Warm-Up Gear to Heat Up Your Workout

My style this time of year always revolves around layering and my workout wardrobe doesn’t fall far behind. It’s getting to be that time where it’s wayy too chilly to get to the gym without a few extra layers added on top. And our window of ‘walking-home-from-the-gym-without-changing-out-of-our-sweaty-clothes’ is most certainly closed. Bittersweet, that’s for sure. Upsetting that cooler (and then much cooler) temperatures are setting in for the foreseeable future, but I always look forward to busting out some long-sleeved layers. At least for a month or two, anyway. ๐Ÿ™‚

A cozy crewneck sweatshirt is the perfect topper in the fall. From the fun stripes to the thumbhole details, you can’t go wrong. I have it layered with a long-sleeve tee underneath for extra warmth. The adidas Ultimate Tee is one of my favorite short-sleeved tees and I’ve been loving it’s long-sleeved sister over the last month. Greatย for layering to-and-from the gym or for an outdoor workout!

    There is nothing worse than leaving the gym in sweaty clothes in the dead of winter! Not to mention the fact that it’s probably dark, too. I need to pick up a beanie like that so my hairs don’t freeze haha
