Fashion Diaries: Why Do We Workout?

Written on June 24, 2011 at 9:13 am , by

Everyone here at FITNESS seems to have their own workout regimen that helps them stay fit during the summer. Whether it’s taking classes at SoulCycle like our fitness editor Jenna does, trying a trampoline class like Karla our editorial assistant, or doing yoga in the park with the lovelies over at Lululemon, it’s important to do what makes you feel good—and of course, look good.

My personal favorite way to exercise is to hit the streets and go for a run. Since I ran my first half-marathon in April, I have been addicted to the sport and can’t wait to run the Philadelphia Half in November! But for the fashion team, hitting the gym hard (like Melissa does) or going for a jog (like Argy and I do) means more than just burning calories and getting our endorphins flowing. We exercise so that we can look good in all of the season’s latest fashions!

Here are some of our favorite summer workout pieces that we wear so that we can look amazing in the gym—then out for a night on the town.
