Urban Slings


"Every accomplishment comes with the decision to try."


This was something that I’ve came across on tumblr and reblogged almost a thousand of times, and it all started with following a single fitblr, that led me to following the next, and the next… And then #fitgirls on instagram, one after another. If you’ve followed me for quite a while now, you would have realized that I’ve been into fitness, or have been a fitness enthusiast almost 4 years ago (I was Year 1 in Uni then) but never really took the progress seriously.

It all happened one day when I’ve decided to stitch a before (end 2012) and after (early 2013) picture together as a New Year Resolution. We’ve all got to start somewhere, right? 2011 was horrible. But that was also when I thought I was capable of paying off a gym membership at True Fitness with Fang, and got introduced to Les Mills and Spinning classes. It was then that changed the way I worked out, and more when Instagram started its instavideo function. Hurray.

It was then when I started buying sports bras, and Nike 3/4 tights that were perfect for spin classes (and still own them till date). They are super durable. But along the way I realized that the material and type of sportswear affects the kind of training you’d be doing. I used to wear the same type of sports bra and tights for spin, cardio, strength, yoga… Till I realized how high impact bras makes getting into yoga poses tough and uncomfortable.


Till I started getting different attires for different types of training.

"Sport-specific attire is designed take into account the types of movements that will be done and what type of fabric the wearer will need to stay comfortable and dry." Livestrong provides the type of fabric and some factors to consider based on the type of sports and activities you’ll be engaging in.

Well, Urban Slings, a sports luxe exclusive retailer in Singapore definitely got it all worked out for you!

To be able to train in their versatile pieces, was amazing. Geared in Vie Active’s F3 Compression Technology Active Wear, it felt like a second skin. It’s light, and managing squats didn’t cause the leggings to move, or even having to adjust it after every set. I have completed my HIIT, yoga flow session and legs superset in the gym with them, as well as wore them as my usual leggings.
