I remember the first time I walked into Lululemon…”$70+ for workout pants…WTF?!“Same thing when I first walked into Dick’s Sporting Goods. Besides the fact that both store names are completely confusing at best, I was appalled at the prices. I vowed to “never be that person” that splurges on something that’s just going to get sweaty and gross during my workout.
Then I bought my first pair of workout pants from Lulu…followed by my first cute workout ensemble from Dick’s. And well…check out the video below to see how ridiculous I get about this stuff…
By the way, it’s not just the fact that I like the way that these clothes look. You can seriously get superpowers during your workout when you love how you look. This isn’t just in my head: a Northwestern University study found that by simply putting on exercise gear, you are more likely to get into the right frame of mind to start exercising, and it will make your workout more effective too.
This was part of a giveaway that I did in July 2014, so ignore that part. But the message still stands – if you’ve got a little disposable income, get yourself some new threads and maybe see a little bit of magic happen at the gym 😉
