Do you hear that? It’s the sound of springtime—chirping birds, blossoming flowers, longer days, and newfound motivation. It’s the season to set new goals, or renew resolve that’s been hibernating for winter. What better time than right now to push yourself farther than you thought possible? (Hint: There is none.)
The right gear goes a long way towards making your aspirations reality. First of all, everything is more fun in cute, comfy clothes. Sportswear that moves with your body, wicks moisture, and supports you will help you run faster, stretch farther, swim better…and push yourself more than you thought possible.
Work Out in Mother Nature
If you’re stuck in a boring gym rut, head outside and go for a run or hike in the great outdoors. If you have no routine to speak of, just find a park, trail, or your own backyard and get moving. Jumping rope burns more than 200 calories in just 20 minutes. Jumping jacks, walking lunges, and short sprints are your friends. Swing sets are good, too. Bonus: sunshine, fresh air, and a major mood boost.
What to wear: Lands’ End Women’s Activewear Pleated Tank Top: This top looks great enough to grab coffee or walk around town, and is serious enough for spin class or circuit training. The super light fabric wicks moisture to keep you cool and dry; and the built-in bra provides support.
Live A (More) Active Life
We understand the mile-long to-do lists and days that feel like marathons. Sometimes, there’s just no room on your schedule for a proper workout. This is where incorporating movement into your routine is key. Walk to work—or get off the subway/bus/train a stop earlier and stroll from there. Take a lunchtime break to stretch. Walk your dog with gusto. Run your errands on your feet—it’s called running errands for a reason. PS: There’s no shame in rocking yoga pants or leggings, especially when they’re really cute.
What to wear: Lands’ End Women’s Activewear Control Crop Legging: These are no standard leggings. Upgraded fabric compresses with enhanced recovery, so the pants stay supportive and perfectly snug. Four-way stretch gives just right amount with every step, bend, and pose. Mesh panels in the waistband and hips smooth your shape but don’t restrict—you’ll look fierce, and move the same way. Happy spring!
