Updated Fitness Gear

I think I've become obsessed with workout gear during these past months and to support that claim you have the fact that I've completely shunned regular clothing hauls to replace them with workout gear hauls. So far I've made a nice little collection which consists out of two sneakers (one old and one new pair), three leggings, five T-shirts and three sweatshirts. I must say that I love buying workout clothes, they make working out so much easier and fun. Motivation can be found in many places – shopping is often one in my case. For now, I can safely say that 90% of my workout stash consists of Nike and maybe one or two Adidas pieces (although I am open-minded and willing to try some niche brands as well). I just don't know what it is about Nike but they get it right every time. I love their bold colors and patterns, unexpected details, high-quality materials, ergonomic design and simple lines. I love Nike so much that I'm afraid I'll become one of those girls who wear their yoga clothes to the mall, to coffee, for random walks etc. I will purchase some new regular clothes when the time is right (I promise!) and it's kinda inevitable as I'm beginning to ‘swim’ in my old clothes since my body is changing but for now – let us enjoy the sheer pleasure of new workout gear. I've treated myself a few days ago and I couldn't be happier with my choice!

Bojim se da sam postala ovisna o kupovini opreme za trening otkako sam se fizicki aktivirala a u prilog toj tvrdnji ide cinjenica da sam u potpunosti gurnula u stranu samu pomisao kupovine ‘obicne ‘ odjece. Naprosto u svakom momentu radije odaberem da se pocastim dobrim komadom koji ce mi koristiti u teretani nego sto bih kupila n-ti dzemper ili farmerice. Do sada sam uspjela sastaviti jako lijepu kolekciju opreme u kojoj volim trenirati koja se sastoji od dva para tenisica (stare i nove), tri para helanki, pet majica (kratkih i dugih rukava) te tri dukserice. Moram reci kako se motivacija moze pronaci na razlicitim mjestima – u mom slucaju je cesto usko vezana za kupovinu/soping. Kako objasniti da se ne radi o besciljnom konzumerizmu? Naprosto se osjecam kao da pravim isplativu investiciju kako u svoj trening – samim time i u sebe. Takodjer tu postoji vise detalja – odredjeni materijali se ne slazu sa ‘mirisima’ tijela, neki omogucavaju kozi da bolje ‘dise’, pojedini krojevi se ne urezu u kozu stvarajuci nelagodu, deblji djon tenisica pomaze pri absorbciji pritiska i opterecenja noge pri trcanju itd. Kako stvari stoje, 90% moje opreme se sastoji od Nike komada i mozda par Adidas sitnica. Jednostavno je meni omiljeni brend Nike (iako sam otvorenog uma i spremna sam isprobati cak i neke niche brendove). Ono cime me Nike uvijek pridobije su odvazni odabiri boja i uzoraka, visokokvalitetni materijali, ergonomski dizajn i jednostavne, bezvremenske linije. Zaljubljena sam u Nike, toliko da se bojim kako cu postati jedna od onih djevojaka koje nose opremu za jogu i na rucak sa prijateljicama, na kafu, u soping centar, krug po gradu u autu itd. Eventualno cu poceti kupovati i normalnu odjecu (obecavam!) posto je to prilicno neizbjezno – pocinjem ‘plivati’ u trenutacnoj odjeci posto mi tijelo prolazi kroz promjene ali za sada, uzivajmo u opremi za trening. Prije par dana sam se pocastila sa par odlicnih komada i zaista ne bih mogla biti sretnija sa odabirom koji sam napravila!

Sneaker-wise, I have to admit that Pinterest got its hands involved in this. I've seen numerous casual combos featuring these Nike sneakers and I'm in love. I cannot wait for warmer weather to come so I can wear these beauties outside of the gym as well. I'm contemplating including a Pinterest-inspired series of post to the blog as well. These particular sneakers are called Nike Kaishi Run Print and I adore them! There's just something about the neon green soles, they're wavy and they do affect running and general motion by easing off the pressure on the feet. And they're super light as a feather too. They're super comfy but they're also super gorgeous! I love a monochrome look of anything with smart infused pops of color and the blue/green combo at the sides of the soles looks sharp. I've also purchased Nike Women's Legend Tight Fit Dri-Fit running pants/leggings. These are by far one of the best leggings I've worn – completely opaque (thank goodness). So comfy, they are a tight fit but not uncomfortably so and they just look great. I love anything black since it's the most flattering color and it goes with absolutely everything. Nike Women's Legend Tight Fit Dri-Fit bra is also an investment piece and also in black. I could have gone for the turquoise version and the fully black one but the pink details do add a feminine touch. Most importantly, they hold the girls tightly in place which helps whenever you're active but particularly during running sessions. All these Nike pieces are so well made and I feel so equipped now. Only thing I need would be a new gym bag and I'm good to go. Name your fitness, running, pilates, yoga gear bits you cannot live without.

Po pitanju tenisica, moram priznati da je Pinterest umijesao svoje prste u odabir. Pregledala sam nebrojeno odjevnih kombinacija koje sadrze upravo ovaj model i nisam sebi mogla pomoci – morala sam ih nabaviti! Zeljno iscekujem toplije vrijeme kako bih ih pronosala u casual/eklekticnim kombinacijama koje odgovaraju mom senzibilitetu ali neosporno je da su ove tenisice neprevazidjene na traci za trcanje, gdje njihov talenat zasija. Posto Pinterest mnogo volim i ima cesto utjecaja na neke moje stilske odluke, cak razmisljam da na blogu uvedem neku Pinterestasticnu rubriku – sta mislite? Model koji vam zelim pokazati danas su Nike Kaishi Run Print tenisice – zaista je ovo bila ljubav na prvi pogled. Nacin na koji je unutrasnjost napravljena – neonsko zeleni rebrasti djon – mnogo pomaze kod trcanja i uopsteno kod kretanja tako sto ga olaksava i uklanja dio tereta sa stopala. A takodjer su i same tenisice po sebi lagane kao pero. Neopisivo su udobne ali i prekrasne! Dopada mi se monokromni izgled bilo cega, inace preferiram takve komade, a dasak boje u vidu detalja jarkih boja mi je najdrazi nacin da se razbije monotonija. Zeleno/plavi uzorak po strani djonova je tako efektan i privlaci paznju – savrsen je kontrast crno/bijeloj klasicnoj boji materijala. Takodjer sam se pocastila i sa Nike Women's Legend Tight Fit Dri-Fit helankama. Isprobala sam i nosila sam mnogo razlicitih helanki a ove su u samom vrhu. Jako mi je bitno da su u potpunosti neprozirne, strasno udobne iako su uske i izgledaju odlicno. Volim sve u crnoj varijanti posto cini da silueta tijela djeluje lijepo a i kombinuje se doslovno uz sve. Nike Women's Legend Tight Fit Dri-Fit grudnjak/top je takodjer vrijedna investicija – takodjer u crnoj boji. Mogla sam se odluciti za tirkiznu ili potpuno crnu verziju no dopalo mi se sto ruzicasti detalji pruzaju zenstven efekat. Sto je najbitnije, ovaj grudnjak/top je jako cvrst i pruza odlicnu potporu za ‘djevojke’ koje se uopste ne pomjeraju i nema nelagode tokom trcanja ili bilo koje druge fizicke aktivnosti. Svi Nike komadi koje posjedujem su odlicnog kvaliteta  i osjecam se bas spremnom za sve izazove. Jedino sto mi preostaje nabaviti je nova torba gdje cu drzati svoje ljubimce. Koji komadi sacinjavaju vasu opremu za teretanu, jogu, pilates, trcanje itd.?
