It doesn’t matter what your excuse is for skipping the gym — a stressful workday, sleep deprivation, the new season of OITNB. We’ve heard (and used) them all before. The couch can be very convincing, though, as it calls — no yells — our name. But, there is one thing that never fails to get us up and out that door. Workout clothes. Cute workout clothes.
Yes, sweating out spin class in a confidence-boosting sports bra and patterned pair of leggings is straight-up pedal-inducing. When function meets fashion, you feel like Yonce on that treadmill instead of yawny on that pillow. So, queue up OITNB on your phone, grab a few fitness pick-me-ups ahead, and get ready to werk it.
There's nothing quite like sweating it out. Nothing.
