Fun, Fitness and Fashion, Bring on the Fitness Season

May and the spring season is the start of many people wanting to have fun, start some fitness routines and of course new fashions to help make it that much better.  It’s no surprise then,  that everyone seems to be in a better mood.

May is that month where there is a lot happening and everyone seems to be moving in some direction or other.  We can feel that the air is getting warmer and it just begs us to get outdoors and do something.  So what are the latest fashion trends for curvy women who are looking to get and stay fit?  And what are some of the latest fitness trends to help curvy women feel strong and well balanced?

fun, fitness, fashion trends for women, fabulous

Well,  let’s just say that there are some really great opportunities out there to work your body so that you remain healthy.  Curvy women were sometimes forgotten in the fashion industry, especially when it comes to work-out wear.  Not so any longer!

 Hurray!

With the advent of Yoga as a really good way to exercise, there is also a growth in the fitness wear made for all that stretching and moving. Hula Hooping is another trend that is growing by leaps and bounds.  It will take you back to a time when you could move for hours without end. Of course, there is also water activities that are great for everyone, curvy ladies included.

 

Before you start your new exercise routines, you need some new duds to work out in.

Following some of the latest fashion trends for women, I offer you a great selection from some of the best athletic wear manufacturers, all available through Amazon.

Let’s go!

Colorful and stretchy capris will make you feel like you have a second skin on. Comfortable and really nice to wear, these capris will look good and help you feel comfortable in any exercise program you choose. Walking, yoga or even swimming can all be done wearing these lovely 3/4 Capri style pant.

Pair these Capri pants with a really snazzy athletic top that adds just a little pizzazz where you want it.  Comfortable and stylish this top is great for all your activities and with its little cutouts, it is modern and trendy too.

This one is a favorite of mine.  I love the colors that it comes in and you can’t beat the price.  Why not add one or two to your workout gear.  It is affordable, looks really nice and will make you feel beautiful inside and out.  The latest fashion trend of adding mesh to your look is part of the beauty of these tops.  It is an accent that just makes this a trendy beautiful and comfortable addition to your modern-day workout gear.

Breathability and airiness are important aspects when you are undertaking some new exercise routines. A splash of color doesn’t hurt either. I love tops that make me feel energized and these are no exception. Lightweight and comfortable for almost any activity, these tops will help encourage you to show your colors to the world.  This is one of the latest fashion trends for women who are looking to have fun, get fit and be fashionable too.

My New Great Exercises

My own new routines will include hula-hooping and swim walking.  Why you might ask?  Well, let’s just say that as a child I hula hooped for hours outdoors and enjoyed it a lot! Now that I am a certain age, running does not quite fit my lifestyle, but hula hooping does.  Does this make you want to try?  My friends at RubyHooping.com can get you started if you want to join me.  Ruby Hooping will help you get started on the right foot so to speak.

Swim walking is another part of my new fitness routine.  You see I am a curvy lady.  Curvy ladies don’t like to bounce around a lot.  But swimming and swim walking will be perfect for me.  My legs are not the strongest anymore, and walking in a pool will take the burden off of my knees while still giving me a great workout.  I may be curvy, but I am not out of shape, just my shape is different than yours.

I need to show you one more beautiful trendsetting top before I tell you more!  You need to check this one out!  It comes in solid colors as well as tie dye in several different colors too.  I love this latest fashion trend for its style as well as it’s colors and prints.  Knock me on my bottom, I need some of these for my workouts too!

Yoga is also becoming a part of my life.  Curvy gals need to stretch as much as our slimmer counterparts!  Yoga is the answer again because the movements are slow stretches that engage all your muscle groups without jarring you from one galaxy to the next. To see how to start a yoga exercise routine if you are curvy and have never done this before, this video link is a great start. Beginners Yoga for Curvy Women

You can bet that I will be looking fashionable and ready for fun and fitness in my new routines to keeping fit and healthy. I will be sporting the latest fashion trend for women who are eager to join the ranks of the fit and fabulous.

FYI!

Most work-out clothes are machine washable, but, I prefer to hand wash mine.  Most of these outfits are made with some amount of spandex in them.  This stretchy fabric will last so much longer if you take the time to give them a good hand wash.  Then hang to dry after your fitness routine is done.

Come on back and tell me how you are doing with your new routines. Spring is rolling into summer.  I’d love to hear from you!

    Your selections are great! Regardless of my chosen activity or exercise, I still want to be completely covered.

      I agree with you completely. When I’m exercising I don’t want all of my body hanging out there I like my modesty to be apparent. I just can’t do the “show it all off” routine. It takes my focus off of my activity.
