Inspiration For Autumn Workouts

By Gee Marling

Some people dread summer’s departure: no more rosė drenched evenings on restaurant terraces, no more festivals, and for most of us, no more sunny vacations until next year. It’s hard not to greet the change in season with a heavy heart… But one sure fire way to beat the autumn blues is to stay active. Even when the warm sun has been replaced by a gloomy chill, you’re pretty much guaranteed to feel good once the body’s in motion. To get you up, at ‘em, and excited about training, we’ve picked the best outfits for an autumnal workout.

Coordinated Clothing

This autumn as far as exercise is concerned, your motto should be: Take care of your activewear and your activewear will take care of you. Knowing that you have coordinated workout clothes saves time too, as it dispenses with the need to scrabble around on a dark morning looking for mismatched separates. Ernest Leoty’s Perform Bra and Leggings in Navy/Black will make you look pulled together and ready for your 7am class even if you don’t feel it just yet.

Adapt To Your Surroundings

A new season calls for a new palette as the light pastel colours of spring and summer just won’t feel right come September/October. Embrace all that autumn has to offer and reflect the changing season in your workout wear. The rich jewel tones of the Ilona Bodysuit in Navy/Teal stand out beautifully against newly burnished copper-coloured leaves, and will help you feel like you’re at one with Mother Nature rather than resisting her.

Buddy up

How much do you love it when a friend joins you for a class? It can be intimidating walking into a new space with a room full of people who all seem to know each other and have been coming to the studio since forever, so teaming up with a partner in crime can be just the ticket to getting you out of bed and into workout session.

Try Something New

If the idea of a frosty morning run fills you with dread then try something new. Ballet, for example, is not the sole preserve of an elite handful of men and women with preternaturally long limbs, it actually makes for a great core workout for all body shapes and sizes. Our Ilona Bodysuit is perfectly suited to all types of dance activities with its graceful sunken neckline and elegant slender straps.
