Getting in shape is a thing everyone aspires to in some degree or another. There’s always something that could be slightly firmer, tighter or more toned. The downside to this – besides the obligatory dieting and having to go to a gym – is that working out catches us in our most unflattering state – sweaty, disheveled and with our hair in disarray. Not to mention having to wear workout clothes which aren’t the most complimentary in any circumstances. Except that last statement isn’t quite true. In recent years gym wear has taken on a whole new dimension and is now functional as well as being downright sexy. To demonstrate, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite ladies who’ve managed to blend fitness and aesthetics to look absolutely gorgeous while rocking workout gear.
Adrianne Ho’s Instagram makes even the most ordinary activity look good. Born of French and Chinese descent, Adrianne is a model, television personality, designer and entrepreneur. She developed a passion for fitness and well-being as well as healthy world cuisines once she started modeling globally. She has featured in adverts and sponsorship deals by numerous brands such as Nike and Levi’s and is generally recognized as one of the leaders in fitness fashion. Her own streetwear collection, Sweat Crew, is a fusion of pragmatic fitness gear and high-fashion sensibility.
With arguably the most famous posterior on the planet (except, perhaps for Kim Kardashian), Jen Selter is definitely in shape. She originally rose to fame through her popular IG account while tracking her workout progress. This undoubtedly had to do with the vast and superior reach Instagram afforded her as opposed to image-sharing rival Pinterest. Although now you can find Jen Selter on the entire spectrum of social media, not to mention magazine covers and television shows. She’s known for modeling various workout leggings and crop tops in a variety of bright hues, as well as for photographing her now famous “belfies” (or butt selfies).
Faya, or rather more well-known by her moniker IG Fitness On Toast, is a half-Swedish, half-English personal trainer residing in London. Her popular blog and Instagram account are focused on sharing healthy recipes, nutritional tips and well-thought-out workout ideas. Moreover, the IG account has become known for its beautiful imagery and sublime photography that captures images from all over the world. Catch Faya in breathtaking gym wear and trainers in a variety of different locations – from London to the Mediterranean – as she shows how wellness and health can look great in any location.
