While sportswear of the gym variety isn’t a typical topic on WestmountFashionista, I nevertheless have a tendency of putting as much thought into what I wear to the gym as I put into picking the perfect outfit for dinner. Honestly,  I find that the more I like my workout gear, the more excited I am to go to the gym. I’m totally fine with my sartorial bribery if that’s what it takes to get me on a treadmill and huffing and puffing away at TRX. The girl who could double as a pink highlighter and whose headband and sneakers match, that’s me.

 Bench is a great British brand that has developed into a major player in activewear since first hitting the market in the late 1980s. Starting as a niche t-shirt brand, the line now encompasses men’s, children’s and women’s activewear.The Spring/Summer 2014 collection is meant to embrace an active 24hour lifestyle and is both functional and performance driven.
