Athletic Couture

Is it just me or is there a certain irony in the fact that while the stores are overflowing with yoga wear, workout gear, and running shoes made for every conceivable exercise and sport, North America is fatter than ever?

People who never enter a gym walk around in sweat pants and track shoes.

And Fitbits, please. Counting the steps to your couch is not exercise.

I have an on-again, off-again relationship with exercise. As we speak, my treadmill is gathering dust, but even I know that fit and fashion β€” not the same thing.

  1. I’m just the opposite. I work out at the gym or on the bike most days. I have trouble taking rest days, despite their being necessary. I hate shopping for clothes, except for athletic gear. Many clothing stores don’t even carry small men’s sizes, but I have no trouble finding gym togs that fit. My wardrobe might be called “jock drag.”


    1. Hi, Brian;
      Sorry it’s taken me so long to respond. I’ve been away and off the grid. Ugh! Still shaking from internet withdrawal πŸ™‚
      LOL! “Jock Drag” looks good on people who actually work out. πŸ™‚

  2. It is the same over here too, Aimer. Loads of overweight people like to wear gym gear out in the street with their tummies hanging over their bottoms and their tops straining to meet them!! There is no way I would inflict that on anyone!
