It's officially Summer, aka- bathing suit season, so of course our team is constantly chatting about the newest fitness routines and favorite products for the gym. So, today we are bringing that conversation to you via our weekly Friday Finds column. Below are a few of our team's notable favorite products at the moment and comments from each of them on why...
MARY KATHRYN (1 & 9) : I love this speed cable jump rope. It is not only afforable, but also lightweight, fast and adjustable. This is a great rope for beginners up to jump rope competitors! (yes, that's a real thing!) :) Plus it comes in a bunch of different colors! Also, I'm really looking forward to the release of the new Nike Metcons this July!
BEKAH (2 & 13) : This armband is the BEST for running- the key pocket is genius, border is reflective and the material is sweat/water resistant. Also, this (13) is on the top of my wishlist. My husband and I love to bike on the weekends and I am crazy about this cycling top- so flattering and the pockets in the back for snacks and phones are essential.
LUCY (3) : My favorite athletic accessory/article of clothing are my Lululemon Speed Tights (a.k.a. yoga pants). I have several different styles but these are by far my favorite. They have a little bit more detail around the ankle, which makes them a little more unique than your plain black yoga pant. They are perfect for barre class, yoga, running, lounging, or running errands- I wear them for all of the above!
SARA (4) : I love my magic carpet yoga mat!
KRISTEN (7 & 11) : My Beats wireless headphones by Dre are my fave! So I know that is not super athletic, BUT they're amazing when you are on the move - I also wear them when I "athletically" letterpress. ;) Also, this water bottle (7) is AMAZING! It is BPA free and glass, and is offered in lots of different colors.
LAUREN (8) : Strava is an App I love to use when working out outside of the gym. It allows you to GPS track your running or bike riding, join in challenges, share photos of your activities and follow friends.
SYDNEY (10) : I'm all about a sassy sports bra , and I love this one from Forever21! ;)
KENDALL (11) : I love the Nike Air Max collection!
KATE (14) : I love wearing athletic wear because it's so comfortable and easy. My favorite pair of workout tights are from Forever21, they are affordable and are a great fit.
LIZ (15) : Ok, you know I don't work out much, but I'm taking my inspiration from Lucy. I love her open-back lululemon tops! If I had her back (and I worked out), I would wear those every day!
MARIELLE (16) : I absolutely love all workout gear from Athleta due to the great quality, fun colors, bold design, and accessible price of their clothing. I recently purchased these workout capris and I could not be happier! They are stylish and comfortable and transition nicely from the gym to weekend wear. They offer tall sizes which is such a benefit for an overly tall girl like me! The capris are actually capris and do not pop up over my knees thanks to the extra length!
