Looking good and feeling good go hand in hand – especially when it comes to working out. Yet we still believe we need to sacrifice style for comfort, comfort for style, or dish out a small fraction of our savings to get the best of both worlds. Enter Fabletics, co-founded by superstar mom, athlete, and designer Ginger Ressler and actress extraordinaire Kate Hudson, that’s providing one of our favorite fitnesswear solutions yet. Fabletics is subscription-based and suggests gear to go with your unique profile – so whether you’re running, hiking, lifting, yoga-posing, or just bopping around town, you’re ready for action.
As Fabletics’ Chief Stylist, Ginger is passionate about creating fitnesswear that’s right for everybody and every body. Ginger is an fitness-lover to the core, having developed a passion for running at an early age, which then led her to compete as a Division I Track athlete in college as well as graduating with a degree in Kinesiology. After years of teaching physical education classes and modeling for top fitness brands (while simultaneously raising three young, sports-loving boys; NBD!), Ginger has a keen sense for what’s needed in great fitnesswear. Fitnesswear pieces need to roll with the punches, function at a high level and keep a girl looking great. Together with Kate, Ginger rolled all her experience, passion and great taste into Fabletics. Their line of comfortable, cute, functional and affordable clothes cater to the day-to-day life of active women perfectly.
Whether you’re a Crossfit champ, a mom on the go, a weekend warrior, or yoga fiend, Fabletics has got a little something for every woman. Take a peek into Ginger’s gym bag and steal a few tips from her tried-and-true fitness routine to get you feeling fab.
Moment I fell in love with fitness:
The moment my feet hit the floor – it’s always been in my DNA. Fitness is my passion and something that’s a part of my everyday life.
Functional circuit training because it burns the most calories and you’re working multiple body parts at once.
Favorite activewear staples:
The Eureka top from Fabletics is one of my favorite items to wear because it accentuates your figure and shows the definition in your arms even though you’re covered up. I also love our Rio Run capri.
Favorite fitness footwear:
Nike Flyknits. They are super lightweight and it feels like you’re walking on air.
I stay inspired by…
Top female athletes like Dara Torres and Clutch athlete Angi Greene. I know how much work it takes to get to that level and, as a mom, I respect them for the hard work and the balancing act they have to do as mothers and athletes.
Favorite hair accessories:
I always wear a headband and a good hair tie when working out.
My three sons! My iPhone 6 Plus also keeps me on schedule. I love my Beats headphones for listening to tunes.
On my workout playlist…
It’s an eclectic mix. I have everything from old school jams by RunDMC and Stone Temple Pilots to Ed Sheeran to Beyonce to country music!
Most unexpected item in my gym bag:
A box of Chewy SweeTarts!
Favorite way to hydrate:
I have been drinking AQUAhydrate for years – it’s my favorite water.
Favorite post-workout fuel:
A Pressed Juicery Greens 1 with a chicken breast and veggies.
Fave quickie workout:
There’s no such thing as a quickie workout for me! I prioritize and always make sure I can get in a full workout.
Healthiest daily habit:
Giving the most love I can give to my husband and kids and making sure we all laugh.
Personal fitness tip:
Consistency is key to maintaining a successful fitness regimen.
If you’re not going to give 100%, why do it? Make it count!
Going to have to look into this for my girlfriend for Christmas.
