This  conversation has been sponsored by AthletaAs always, all opinions are my own.

No matter where you are in your fitness journey, finding the way you, your body and your soul likes to move will be the game changer in sticking with any fitness regimen! Movement comes in many forms and is not a one stop shop for all. With all of the personalities I and every other woman has swirling around their pretty little heads, finding a movement style that resonates with every personality is 100% possible; however,  it takes time, patience and more often than not it means laughing at yourself when it all goes terribly wrong.  One day you may be feeling anger and a boxing or a HIIT session may be your calling your name. Other days you may be bursting with energy and a dance or cycling class may be the key in releasing the hounds on the endorphins train. The most important takeaway here is that you move your body on a regular basis. Movement simply put helps you feel better mind, body and soul.

In order to find a movement and/or class that works for you my biggest suggestion would be to join a health club or app service that offers a variety of instructors and styles. This way you can ease your way in, move with a purpose and not spend an arm and a leg on joining multiple studios. Lastly, get some cute workout clothes! Have you ever noticed how an outfit can change your entire demeanor? When I get new workout gear or new kicks I often find an increased pep in my step,  a little more swagger and increased power in my workouts.

Speaking of power, The new POWERVITA collection from Athleta offers innovative, interlocking construction that gives a lighter than light, hugged-in feel. The wicking fabric pulls sweat away from the body so it can evaporate faster yet it is breathable enough that sweat can travel to the surface and evaporate faster. It honestly feels like my body is being hugged in all the right places yet I do not feel suffocated in any way. I love that the white bra is great for HIIT sessions and the adjustable braletts are perfect for Yoga and Barre. They offer more than enough support, but feel like they are barely there. As far as sizing goes I size down to an XS in both tops and bottoms.

This fall, let Athleta and the POWERVITA collection help propel you forward and give you the confidence to try something new! Add layers for a cute athleisure style that can easily transition from the studio to the streets and embrace the #PowerofShe.

Truly, I cannot believe we are only weeks away from closing out the summer and breaking out all things pumpkin spice and cozy layers. Even though I live in Florida, the temps in the fall still dip in the evenings and we take respite from the 90 plus summer temperatures. This also means layers are key to remaining comfortable throughout the day! Cue: a little help from Old Navy style!

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.

The Enlite Bra has redefined what high performance support and comfort feel like and I cannot wait to put it to the test! Stay tuned for more from Lululemon and the Enlite bra and have a fabulous week!

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...

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.

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!

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.

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!

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.
