not so patiently counting down the days until HBO’s Girls makes its way back into our lives on Sunday night (if you aren’t caught up on season 1, we beg you to bang it out before Sunday night. Ready, set, go!), and we can’t wait to snuggle up on the couch and see where our friends Hannah, Marni, Jessa, and Shoshanna will end up. But in true FITNESS form, we can’t help but think about what each girl’s workout routine is. How exactly does Hannah get her sweat on? We’ve put together what we think they’re doing to stay fit, and even have them dressed and ready to go.
Hannah, played by the ever-popular Lena Dunham, might be our favorite character. She’s raw, she’s real, and she’s got spunk. So what’s her workout deal? We like to think that Richard Simmons is her idol. So instead of hitting the gym or whatever trendy workouts all the Manhattanites are obsessing over, Hannah is at home in her Brooklyn apartment, watching an old Richard Simmons VHS (yes, we mean watching, not actually doing). Oh yeah, and she’s probably munching on Entenmann’s powdered donuts, in a not-so-sexy getup (i.e. this top and these track shorts from American Apparel with some old school Reebok kicks).
As for pal Jessa, well she’s off doing something a bit more, shall we say, interesting? She’s definitely not the type to be spotted on an elliptical at Equinox, and her bohemian-chic, free spirit attitude leads us to believe that she’s into yoga. But of course, not just regular vinyasa yoga, more along the lines of naked yoga. Since naked yoga is done, er, naked, Jessa would probably show up in a hot outfit (like this awesome Lucas Hugh bra and legging combo), and then strip down to her birthday suit. All the more power to her!
Marni, the uber uptight sophisticate, is definitely our most hardcore girl. She’s competitive by nature and uses her workouts to relieve stress and stay in tip-top shape, so Flywheel is totally her workout of choice. Since she’s doesn’t use her gym time to scope out future dates (come on, we’ve all done it!), she’s not into looking overly cute while she’s getting sweaty on the bike. She’s a function over style kinda girl when it comes to workout clothes so pieces like these CWX compression tights and this Pearl Izumi tank, are staples for her. Oh and she never forgets her cycling shoes…having to rent a pair is just icky!
Now as far as trendy workouts go, we know that Shosh, is all over them. She’s hit up SoulCycle and dabbled in Pilates, but what she really excels at is the Barre Method. She’s typically the girl in class who asks a million questions about each exercise, and shows up a half-hour early to practice. She’s also decked out head-to-toe in the latest Lululemon garb. Since she’s stuck in a world of bubblegum pink, puppies, and rainbows, we imagine that she’d probably show up to class wearing this tank, these capris, a matching jacket, and of course a headband to keep her hair in place. Oh, and she never re-wears a workout outfit, which mean’s daddy’s credit card bill has lots of Lulu charges to it!
Which Girls character do you most identify with?
