After a weekend in Scottsdale, I seriously needed this workout! It’s always more fun to workout when you have new athletic wear and I am loving this set. A couple weeks ago I put a poll on instagram to see if you liked this blue set or a gray one, and you all said you liked the blue… so here it is! I really liked it before it came in but loved it even more than I thought I would when it came in.
This athletic wear is from Astoria Activewear which is a brand I have recently found but I love. The leggings hug and suck you in in all the right places. I love how this look can take you from the gym to running errands to grabbing a smoothie! If you use the code THEMERIDIANBLISS at checkout you will receive 15% off your order at Astoria Activewear!
Now onto the workout for today! Cardio warmup

Tennis outfits are something that we wear on the regular… not just to play tennis too! Not only are tennis outfits adorable and comfortable but they often seem like a dressed up version of your typical athletic wear. They are a great way to look put together while chasing the kids around, running errands, or actually working out!
We have rounded up some of our top picks for tennis apparel below. Let us know which would be your pick.
