You take Zumba or Crossfit and you sure ass hell lift! You know how I know? It says it on your leggings, your tank, and most likely every gym accessory you own! You found your one true workout love and you don't care who knows it. You may not have been big on fitness before you met your ideal workout, but now that you have you can be found at the gym every chance you get. Your free time is spent following all the biggest fitness stars on instagram and twitter. You've got a one track mind and when you decide to achieve something you won't rest till get it! You are known for your determination, loyalty, and enthusiasm. No one could ever accuse you of being a Debbie Downer! You can often be found spreading your fitness gospel and encouraging your friends and family to join you in your workout lifestyle.

Matchy Matchy

You lay out your workout gear the night before, making sure your on-trend sport bra perfectly matches your figure flattering capris. You take pride in finding complementary accessories, like sneakers or your gym bag. If we were to open your dresser, we'd find your workout wear laid out in rainbow order. You may not be an athlete, but you'll make damn sure you look like one! You have a classic Type-A personality. You always dress for success and know how to make a lasting first impression. You love to plan ahead and have your day scheduled to last minute. When you aren't busy in your high-stress job you can be found relaxing with a glass of white wine making your latest Pinterest board. Even when you are relaxing, you are planning ahead!

Neon, Prints, and Oversized Crop Tops


Your closet is filled with aztec print legging and perfectly slouchy crop tops that allow for your neon sport bra to peek through. Your workout wear often doubles for regular street clothes and you look fab in both settings. You've got an eye for fashion and can mix prints like no one else! You most likely get your sweat on in fusion dance classes, but you'll try anything once as long as the music has got a good beat. You are irreverent, cheerful, and the life of the party. When you aren't busy learning to twerk you can be found pursuing a myriad of creative endeavors. And while you aren't afraid to stand out in a crowd, you prefer to surround yourself with like-minded friends and achieve your goals together.

Latest in Workout Tech Gear


If you are going to workout, you are going to do it right! Every workout wear purchase you make has been heavily research and vetted. You believe in function over form and if your gear isn't working for you then it has no place in your life. You wouldn't be caught dead running without your Fitbit tracking your every step and calorie burned. And while your Iphone is filled with tons of fitness apps you are easily distracted by the newest, shiniest toy on the block. You are tech-savvy and love to multitask! While taking on the elliptical, you'll be listening to your favorite podcast and answering emails. You prefer to take on projects by yourself since few people can live up to your high standards. You are smart, driven, and always ready to take on a challenge!

The "I Just Rolled Out of Bed" Look


Most days you are just thankful to have found a clean outfit before you had to run to gym, so you sure as hell don't have time to care what it looks like. You might double a swimsuit top as a sports bra or rock your faded band camp tee, but you are putting in the effort to be healthy and that should be commended. See you've got kids, or school, or an all consuming work schedule and no time to care what others think. You are caring, supportive, and always willing to help out a friend. That might be why you have often got a million things on your plate, but you wouldn't have it any other way. Working out is your ""me time"", it is one of the only times in the day where it is all about you and your body. So while it might be hard to get your booty to class you love every minute you are there!

I happen to rock the "I just rolled out of bed" look when I am spinning around the pole, what about you? Share what your workout look is and lets us know if we got it right!
