Have you guys seen the cute activewear worn by Lea Thompson, Karina Smirnoff, Danica McKellar and Petra Mugatroyd this past season on Dancing with the Stars? They were wearing a new brand called Colosseum and it’s a super hip women’s activewear brand that makes sure ladies shape up in style!
I had to get my hands on a few of their designs as it is about to be 2015, a new year with new fitness goals! The best way I know how to keep up with my goals is making sure I mix fashion with fitness. Fashion inspires me so I figure a personal passion fused with personal fitness goals will keep me motivated. Wearing frumpy, baggy clothes at the gym makes me feel depressed and ain’t nobody got time for that!
Another aspect I love about Colosseum is being able to look good in the clothing while doing other activities besides the gym, like grocery shopping, running to dry cleaners, picking up dinner and hanging with my girls. I am a busy woman on-the-go so throwing on cute activewear is a must. No wonder all the hotties from DWTS are wearing Colosseum on and off the show.
When I browsed their website, colosseumbrand.com, I noticed all items are less than a hundred dollars. I appreciate the fact that Colosseum designs are made with quality materials, guaranteeing comfort and functionality. These features alone inspire me to get to the gym and prepare for a new 2015 summer body!
As for the pieces I shopped for, these are the items I brought home —
