I call this look "Urban Lightning Flash". We took a trip to the bridge on Boulevard Street in downtown Atlanta, near Edgewood. It was a cool spring day. The temperature was probably about 60-65 degrees. I believe this was a Sunday morning so the area was not congested as it normally is.
This hoodie is from PUMA. It was very comfortable. I've never seen it on any fashion magazine. It either came from Burlington or Ross. I paid about $16 for it. The white tee beneath it is a necessary. If you feel extra confident, you might be able to rock a sports bra underneath.
These came from Eastbay. I've only ordered 2 pairs of Eastbay leggings in my life. They are comfortable to walk around in. Every now and then I'll have to pull them up to keep them on. That part...
These are PUMA Fierce Core Training Shoes. These shoes are very comfortable. I can go walking or I can do my circuit training. They've always given me the balance and support that I've needed.
I just thought they were cute to add. Makes me feel like dancing. I'm cold natured so the little extra layer does make feel a little warmer.

This shoot was my first shoot with a professional photographer. I took this a few years ago but never really did anything with the pictures until now.
I'm rocking my Puma Jitsu Wedge Sneakers. I got them in Black and White too. I don't wear them much because they are just that special.
These fingerless workout gloves are from Reebok. They have breathable mesh material that keeps my hands from sweating too much during a workout. I got them before I sold out to the Puma brand. I don't make it a habit to mix sports brands anymore. I feel like I'm clashing when I do.
It has been so many years ago that I don't remember where I got these tights from. I don't have them anymore because the crotch sagged in the front. This was not cute when I went to workout. And my purpose is to look cute when I workout. So soon after the shoot I tossed them. I had to figure out what works. And when you are 5 feet 2 inches, you are not usually guaranteed the best fit when it comes to exercise tights. I've got 2 strikes- I'm shorter than the average woman, and my booty is out of this world! So the journey to having a cute fitness booty has been a challenge.
A few years ago I purchased my first exercise ball. I loved exercising in the aerobics room with the balls there. I figured if I wanted to work on a few exercises outside of the gym I should get one. And they were not as expensive as I thought. If I can remember, this ball was probably at a discount price. I cannot remember where I got it from.
I decided I needed to dust off some old pictures and get back to posting what I truly love... my fitness fashion. I LOVE wearing Puma brands, but Puma is a bit of a seek-and-find for me. So I'll stumble up on really nice pieces here and there and put it with what ever else I can find. I'm 5'2 with a big ole booty and fitness clothes don't really come in petite sizes. When I find bottoms I hope it stretches to fit from my waist down without the sagging crotch. And when looking at tops, the torso is usually long and bunches up around my waist.
What am I wearing?
These tights from Eastbay are comfy. They are good for walking, but when running or doing other cardio, I do have to pull them up a lot. The hoodie is fun to wear, it is bunched up around the waist because it doesn't appear to be made for a smaller torso. It doesn't look as great when I stretch it over my hips, so I leave it around my waist. And these shoes are super comfortable. I walked around New York City in them and my feet did not hurt at all.
Special thanks to my photographer KRaven Photography.
I've been a lot of places,
