like a husky after the Id-
itarod. The good news is
you can still look cool. Stylish ex-
ercise garb adds fashion to fit-
ness. What's in? What's out? The
Jewish News consulted with die-
hard athletes in metro Detroit to
uncover the do's and don'ts of
workout wear.
Thongs?
Condemned by some as inde-
cent threads of vanity, thongs
nevertheless remain the rage at
local gyms.
"I would say thongs are more
popular than full-bottom leotards.
A lot of people find them more
comfortable because thongs don't
ride up or ride down," says
Helaine Keller, a co-owner with
Andrea Bernstein of Fitnesse in
Birmingham.
Aesthetically, high-cut thongs
have been touted for giving legs
a longer, sleeker look. Boxer
shorts are trendy, too. General-
ly, the male undergarments are
worn over knee-length or ankle-
length tights for extra warmth
during the winter.
Leg Warmers
In the late 1980s, women —
mainly — wore them every-
where. To school. Shopping. With
mini skirts. Over pants. As sta-
tus symbols (remember those
"Flash Dance" wannabes?).
Thankfully, the bulky knits are
reserved for dance class these
days. Although they might con-
stitute a faux pas in the fashion
arena, leg waimers serve a prac-
tical use. For dancers, they help
keep critical shin muscles cozy
and flexible during respites off
the floor. (In aerobics class, sub-
stitute with slouch socks.)
Sweatshirts

It really doesn't matter what
school logo emblazons the cloth-
ing. Fact is, sweatshirts are work-
out garments that still work out.
Recently, however, a new twist
has arisen: sweatshirts tied
around the waistline, drooping
over a body suit to cover the rear
end.
Is this new style an indication
of practicality or, perhaps, vani-
ty with a trace of self-conscious
modesty?

"They are pieces

Ms. Migdal says.
