But in the eyes of a fitness devotee, that bright neon, spandex cycling kit looks exceptionally hip.
At first glance, the tights and skirt combo looks fairly normal (although we do not condone the skirt and tight duo). But there's something a bit... off.
Fitness apparel should never revolve around fashion but this look seems to be creeping on the leggings-with-everything craze currently taking over college campuses everywhere.
2. The Nite Beam
It's not like we suggest getting hit by a car or anything, and there are worse alternatives (think running in a yellow construction vest), but we can't get over how goofy they look.
They're created for safety purposes, and we encourage safety. But does safety have to look like a raver?
3. The Old Navy Compression Line
Most fitness apparel starts at $40 and ends somewhere deep in the hundreds. It sucks. Our wallets hate it.
Naturally, we were thrilled to hear that Old Navy launched a new, very affordable, fitness line.
Sadly, it's hideous. How shocking.
Our favorite (most hated) style is in the compression clothing, specifically, the tank top. It looks like a something a middle schooler would wear to her first dance.
For less hideous, even stylish, fitness apparel, head to Road Runner Sports.
