If Kat Von D and Amy Winehouse Went to the Gym Together...

Fashion/Gift - Trending


If Kat Von D and Amy Winehouse went to the gym together...

  • Kat would be clear-minded from lots of yoga and find herself a real man. Perhaps a CrossFit hottie.
  • Amy would be so hooked on her natural endorphins she'd be the last to leave the gym.

Obviously there's no chance of this ever happening due to Amy's untimely passing, but that doesn't mean a girl like myself can't be inspired by the thought of it. Kat and Amy have always gone against the grain with their fashion and lifestyle choices. I admire their strength and radiance, and believe they would've made great workout partners.


Can you imagine what they'd wear to the gym? Let's take a look.

Below are some tatoo-bearing shots of Kat Von D looking very fitness-y. Much like Lady Gaga, her activewear picks look cool but don't guarantee comfort for high performance.

Here's how I'd make Kat Von D's get-up a bit more gym-friendly and moisture wicking:

Fitness fashion featured: Nike Scrimage Vest ($10)Slashed Leggings ($15.95), LP Studio Bra #002 in Pincelada ($49), and Alexander McQueen Eagle Print Sneaker for Puma ($200).


Kat's workout of choice?

My best guess is Whipped!, a group fitness "rope lifting" class offered at Equinox gyms. Why? Because she's tough, likes to hang with the boys, and her arms read like a resume so she has to keep them nicely sculpted.


Let's move on to Miss Amy Winehouse who wasn't a stranger to working out.

Amy loved trapeze fitness, gymnastics and aerial yoga. I could totally see her taking lessons at The Espana-STREB Trapeze Academy (one of my favorite spots to fly in nyc).

Amy could work out in anything.

She was most comfortable in her Nike sports bra and denim cut-offs. Since we all know denim tends to be contricting especially when heavy with sweat, here's a better way to pull off Amy's look that's totally stylish and very functional.

Fitness fashion featured: Nike Victory Shape Women's Sports Bra ($45), Fakie Boardshorts by Roxy ($46), and Rudolf Dassler Rhythm ballet flats ($57).


Love how you look to find happiness at the gym.

Take inspiration from these one-of-a-kind ladies. You don't have to fit in with everyone else at the gym to be fashionable. Just rock your own look but make sure it's built for moving and sweating your butt off.

Say what's on your mind!

I think Kat did work out a little bit but I absolutely don't think Amy did.

Hi Monica!

Interesting... I scoured the World Wide Web (lol) for pics of Kat Von D working out and found none but I found lots of Amy Winehouse doing trapeze and gymnastics though. But you could be right. I do know that Kat works out at Equinox and they'd never let the paparazzi go inside after her. Amen.

Thx for commenting!

Hi MizzFit,

Maybe it's just in my mind where I think Kat looks healthier and Amy never did in my opinion. Either way, Amy passing was a tragic loss. BTW - I really enjoy your website!

Kat always looks healthy, you're spot on about that and Amy never appeared to recover from her addiction demons. It's so sad that she's left this earth but God knows everyone around her tried to help her. Thank you so much for making my day with your amazing compliment. It feels good to know you enjoy what I write! Have a great day!

I can't see Kat working out at all, but somehow it doesn't surprise me that Amy loved to fly. It really is sort of other worldly and I can see her loving that. I am totally with you on Streb too, it really is amazing isn't it??

MizzFIT August 4th, 2011 5:34PM

Hi Maggie,

I agree...It's hard for me to imagine Kat working out but I know she does. It's way easier for me to envision Amy Winehouse taking up some kind of fitness trend, because Amy really valued her free time. She loved St. Lucia and spent a lot of time there getting healthy, or at least trying to. I like to think Amy was capable of anything and I love the fact that pics of her working out are online for all to see because tons of people only think of her as a drug addict. There was a lot more to her than that .

STREB is AMAZING! It's where I had my first trapeze class and got over my fear of swinging. I even did a video about it HERE:

Bobby Hedglin-Taylor who works there is the sweetest and coolest guy. I'm glad you've experienced this special place. I can't way to go back :)

Thanks for leaving your comment!
