Fashionable motivation to stay healthy and active in 2010

Fashionable motivation to stay healthy and active in 2010

Keri, Style on a Whim, January 6, 2010

Every year, thousands of men and women make a New Year’s resolution to eat healthier, exercise more and lose weight. And every year, thousands of those same people don’t keep their resolutions. Whether it’s because they don’t have the time or the motivation, there’s a reason (or an excuse!) behind it.

I’m a runner, and I’m not one of those “nothing gets in my way of running every single morning” kind of runners—it’s sometimes very hard for me to drag myself out of bed for my morning run, but I can honestly say I always have more energy, and I feel way better about myself after a workout. That’s a feeling that everyone should know and love.

That said, I found a good excuse for any stylish woman to find the motivation, and it’s not pages of health statistics or some fancy exercise gadget—it’s fashion! Yes, people…fashion.

Thanks to the folks at TerraFrog, you can look good in your yoga class or out on the track, because they make funky, fashionable and functional running tanks. The Precision Running Tank was professionally designed for high impact activities like running and kickboxing and has a built in shelf bra for maximum support. The tanks come in solid colors with contrasting prints like plaids and polka dots for a surprising twist on the basic, boring workout wear.

TerraFrog also offers warm-up and running jackets with extra long sleeves to keep your hands warm during your chilly morning runs, and they’re made of moisture-wicking fabric to keep you dry, too. If you want a full workout outfit, you can snag a pair of their running shorts or yoga capris.

The prices on their website are in Canadian dollars, but converted to U.S. dollars, the Frog Tank is $56.71 and the jackets are $69.20. It’s money well spent if it keeps you motivated to stay healthy and active!

And if that’s not enough incentive to buy, TerraFrog is committed to finding environmentally friendly fabrics and manufacturing processes to help the planet. Now go shopping and get to working out!
