I have a secret to tell you. The only sports bra I wore last week was the Enlite bra. I did barre one day, went for a run another day, taught a “lower half” class  and rounded out the week with a BBG session that left me weak in the knees. I have to say, the Enlite bra kept me supported and comfortable the entire time! Have you ever gone to a class and had your natural boobs look like they are frowning at you in the mirror while you are trying to squat, tuck or burpee? Well, I have and honestly, it is one of my biggest fit-fashion pet peeves. I am a 32 year old woman, who lives on a planet with gravity, do I really have to be reminded about this fact during every single workout? I. THINK. NOT.

Free to Move: lululemon Enlite Bra

This post is sponsored by lululemon. As always, all opinions are my own! All photos by Judy Walker Photography.

Last week I had the opportunity to walk into lululemon and get fit for the new Enlite high-impact bra. As stated in my last lululemon post, the quality and comfort of lululemon products are and will remain at the top of my fit-fashion list. Before heading to the mall, I made an in-store appointment to be fitted for the new Enlite bra, and my experience was honestly fantastic!

As a proud member of the itty, bitty, ti**y committee I never really gave getting my bust measured much thought. Maybe that is because I wear bralettes and sports bras 90 % of the time, and sizes only come in small, medium and large.

Upon entering lululemon, I was greeted and promptly brought to the fitting area where sales associate Maria was waiting with a smile on her face. She prompted me to breathe in and out, while taking measurements like a ninja. Of course, it can be a bit awkward standing in the middle of a store in your undergarments, but there was ample dressing room space for privacy if needed. Getting measured took all of five minutes and it was determined that I was a 34C in the Enlite bra.

I am traditionally a 34B in a regular bra, but felt the fit of the 34C was nearly perfect.  The support comes from underneath your lady bits, and I love it because it felt comfortable, supportive, soft and did not dig in! I know I do not have a very large chest, but most “high support” sports bras leave me with a less than attractive “uniboob” and are painstakingly tight; however, the Elite bra does the opposite. It offers a separate home for each breast and is perfect to wear under your favorite top or by itself.

Adidas Ultra Boost X

Last week was a serious marathon of sweat, unity and fit-fashion excellence! I had opportunity to connect with fit-friends and bloggers across the country, attend a workout fundraiser at The Fit Shop in North Miami Beach and experience the best in fitness from NYC to MIA and beyond. The sweat life has given me a serious boost of inspiration to create, complete certifications and connect with other strong like-minded women.

When I think of household fitness brands, adidas is definitely on the top of my list!

Every woman has her go-to brands to make her feel fabulous, and adidas has been a mainstay in my wardrobe since I was a little bit of a thing. Remember the massaging sandals that took a week to get used to? Well, they are back, and honestly, I think the adidas tracksuit has been on rotation since my mom was shopping for clothes in terms of months.

Find Your ZOKU With Reebok

ZOKU Runner by Reebok

ZOKU’s Japanese translation means to be continued or to be part of a tribe. As a strong millennial woman, I consider my gang of fearless females my ZOKU! They inspire me to be the best version of myself, and honestly, are the reason I continue to share my stories with all of you on my little part of the Internet. The whole ‘mean girls’ trend is like so 2004, and we should work hard as women to leave that shtick in the past and take time to lift our girl gangs up. Support and inspiration of one another should be the wave of the here and now!

ZOKU Runner by Reebok

Like the ZOKU RUNNER, women are incredibly versatile! No offense to my husband, brothers or father, but my rock star gals who are full-time working stay at home mom’s; I bow down to you! You are the real heroes of the household, and no doubt “wear the pants”. Better yet…you wear the “ZOKU RUNNERS”. Women have to be a variety of different people on any given day. They are the cooks, the cheerleaders, the organizers, the boss babes, the goal diggers, the wives, the girlfriends, the coaches and often times the fathers. Women are truly what make the world go round. So thank you mom for all of the sleepless nights and sacrifices you made for us!

lululemon has been a mainstay in this health and fitness junkies life for some time now. They are brand I stay loyal to for many reasons; three being: comfort, style and timelessness of their pieces. To me, diving into the NULUX collection is like stepping out your front door and into a cool-crisp spring morning. You know the type I am talking about. The mornings where you walk out the front door when the sun is just beginning to shine, the birds are chirping, there is dew on the grass and a slight lingering chill is holding on for dear life as the first sign of daffodils pop up to say “hello”-just in time for your morning walk or run.

