"Ali's 31 Days of Fresh!"
I must admit, when I hit the gym, the last thing I'm worried about is how I look. I want to get in there, get my heart rate up, get sweaty, and feel the burn. But I will say I would love to step up my "active wear" game a bit more. So here are some ideas for you (my subbies/readers) and for me to add on my active wear wish list.
ACTIVE WEAR & GYM ESSENTIALS
The items listed below will help you not only look the part, but will set you up to have the best workout possible!
GET THE LOOK
Here is a simple look that you can recreate when you're headed to the gym to run the treadmill, lift some weights, or shake your bum - bum in Zumba. Take a page out of the "body party" singer, Ciara's workout playbook.

WORKOUT FOR ME
Here's a little sneak peak into my active wear and things I do to get active!!!! When I'm at home working out I tend to workout in a sports bra, some running pants and tennis shoes (pic 1 on the left). When I go to the gym I usually throw my hair in a pony, add a hat, or throw it up in a messy bun and add a headband. I pair my running pants with a tank or tee shirt, tie my hoodie around my waist, lace up my Nike's, pull up my favorite playlist, and rock out while I'm doing my thing (which consists of either running around the track, cardio, or riding the stationary bike - pic 2 in the middle)! The right column shows things you can do to get your heart rate pumping. Do a workout challenge like "The 100 Workout," ride the bike at the gym, run, take a class offered at the gym (I do Zumba twice a week), or do a workout DVD at home (like "Black Girls Workout Too!").
There are many things you can do to get active, and plenty of pieces you can get to look stylish while working out. So show us your hottest "active wear" on Instagram using the hashtag #Alis31daysoffresh. I appreciate your participation and look forward to your posts. Have a great day luvs!!!
