My Most Important Fitness Goal in 2017

This post is sponsored by Gordmans.

I’ve been busy identifying and writing down my business and lifestyle goals for this new year. When I got to the fitness component of my goal planning, I decided to maintain the same goal I’ve had for the past few years―embrace physical challenges that take me outside of my comfort zone.

Tank ($11.99, orig. $52) | Sports bra ($12.99, orig. $58) | Leggings ($16.99, Orig. $50)

Sneakers ($51.96, orig. $75)

When I started resistance training a few years ago, something I never imagined enjoying, I learned so much about my body’s strength. As I got stronger, I felt more and more empowered to do anything. So, since it’s the start of 2017, I’ve been busy exploring new workouts to mix up my routine.

I’ve already joined an Athletic Training class at my gym. I’m planning to try my gym’s new Synergy and No Hold Barre classes as well. With a packed week of classes, I’ve been shopping for a few new pieces of activewear to meet the demands of the workouts. I’ve found some of my favorite name brand workout gear at Gordmans at affordable prices before, so Gordmans was a first stop.

As usual, Gordmans came through for me. I always wear black at the gym, so I rely on stylish details to add a little flair to my workout style. And, the pattern on these HEAD leggings at Gordmans had me at first sight. The 90 Degree black tank was an immediate favorite as well because of the fashionable and functional mesh panel at the back. I also found a chic 90 Degree sports bra with cutouts at the back. By the way, the total retail cost for all three items would be $160. At Gordmans, though, the total was only $41.97!

Of course, no workout look is complete without the perfect pair of sneakers. And, I knew that the Puma Carson Illusion running shoe were the ones the moment I put them on and experienced the SoftFoam cushion insole. Every step feels like I’m walking on clouds. The overall modern look of the shoe with the breathable mesh upper was an added bonus.

    I was never a workout wear person until I tried a few pieces. It totally changes my outlook on working out above gave me more comfort. So, I’m always on the hunt now for reasonably priced gear. Thanks for the Gordman’s heads up!

      That’s awesome! Yes, workout wear really does change the experience. If you can visit a physical Gordmans store, you’ll find the largest collection of activewear at the best prices.

    Those Pumas are really cool looking–so nice when what looks good FEELS good on your feet, too! 🙂

      Agreed, Tara. When those two things come together…magical!
