Game point gear

“This is a great ten­nis look. Ev­ery­one needs a vi­sor. I like a good old-fash­ioned white be­cause it looks op­ti­mistic. The fab­ri­ca­tion of the T-shirt will let you breathe a lit­tle eas­ier. And this skort — we used to call them that in the ’50s — is so much fun! It’s got lit­tle shorts built in un­der­neath, and the colour combo is just great. I love the neon yel­low with the hot pink and the black on the shoes. They’re racy.” 1 HEAD VI­SOR $26 2 NEW BAL­ANCE SHIRT $65 3 BABOLAT RACKET $239.99 4 NIKE TEN­NIS SKIRT $95 5 NIKE SHOES $190 Mer­chant of Ten­nis, 1621 Bayview Ave.

Them’s fight­ing words

“So this lit­tle out­fit is for Muay Thai, and the getup it­self makes me want to take up the sport. These satin shorts have a won­der­ful waist­band and a campy vibe. If you have the right spirit and at­ti­tude, you could even wear them on the street. And this warm-up jacket — wow! It has got the hood and is sexy as all can be, I think. This out­fit is enough to make you wanna get fit.” 1 WARM-UP ROBE $40 2 MUAY THAI SHORTS $40 3 BOX­ING GLOVES $37.99 Benza Sports, 100 West­more Dr., Unit 15

Dance like you mean it

“Well this re­ally ap­peals to the ro­man­tic in me. I took dance classes, when I lived in New York when I was a teenager, and I love that whole bal­let look. This leotard with the photo print is so fem­i­nine and al­most looks like a piece of fine lin­gerie. A beau­ti­ful lit­tle mesh skirt — great for over a bathing suit at the beach too. These ribbed knit leg­gings are fan­tas­tic. Get a pair whether you stand in front of a bal­let barre or not. And bal­let slip­pers for prac­tis­ing.” 1 FLO­RAL LEOTARD $75.99 2 MESH COVER-UP $27.99 3 BAM­BOO LEG­GINGS $48.99 4 BAL­LET SLIP­PERS $31.99 Dancewear Cen­tre, 530 Wilson Ave.

This jog’s for you

“Run happy! This jacket is nice and lightweight and has a turtle­neck with a lit­tle bit of a fleecier fab­ric to keep you nice and cosy. The shirt has a great stretch, and I love the char­coal grey. What a great work­out pant: they’ve got the rub­ber­ized band at the an­kle so they won’t ride up on you. Love the colour combo and metal­lic de­tail­ing on the shoes — plus they have great treads on the bot­tom. And this hat gets you seen in traf­fic! It’s just a re­ally cute en­sem­ble.” 1 BROOKS JACKET $144.99 2 BROOKS TOP $74.99 3 SUGOI TIGHT $89.99 4 SAU­CONY SKULL CAP $27.99 5 BROOKS SHOES $169.99 The Run­ners Shop, 180 Bloor St. W.
