Getting In The Zone: Fluorescent Fitness


If you find the thought of working out a little mundane there’s one sure fired way to become a keen bean, and that’s fun clothing. I started going to the gym in black, yes all black, like I was mourning the loss of my fitter body perhaps…

Jokes aside, black clothing in general does makes me feel comfortable, however I do love a bright pop of colour thrown into the mix, just for good measure.

I like a sweet dash approach when it comes to neon, I prefer to place it against a blank canvas to emphasise the shades without clashing, normally I’ll go for fluorescent trainers then keep the rest dark, see a perfect example here, or bright yoga pants paired with black trainers and a vest. It’s a simple recipe and an easy way of incorporating some intense shades into your workout wardrobe without feeling like a 90s raver, unless of course, that is your intention..

  • Trainers – Nike 
  • Sports bra – Nike (similar)
  • Yoga trousers – H&M (similar)
  • Shorts – H&M
  • Hair ties – H&M
  • Band – Gift (top tip – if you don’t have an arm band for you phone use one of these!)
  • Shaker – Maxitone
  • I tend to stick to dark or black leggings (unless I’m feeling brave or know I’m only training my upper body) but really like to inject a little colour when I can too – normally my tops or bras – as it’s nice to have a little fun with your gym wear. VS Pink is always a good choice if you’re looking for fun gym clothes.
