As the Summer months get closer, my news feed is starting to fill with posts about the summer pole camps coming up, and after taking part in two years of Alex pole camp with the lovely Alex Shchukin & Katia Shchukina, I have found that I come to the same dilemma of needing to pack everything for a normal holiday PLUS all the pole stuff into one tiny bag!
Athleisure is EVERYWHERE at the moment…the glut of New Year’s resolutions to get fit will see more people than normal wearing workout gear but this time it’s not going to last for just a month…..no no, this new trend looks like it’s here to stay and for more than just a season too!
Whether it’s on the school run, in line for coffee, over a business lunch; fitnesswear as everydaywear is becoming de rigueur, even if you haven’t worked out! But it’s not the high end fashion designers pushing this trend forward, it’s the health conscious consumers and savvy retailers looking to appeal to the masses.
As the nights are drawing in, thoughts move to cold winters and wrapping up warm. Personally I love winter…but not for pole training! Cold poles, cold floor, longer warm ups….when all I want to do is just dance! So instead of freezing our peachy bums off, I take this time of year as the perfect excuse to shop for winter warm up wear!
When it comes to what to wear, I really like to think about it, firstly because I am a firm believer of what you wear reflects your personality but also because if you feel good in what you’re wearing, you will feel more confident in yourself which in turn will make you have a better training session (and exactly why shopping is good for the soul!).
Here’s a round up of my favourite warm up pieces for training, and don’t forget at the end of this coming month is Black Friday….perfect excuse to stock up before the nights get even colder!
