Exercise routines and places: Anything BUT ROUTINE - Go ahead, sweat it

December, 2015

woman ready to run, exerciseYou are always stronger than you think you are. It’s a great mantra to live by. But some days, feeling motivated takes more than thinking positively. It takes doing. For that, you need every trick in the book—starting with great workout wear. It may seem like a small detail, but sometimes just looking the part is all the extra confidence you need to get started. We found our inspiration at two fabulous shops right here in St. Albert: Sweet-Legs and Elevate Activewear. From take-names running tights to lacey legwarmers, there’s an inspiration here for everyone. So go on and sweat the details. Then crush them in style. Take a look.

There’s no shortage of great places to work out in St. Albert. Our photo shoot took us to the fabulous track at Servus Place, but you can also find great trails and running clubs just outside most St. Albert doors.
