Glam Slam: Get Fit, Look Fabulous

We’re just a few weeks into those New Year’s resolutions, so exercise is probably still at the top of your “To-Do” list. But there’s no need to look frumpy while you firm and tone!

Jennifer Aniston, Gwyneth Paltrow, Madonna and Jennifer Lopez all know that looking great when you workout can keep you motivated all year long and Self Magazine Fitness Editor Liz Miersch agrees.

“If you’re looking your best, you’re gonna feel your best when you’re working out,” Liz tells Access.

If you like to get your stretch on like Jennifer Aniston, Liz says proper attire is key.

“Definitely something with a lot of elasticity, you’re gonna be sweating… and you definitely want a fitted legging when your legs are up in the air,” Liz notes. “My favorite gear for yoga is Lululemon.”

But remember, these days you can find affordable yoga wear just about anywhere, including Target!

It’s also important to keep your before and after class plans in mind when suiting up! Liz suggests wearing a jacket and shoes you can easily slide on and off. Also, a headband is a stylish way to keep your hair pulled back while doing downward dog… and, you can keep it on for your plans afterwards!

In the Gym

If you prefer to hit the weights like gym buddies Gwyneth Paltrow and Madonna, Liz suggests getting an extra burst of energy by wearing fun, bright colors. And you no longer have to sacrifice style with your gym bag either. These days you can tote your water bottle and other essentials in bags that come in all different shapes, sizes and colors — even prints!


In September, Jennifer Lopez completed the Nautica Malibu Triathlon in 2 hours, 23 minutes and 38 seconds! If you want to channel your inner J.Lo, with three workouts in one, versatility is very important!

Liz recommends workout wear by Zoot Sports (, since they make apparel specifically geared for triathlons.

“You can jump in the water, you can jump on your bike, you can do your run. And you are going to be totally dry and happy,” she notes.
