Getting my hands on new active wear for the gym really does give me a kick of motivation, as silly as that may sound. I mean, you don’t need to wear new gym clothing to work harder in the gym, but there’s just something about those sessions when I rock up at Pure Gym wearing new gym wear, where I just feel more kick-ass.
Maybe its a mental thing… who knows. But for me, it definitely works, it’s like I get a bit bored of my usual work out items and then suddenly slip on a new set, and I’m full of fresh new motivation!
This is how I’m currently feeling dressed head to toe in my new sports bra, leggings and trainers from USA Pro…
First thing to note is that I’m actually wearing a print! For those who watch my insta stories at the gym, you’ll notice I’m pretty much always dressed in black, grey or navy, and it always seems to be ‘plain’.
I’m just a bit of a fuss-free girl when it comes to patterns and designs for clothing, but there was something about this subtle cloud/marble/wash effect print in my fave shades of grey, black and white that I was attracted to.
I actually feel much more noticeable wearing printed leggings, and strangely, really comfortable with it too. I’ve been teaming these lightweight design leggings with this scooped neck, dual strapped sports bra in black from USA Pro, keeping a sweater handy for when I get a bit chilly (especially when just starting my workout!)
The leggings cost £44.99, although are currently on offer at the moment. They feel super comfy with the elasticated waistband and flatlock seams, allowing complete flexibility whenever I wear them. I love how they have a little zipped pocket to the rear too, always handy for ensuring any small belongings remain safe – like locker keys or loose change!
The sports bra retails at £13, and has a stylish mesh back to it which looks fashionable and sporty. With its lace-up detail and soft material, I feel this bra gives a comfortable and supportive fit thanks to the dual shoulder straps and padded cups, whilst the elasticated band to the bottom provides that extra support.
The two paired together really work and look amazing in my opinion!
I’ve seen the girls from Little Mix wearing the core range from USA Pro, and I have to admit, when I saw how smoking hot they looked in the leggings, sports bras, trainers, sweaters and vest etc, I was desperate to try them myself! The girls look fab wearing the different colours and styles, and it totally encouraged me to try a set too (such a sucker when I have celebrity girl crushes… Perrie Edwards!).
USA Pro is reasonably priced for active wear, and often run offers and promotions where you can get 2 items for a lower price, for example. Feel free to check them out here!
