Recently I’ve been trying to get back into the swing of working out and eating healthier. And it’s no cake walk, you guys! Trust me, if there was cake involved, I would be ALL in. Though I have found that having cute, colorful workout gear helps motivate me to get moving. Imagine that 😉 When I came across the shoe color selection Saucony offers, I was absolutely giddy! I couldn’t decide on just one color, so the whole team got a pair so I could live out my rainbow dreams because they come in the loveliest sherbert colors.
Now don’t be mistaken, I’m taking things slow. Nothing too intense or high impact to begin with, so these shoes are great for my long walks and low impact workouts. Of course, I’ll be wearing them all around town with my dresses too! Not only are they cute, but super comfy!
In addition to the shoes, we rounded up our favorite workout outfits to coordinate with our new, revolutionizing RAINBOW work out. Ha! An easy workout in every shade (and letter!) of the rainbow–P(ink), R(ed), O(orange), Y(ellow), G(reen), B(blue)because it’s always easier to remember when there’s a mnemonic device and we’re clearly fans of a rainbow. Plus, who doesn’t want to match their shoes to their scrunchie?
If you’re in need of some motivation to get moving, take a look at the shoes, gear and a few moves we’re trying!
We’re not professionals by any means, just big fans of athleisure! Here is a quick “Rainbow Workout” you can try out at home. Feel free to go through the whole thing 2-3 times! We strongly recommend color-coordinated outfits and these Saucony shoes to boost your mood and maybe even burn more calories 😉 If only! Enjoy!
