Though they may call it the Freshman 15, food is irresistible every year at college. Between the stir-fry, chocolate chip cookies and occasional pasta toss, eating healthy isn’t always the easiest task. At Bing, our most sinful meals tend to take place at the Night Owl, where cheese quesadillas and curly fries are served in excess. But, what can we say? Studying so many hours really works up an appetite, right? To burn off the calories from these days of indulgence we hit up the gym like it’s our job.
The newly renovated fitness center is equipped with everything from treadmills to free-weight stations and even multipurpose rooms for specialized classes. Despite the constant snowfall, students from all ends of campus trek over on the daily for a demanding workout. With so many people coming and going, you’re guaranteed to recognize a handful of faces as you exercise. So, instead of hiding under a baggy T-shirt and drawstring sweats, dress in trendy athletic gear, motivating yourself to keep in shape and look your best.
This Fashionista’s outfit does just that. Her fitted black racerback tank by Champion is not only flattering but also made with a breathable fabric and built-in bra for extra support. She wears sporty shorts from the Victoria’s Secret PINK line that feature mesh paneling for an airy feel. Their bright colors and “Love Pink” detailing down the sides make the ensemble girly and fun. For footwear, this Fashionista boasts a pair of Nike training sneakers with a flexible structure perfect for an hour on the elliptical. And, to stay hydrated and eco-friendly, she carries around a stainless steel water bottle with a glossy finish, the ultimate fitness accessory.
One Simple Change: If you’re not a fan of shorts during the winter, try these GapFit leggings with innovative stretch material and eye-catching color contrast. Then, put on headphones, switch to your favorite Pandora station and prepare for your best work out yet.
