The turning moment was a few years ago, getting dragged to a spinning class by a friend whilst trying to distract myself from a rocky break up. I ended up absolutely loving it and plunged myself into exercise from then on. I loved the feeling of accomplishment, leaving classes head to toe in sweat and the 50 minutes where I was in a dark underground basement, no contact with anyone and it was just ‘me time’. Exercise then became my ‘me time’. Time without my phone, time to get some headspace and time to focus on myself. In the space of a few months I quickly went from someone that never exercised and barely owned trainers to being completely obsessed.
Now my exercise ranges from training sessions, pilates, at home workouts – the lot. I’ve also become quite the workout wear expert and have been known to wear the workout gear even on the days I have no intention of working out because it’s just so darn comfortable.
With quite a petite frame but a large bust area I always find it difficult to find sports bras that look pretty but are a good fit. The Infinity Bra is the perfect fit for me, it holds everything in place without being suffocating and has such a gorgeous cross-over detailed back I absolutely love it!
Lastly the Contemporary Long Sleeve Barre Crop Top, which makes me feel like a ballerina with the wrap around tie. Sweaty Betty always have their way of making each piece more unique than the next and this one is done so with the slits in the elbows and thumb holes. It’s light, easy to throw on and has a really feminine feel.
These pieces make working out that extra bit more exciting for me. Which one’s your favourite?
