WASHINGTON D.C. (Aug. 15, 2012) – The Fuse Pilates team is as ‘hard core’ about fitness fashion as they are about their revolutionary method. Mariska Breland and Roxanna Hakimi, co-owners of Fuse Pilates, share their tips on the latest fall fitness trends and the importance of choosing the right fabric that best suits your workout.
“There are so many options for workout clothes available now that it’s really important to know which fabrics and cuts are better suited for your fitness activity,” says Breland. Their Fuse brand focuses on their ever-evolving workout techniques as well as a healthy lifestyle and some fun with fashion. Breland and Hakimi enjoy keeping abreast of the latest fashion trends and enjoy incorporating them into their ‘work’ attire.
Through research and their own fashion faux pas in the studio, they have learned what fabrics work best for their workouts. When choosing workout clothes, it’s all in the details, a button or a strategic fold in the fabric can make all the difference. Fitness and fashion collide in contributing to your overall well-being and health. When combining the two, the saying holds true that “when you look good, you feel good” and vice versa.
“I believe your workout clothes should reflect who you are and be an extension of your personality. Just as you would style yourself for a night out!” says Hakimi. Breland and Hakimi offer their fitness fashion tips to guide you through the fall season in style!
Fall Fitness Fashion Tips:
- Choose Your Fabrics Wisely: For Pilates and other exercises that require stretching and bending polyester and spandex are the way to go. The stretch in these fabrics enables you to sustain thefluidity in your movements letting you fully focus on your workout.
- Watch Your Back: Fitness fashion can be just as fun as ready-to-wear! Express yourself andshow your fun side with a scoop back or a T-strap back. The front is fully covered letting you bend and move effortlessly into every position without having to worry about overexposing, yet it shows just enough skin to boost up your ‘cool factor’ at the studio.
- “Fall” In Love With Color: The season’s go-to colors are tangerine and titanium. The tangerine adds a little punch of color to your fitness wardrobe and the titanium neutralizes the brightorange shade keeping your fall color palette right on trend.
- Post-Workout Plush: After sweating your way to feeling great, it’s important to stay warm and your body temperature stabilized. A great knit or plush wrap is ideal for the crisp, cool fall nights after you get out of the studio.
