New Gym Wear by @NextOfficial

Happy Friday readers! For this weeks Friday fashion post, I just had to share my new gym wear by @NextOfficial, Its all high-quality, beautiful, and completely affordable.

Now, I’d love to claim otherwise, but on a day to day basis, I’m pretty much the least glamourous person on the planet, and prefer to just chuck on my gym clothes first thing in the morning when I get up at 6.30am, just so that I’m good-to-go whenever the gym or run window presents itself throughout my day of working from home. And if it doesn’t present itself? Well I just steel it anyway before the kids finish school. Nothing comes between me and my exercise time.

I’m serious. Nothing.

(Well, ok, maybe some stuff occasionally does, but I try to keep this as my daily mantra as best I can, and most of the time it works out.)

I’m a mum of 4, so sure, most of my existence is about keeping others happy, fed, watered, Hot chocolated, delivered to their destination (preferably on time), Educated and up to date with homework and those Biff, Chip and Kipper books*, entertained sufficiently, clean etcetera etcetera. This is all absolutely fine of course. It’s rewarding and exactly how I like it; those 4 small to medium sized kids make my world a funny, bright, and super enlightened place all in all. But for one hour everyday, I take what’s mine: And that’s the de-stressing gift of fitness and health. And for this, I feel ZERO GUILT!!!

Anywho, thanks to one of my favourite fitness Instagrammers and Bloggers (@carlyrowena), I was introduced to the NX Sportswear range by Next, and I thought, ‘Well, if it’s good enough for Carly’ …

… God, I’m an advertisers dream.

So I ordered a few bits, Including a good high-impact bra (Which is now my favourite high-impact bra), a pull-on white rain jacket (For my drizzly runs whilst training for #ToughMudder in May) two pairs of leggings, and two tops.

What d’you think?

 Graphic White Vest with Mesh

Technical Print Full-Length Leggings with Mesh

Lightweight Sheer Overhead Jacket

Print Technical Full Length Leggings

Pink Long Sleeved Technical Top

So, what do you think? Anything here take your fancy ladies? Obviously if bold print isn’t for you, then they do plain versions too.

I have to say – I’m mega impressed with the quality and fit of all of these items and I would definitely put these leggings on par with Swetty Betty’s run/compression leggings which I already have (and cost more than double the price of these Next ones!) Also, these leggings don’t fall down whilst you’re running so no need to yank them up unlike some of my Nike ones. Which leads me on to wonder – when did Next get so good at this stuff?!

Do let me know in the comments box below what you think, and if you already have some of thier workout range.  Thank you so much for reading,

*Seriously, How am I the same age as the Dad from the Biff, Chip and Kipper books??

Do you invest in good gym gear? or, maybe you are toying with the idea of joining a gym?? … if so – DO IT! Now’s a great time of year to join as most gyms are running special offers. Personally, I love seeing all the new faces at the gym in January. Its like a nice fresh influx of new blood and brings with it such an air of energy.

Oooh, Oooooh, Ooooooh …. before I go guys  ….  I must just tell you that next month, we are going to be turning #FridayStylefinder post on ZmG into a fashion linky! This means that ALL bloggers will be able to join in with the Friday Fashion fun, joining forces and sharing the style ideas and news. How blimmin’ exciting!  Be sure to look out for that, and if you’re a fellow blogger, then be ready to come and link up 🙂

    I am definitely going to be buying a pair of these amazing leggings and hopefully they will:
    1. Inspire me to exercise more
    2. Make my legs and bum look the size of yours
    3. Not draw attention to the fact my bum is not the size of yours, but twice the size!!!

    Nice athleisure find. Another newfound gem is Victoria Secret Sport. Check it out.
    Side note: after a brief hiatus Biff, Chip, Kipper and that cheeky Floppy are causing all sorts of mischief in our household once more. Happy phonetic-err- ing!

    I absolutely love those leggings – I’m a huge fan of all the bold prints that Sweaty Betty have lately and these sound just as good. I’ve fallen off the exercise wagon lately, but I’m hoping to get back into running later this year. I might buy these in preparation to give me a bit of motivation!

    The whole outfit looks super comfortable! I wouldn’t really think of Next for this kind of thing
