Is Your Fitness Wardrobe Too Embarrassing For The Gym? Time For A Makeover!

Fitness - Fashion/Gift

Fitness Wardrobe



Meet Shana. She's a New York City based publicist who's ALWAYS on the move. Her days are packed with client meetings, media events, launch parties, and cabs from downtown to midtown and back. Shana's a busy, career-loving kind of girl, but she's looking to make more time for the gym and would like to feel confident kick-starting a new routine. That's where I come in! In this video I give Shana an emergency fitness fashion makeover that has her feeling confident and excited for gym time.

I love both looks on Shana but the outfit with the silver jacket and matching hair tie from Gap Body is my personal favorite. Shana ultimately decided to go with the NYC inspired look which she felt most comfortable in--smart girl! Comfort is key. Shana looked great during our Tonique workout from start to finish. If you have questions about the fitness couture featured in this video, just give me a shout.

Don't forget to check out Tonique Fitness. Sylwia's killer bod is a testament to her exercise program and she has a growing fan in nyc and internationally. The last time I went to her group fitness class, Ashley Dupree was in full effect and looking phenomenal, proving that a hot body buffers bad press. Elliot Spitzer who?



Leave a comment below about the makeover video and you'll be entered to win a Nike Swift U Back Bra (size medium/coral color). It's my new favorite sports bra because it's made for running and adjusts to fit your cup size, which means small and large chest sizes fit this bra. We're not all built the same (obviously) and it's nice to see a fitness brand like Nike acknowledge that. This sports bra also reduces areas of irritation (i.e. underarm area) as it's made with moisture wicking fabric that's soft on skin without compromising on support. Love it! The Nike Swift U Back winner will be selected on January 4th, 2010.

That workout looked amazing. I can't wait to try my toning pants after Christmas. My daughter is getting me a pair. I never thought about wearing any other type of bra to work out in. Worth a try!

Nice clothes! I need a supportive top like this that doesn't produce the bubble effect!

Julie Cowart December 23rd, 2010 9:04PM

I just learned that cotton isnt the best to work out in. I love my clotton yoga pants butt see I need to update. You made the outfit on her really cute but not too foo-foo looking. Sytlish yet workable. Im ALWAYS looking for a good comfy sports bra for my C's
Thanks for the video

Happy Holidays!!! I loved the Tonique Fitness workout!!!! looked like so much fun.. I am visiting my folks and have not been to the gym in over a week... will pay for this when i get back... luckily, i have no issues with sports bras... so no need to enter me in the contest..i am in love with my Numetrex Heart Rate Monitor Sports Bra. You should check it out.. I use my HRM during workouts and really hated wearing the strap.

I used to work out in Soffee shorts and cotton tees all the time in college ... now I have no idea how I did it! I'm obsessed with my Athleta running leggings (especially in this NYC snow!) and currently have a gift card to Lululemon burning a hole in my pocket. I love Shana's first look - definitely very New York, without sacrificing practicality for style.

Thanks so much for your site. I'm a new mom trying to fit everything in so wearing fashionable workout clothes really saves time! I can do my errands before a workout and look good in my workout clothes. I was wondering, what is the brand of sneakers you have on in the Timeout article? Thanks again!

MizzFIT January 4th, 2011 10:54PM

Hi Andrea,

The sneakers I'm wearing in the Time Out New York article are Nike's LunarEclipse+ Visibility Women's Running Shoe. And guess what? They're AMAZING! I love them in black with the coral colored laces. I also own them in white with the magenta sole but the black pair really pops. They're so much fun to add to a black pants uniform which most of us end up wearing because black is slimming. Beyond that, the shoe is highly functional and great for running or indoor training. I suggest you check them out. Hope this helps and congrats on being a new mommy! I would love to find out what you wore while you were pregnant to work out. Any brands you can recommend to pregnant MizzFIT readers? Thanks so much!

Great episode!!! Thank you MizzFit. I bought all Tonique dvds and absolutely love them and must admit they are butt kicking.

nell March 19th, 2011 2:59PM

Girls! YOU ROCK! Love you MizzFit, what an incredible figure you have and I adore your style and creativity...useful information... really enjoyed Tonique...look forward to more great tips

MizzFIT March 19th, 2011 5:07PM

Hi Jen,

Butt-kicking might be an understatement. I contemplated a wheel chair after doing my first Tonique dvd. Can you believe Sylwia does that workout everyday! It's unbelievable. I really have to give it to her! Have a great weekend and enjoy the Tonique burn!


MizzFIT March 19th, 2011 5:12PM
