Rounding Up 2009: Favourite Workout Brand

Image

Nike is totally Hot and Fit! Love, love, love Nike.

Fitsugar readers picked Nike as the best brand of gear for 2009.

My only wish is that it was not so expensive here (ridiculous to see the price in $ next to the price in Euros and not feel like a fooling for buying it!)

As a matter of fact, here are some Nike items I am coveting at the moment:

Nike + iPod

I’d need a footpod for this babe, but I would really like one of these. I haven’t found the place that would sell it yet, though. If I would, I’d definitely get the Nike + iPod. But no, I wouldn’t run in Nike. I am too faithful to New Balance.

Cold Weather Full Zip Jacket

This is supposed to help me against the cold, however I did do some check and it won’t apply to temperatures lower than 4C/40F…

Women’s Distance Tech Tight

I just want these cause they suit the jacket, I actually have really good tights for this temperature range, although if I wanted to invest in something for the extreme cold I’d pick Asics.

Women’s Thermal Running Glove

I will be getting these. I currently use lovely, pink-y Nike gloves made of fleece or something…They did their job two days ago when the temperatures were around -2C. I haven’t run since (see here) but I know they won’t be able to keep my fingers from freezing…I will be getting a pair of these.

What’s your favourite brand?

  1. I do like some of Nike’s stuff, but it always seems to remind me of the slave/child labor they use, espesh compared to the prices they sell at! Poooh on the “cold weather protection” up to 4C!! Haha. I hope it warms up a little for you soon!

      I did hear about the child labour and the horrible conditions many years ago, but I believed that this situation was not continuing.
      It is interesting to hear that I may very well have been mistaken.
      It is so difficult nowadays, though. I find my conscious struggling even in the grocery store! Should I buy Pepsi after what they did in Burma? Should I buy Chiquita bananas if the company was involved in such corruption in Colombia?
