Fashion Forward: Workout Wear
Just because you're working out at the gym doesn't mean you can't look good doing it. High tech fabrics and high style are taking workouts to another level.
Elena Faggioni works out 6 days a week.
When she shops for workout wear she looks for comfort, versatility, and style.
Elena Faggioni, who is a runner, says "Nowadays women we don't have time to change to change from clothes to clothes to do different activities we just go from one to another without changing..."
Elena is not alone that's why at Niketown you can just do it in style.
Sure there's different looks for different sports, or fitness routines, but these clothes are made to fit your lifestyle.
They come with all sorts little compartments built right in so you can stash your stuff and they can go from the gym straight to the shopping mall.
Because at Nike the tops, pants, and just about everything else, are made with what they call a dri-fit fabric.
Cindy Carter, Niketown, says "Dri fit is a moisture wicking fabric when your running and working out which means it wicks the moisture away from your skin it keeps you cool and dry so you don't see the sweat on your clothes it wicks it away and it keeps you dry.."
Burdines takes the look to another level with these separates almost too cute to workout in.
Tennis anyone? How about a jog?
Who knew sweats could be so stylish.
Melissa Goff, from Burdines, says "They're not just throwing on a t-shirt and a pair of gym shorts anymore they know that it's a social thing as well as a physical workout also. So they're gonna look their best when they go to the gym and work out. Unless of course you're me..."
