Fashion Friday: Athletic Wear

I have discovered a secret to workout motivation. At least it was a secret to me. If I dress in something nicer than an old t-shirt and a ratty pair of crop pants, I enjoy my workout more, get more done in my day and feel better about myself while glistening to the oldies. So when I received an invitation to a Brooks Fashion Show in Pensacola, I packed up my camera and ran on over. It was a very fun night, with about 50+ people attending.

THE SHOW

Damarice, model Brooks Fashion Show, Pensacola, FL

Damarice is a model who works mostly in the Pensacola area.

Damarice is wearing some of the new technology from Brooks. The fabric is made of a “dry release material” and as Cherie put it, “you won’t be stinky, if you need to run errands after working out.” Greg Moore, an account manager with Brooks for southern Alabama and north Florida, said, “it is a dry-release fabric – anti-microbial which prevents against odor causing bacteria.”

It is also equipped with a safety feature that was a favorite last night. To help runners be safe at night and look fabulous during the day, Brooks has a fabric that glows when light hits it. The above photo was taken without my flash.

Dry-release also keeps you cool and regulates body temperature during exercise.

Most of the Brooks pieces come with lots of pockets for keys, phone, coins, etc.

Another great feature, is that the shorts won’t ride up while doing squats or weight lifting.

Workout wear with neon colors.

For those who prefer neon colors.

This top fits snugly where it needs to and flatters the body with an a-line flare at the bottom. Very comfortable fit.

Workout shorts with compression shorts to prevent chaffing.

Compression undershorts to prevent chaffing.

 

I found out too, that men prefer a two in one short with a compression tight underneath. It helps prevent chaffing. I wonder if they make them for women?

And where would we be without the right running shoe?

Beautiful feet.

There’s a color and style for every need. And the best news…Brooks Transcend- the latest and most cushioned shoe in Brooks’ line. Feels like you are running on clouds yet gives ample support.

Cherie handed the microphone to Greg a couple of times during the show. Then the audience wanted to hear more because he had the most darling accent. I never got the chance to ask where he is from. UK? Australia?

I know that I will not choose to stay in my exercise clothes all day every day, but on the days that I do… I’ll look stylish, smell good, remain dry and be motivated to do it all again tomorrow. Thank you, Brooks and Running Wild!

    The piece I love is Cherie’s t-shirt dress. I love wearing those. I wonder if it came from Running Wild? I’ll have to check out the store here in Fairhope.
