It’s so important to keep on top of our health and fitness, especially in our busy and slightly – ok, very – chaotic city! That’s why we’re always on the look out for the latest and greatest workout gear to keep us feeling comfortable and looking stylish. So when we heard that Hu-nu Activewear had a new collection, we snapped up the chance to check it out. And who knew you could look so good while you worked out? We love the innovative styles and comfortable, high-performance material, so much so that we got some of our fabulous and inspirational That Girls to try on their favourites! Callie, Charlotte, Claudia and Dervla also share their workout tips and fitness regimes with us for an extra bit of fitspiration! Check them out below…
Calista Goh, Founder of Anything But Salads
Callie is wearing the Twisted Bamboo Tunic with a very Sassy Woo-hoo Ruffle Skort. The gorgeous white tunic perfectly suits Callie’s laid back style, and the adjustable hem with cord allows her to wear it as tight or loose as she wants… this piece could even be worn as a dress over leggings! The Woo-hoo Ruffle Skort is flirty, fun and easy to move in thanks to the built-in Revolutional Slim shorts. We love the zipper pocket on the outer waistband, perfect for storing valuables as you workout.
Fitness Tips: Callie is a fan of functional training (which uses your own body weight), tabata and cardio, which she does three times a week to stay fit. She loves yoga, which she sees as a form of moving meditation, and in addition is a trained professional dancer! Whether it’s contemporary, jazz or hip hop, Callie loves to dance as a form of working out… she’s recently even taken up pole dancing to build on her strength! You’ll also find her walking her precious puppy up The Peak on the morning trail nearly every day, and of course, Callie always makes sure she eats right (check out her amazing store, Anything But Salads).
Charlotte Hwang, Co-Founder of The9theMuse
Char is sporting the Julia Tank, a fail-safe piece that you can wear anytime, anywhere. This plain black tank can go with any other workout gear and can easily transfer from the gym to the dinner table if you throw a jacket over the top. The double spaghetti straps are great for support and we love the racer back, which is perfect if you want to move your back and shoulders. Char also wears the very practical and comfortable Action Capri in black, made of premium Italian fabric. It also has UPF 50+ protection… a must-have outfit!
Fitness Tips: Char is a big fan of spinning, and regularly attends classes at Torq. She also has her own personal training sessions with Eugene at Fitness Compass, which includes corrective weight training burpee challenges and TRX! To unwind and stretch out her muscles, she uses her yoga package at Mandarin Oriental, which is a great way to balance out her fitness regime. She practices mindfulness and meditation too, and on the weekends you’ll find Char in Shek O walking her dog!
Claudia Whitney, Yoga Instructor
Claudia is of course a yoga expert, so this gorgeous Ava Tank is perfect as it allows her to stretch and move freely. The soft material and pretty raindrop opening on the back make this fun top a great addition to anyone’s workout wardrobe. Claudia also tried on the Removable Skirt Pants, which comes in two different skirt colour options, another example of Hu-nu’s versatility. This 2-in-1 design is great if you can’t decide what to wear… we love an outfit that doubles up!
Fitness Tips: Of course, yoga is Claudia’s number one way to stay physically fit – her favourite form? Vinyasa flow yoga! She does yoga at least six times a week, and loves how she gets to move with her job by teaching yoga to students, which she does three to four times a day. Claudia is always a fan of meditating for her mental fitness, and for spiritual fitness she spends time with her husband and adorable baby. You’ll often find her on a city hike with her 25 pound little one strapped to her, which is a workout in itself! She likes to involve her family in her fitness regime, practicing acroyoga with her husband at Yoga Bam Bam and even dabbling in baby yoga!
Dervla Louli, Managing Editor of Sassy Media Group
Dervla always looks great in workout gear, and this Amanda Tank looks oh so chic on her! We love the stylish cowl neck and tunic length, which make it the ideal pre and post work out top. The jersey-like top is comfortable and practical, using soft, Coolmax material that will keep you cool and dry after you sweat it out! She wears a version of the Action Capri in a bright and cheerful Aqua colour, perfect for adding a pop of fun to your workout.
Fitness Tips: Dervla likes mixing up her fitness routine regularly so she doesn’t get bored. It includes running on Bowen Road, hiking the twins and spinning at Pure Fitness, XYZ and Torq to get her cardio fix three times a week. For strength training, she does CrossFit and Muay Thai at Epic MMA, and if she really wants a gruelling workout, her PT Darrel at Epic knows how to kick her ass! She also makes sure to drink lots of water and takes Sunwarrior vegan protein powder too.
