BONDS: Canberra Centre, Canberra Outlet Centre and Westfield Woden

Bonds is not necessarily considered a fitness apparel store by all, however they sell a range of super cute sweat pants, jumpers and basic tee’s that will be perfect for people heading outside for walks and jogs the colder Canberra months.

Suited to those of us who aspire to be cosy when working out or need some basic tees and jumpers to pair with our excising range of tights and runners.



WE ARE FOUND: Mussen Clothing

Local Boss gal Daniella creates an array of stand out tights that are uniquely their own. Even if you haven’t heard of the brand there is no doubt you have seen someone wearing the camo or soho style tights at your local gym, barre class or lake walk.

Daniella has tried and tested each of the designs to ensure no chance of fabric stretching a little too much and showing underwear mid squat. We are in love with the fit and feel of these – plus extra brownie points for being a Canberra girl.
