FORGET #NETFLIXANDCHILL, INSTEAD WORK-OUT AND CHILL WITH SKECHERS CANADA
Oh things have definitely started going down south on our side of the globe. And with south, I meant the weather. Stunning colours from the changing of the leaves also come with a sharp dip in temperature. The chilly autumn days make it tempting to curl up in a sofa with a pumpkin spice latte in hand. Or, as kids say these days, just stay home to #Netflixandchill.
A few weeks ago I was running outside crossing the borders between Ontario and Quebec. Fast forward to now, I cringe at the thought of stepping outside to head to the gym to teach or to work-out. And that’s indoors! I’ve found one of the ways to motivate me to keep my fitness routine during this season is to wear great looking work-out clothes! It’s absolutely true when they say when you look good, you feel good. In fact, there are studies that show that people who wear proper fitness apparel tends to work out more efficiently than those who dress with their ragged, old, baggy sweatpants and sweatshirts.
SKECHERS CANADA CARRIES SKECHERS PERFORMANCE APPAREL: FITNESS WITH STYLE AND COMFORT
But then you’ll say, why would I pay an arm and a leg to just sweat on these pretty clothes. I hear you, I used to do that too. Unless I’m teaching Yoga or Group Fitness Classes, I wear my rattiest, frumpiest work-out clothes to the gym. Fortunately, looks like Fairy Godmother is listening! I recently discovered that one of my favourite shoe brands, SKECHERS CANADA, carries fitness apparel for men and women!
YOU CAN NOW SHOP AT THE SKECHERS CANADA STORE IN CF RIDEAU CENTRE
And how did I know? Because SKECHERS CANADA finally has a brick and mortar store right at the heart of downtown Ottawa. And bless be the Fairy Godmother because the new SKECHERS and SKECHERS PERFORMANCE store is in newly renovated CF Rideau Centre! Looks like the work-out Gods have been listening to me!
While I’ll tell you more about actual SKECHERS CANADA store in the CF Rideau Centre later (here’s a virtual tour of the SKECHERS CANADA store in Ottawa and its wonderful, knowledgeable and helpful staff via Facebook if you just can’t wait and I can’t blame you!), let me tell you about these SKECHERS PERFORMANCE Apparel.
As you can see aesthetically, the SKECHERS PERFORMANCE Apparel is the BOMB! The pieces are so well-designed and the colours so appropriate for the season. As it is fall, they presently have rich burgundies, forest greens, pumpkin oranges, deep blues – colours that matches beautifully with your current cold season wardrobe. As a matter of fact, I’ve been using SKECHERS work-out clothes to mix and match with my outfit.
SKECHERS CANADA STORE AT CF RIDEAU CENTRE CARRIES SKECHERS PERFOMANCE APPAREL
Made with Active Stretch fabric for maximum range of motion, the SKECHERS CANADA top, leggings and windbreaker are so comfortable, it’s like the fabric is your second skin. Most of the fitness apparel is made with moisture management fabric, which wicks away moisture. In other words, sweat does not stick to you in this fabric.
The SKECHERS Apparel Scout Tank Top. Nylon, Poly and Spandex blend fabric in a cross back active tank top with Active Stretch fabric and Moisture Management design. There’s a built in shelf bra with removable bra cups as well as mesh liner and detailed fashion cutout on the back that adds enhanced breatheability. The top features flatlock seams reduce irritation.

Just look at the stunning details of these items. There’s a reflective silver Skechers Performance heat transfer logo on the side towards the hip that’s subtle and not in your face kind of branding. This top has a beautiful ikat pattern panel on back grants bold colorblocking and I’m particularly in love with the back cut that I got it in two different colour combinations! (Available from XS to XXL.)
The SKECHERS Apparel GO Shield Jacket is water resistant and is made of 100% Polyester, 100% PU with Ceramic Print Back blend fabric. It has the same active stretch fabric that provides maximum range of motion. I love the five pockets, including a zipper chest pocket, two hand pockets, and two velcro pockets with a top flap. I carry a whole of ‘stuff’ everywhere I go!
Unlike mostly non-shape jackets of this kind, the SKECHERS Apparel GO Shield Jacket has adjustable hem for different levels of snugness and there’s shirring at the back that provides the slim feminine shape. There’s also a media port in right hand pocket and media loop near collar to keep your headphones inside your jacket and prevent dangling and tangling – a BIG bonus! Plus, the mock neck collar helps keep your neck warm. Like all its apparel, there’s a reflective silver Skechers Performance and Skechers GOSHIELD heat transfer logos. (Available from XS to XXL.)
Now, for the The SKECHERS Apparel – Lamb Leggings, which is starting to become my top favourite leggins… It is a Nylon, Poly and Spandex blend fabric in a performance fitted legging pant design with Active Stretch fabric for maximum all day comfort. Like the two tops, it has moisture management fabric wicks moisture away from the skin to the garment’s outer surface. It has hidden pocket in waistband, perfect for storing your keys while you work out and it has tapered gusset helps avoid ride-up, which as you know, is definitely a HUGE help! (Available from XS to XL.)
This particular SKECHERS outfit combination is fantastic for yoga, running, hiking, working out and of course, brunch with friends! I’ve worn them to all of these activities.
