What I’m Loving in BLUE Fitness Gear – Light it Up for Autism

Let’s see some BLUE fitness gear! Autism Speaks has designated April as “Autism Awareness Month” and encourages everyone to “Light it Up Blue” to shine a light on Autism.  I decided to light this blog post blue with links to some cute, blue fitness gear that has caught my eye.*

What I'm Loving in Fitness Fashion - Light it Up Blue for Autism (Fundraiser) | Simply Fit & Clean


Nike Premier Wristbands   

I  never understood sweat bands until I started running in Houston when it gets warm. OH the Hu-MIDITY.  Sweat bands are awesome for mopping sweat off the face and keeping it from stinging your eyes without having to carry a towel.

Columbia Fusion I2o Half Zip      

We are mostly back to tank tops and shorts down in the American South, but I imagine a lot of the country has spring weather where a wicking half-zip would be perfect for a walk or run.  (Also only $12 on Amazon for a quality brand like Columbia?  Don’t mind if I do.)

Athleta Sweetness Skort

Admission: I love working out in these type of skorts because they are fitted enough for comfort but don’t show so much that I can’t run to the grocery store in my workout clothes after. Athleta is a great brand to find your blue fitness gear. 

adidas Unincorporated Tee      

I can’t help it, I love a man in a well-fitted shirt, especially one by adidas.

Nike Free 4.0 Print (Women)

A minimalist running shoe that is just plain pretty. (Men’s version here.)

Saucony Ride 6 Running Shoes (Men)   

Saucony Ride 6 are a great shoe for distance runners who opt for comfort cushion over minimalist.  (Also available for women.)

Toddler New Balance 420 Sneaker

My daughter got a pair of New Balance sneakers and calls them “my run-so-fast shoes!” Even in kids, new blue fitness gear is a fun excuse to get moving.

Forever 21 Triple Blocked Workout Capris   

I’m kind of feeling dumb I didn’t know Forever 21 made workout clothes.  Time for a trip to the mall to get pants like these (but blue.)

PUMA Archetype Backpack    

Perfect for people like me who prefer a small gym bag that I can keep at my workout station if I need to.

Nike Golf Tech Colorblock Polo    

I love these wicking polos for the summer.  And colorblocked?  Where have I heard that is on trend…?

Polar FT2      

An affordable heart rate monitor good for running, gym work, or at-home workouts. As
