Get Active!

So, we’re two months into the new school year, Thanksgiving is behind us (and based on the amount of pumpkin cheesecake I ate I mean that quite literally), and a long cold winter lies ahead. It’s an easy time to think about curling up by a fire or a television and hibernating for months.

But have you noticed what happens to hibernating bears?…they come out in the springtime looking droopy, lazy, hairy, and definitely not bikini worthy. Don’t be a bear…make it your priority to stay active throughout these dreary months so that you emerge a little less ursine.
This is a great time to try out a new activity. These are perfect days for getting out for a run and hitting some trails. Find a community centre and try out a new class…have you always wanted to master yoga, pilates, zumba or spinning? This lull between the summer activities and the holiday season calendar cram is a perfect opportunity.
For me, there is no better motivating force than new clothes. Old Navy has recently introduced a new line, Active by Old Navy. Made of quality cotton, spandex and compression fabrics, pieces start at $16.50 and are available at stores across Canada or online. These pieces are much higher quality and include many more features than the low prices indicate.
Compression Tank Black $26.94 copy.jpg
The compression tank includes reflective materials and a zippered pocket (perfect for keys or gym cards). It retails for $26.94 and comes in a variety of colours and patterns.
ON Active Compression Pants $34.94.jpg
The compression pants offer the same zippered pocket in the back yoke, pique mesh at back of knees for movement and breathability, and a stylish cut, all for $34.94.
Compression Jacket Turquoise $4494 copy.jpg
Throw on this compression jacket with thumb loops, flat-lock seams and a zipper from the hem to the chin. It’s only $44.94 and it will take you easily from the gym to the schoolyard to the grocery store, looking good and feeling great.
Are you looking for more motivation? How about a great giveaway from Old Navy for your own Active by Old Navy outfit, including compression tank, running pants and running jacket? The prize is valued at $150 and can be yours, just for leaving a comment below on how you’ll stay active this winter.
In the interest of full disclosure, Trend Watch is written by me; all opinions are my own. It is not sponsored. I was given Active by Old Navy tank and pants for review, but I was not compensated for my review.
