GEAR UP FOR SPRING

Five ways to refresh your workout and your workout wardrobe.

SWITCH UP YOUR ROUTINE.

Sometimes you need a break in your routine to feel more motivated. Get moving in a new dance class like Skybeat at Equinox, which combines basic plyometrics, aerobic sequencing, and simple hip-hop dance moves. Or get your body and mind strong in their Active Regeneration series, Headstrong.

KICK OLD SHOES TO THE CURB.

Worn out sneakers can actually be doing you more harm than good. Take the time to get properly fitted and replace any inserts you may need.

EAT CLEAN.

Spring is the perfect time to hit up Bethesda’s farmers markets for colorful fresh fruits and veggies, herbs, and lean proteins. Add some of those fruits and herbs to your water to stay hydrated all day!

CHANGE YOUR SCENERY.

We all know nature is good for the soul. Swap your treadmill and exercise bike for a fresh-air run or bike ride while trees and flowers are at their pretty peak.

BREATHE.

As in clothes that breathe. Once temperatures rise outside (and in your hot yoga class), you’ll want workout wear that wicks moisture away and keep you cool. Try Lululemon’s new Everlux™ fabric tights that are engineered to allow maximum airflow.
