Living a healthy lifestyle and exercising is an essential part of living a green lifestyle. Whether you workout at the gym, at home or outdoors you need clothing to wear that fits what you are doing. Going to yoga class in the comfy huge T-shirt that an ex boyfriend left you does not work when you are doing downward dog or an inversion. Proper clothing is important to make you feel comfortable and for you get the most out of your workout.

When they asked me if I wanted to write about their fitness wear I had a hard time choosing which item I wanted the most. I chose the 26.2 Jacket in black because it was one of the most dynamic pieces that can be used for all kinds of workouts and in everyday life. Runners will love it because it is form-fitting and will not get in your way. Yogi’s will love it because it is longer and will cover their back for all the bending moves. I love it as Mom because it has a hood (required because I do not have a hand for an umbrella) and is fashionable. When I am running around on my errands after I go to the gym (the gym is always my first stop) I need to stuff my keys and my phone in my pocket so I can be hands free. The pockets are deep and zip-up, perfect for me.
Do you like sleeves that have a thumb hole in them so you can have your hand in it? Then the Signature Hoodie is right for you. Do you like long sleeve crew neck shirts? Then you will love the Go Long Crew.
When you are done with all that exercise you can shop their amazing bathing suits for summer. With kids I have learned that a one piece is easier to deal with when carrying kids around the pool. The Criss Cross suit is perfect for carrying around my two kids at the pool and that it comes in my favorite bathing suit color black. I really love the Ballerina suit in Cotton Candy Pink, I think my daughter might jealous of it too. I like how is a mix of feminine and fun. I would also get the Balboa Tunic Dress to use as a cover-up at the pool or beach and in the fall and winter I would wear it will a pair of leggings or skinny jeans.
