Athleisure Time

Athleisure Time

I have never been a fan of working out. I’m still not really a fan of working out. Sweating, being out of breath, all of that. . .nope nope nope.

The only time I can actually work out is if I go with a partner to a group class or to yoga. If I were to go to the gym by myself, I’d probably just end up walking slowly on the treadmill for thirty minutes while watching an episode of Friends (and not breaking a sweat).

That’s why, when BooHoo reached out to me and wanted to do a collaboration featuring their athleisure line and Yogaworks, I jumped at the chance.

See, I’ve been wanting to get some exercise in this year ever since I cancelled my gym membership but just wasn’t sure where to look. NYC has a ridiculous amount of exercise options (at even more ridiculous prices) and I didn’t know where to start. So the collaboration offer happened at the best moment.

The Yogaworks studio in Soho is a huge space. It doesn’t seem like it, since it’s right in the middle of the craziness that is Chinatown and Soho, but once you climb the stairs and enter into the second floor door, it’s huge. High ceilings, plenty of amenities (water, feminine products, yoga mats, athletic wear) and anything you could need. The bathrooms are large and with many lockers and the instructors are all super sweet. There’s even a small area to hang out in after you’re done with classes.

The rooms where the classes are conducted are large. The windows are almost floor to ceiling so it really lets in a lot of light and the classes that happen during sunset are just so beautiful to be in.

But let’s get to the fashion part. . .I was a little hesitant to order from BooHoo, since I’ve never ordered from them before. However, the prices are fair and the clothing is super cute. I ordered a matching NYC legging and bra top. The leggings were pretty thin (perfect for yoga) as was the top so I wouldn’t recommend walking around the city in just this, but to work out in, it was perfect. I also loved the green mesh zip up, which paired so well with the whole look. I also grabbed a cropped baby blue sweatshirt, which was a great topper for after you’re done with class and want to just run home.

    HAHA! I also have such a hard time going to the gym that sometimes i even eat fruits on the treadmill, I mean, who does that! This collab sounds great girl!

  • Thomas Falkenstedt

    Haha, you’re so like me. I need a group class to even get me going or I’d end up on the treadmill looking at some crap on TV, which I basically could have done on my couch. What does help though is some great athleisure wear and this look should totally inspire you to go to the gym more often! 🙂

  • This is the perfect athleisure look, and I love the hip-hop inspiration with the New York top! I thought I was the type of person that couldn’t go to the gym alone but it’s actually the only time during the day where I have time to myself where I don’t have to “work.” It’s great!

    I find it hard to believe you don’t work out; you look so fit girl! I always jump at the chance to review athleisure and fitness attire since I love them so much. Boohoo has some of my favorite styles, along with affordability!

  • I also love working out on my own. That way you can focus on the parts that are important for you to train. Love your workout look, X Charissa.

  • Loving the stylish workout gear! Wearing cute workout clothes totally keeps me motivated to work out as silly as that may be, but I’m not a fan of working out either so something’s gotta keep me at it!! Will definitely have to check out Boohoo’s athletic collection.

  • Hey Darling:)
