The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - Body and Soul - - NEWS - – ELIN

When I first moved to Aus­tralia al­most five years ago, it didn’t take me long to fall in love with the Aussie life­style. But there was one thing that took a lit­tle longer to get my head around – the ob­ses­sion with ac­tivewear. The idea that peo­ple wore work­out gear when they had no plans to ac­tu­ally ex­er­cise seemed ut­terly baf­fling. Of course, I quickly re­alised there are very good rea­sons for that.

Firstly, there’s heaps of it to choose from here, and much of it’s de­signed by Aus­tralians. Sec­ondly it’s pretty stylish and su­per comfy – so why wouldn’t you forgo your jeans to spend week­ends in stretch­ier, more breath­able fab­rics? But best of all, any­one, and I mean any­one – no mat­ter your size, age or fit­ness level – can look and feel great in it.

So, now that I’m a full-fledged mem­ber of the fit-wardrobe fan club, this week we’re cel­e­brat­ing all that’s great about Aussie ac­tivewear – from the movers and shapers at the fore­front of the in­dus­try, on page 8, to our pick of the best new- sea­son styles to suit your body type, on page 4.

Else­where in this is­sue, we’re bring­ing you a sneak peek of our new glossy mag­a­zine ‘10 Min­utes to Calm’ on page 14. On sale from to­mor­row, think of it as your ul­ti­mate hand­bag­sized guide to sap­ping stress and keep­ing your cool in any sit­u­a­tion. You’re wel­come!
