Diary of a workout wardrobe: Chiara Pellegrino

posted on Thursday, 19th May 2016 | find under Fashion , Fitness
Psycle instructor, creator of TotalBody and personal trainer, Chiara Pellegrino is an ideal Sweaty Betty ambassador. Named by Women’s Health as ‘one of London’s PTs that make us want to work out’, this Italian girl in London is known for her high-energy, fun classes that create serious results. Always spotted on her Instagram looking on-trend in the latest Sweaty Betty gear, we followed her as she ran around London from the spin studio to walking her puppy in her favourite leggings.

I am always on the move, walking around London between personal training clients, teaching classes and blogging so the reversible Urdhva Leggings are so convenient. When I’m teaching spinning, I love to wear print on the bike - this palm tree design really stands out when worn with the matching Bakasana Vest and I've received so many compliments.

When I’m running around, I practically carry my life with me in my Luxe Run Backpack. If I have plans in the afternoon or evening, this means I always have a spare change of clothes. As the Urdhva Leggings are reversible, I can just swap them to black and throw on a bomber jacket and trainers. Plus, they are super-soft and comfortable so it’s almost like wearing pyjamas, just with a flattering fit and added cool mesh panels.

Even though teaching is a great workout in itself, I always make sure I keep training for myself to keep motivated and in shape. When I don’t have time to head to a studio, I usually go for a run in the local park or along the river wearing my Santa Marta leggings with the matching Homestraight Tank. This is an outfit made to wow. Plus, they are so supportive and prevent sweat, so I can run for miles in comfort. When I'm warming up and down, I throw on the Fleece Tech Pullover for extra warmth.

My boyfriend and I have recently adopted a puggle puppy called Coco, so whenever I can I try and spend time with her. Time together is the highlight of my day, so after training I throw on a leather biker over my Lateral Run Tunic, pick up Coco and head to my favourite meal of the day brunch, I always have avocado on toast. The black mesh panels on the Santa Marta leggings are so flattering that they work for beyond the studio.

Living in London, the opportunities to train outdoors are endless and I love to run through the beautiful parks, along the river and by the Southbank. It’s recently been really warm, so I’ve been taking every opportunity to train clients and work out in the park, I just take basic equipment and am good to go. I love using my TRX and kettlebells with some added kickboxing. I can’t claim my clients always enjoy it, but I can promise results!
 
On days when I want to wear a black legging, I always reach for my 10k Tights. They are super-stretchy, versatile and so flattering that I never want to take them off. For a warm weather workout, I like to wear them with the printed Superior Crop Top, which is both supportive and fashion-forward, so I can just throw on a denim jacket and head to dinner.
