Sports gear has come on leaps and bounds over the years with all the new technology, fun prints and exciting designs. You will now find what you wear to get hot and sweaty in is just as important on the fashion chart as what you wear on a daily basis... I don't lie it's very true! With this in mind I was really excited to discover that my lovely friends at F&F are embarking on a fitness collaboration with an online exclusive Elle Sports collection.
F&F already have their own affordable fitness clothes but they've now decided to take it one step further and collaborate with Elle Sport. Have a look here at what is currently available.
What I'm wearing
Top - Elle Sport Textured Tshirt - £24.00
Joggers - Elle Sport Slim Joggers - £34.00
Bra - Elle Sports Support Bra - £24.00
Elle sports fitness clothes are usually quite fun and colourful but also very practical, I've previously used their basic black leggings for dance and pilates classes but not for my technical fitness wear for my triathlon training. I think if I could describe Elle Sports wear in two words I'd say comfortable and fun.
Usually for me and my training I tend to go for tight fitting items as I normally will be jumping about vigorously, however for yoga I don't really have anything loose fitting to make me feel relaxed.
I recently went to Bude in Cornwall for a week to catch some waves surfing and to chillout. After I'd had a rough day in the sea it was the perfect opportunity for some well needed stretching in a yoga session.
Even though the tshirt and joggers are baggy the sports bra is very supportive, which for me can be quite a tough problem as I'm a 32D and need some decent support to feel comfortable - regardless of type of exercise.
I think having bright fun clothes to train in makes you feel good which makes you want to train better. Maybe that's just me?
Overall I'd say the new range from Elle Sports on the F&F website are fun, fashionable and functionable. The joggers are by far the most comfortable I've ever worn in a while, making them ideal for yoga, tai chi and pilates.
To celebrate this amazing collaboration I have launched a fantastic competition. I am giving away 10 Elle Sport running armbands...you have these options for entering
