Let’s HIIT It: Zella Has Everything I Want For Working Out!

I am a total gym junkie. I have lived a very active lifestyle since I was a tiny tot and that has carried over into my adult life, too. I am a huge fan of group fitness, and ever since the pandemic hit, I’ve missed my workout classes! And I’ve personally found working out at home to be a challenge.

After a few months in, I discovered that creating my own workout routines on TikTok and Instagram renewed that sense of community I was missing. And again, I found myself inspired by others. Not to mention, I got a real desire to up my athletic wear game. I have an extensive wardrobe of workout wear and love that feeling you get when you’re wearing an epic outfit for your workouts.

Let’s HIIT It! Zella Activewear Is All I Need To Workout At Home

I love a good High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) session and they are one of my current favorites to do at home! If I’m not outside, I personally do half of my HIIT workouts in my garage and love that they are short, sweet and very sweaty. When I am doing a HIIT session, the two most important things to me are that my leggings stay in place and my sports bra does its job!

Zella Tie Dye Sports Bra & High-Waisted Leggings Are Perfect Workout Wear

And I have to say that Zella’s studio lite high waisted leggings and live in racerback bra don’t disappoint! I was impressed with these leggings because they are ultra high-waisted and the sports bra is double-lined with two layers to keep everything in place! These 7/8 length leggings still run slightly longer than my 5’2″ legs need, so they look more like a full-length legging on me. I absolutely love the stretch of these, and they have side pockets for your phone! This combo of workout wear is perfect for my HIIT and everyday exercise needs.

This Cozy Wrap Jacket For Post-Workout Layers

Once your workout is done, throw on this Zella Amazing Cozy Wrap Jacket. It’s super-warm and the perfect layer for any post-workout shenanigans! It feels like you are wearing a cozy blanket and it’s great to pop over any of your workout outfits and for lounging too. I love the oversized fit and the quick ease of the buttons.

Zella Live In Pocket Joggers: The Perfect Joggers For Cold Weather

Um okay, I am beyond surprised by the Zella Live In Pocket Jogger. They are super lightweight and breathable, but also beyond warm! (I am talking walking my pup Mia in 20-degree weather warm!) These are the perfect joggers for cold weather and would make great playground pants, too. The drawstring is visible at night, and they have several pockets for storing keys and any other things you might need. These might just be my favorite joggers ever!

Last but definitely not least, I want to mention that this Zella Ridge pullover is also super-warm, and the ribbed detail and unique collar are so fun. I am wearing an XL in this pullover, and it comes in a ton of color options. This entire outfit is perfect for my daily walks with Mia — now I have the perfect go-to outfit for cold weather that is both cute and keeps me cozy!

  1. YouTube is my workout go-to, it’s been a lifesaver! I subscribe to 5-6 trainers, so I mix it up all week. I used to run outside 1-2x/week but it’s gotten too cold and sloppy outside (midwest here). I’ve definitely been buying more workout apparel this year, so thanks for the tip on Zella!

    • That’s so fun! I love YouTube too! I’ve been making my own workouts on my channel and also love 305 Fitness they have great dance workouts on their YouTube channel.

  2. I signed up for an app called “sweat” that takes me through each 30-second exercise. I like it! Anyway, do you find the Studio Lite legging to be thinner than the live-in leggings by Zella? I used to get the live-in, but a few years ago they switched the fabric and now I find it very thick and compressing. It also falls down when I walk, which is annoying.

  3. I can answer your question, Joy! On the Riverwalk in Chicago (on the north side of it, by Wabash and also State, I think).
    I really love that bra top, Kat! It’s beautiful!!
    As for workouts, a week into quarantine in March, I took up running again, mostly for alone time—and to see flowers and get outside. Now it’s a part of my life. It’s been wonderful to get stronger and have that time every other AM.

    • That’s amazing Jennifer! I have always been envious of this who love running. It’s never been my thing but I love being outside!
