Good exercise clothes can help you live a sporting life

WINTER is a great time of year to commit to exercise.

It's too easy to sit around the house, but a far healthier habit is to get out there and go for a walk, a run or go to a yoga class.

I find it motivating to invest in some exercise clothes that you feel and look good in.

For my money (and they are not cheap) Lululemon make the most amazing jackets and leggings.

They are flattering, well made and practical.

But K-Mart and the other local chain stores have come to the party, selling some great, affordable pieces.

Local brands such as Byron Bay's Divine Goddess are also designing fantastic pieces that are ideal for yoga and pilates.

It's also important to get the right shoes.

Athlete's Foot offer a great fitting service, so they are definitely worth a visit. Here's a few selected items available at local stores and online.
