Sun’s out, guns out! Do good on your New Year’s resolutions of staying fit with Sassy Mama’s picks!
Welcome to the new year, mama! We hope you’ve had a wonderful start to 2017 and that you’re maintaining those 2017 resolutions. January is the time of new beginnings and new resolutions to get fit, so here are our top fitness wear and gym gear picks to rally you through those burpees and sun salutations. We’re suckers for anything sparkly and functional… that also distracts us from another push up!
If getting fit is on your agenda for 2017, mama, why not invest in a wearable fitness tracker from Fitbit? With its massive OLED display, the Charge 2 displays your heart rate, tracks a range of sports, offers guided breathing sessions and even tracks your sleep. If you’re sat in one place for too long, it’ll even remind you to get up and move (even if it is to go make a cup of tea!). You can also be matchy-matchy with what you’re wearing with the interchangeable straps.
Available for $238 at retailers around town.
Under Armour’s Fly-By Running Tank Tops come recommended by Sassy Mama’s own editor Kate: “The mesh at the back is great for wicking sweat.” Other than that, the fabric is lightweight, dries quickly and ultimately lets your skin breathe, which is just what you want if you’re hitting the running track hard.
Available for $81.79 from www.underarmour.com.
As a busy mama, it’s hard to factor fitness into the schedule sometimes, so why not bring the yoga studio home? Throw on a video and get to work on those asanas… we guarantee maximum enjoyment on those arm balances on this funky yoga mat from ban.do. And maybe after, you can really take the kids for a slice of pizza as a reward for getting through a session!
Available for US$32 from www.bando.com.
Blaze through those kettlebells and burn off the holiday excesses wearing these printed capri leggings from Terez, a super hot sportswear brand from the USA. After all, everything is more fun with paint splatters… just ask the kiddos! If wearing these don’t get you up and at ‘em, we don’t know what will.
Psst… if your little girl loves these as much as you do, grab similar ones in her size for $69.50!
Available for $108.60 from www.terez.com.
And ohmmm… Low impact exercises require low impact sports bras, such as this Free To Be Tranquil one from lululemon athletica. With soft lycra that gently stretches as you move and sweat wicking fabric, you’ll be a well-supported warrior transitioning in and out of those downward-facing dogs.
Available for US$ 48 from www.lululemon.com, or at lululemon athletica stores around Singapore.
Take big strides with these icy blue kicks from Athletic Propulsion Lab. Keep your feet feelin’ fit and fine with the stretchy yet supportive cushioning. A good pair of sneakers are worth investing in, mama, especially if high-impact exercise is on your list of new year resolutions.
Available for $240.75 from www.shopbop.com.
