I love fit gear…in fact I love fitness gear a little bit toooo much. Pavement Runner has sponsored a new link up called What’s in your fitness closet and I’m kinda nosey so I’ve enjoyed checking out everyone’s closet. Now I’m giving you a peak inside my closet.
Back in December I went through and ho-ed out my fitness gear. I had shirts from years ago just collecting dust in my closet that needed to go. I also got rid of ALL my cotton race t-shirts. Honestly I never wore them and there are people out there who could use them much more than me. So to good will they went.
Pulling out things for this little adventure I discovered two things. There is red nail polish spilled on my hardwood floors (UGH!) and I really like shorts!
This is just a small sample of the shorts I am currently collecting in my fitness closet. Some of my favorites the Nike Tempo Run shorts, I think I own 17 pairs of them! And some Under Armour shorts I picked up in the fall.
These are both new to my closet this season and replaced my Under Armour Cold Gear Tops that were all worn out. The Nike Pro Hyperwarm Hybrids are amazing! SO amazing in fact I bought two of them. They have thumb holes and the collar can be rolled down, perfect for when you get warm on a cold run. I adore these. I’m seriously considering buying another.
A snip it of race shirts. All of these are tech shirts. I still have ONE awesome cotton long-sleeved shirt from the Mountain Goat the last year they had them before they switched to the tech short. A little Warrior Dash, a few half marathons and of course the boilermaker round out my favorites.
This winter I started rocking capri’s instead of running shorts. It was life altering! I’m quickly developing a stash of them. I now have a few pairs from Ellie, Nux and Old Navy. These are my two favorites…a grey from Nux and a bright purple from Old Navy.
I love a good fitting & functioning workout top. Not t-shirts per say but just functioning shirts, that keep me dry and are comfy. These are my current loves. A yoga shirt from Kohl’s (blue /white), Under Armour teal tank, Black shirt from Marshall’s, Pink Reebok Cross Fit top, a hot pink Nike Tech T-shirt and my most favorite hot day running shirt the blue-ish loose and Under Armour RUN top. I seriously think about crying when none of these are clean.
Another fairly new installment to my fitness closet has been headbands. I’ve had fairly short hair until recently so I had no need for them. Once I discovered how headbands keep sweat out of your eyes, I’ve been hooked on them. Here are some of my favorite ones. Sweaty Bands, Sparkly Soul, BAMR Bands and a Reebok made the cut. All stay in place and make me feel like a million bucks working out.
Sneakers are my favorite part of my wardrobe even though there isn’t really here much Earth shattering. I picked the 5 pairs of shoes I use the most.
I own 5 pairs of Reebok Real Flex shoes! I’m showing you three of them below. My black Nike’s are a trail running shoe, which I use a lot outside on the natural trail near our house. They are black so I don’t mind when they get dirty and look a hot mess as you can tell 😉
My newest sneakers are bluish color Asics Gel Frantic 7’s. They are my new distance running sneakers. The three pairs of Reebok each serve a different purpose. The pink get used for outside stuff (HIIT classes, walks). And both grey pairs are gym/treadmill only shoes. I have about 4 other pairs of sneakers that I use for everyday and other outside get muddy activities but they aren’t very pretty.
Some people have very crazy things in their fitness closet, mine is pretty calm. I don’t feel like sharing my bras since they aren’t really much to look at. And seriously when laid out look like they are hats not bras.
My socks are plain white from C9 Champion for Target. I have one pair of pro-compression socks that are currently in the wash.
I have some fun ear buds but I’m not sure those are really in my fitness closet? I have Bathing suits 2-Speedo 1-Nike and a few colorful caps. Yes I caved and bought caps.
I honestly didn’t realize I was such a NIKE girl until I saw all my gear laid out. I always feel more close to Under Armour. I don’t own any LuLu, or Adidas. And to be honest I thought I had wayyyyy more Reebok stuff. Granted some of my summer gear is still packed away so maybe I do? Darn you Upstate New York Winters.
I want to hear from you!
