But then a little thing called college happened. Over the past three years, I have been so focused on schoolwork, this blog, and work/internships (especially those that will try to benefit my hopeful future career in radio), so fitness often gets pushed to the back-burner of my life. I do try to make some small healthy decisions each day: such as this past year when I lived on the fourth floor of a dorm building, I tried to take the stairs as much as possible instead of the elevator. But still, I know that I really need to get back into a regular fitness routine this year!
That's why I was so excited that Charlotte's brand new premier store for fitness apparel, The Track&Field Store, reached out to me about working together this fall! I honestly think that this was just the motivation that I needed to get excited about fitness for when I go back to school- sometimes things happen at just the right time. ;-)
The Track&Field Store is Brazil's largest fitness and lifestyle brand of apparel. They are just starting to expand into the United States, and Charlotte is the home to their third (and brand new!) US store. The Charlotte location of The Track&Field Store opened in May, and is located in Charlotte's luxury mall, SouthPark Mall (one of my favorite places to shop when I am in the Queen City!). Ron and Silvia Skufca, co-owners of the The Track&Field Store's Charlotte location, said that "We know that residents in Charlotte and the surrounding area lead active lives, and look for high-quality products that fuse fashion and function together, which makes the brand a perfect fit for this region." I couldn't agree with that more!
I will be doing a fitness style collaboration and visiting the Charlotte location of The Track&Field Store once I am back down South in a couple of months. Until then, I encourage any of my Charlotte readers to go and check out the new store!
What types of activities do you enjoy doing to stay fit? I am hoping this Fall to start going to some of the dance based workout classes that my school's gym offers, and to also start power walking more often on the treadmill in the gym as well (running and me don't mix ;-) ).
