Training like a pro | Nike
The road to fitness is not just about investing in good equipment and fancy food items. A very important aspect, that most people fail to take seriously, is the workout wear. Buying the right pair of shoes and apparel is a must. The market is filled with a variety of options, right from fancy running shoes, to training specific ones and even wraps (perfect for exercises that are traditionally performed bare feet). And when it comes to the perfect blend of fitness and a splash of colors, no one does it better than Nike.
Since childhood, I have been a workout wear hoarder and a trip to the Nike store always topped my agenda while shopping. Why? Well, my reasons as a kid was because I loved the way they play with bright colors (I love my workout gear in happy hues). Then as a teen, I absolutely adored their range of shoes, both for comfort and style (plus, my favorites - Roger Federer and Maria Sharapova wore Nike on the court, so I would always eye their limited edition gear). And as years passed by, I suddenly noticed that an entire shelf in my wardrobe is filled with Nike workout gear (apparel and accessories).
One glance at the Nike women range of apparel, accessories, shoes and you will notice that although the brand has successfully stuck to their signature elements, they have never shied away from experimenting. Be it with patterns, colors or constantly churning out different shoe technologies for specific needs, the brand has always dared to be different. A dash of neon green on teal or a stroke of steel grey on purple, every collection and the products part of it are sure to keep you happy.
But over and above every aspect, be it style, color among others, what I really love about the brand is their mission to offer every individual the technology that athletes swear by. From Dri-FIT fabrics to slim fit cotton tees, or Training shoes with upper mesh that allow room for air, thus improving breath-ability; each product focuses on not just improving your training and keeping injury at bay, but keeping you comfortable as well.
I chose hues of purple and teal for one of my recent trip to the joggers park. Keeping the cold weather in mind, and the fact that I always feel cold, no matter what, I paired this super comfortable hyperwarm mezzo training tights (made in an ultra-soft Dri-FIT jersey fabric, which helps keep sweat away and also keeps you warm) with a slim fit swoosh tee and of course my favourite - a full zip hoodie in cotton blend, to maintain the body temperature and keep it warm post a workout (which is essential). Keeping my feet comfy while I twist, twirl and jump is the Nike Studio Trainer. The fitsole sockliner with cushioned footbed makes this extremely lightweight pair of shoes a complete winner. While dancing (and jumping in between), I can land on the ball of my foot with ease, and the front mesh ensures that there is no trace of sweat inside (which is a boon in the otherwise humid climate that we deal with).
But that's not all, we have got another part of this post reserved for you.
Apart from talks on workout gear and our favorite items from Nike, we will be changing a few things here and there in the same outfit, to show off a different look.
Till then... Keep smiling, switch on your training mode and stay fit!