Nulux…It feels like running naked on a perfect spring morning.

Nulux...it feels like... Nulux...it feels like...

122A0675Nulux fabric is quick-drying, sweat wicking and offers lightweight coverage for all of your fitness needs. In other words, Nulux bra’s and tights fit exactly how I like them to, whether I am going out for brunch or am in the “pursuit of sweat” from my weekly barre classes to outdoor run or HIIT training session.

The Nulux Fast and Free Crop is high-rise and can be cinched at the waist to customize fit. Reflective details also help to keep you on the radar during your early morning or post dusk time on the road.

Living in Miami means you can take your workout outside 365 days a year; however, the extreme summer heat can also leave you feeling breathless in a short period of time. Investing in gear that lets your body breathe and leaves you comfortable is the key to success!

Null...it feels like

The Nulux Fast and Free Crop and Bra come in a variety of bright spring prints and colors! I love how the bra cuts in at the clavicle and adds ample coverage and boost without feeling suffocated or restricted. The Nulux fabric offers barely-there sensation, quick drying, lightweight coverage that is perfect for a training session at the park on the beach or wherever life takes you!

Nulux by lululemon

The crazy smooth fabric is also great for layering! I plan on wearing mine well in summer and I hope you do too! As the temps begin to rise and the last of the snow melts away I encourage you to start aNU in Nulux!

Don’t let your workout clothes get the best of you. Head over to  lululemon.com or show up in store, pick out your favorite look, grab your equipment, get outside and live #TheSweatLife this spring.

Get “naked” with Nulux! Designed with you in mind.

A How To Guide: Dressing the Athletic Body WITH SAKS OFF 5TH

Happy Thursday Everybody! I am heading to New York as we speak and I am BEYOND excited! One of my best friends from college is getting married and I get to spend time quality time with family, friends and clients over the course of the next six days. In true Walker-Sinning fashion Cory and I are meeting at the airport on his layover, flying to New Jersey before going our separate ways a whopping 48 hours later. AHHHH the sacrifices you make for love and real life face time.

Like most millennial couples we are doing what we have to do now to set us up for the next chapter in our lives. We are constantly on-the-go, but make sure to find the time to play! We are heading to the Dominican Republic for an adult ‘spring break’  in a few weeks and in my excitement I have started to shop for everything from dresses to swimsuits to cover-up’s and sandals!

ATHLETIC BODY

They opened a Saks Off 5th right near my house and next to the place where I get my hair blown out. The convenience has seriously become an inconvenience to my bank account. LOL They carry so many of my favorite activewear brands like: Alo Yoga, PRISMSPORT, Reebok and more! SAKS Off 5th carries tons of essentials to help you hit the gym in the latest trends. They are always stylish, on-trend and affordable!

Cool and Casual ‘Good Vibes’ With K-Swiss

Good Vibes With K -Swiss

Hi guys! Don’t you just love a short weeks? I do too!  I am headed to New York/New Jersey for a combo of work and play this week. I get to see my best friends from Towson at a wedding, my family and I even happened to book a great job in NYC! I must say, there are ‘good vibes’ hanging out all around me.

K-Swiss Classic Casual

As Cory and I get older, family, friends and good food are what makes us tick. We are both relatively no muss no fuss types, and our wardrobe needs to be on the same level. As you know by now, I am a jeans and T-shirt kind of gal. I pair sneakers with almost anything, and I nod to my inner athleisure goddess any chance I can get. I love to get dressed up every once in a while, but honestly, this is how I dress 90+ percent of the time. This simple look is perfect for travel, errands or the carpool. It is all things comfy, cozy and perfect for spring.

K-Swiss Classic Comfort

I was gifted these uber comfy K-Swiss kicks and I am in L-O-V-E with the metallic details. To me, metallics elevate any look and  I have been pairing these sneakers with everything from denim and fitness gear to skirts and t-shirt dresses. They are a classic design with a comfortable memory foam insole! They really feel like you are walking on air.

I have quite a wide foot and have some trouble with certain types of shoes. These do not rub or feel snug in any way. AND most styles cost less than $60.00!

K-Swiss Comfort

I really want to purchase more K-Swiss sneakers in the very near future. I have thesethese and these on my wish list.

I also wanted to share the story of K-Swiss because well, it is motivating and fancy and makes me want to join a country club…immediately. 

