Active Wear You Need To Know About

Anokhi DIY Culture & Lifestyle Fitness & Nutrition Dec 14, 2013

Make working up a sweat look better than ever!

It takes something extra to get us pumped up for that new you, new year's resolution mode where workout is involved. Guilt from that last piece of cake is a strong incentive, but looking as good at the gym as you would in the street works better. Instead of wearing a grubby college T-shirt and a pair of sweats that should have definitely made their way into the “burn on sight” pile, treat yourself to some fun, fashion forward workout wear. You’ll notice you'll be getting so much use out of the new sexy yoga pants that your little black dress will start collecting dust. 

Titika Fitness

This Canada-based company creates active wear for women that isn’t only tailored for feminine style; their fabric and production aim to be as globally responsible and eco-friendly as possible. What they lack in diverse selection, they make up in quality, such as the use of 100% natural fabrics like Modal, Tencel, Cotton and Cupro. If you want to support an environmentally conscientious business while prepping for your next marathon, then you know where to get your next athletic outfit from.
