From Fit to Fashion
Featuring Gaiam fashions from

One of the hardest parts of working out is simply finding the time in our busy days.  And often, that means that we combine our workout with a list of errands or places to go after the workout is done. 

And, I have to admit, I’ve been guilty of more than one trip to the grocery or trip to school to pick up my son looking – well- like I came right from the gym.  Not that it’s always bad – but sometimes you just want to step it up a notch, because you just know it’s when your going to run into that important client or long-lost friend.

I found a solution!  Gaiam!

Gaiam is a collection of lifestyle products that promote a healthy lifestyle - from Yoga workout gear to clothing and more. And featured right along with a huge collection of yoga pants and workout wear are some great solutions to the “what do I wear, after my workout?” question.

Gaiam sent me a sampling of items that can easily be the key transitional pieces that take your look from “Fit to Fashion.”  The clothing is designed to fit a woman’s body, the fabrics are deliciously soft and Gaiam has a real commitment to sustainability and a respect for fair trade practices.

Plus, personally I loved seeing models in a wide range of ages as a part of their catalog.  It was refreshing to see someone who looked like my age showing an outfit.

Take a look at Gaiam online at and consider requesting a catalog.

Here’s a listing of the items featured in the segment.  They can be found in the Gaiam Fall 2012 Catalog and at