K-Swiss was founded in 1966 by two Swiss brothers, entrepreneurs who moved to California to pursue their dream of starting their own footwear company. As avid skiers they drew inspiration from leather ski boots to create the first all-leather tennis shoe. Both sports share the need for a tight fit that supports aggressive side-to-side movement. This is how the K-Swiss Classic was born, and it remains one of the most influential sneakers of all-time, winning numerous awards for excellence and success over our nearly 50 years in existence. During that time, K-Swiss has powered some of the world’s best tennis players to major championships. But the sneaker has also earned a place as one of the style icons of our generation, worn casually in country clubs and just as fashionably on city streets.

Women Warriors #BeOne Movement by StellaValle


StellaValle Women Warriors #BEONE

Happy Friday everyone! As we head into the weekend I thought this would be the perfect time to share an inspiring project that has been a labor of love for my StellaValle sisters over the past few months!  The dynamic duo of StellaValle (Paige and Ashley), are both former military officers, entrepreneurs and the brains behind the jewlery line: StellaValle. Paige and Ashley started their company with a homemade bracelet and a dream. With a very small loan and a fierce work ethic, they got SV up and running. We shot the first photos for the company five years ago, and in that short period of time the two inked a deal with two Sharks on ABC’s “Shark Tank”, were inducted into the CFDA and have been featured in every major fashion publication you can think of! The StellaValle sisters have designed lines for Target, made appearances on QVC, and have been an inspiration throughout my journey as fitness model and blogger!

Today is a day that the Women Warriors #BEONE movement becomes a reality! The Women Warriors #BEONE movement inspires women to be the best version of themselves, achieve their biggest dreams, and have a positive impact on others while doing so.

How to Transition Faux Leather Leggings From Day to Night

Happy Humpday! I have been able to be home and in my own bed since Saturday!  I have to tell you what a glorious feeling it is. I am a homebody, and completely obsessed with having a routine and cooking in my own kitchen [if you couldn’t tell from my Insta stories LOL]. As most of you know, I am a part-time blogger and group fitness trainer and full-time model and wife. I cannot even imagine what life is going to throw at me when we add M-O-M to that list. Cory and I were sitting at dinner last night discussing the whirlwind that is our life. We are constantly two ships crossing in the night, and although we miss each other often, we would not have it any other way. I always say we are “codependantly independent”. We both have our own dreams, goals and aspirations, but at the end of that day, we could not do what we do without the love and support of each other. So thanks boo for allowing me to chase my dreams one certification, photoshoot or day at a time!

Fit Fashion

I was not expecting to get all sentimental this morning because this post is actually about fashion, but I was thinking about my life as a girl on-the-go [I’m literally writing this post as I get my hair blown out at blo Aventura...thanks Tiffany!]. The last thing I want is for my clothes to slow me down. So, if I am tying to look put together while running around like a crazy person, this is the type of outfit I would choose. Most of what I wear on the regular has an athleisure vibe to it. A great dress and pair of heels are totally my jam, but they have a time and a place! I am not a girl that will have a full face of makeup and six inch stilettos on at the grocery store. I am more of a tights, Nikes, and my hair in a pony gal. Ya dig?

Faux Leather Leggings

Today’s look is all about transitional style and the ability to move seamlessly from day to night with the simple switch of a shoe [and maybe a bag]. Leather leggings are my go-to for feeling comfortable yet put together. I love these faux ones that I have from Nordstrom. I have friends who invested in Helmut Lang and Rag and Bone leggings and they absolutely rave about them! Seriously, they are H-O-T. You can pair leather leggings with just about any look: sneakers, sandals, chambray. You name it! If there is one timeless investment piece  I suggest splurging on: it is leather leggings. If you are vegan or against wearing leather or your bank account does not allow the real deal, there are tons of faux options like these or these!

Nike Juvenate

I love pairing mine with my Nike Juvenate. You have probably seen them all over Instagram for a reason. They are the perfect non-running sneaker. The Juvenate shoe comes in a million different colors and fabrics. They are lightweight and super affordable! Unlike their Air Max counterparts, most Juvenate’s run for under $100.00. A bargain as far as sneakers are concerned! A quick flip of the shoe and this look can easily transition from day to night. I try to step out of my comfort zone, but it can be difficult!

athleisure

You can wear real or faux leather leggings all year round! If you have  favorite brand, please let me know in the comments section below or show me how you style them today! Like I said, I have been home and have been back in the kitchen…stay tuned for some yummy quick-fire recipes whipped up by yours truly.
