the gym. They aren’t sweatpants but they aren’t ridiculously short either, you can still get active without get too hot and sweaty, you know what I mean?

Here’s yet another pair of pants that are colorblocked except this one is from Target. I really love the color of these leggings and think they would be awesome to workout in.

This one isn’t exactly cheap but if you’re looking for a fashionable supportive crossback sports bra, this is for you.

If you’re looking for something bound to make an impression, check this sports bra from Forever 21 out. And these VERY short shorts also from Forever 21 out. They would both go really well together.

Love these Zumiez galaxy workout pants. They are comfortable, affordable, and also cute and trendy. These are must haves for workout wears.

This Roxy’s hoodie is perfect if you’re going outside to run during the colder weather and what not. It’s an equal balance of comfortable and cute, therefore it’s perfect for wearing when working out.

What better place to shop for workout clothes then Nike? A lot of their stuff may seem a bit on the expensive side, but a lot of it is also pretty affordable and always good quality. Be sure to check out this particular sports bra and other workout gear and running shoes.

Best Sports To Play With Others

Playing outside with your friends is a lot of what my childhood consisted of. It can be so much fun to still relive that fun every now and then and play those games with your friends! I’m a firm believer that you’re never too old for any of these outdoor games.

1. Kickball

Playing kickball outside was one of my favorite things in elementary school. I was by far the least athletic but it’s still fun to play a game with all your closest friends.

2. Four Square

This game isn’t physical so it was perfect for my awkward and non athletic self. It was such a fun game to play while on the playground in elementary school and middle school. What I love about four square is that you’re never too old to play it.

3. Jumping rope

This isn’t a sport but it’s definitely a workout. This was one of my favorite activities on the playground because it was one of the only ones I was actually good at. Jumping rope is also the most fun when you do it with other people. Double dutch is by far more challenging but it’s also just a fun way to get involved with your friends and do something productive.

4. Basketball

Playing pickup games of basketball with your friends is one of the best bonding activities in my book. I think this one is so great because you never grow out of it. There are guys that are still forty years old and they play pickup games with their buddies as a way to get some exercise and also some interaction with your best friends. It’s fun because there’s not a bunch of rules, you just play the game you love with little interruptions.

5. Ultimate Frisbee

Some people might automatically think this is lame but it’s also an active sport that involves lots of movement. I think it’s a fun use of your time. Plus you do have to be at least a little bit coordinated and athletic. But if you’re not, that’s not a big deal. The game was meant for all people and this is one that I personally think is one that everyone should play once or twice every once in awhile with their friends.

End Of March & Intro To April

Hey! I’ve loved writing about this month’s theme education all month. Hopefully you’ve learned some random facts or something like that. The month of April is going to be about sports: organized and unorganized. April marks the kick off to baseball season. While some of you may not care about it since this isn’t a sports blog, there’s still interesting stories and facts about baseball. I’m sorry if you find it boring, but hopefully you at least enjoy a good sports movie. I mean, Sandlot is a classic and I’ll definitely be talking about it a number of times during the month.

I plan on dedicating a lot of lists to different sports. For instance, I’m going to have a list of the ultimate sports movies then break some down by the main sports. I also plan on profiling athletes that everyone keeps talking about. For books this month, I’m going to talk about the best nonfiction sports books: both memoirs and biographies. There’s not a lot of great fiction sports books so I’m just going to do it that way.

This is just a little preview of what is to come. I plan on talking a little more about why I chose this theme and why you should care about it. That’s about it! Hope you guys stay with me this month.
