I have become a fully fledged fitness freak with running being the most loved part of my life and a new way to explore the world. With that I'm getting into the gear and making room in my wardrobe for a whole new section of sportswear. I never saw this coming and pleasantly surprised as active-wear is so much more than the spandex you first imagine. I'm beginning to learn what DryFit fabrics to invest in and what length leggings are appropriate for different activities. NIKE have just collaborated with Brazilian designer Pedro Lourenço on a training collection to combine performance and luxury. It's a modern interpretation of athletic apparel and I was lucky enough to go to the launch where we got to wear it for a specially devised workout with master trainer Lee Mullins. Each girl in the class had been given a different variation of pieces from the collection and mine comprised of skirted leggings which is a dream development to the basic - no feeling of being exposed wearing these! The mesh crew is super soft with rubberised felted trim as if it has been flocked which feels so comfy in the gloved cuff. The most cosmic part is the Nike Free 5.0 TR Fit 4 shoes made from 3M to be reflective and flash under lights when you run - which you can see here in my photos from the class. Find out more about the project over on the NIKE Store
To keep this page from turning into a Women's Health site, I have set up a fitness focused blog "Running Rainbow" on Hunger Magazine ........... so head over if you are on a similar sporty tip........... here.
