I’m sure you’ve seen the Fabletics commercials before. Kate Hudson makes exercise look as enticing as eating a nice dinner.
I’m not the only one who thinks the commercials are a hit either. My girlfriends, Erin and Caitlin Copley, highly recommend the site. Apparently, Kate Hudson’s glowing face is an accurate depiction of what this wonderful line entails. Caitlin says, “I love it because it is affordable and good quality clothing. I think the right workout outfit can give you an extra boost and I usually perform better when I feel comfortable in my workout gear. The stylists constantly add new colors and patterns that I don’t really see in retail stores. They email you each month to let you know you about new products/ deals.”
I think most of us have experienced the boost we get from wearing workout clothes that make it easier to transition into a post-workout salad with a friend. A cheerful outfit can positively affect your overall passion and purpose to get the workout done!
Since I wear fitted bottoms, I tend to wear looser tops. So I am starting off by showcasing a hip, fashionable top. I like feeling a breeze during my workouts. This Fabletics top is trendy with the draped, crossover back. This will cool you off and give your look some sass.

For those that appreciate the tighter-fitting tops, I love the “Wahoo” top. It takes a simple crop tee and adds mesh in the back, creating yet another air circulation top while using the softer fabric. You will love this top so much you may find you want to get more than one.

Everyone is different when it comes to wearing bottoms during workouts, but I think most of us prefer bottoms that have maximum compression to prevent jiggling while we are working out to tone our bodies. Personally, I love the bright looks I’ve been seeing on joggers on the San Diego beaches. This particular pant is a very tight fit and has all kinds of fun colors and bold patterns to choose from.

I love capris for workouts as well. And I especially like the ones that have the zippered back pocket. This is great when going for a run because it's just the right amount of space to fit cash and a key. The material is soft enough to wear for an extended period of time, making it very transitional.

It's nice to know that Fabletics.com is a one-stop shop for athletic clothes that won't cost you as much as four months of a gym membership. The site does a wonderful job getting you pumped up about athletic clothes. The website offers a quick fitness style test that gauges your style and your desires for your specific workout routines, and also notes your size, which in turn makes it easier to shop by recommending options within your guidelines. Additionally, first-time shoppers get a huge discount. Do I need to say more?
