Are workout pants the next jeans? Great places to shop for Fitness clothes.

How fun is it to buy exercise clothes? I remember 3 years ago it was hard to find anything cute. Remember the nylon pants and jackets that matched? (Oh My) Now its hard to just buy one item everything is so fun and screams fashion.

Everywhere you go you see people wearing exercise clothes. At the mall, in the grocery store, out to dinner. What do you think? Are workout pants the next jeans?

Fit Beyond 50

I just wanted to share with you this great article about woman over 50 in great shape. It is work to be fit beyond 50 but anyone can do it!
I have always been a fan of Cory Everson. She has the best body and spirit, even now at the young age of 54. She won the Ms. Olympia contest six years in a row from 1984 to 1989.

I did a bodybuilding show a couple years ago at the age of 50.

Get Fit In Style!

So excited about my new blog! I am going to educate and motivate you to get fit in style.

Please interact with comments and photos. It makes it much more fun and one of my goals for this blog is to have FUN!

As we talked about in the first blog, to kick off the launch of the blog, Elite Physiques is hosting a contest to see who can send in the most “Fitness Fashion” photos. 

We all have lots of exercise clothes in our closets that we don’t wear, and you may have received new styles at Christmas. In January and February, break out those leg warmers, sweaty bands and wicking shirts and let’s see the photos from each time you work out! 

My goal is to get back into some of the pants I love but are too tight. What do you think of my fitness pants?

They look better on, however they do have some big legs. How long have I had these pants??????

                                

I don’t know about you, but fashion helps keep me in shape. I love that fitness clothes have become so fashionable. Because I am in the fitness business, I wear workout clothes almost every day. So excited to have so many stylish choices.

Next post I will share with you some great places to shop for the coolest workout clothes.

OK, now we have to talk about how we are going to look great in our clothes. This is my plan for the next three months in a nutshell:


Workouts


Weight training – 3 times a week (the best way to increase your metabolic rate and burn more calories). I will work 2 to 3 muscle groups each workout, 3 to 5 sets for small muscle groups and 5 to 10 for large, 10 to 15 reps.

Cardio – 3 times a week for 30 minutes unless I take a class which might be one hour. I will take 2 days off but still be active.

Eating plan – this one is easy. No gluten, sugar, or processed foods. Start the morning with a cup of hot water with lemon. Within 2 hours, I will have my green smoothie. On my weight training days I will have 2 eggs with cheese and spinach.  I will eat a normal lunch and dinner (following the rules above) and a snack only if I have to.

I know this is not a lot of information about eating, but we will talk more later. Keep it simple and always know what you are going to eat for the whole week. Cook your food ahead on your day off.

Until next time. 

Stay Healthy,
Sherry
