Not Your Mama’s Workout Wear
These are indeed good times for those of us opting to live an active lifestyle. Step into a gym or studio today and you’ll see attire far better suited to comfort in fitness than what the previous generation had to endure.
Those of us that exercised our way through the 80’s and 90’s know first hand the great strides that have been made relative to what we can wear to get our sweat on. Changes in fabric content, fit and style have given us workout clothing that allow us to go from the elliptical machine to the grocery store without looking like we washed up on shore in an ill-fitting clown costume.
Granted, that big t-shirt and the stretched out, faded capri pants you bought years ago won’t hinder you from getting your heart rate up, but the functionality can’t compare to today’s fitness clothing. Game changing fabrics like Supplex, will breathe during a workout and enhance your body type with slimming support and fit. It is an added bonus that you won’t just feel better exercising in these clothes, you’ll actually look chic and stylish while doing it. Working out in leotards and tights may not have stood the test of time, but your new pair of yoga pants will.
Our model, Lauren, looks effortlessly chic in head to toe I am Beyond (Formerly) Beyond Yoga. She's sporting the Original Jacket, Original Supplex Pant and the Beyond Yoga Racerback.
