Favorite Work-Out Pieces + Fitness Essentials


Since my transition from a high schooler to a college student, I have learned that remaining active depends on my own motivation. Prior to college, I was consistently active through different high school sports each season. However, since I am no longer playing on a team, I have had to find new ways to consistently stay healthy & work out my body. Over the past few years, I have successfully discovered what workouts and activities work best for me. Some of my favorite workouts here on campus are: long walks on the trail behind campus, a treadmill session at the Jo, or an OrangeTheory workout class in Shrewsbury! All of these options make me feel the best and perform my best, and I recommend each one to all of you. 

For those of you who can relate, nothing feels better than wearing a good workout set/ good-quality pieces. Personally, I can seek motivation from my gym clothes alone… give me a good set and I’m ready to go. Whoever said workout cutes can’t be cute and practical?

Free People Movement

I cannot stress enough how much I love FP Movement. The colors, cuts, and styles are unique yet practical to exercise in. I recommend anything from their sports bras, to their cropped tanks, to their leggings. The material is stretchy which makes for great sizing, however you will never catch your leggings slipping during your workout. I included one of my favorite workout sets and style of tank top down below.


Alo Yoga

Hands down, Alo for sure has the most fun workout sets and styles. I am always so impressed with their new collections every couple of months. Here, I am pictured wearing a teal set from their ALOSOFT collection. It is sooooo comfy and soft, yet still protects against sweat and does not loosen around the waist!



My right hand, go-to…. my Lululemon is for sure the most simple yet significant collection in my closet. I almost always wear their neutral shades and purchase their classic cuts. The black jacket picture above is my favorite Lulu piece. It is fitted, cropped, and perfect to throw over anything. I bought it a while back, but I will link something similar!
