I'm feeling pretty lucky to have spent so much time travelling so far this year. I still have a few flights to come in the next month, and while I love it, it definitely makes committing to a fitness routine a little challenging. One thing I found on my recent trip to NYC is that there are a few ways to get creative and stay on top without compromising on style. These are my tips for staying motivated and achieving my fitness plan while still feeling (and looking) together.
1. Invest In An Activity Tracker
Nothing helps you stick to your goal like seeing how close you are! The Swarovski Activity Tracker is my latest fitness accessory that helps you monitor your activity during the day, and sleep at night, so you can keep on top. The best part is they come with interchangeable bands, a sleek black one which is perfect for the gym or water-based exercise, or the signature Swarovski fabric which is chic enough for any occasion. I even wore mine a few times during fashion week, I clocked up a surprising amount of steps in heels!
2. Think Elevated Gym Gear
I find if I feel dressed and ready to go, it helps me stick to a schedule and keep on track. There are so many fashion friendly gym options out there now, it makes exercising so easy and you go straight to the shops or from running errands to your class without feeling like you'll get caught out. The one time I do decide to sneak out of my house in an old tracksuit is when I run into someone I know in the cereal aisle, just saying! The sets above I picked up while I was in NYC... look to brands like Nike, Outdoor Voices, The Upside, P.E. Nation and Adidas for a fashion take on your classic leggings and tank.
3. Mix Up Your Routine
Don't be afraid to try something different. I personally love a mixture of Yoga, Pilate and Barre and I love to mix up my style for each. At yoga I feel at ease in a print (event a little bit of colour!), barre is a fun reason to invest in a leotard and wrap top (how gorgeous is this one) and at pilates I keep things simple, chic and monochrome.
