Fitness Chic - Lole Separates & Xootr Kick Scooters

Fitness to Go: Xootrs MG Kick Scooter - fitness to go!
NYC, NY It always perplexes me how people jump in their car and DRIVE to the gym or park for exercise. While I applaud anyone trying to make time for fitness, there's a way to multi-task and squeeze in a bit of a workout most anytime. You may need to think outside of the box but if you live or have visited NYC, you know that the natives have made an art form of doing several things at once. Let's start with getting dressed.

Fitness Wear by Lole of Montreal
Studio Cardigan
I'm really impressed with the clean lines and fit of Lole's new Studio Cardigan shown here in grey. Princess seams and finger loops keep the sleeves down during a sprint and the reflective zipper has a soft guard at the neck for extra comfort. The hood flips up for a shower or extra warmth but the joy of this jacket is in the details. What I really like are the super deep zippered front pockets.

Snuggle up to the buttery softness of this versatile hoodie en route to the Pilates studio, on an early morning run… or just hanging out. It gets it done in LolĂ«’s four-way stretch 2nd Skin Motion Light, a moisture-wicking blend of Supplex® nylon and elastane. • Full zip
• Drawstring at hood
• One zip hand pocket
• Thumbhole at sleeves
• Reflective logo
• Length: 27 ½ in./69 cm 

With these pockets, I'm able to safely stow my cell phone and iPod (for some tunes) for my walk/run. You could easily run to a local exercise class in this cardigan and arrive ready to workout.

Lole Studio Cardigan & Lively Capris.
Lole Lively Capris
I really like the flat lock seams and power stretch going on in these appropriately named Lively Capris! Gorgeous rich blue capris can be scrunched up a bit or pulled down for extra warmth. The wide waistband is genius with a little inside pouch for some cash or plastic. I went running in them today and enjoyed the firm but comfy compression these Lively Capris offer:
No wonder… they’re sleek-fitting and super supportive in our four-way stretch, moisture-wicking 2nd Skin Motion Heavy, a superior blend of Supplex® nylon and elastane. The power mesh lining at the abdomen enhances core alignment and prevents “wobbling.”
• Regular fit
• High rise
• Mesh lined at abdomen for better support
• Secret pocket at waistband
• Lined gusset at crotch
• Flat seams for comfort
• Reflective logo
• Inseam: 20 in./51 cm 

Both pieces are perfect for outdoor and indoor fitness routines while offering the most fashion forward comfort for a variety of moves. See more Lole designs online at LoleWomen.com 

Xootr Adult Kick Scooter
Get your "kicks" on Route 66 or anywhere else you'd like to travel in town. I've seen these kick scooters (some not so "adult") on the NYC Bike Path and they are such a cool way to get some exercise while getting around the city. The Xooter MG is super light - weighing only about 10 lbs and stows away in its own signature Carry Bag. 
Stow your studio mat in the bag & arrive by scooter!

Xootr Features

  • All-magnesium deck for light weight - less than 10lbs total.
  • Lowest deck of all of our kick scooters for efficient kicking.
  • Ultra-low-resistance polyurethane tires for a super-efficient glide.
  • Award-winning industrial design by Lunar Design.
  • Patented sturdy steering and folding system.

Easier to take on the bus or train than a folding bicycle (trust me, I know) you can use it to stow your Pilates mat while riding the scooter to the studio. The Xootr MG easily folds up by way of a large master pin and has a small front hand brake and rear fender brake. No assembly required, it was ready to rock and roll right out of the box. Holds up to 250 lbs so get your boyfriend on it too! See more colors and Xootr models to suit your needs at Xootr.com   

So there's multi-tasking for you! Scooters are SO much fun and an easy way to get a little exercise in your day while helping to save the environment by leaving the car home. Join me on a "low car diet" and get fit this spring!
