Did you know I was a swimmer for the better part of my life? From age 5 to 21 I swam competitively and ever since I stopped, it’s been hard to find a healthy fitness routine.
I tried personal trainers who were too expensive, I tried trendy gym classes that I just couldn’t get into, and most recently I tried Crossfit which I loved but was too hard on my body. After a Crossfit knee injury, I’m slowly but surely getting back into the swing of things with PT and smaller, shorter workouts which is taking a lot of getting used to. It’s been an incredibly frustrating process and one that has crushed most of my motivation.
I’ve always performed better – at work, in life, during workouts – when I look and feel my best. That’s where my new favorite fitness clothing store comes in: Chelsea Collective is a local shop in Tysons that carries brands like NIKE, CALIA by Carrie Underwood and more niche brands including Lorna Jane, Spiritual Gangster and ALALA. They’re your one stop shop for all things fitness since they also carry footwear and a curated assortment of accessories and beauty supplies to take you to and from a workout seamlessly which I’ve found is a super important part of being a 9-5 government employee with a fashion blog to maintain, a dog to keep alive, friendships to maintain and bills to pay. Adulting is hard. Finding the right workout gear that fits perfectly into your life shouldn’t have to be.
I would love to introduce you guys to this fitness lifestyle brand I can’t get enough of which is why I’m super excited to invite you to a Holiday Sneak Peek Styling Event at Chelsea Collective in Tysons Corner Center! On Thursday, November 3rd, I will be offering FREE 20-minutes styling sessions from 7 to 9 PM at the Tysons store. Space is limited, so please register here.

Sounds fun! But what exactly are these “styling sessions” and why do I need one? Your free session is designed to provide you with outfit ideas that will support your active lifestyle while staying true to your personal style. Get tips and tricks to help you look your best! Don’t forget to book your appointment.

I got a huge boost in motivation once I had the right workout gear. It might sound silly, but it all goes back to looking my best and feeling my best so that I can perform at my best. At Chelsea Collective, I’m able to easily find the pieces I need to make me feel strong and ready to get back to where I was, physically, 5 years ago. The carefully curated clothing and accessories (my favorite part!) are worth a once over if you’re looking for a little motivation to get back into the swing of things, like me. I hope to see you guys tomorrow night!
