Turns out, we're in the minority. Many women equate the yoga studio or pilates class as a bamboo-covered runway to show off their latest workout fashion finds.
I realized I was the fitness fashion victim during a yoga class at exhale recently. I was wearing tattered, 7-year old leggings from Target and an old Texas Rangers t-shirt I had scored during a Rangers/Astros series in 2012. Frankly, working in sports I score so many free t-shirts that I didn't buy workout clothes.

I always equated workout wear as an unnecessary expense, thinking my shorts and t-shirts would do just fine. I'm wrong. There is also some functionality to activewear. Shirts with a banded waist won't ride up and expose my stomach while I'm trying to do a headstand. Longer pants can help with crow pose to keep sweaty legs from slipping on my forearms.
After doing some legwork, I found adorable and affordable activewear options:
|C9 by Champion Women's Mesh Cami Tank|
|C9 by Champion Reversible Capri Tight|
|Nike Principle 2.0 Dry-Fit Jacket|
AND you can support a team you love while working out or running around town and look fashionable in the process. Look at what I found:
Dallas Cowboys Fleece Shorts
I'm still on the hunt for cute Stars & Mavs workout gear. If you find some, please let me know!
