Even if you think you look super awkward on the treadmill or in the weight room, you can at least look good while you do it. Olympic Gold Medalist Kristi Yamaguchi just released a new line of active wear that is functional enough for the gym and stylish enough for the carpool lane.
The brand is called Tsu.ya and includes 18 pieces for the fall launch, available exclusively at Lord & Taylor department stores. The line includes basics like yoga pants, leggings, jackets, and T-shirts. Price points for the line range from $40 to $150, which is competitively priced with other fitness apparel lines. The apparel is only available in sizes extra small (XS) through large (L).
“As a mother, author and athlete life is pulling me in a lot of directions at once. I wanted to create something for the woman-on-the go, something that you can go to the gym in and run errands in after and still look put together,” Kristi told us of her inspiration for Tsu.ya.

“I hope I look half that good when I’m her age” is a likely sentiment upon seeing Vera Wang stunning in a one-piece, strapless swimsuit in Harper’s Bazaar this month. At 62, the renowned designer is slender, fit, and the embodiment of health.

Attendees will have an opportunity to skate with Wang.
It’s not clear how often Wang takes to the ice, but even if it’s a moderate hour here and there, ice skating is a serious workout that can burn 500 calories. As well, it’s a great activity for working out the legs, in particular the hamstrings and quads and you’ll also pay some attention to the back and abs.
