Superhero in Training: Geek Workout Gear


When I was in school, I was pretty much convinced that I didn’t have an athletic bone in my body. I preferred the comfort of art club, marching band, and my video games over team sports. However, all that changed when I discovered weightlifting earlier this year.

I’ve finally found something that I not only love and makes me stronger, but that also makes me feel like a superhero in training. However, when it come to geek clothes to workout in, I’m sorely lacking.

Inspired by this Instagram photo from Her Universe where she’s rocking a Wonder Woman shirt, I was curious to see what options are out there for active geeks.

Home is Where the Geek Is


While a lot of our focus is often fashion based, we do, from time to time, sneak in some items geared at sprucing up your home. With many stores carrying college items, I’ve gotten a slight case of nesting. (Speaking of, although not geeky, I picked up these pillows from Target and LOVE THEM!)
