My Week in Workout Clothes #dishthefit

I've become a bit obsessive about workout clothes. I mean, the colors. And I'm in exercise clothes all week long, so it's kind of hard not to be obsessed with them. They are, after all, my professional wardrobe since I work at a gym. So I thought it would be fun to take a look at my week in workout clothes. To give you a glimpse of what I like to wear because fitness fashion is, well...due to the bright colors...it's just so much fun.

Seriously, there's no such thing as a capsule wardrobe when it comes to fitness fashion. The more I have in my drawer, the merrier I am. Thankfully, good fitness clothing isn't always expensive. And it can last a really long time if you take care of it. For example, I rarely dry my fitness gear. And I use a special detergent.

But, I digress.
You want to see the outfits.
So let's do this.

First up, a running outfit:

I run three times a week (Monday, Thursday and Saturday), and I'm usually in a skirt. I hate running in shorts, and at this time of year, tights of any kind get too hot. I only wear them if I'm on a treadmill at the gym. And I always have my Garmin and my FlipBelt on me, too.

And while I like to rotate my running shoes, these days, I'm putting one foot in front of the other in my Mizuno Wave Enigma 5 shoes.

On Tuesday, I teach Spinning:

Fact: I literally did a Google search for pink cycling shoes and the rest is history. I don't wear padded shorts, but I do like "bike" shorts. This entire outfit is from Old Navy, and I'm obsessed with it's comfort level. With the built-in bra and flowing tank, it's a clutch choice for staying cool.

Have you caught on that I'm never without a Momentum Wrap Bracelet when I work out?

On to Wednesdays. Barre Fit:

I don't sweat ridiculously in my Barre class, so I tend to just keep it comfortable. I like this cropped top from Puma. It's super cute layered over a tank for before, after and sometimes during class.

I don't run in my Vibrams anymore, but I do love them for Barre. I'm just not one to go barefoot in the studio. I like a little something on my feet, and these let me stay completely connected to the ground with minimal but effective support.

I sometimes wear my Nike Studio Wraps in Barre, too, but I almost always wear them on Fridays when I teach PiYo Live.

This is another class that makes me sweat bullets, so I like to keep the clothing to a flowing minimum.

I'm currently loving sports bras with awesome backs, and will pair them with open-back tanks and/or loose fitting tanks so you can see the details in the bra. One thing that stinks about PiYo Live: I don't have time to completely change between class and my Friday client, so I usually switch out my tank for a "trainer" shirt when I leave the studio.

Seriously, though. All of this totally beats the professional, iron-shirt and heels type of gear I used to sport when I was working in advertising. Not only is it all much more comfortable, it's way more fun to shop for.

The obsession, otherwise known as the addiction to cute workout clothing, is completely real. Take me to rehab. No, wait. Please don't.

At least there are plenty of great spots for finding cheap fitness clothes: Old Navy, Target, TJ Maxx (dangerous!) and Kohl's are just a few of my favorites. But if I'm willing to spend a little more, I think the first place I like to look is at Athleta. Man, that stuff is adorbs.

Question: What is your favorite piece of fitness clothing? Is there a particular style you're digging right now?
