I met with Reebok International Trainer Julie Marsland last week to learn about the new Reebok Easytone apparel and took the opportunity to ask her for a few equipment-free exercises that’d maximize working out in the gear (you may recall I featured the apparel and its ResisTone Bands in Holiday Swellness) for a lean, sexy bod.

Do you put on makeup to head to the gym? One PR girl recently guiltily confessed to me that she puts on blush before heading out to exercise.
Now I don’t think you should do your whole face, but I know I need more on my face than just sunscreen to feel presentable to the world, so I usually slick on a soft lip colour.
What’s working for my workouts lately: Smashbox O-Gloss Noir. It goes on black but then reacts to your skin to create a perfect bespoke berry.
Bonus: it’s jam-packed with antioxidants such as Goji Berry-C Complex. Downsides? Gloss can muck up your water bottle spout more than a lip balm does. Oh, and O-Gloss Noir doesn’t have any SPF (but my everyday balm does so I’m covered).
As a side note, as I mentioned I’ve been donning D.J.V. Beautinizer Fiberwig LX daily and have put it through the workout test and it didn’t smudge whatsoever during my oh-s0-sweaty evening runs.
