I made a conscious decision at the start of 2017 to move more. As many of you will already know, I have Fibromyalgia and this affects many aspects of my life. The sort of exercise that is recommended to people like me is graded exercise and I've decided to seriously get going with my training.
When Nike contacted me to collaborate with them on the launch of their Black & White Collection it was the push I needed to get me started. I recently joined my local gym in Leytonstone and thankfully now that Nike have items for everyone in your crew; there is no excuses not to get moving.
The Black & White Collection includes pieces for everyone. Whether you're a runner, you're into training or you simply love Nike's lifestyle garments; all bases are covered! I plan on mixing and matching items from all of their ranges and adding my personal *Danie Pizazz* to all of my looks. I make such an effort with my day to day dressing, why should that stop at my work out gear?
The thing I am most happy about is the fact Nike now have a plus size range (sizes XL-3XL) and I wanted to show you some of the items available in their Training category. It's one thing to see the garments on a model, on the site but what better way to see if they'll work for you; than showing you how they look.
Here's a breakdown of what I'm wearing, the sizes I picked and why I like each piece.
Nike Power Legendary Mid Rise Tights (plus size, size 3X) - Although these tights are described as 'mid rise' I absolutely love how high you can pull them up. The tight, soft material holds you in place and their Dri-FIT technology means you're gunna stay dry and therefore more comfortable whilst training. I could have sized down in these for an even tighter fit.
Nike Breathe Women's Training Top (plus size, size 3X) - This is a seriously cool top. I am really chuffed to see brands like Nike giving us bigger girls the chance to wear trendy work out gear. I chose the all black colour way but it comes in grey/black & white and I'm seriously digging the boxy, fit of this mesh top.
Nike Dry Versa Training Jacket (plus size, size 3X) Great colour, check. Pockets for all my things, check, loose enough to layer under or over items, check! I love the mesh back panel and I will definitely be wearing this for training as well as chilling out at home!
Nike Air Zoom Dynamic Training Shoe - These babies are super comfy. Cushioned for comfort as well as having a mesh body for improved breathability.
