This weekend I took a spin class at SoulCylcle studios in Tribeca. I’m was excited but a little nervous. Why? I ‘ve been trying to figure that out . Probably because I’ve been kind of lazy the past two weeks . Winter brings out the hibernator in me. And spinning requires a no bullshit approach . I’m still using the Jillian Michaels Total Body Fit Kit just not as frequently as necessary . So, it’s time to go hard core. It’s going to hurt and I’m going to like it! (damn it ). That being said I needed gear up to begin training . This got me thinking. Why don’t I have workout wear I actually like that makes me feel well, sexy and strong? Time really does a number on fitness attire that’s for sure.
I decided it was time check out new workout wear to keep me inspired . If I’m going to do this detox and exercise routine , why not look good doing it ? I started with giving up bread , it’s been 3 days now.

Rosey Red Maori by Yellowman for Athleta exclusively
Spinning in shorts is the only way to go in a hot sweaty room. With a pair that is breathable as cotton with enough give. Something like these from Athleta are able to keep the rider comfortable but not overheated.
