Staying Active During The Holidays Is Tough, Good Training Gear Helps

There are two main reasons I move my body:

  1. The endorphins (a lifeline for my stress/anxiety),
  2. and better sleep (this one could actually have an A-B-C breakdown of how it aids in my ability to run all day with a toddler, immensely improves my digestion, my body is able to recharge with less time actually spent sleeping, and so much more).

But on those days I still need a little extra push out the door? Honestly…good quality gear (that’s cute!) really does motivate me.

Keeping My Workout Goals During The Holidays With Training Gear From adidas

There’s nothing like the holiday season to tempt me to kick my feet up a little longer. 

And while I do totally indulge in extra rest, I’m realizing I can enjoy all the festivities even more if I keep self-care a top priority (it only took me 30-plus years to figure this out, it’s fine).

A new pair of leggings in an extra-festive color of red, bouncy shoes that make me feel like I could keep moving forever, and a cute sweatshirt for warmups and cool-downs are just the kind of things that keep my personal goals exciting during the holidays! Bonus…they’re all on sale up to 60% off during adidas’ End of Year Sale!

High-Quality adidas Leggings In An Extra-Festive Color

If there’s one thing I love to add to my cold-weather running gear this time of year, it’s workout clothes in the color red. The adidas Thebe Magugu Studio ⅞ Leggings in Power Red were an instant “add to cart” when I saw them.

The adidas leggings, created in collaboration with South African designer Thebe Magugu, are made w/ recycled materials.

These adidas leggings, created in collaboration with South African designer Thebe Magugu, are made with recycled materials and feature a Bird of Paradise print that “embodies the freedom, joy and hope we feel when we move our bodies.” Obsessed with that.

Beyond having a powerful message, the leggings are the perfect balance of having high-quality softness while also being compressive enough for intense workouts — a combo that I actually find is hard to ace. I also love that the leggings feel festive in color, but with the added Bird of Paradise design, aren’t too on-the-nose for the season and can easily be worn all year long.

If you’re not into red, these leggings come in a fabulous shade of blue too. 

Fit Notes: TTS, I’m wearing a medium for the perfect comfort fit that holds me in while still being ultra-flattering in the waist.

adidas Makes The Sneakers I Buy Again & Again

I’ve been wearing + loving + preferring adidas training shoes for most of my life now. 

The adidas running shoes support my feet perfectly.

The adidas running shoes support my feet perfectly. If I’m ever feeling like my knee is going to act up or shin splints are trying to come around, I know without a doubt that I can grab a new pair of shoes from adidas and feel strong and confident hitting the pavement again.

My go-to right now are the adidas Edge Lux Shoes (my colorway is currently sold out in most sizes, but there are more to choose from!).

The Edge Lux shoes have this padded back ankle section that’s mind-blowing. The back of my feet have always painfully rubbed against shoes (my literal entire life), so when a shoe takes extra care in protecting that section of my feet, I instantly want to purchase 10 more pairs.  

The sneakers also come with adidas’ famous Bounce midsole that makes for a super-lightweight, flexible sole, almost tricking me into thinking I could run forever.

Fit Notes: I run between sizes 9.5 and 10 in most shoes, and prefer a 9.5 in adidas sneakers.

Top Off Your Winter Workout Outfit With A Cozy Quarter-Zip Sweatshirt

Top off the best shoes and leggings with an adidas quarter-zip sweatshirt — that’s not only good for warmups and cool-downs but is also just begging to be worn all day everyday.

The adidas Future Icons Badge Of Sport Quarter Zip Sweatshirt goes so well with high-waisted leggings.

The Future Icons Badge Of Sport Quarter Zip Sweatshirt goes so well with high-waisted leggings. 

The sweatshirt is loose-fitting and comes with an adjustable bottom hem that I personally love cinching tight for a cocoon look. There’s also a super-soft jersey-like lining on the inside, reminding me of my favorite soft blanket, and huge side pockets that are perfect for warming up winter-chilled hands.

The adidas quarter-zip sweatshirt has a natural loose-fitting shape (my fave) & dropped shoulders to add to the slightly oversized look.

Fit Notes: I almost sized up but ultimately chose to stick with my true size, medium, and I’m so glad I did! The sweatshirt has a natural loose-fitting shape (my fave) and dropped shoulders to add to the slightly oversized look.


And for the extra-chilly days? An iconic beanie.

  1. I just love reading all your articles! I look forward to seeing what the newest topic will be each day.
    Have you done anything related to what to wear in Europe when it isn’t summer? My daughter & I will be traveling to London & Paris in March for her 21st birthday & I would love to see an article pertaining to the weather during that time of year. Thank you!
