i do sort of. for me - i think that i feel like i look cute to begin with then i'll work out more. i always have on bright colors and my sneakers usually match some how :) it's not for anyone other than me though - i'm not trying to impress anyone at the gym.

I stick to sweats and old tees too. Sometime hoodies. I wear a little bit of blush and gloss though.

Well, I workout in my house, on my own elliptical machine, so no, I don't dress up. When I go to yoga class, however, I try to look cute.

When I was in college, I saw girls trot on the treadmill with hoop earrings and rings and in their skimpiest work-out gear.. and MAKE-UP! It was gross.

Yoga pants or shorts with old tank tops. Who do I have to impress? Usually I'm just on my own elliptical in my own house and the only other person around is my husband.

I have some nice work out clothes--technical running stuff. I'm not going to run 20 miles in old sweats and a tee shirt--that's not a vanity thing, it's an issue of comfort. So if I have to buy it anyway, it might as well look good. Of course, I don't put on make up or fix my hair to go to the gym though--that's just ridiculous. Comfort and performance always trumps fashion, but I won't lie--I love my Stella McCartney running jacket! I can't wait for it to get cold enough to wear again.

I don't work out in sweats and tshirts ... not because they aren't "cute" but because they aren't functional! I have a ton of wicking clothes that I wear when running, and brightly colored bike jerseys for cycling.

I always try to look sexy, but work-out appropriate. Usually I wear yoga pants and a sports bra. P.S. I'm drooling over that model's shoes!

When I go running I'm amazed at the women I see running with a face full of makeup and all the fancy track suits and even jewelry. It looks even worse once the sweat starts running down their made up faces. I just wear old sweats and tees.

Never! there is really no going to work out not to impress anyone, besides any type of makeup would be wiped off or non-existent with my tomato workout-face!

Dressing up to work out is just silly. I'm not quite sure how shallow (or stupid) you need to be, but I've definitely seen my fair share of dolled up women at the gym. I don't get it...

I don't dress up like erm, the woman in the picture (as it would be quite difficult to work out in those heels) but I do like wearing cute workout clothes as it makes me feel good about myself!
