Mix and match with a solid hue top and a pair of cool printed joggers. Working out has as much to with your brain as it does with your body – if you don’t think you can, you probably can’t! Trading in your boring gym neutrals for some colours and prints will help those endorphins get flowing.

There’s something really cool about wearing a muscle tee with a printed sports bra peeking from the sides. Pair them with capri’s that have mesh inserts – it’s the only time you should be seen sporting a ‘capri’!
