Spring is a time to shape up, get strong and motivated to get outta the house and go ride/gym/jog.
We all have busy lives, and as women, we generally make ourselves the last priority. Not this spring. This spring, we become strong, healthy, and confident. We become #beciequibabes
Our Spring Edit features one of the most stunning women I have ever laid eyes on. A statuesque beauty, Elissa is not only a rider, but also a power lifter, dump truck driver and make up artist...what a woman!
Elissa wears our Black Platinum Luxe Leggings, paired perfectly with Quiebro Tank Top and of course our High Ponee Hat, to keep the rays at bay. Elissa explained to me how important stretching is to her fitness routine, and loves how stretchy and lightweight our leggings are.
Basic leg stretches are a must for riders to stay supple and to warm the muscles up before working out in the saddle, or at the gym.
Ladies, no one wants a pooch belly, mum tum, or muffin top. Elissa explains that sit ups and their variations, including planks and scissor kicks help to keep the abs taught and toned.
Think about how much we use our core during a ride - it keeps us stable and balanced...if it is weak, we make our horse's job a hell of a lot harder, and our own!
Our butt and legs are a major point of concern for many girls. Most of us do OK in the saddle without any extra training, but the increase in muscular endurance that comes from doing even simple body weight exercises like squats and lunges can really make a difference ...not only to the way we ride, but our whole shape, in and out of the saddle.
Elissa loves the technical qualities of our clothing range, and was so happy to find some riding pants that she can easily use at the gym too. Her favourite was our Midnite Coral Luxe Leggings.
The other thing Elissa found refreshing about Beci Equi products was how stylish they look, even in larger sizes. It is not easy to find riding clothes or activewear that feel comfy, give you the freedom to move, and also look flattering, especially in larger sizes.
Thanks to the luxe matte fabric that our Luxe Leggings are made from, Elissa felt totally free to move, stretch and work out. The four way stretch and seamless thigh design are not only practical, but also flattering for all sizes and shapes.
Elissa wore our Quiebro Tank Top in large, and our full Luxe Legging range in large. She is a size 14-16, and 5'11.
Love Elissa's look?
