Specially designed for womens' hands, Femme Fitale fitness training gloves come in animal print or bright colors embellished with matching swarovski crystals. They don't sound like they're practical for the gym but they are! You can use them for weight lifting, spinning, pilates, yoga, rowing and more. Personally, I find training gloves useful for group fitness classes that require a lot of floor work (push ups, mountain climbers, side planks, etc). I'm not a huge fan of touching my bare hands to dirty gym floors, especially when I'm sweating. It's not very hygienic and it really grosses me out especially since studio floors don't get mopped until the end of the day. You might as well lick a door knob.
Femme Fitale gloves kill a few birds with one stone by protect your hands from injury, bacteria and slipping. They're a nice alternative to bulky, masculine styles that you'd find at Sports Authority for women. I'm convinced this is why most women don't wear fitness gloves--because our options are very limited and we don't want our hands to look like mens'. The good news is that you can order these gloves online and save yourself a trip to Sports Authority. The bad news? Deciding between cheetah and zebra print might be hard.
Careful not to over-accessorize with these gloves. Make them your outfit's accent piece not part of a variety show. And don't forget to wash them...sweaty gloves are no good!
