Rain or shine, the weather sometimes deters what little motivation you might have to work out. Naturally, the weather also can dictate what you wear. A good rule of thumb is to not let inclement conditions negatively affect your workout or your outfit.
This Fashionista is aptly prepared for both her workout and the rainy day. Her black Hunter wellies are a staple item and keep both her gym shoes and feet warm and dry. Wearing a separate set of shoes to the gym is a smart way to preserve the quality of both your shoes and the gym itself. Throw on a lightweight, moisture-wicking jacket to keep you dry and comfortable pre and post-workout.

Favorite Type of Workout: Zumba classes.
Favorite Food: Italian, but I have a huge sweet tooth!
CollegeFashionista: Where do you usually go to buy workout clothes?
Allison Gair: I love going to a place back home in Georgia called All Sports. They really know what they are talking about and are extremely helpful, plus it’s always great to support local businesses.
CF: What is your go-to workout look?
AG: Whether it’s my sports bras or my sneakers, I love to work out in bright colors.
CF: How many times per week do you go to the gym?
AG: I attempt to go about four times a week.
CF: Do you have a set workout routine or does it vary day to day?
AG: It usually varies. When I’m in the gym I like to run and lift weights, but I also like to go to the pool because swimming is both fun and good exercise.
CF: How do you reward yourself after a long workout?
AG: Right after my workout, I love to drink a large, lime Gatorade. Sometimes after an extremely hard workout I'll reward myself with sweets later in the day.
