We're making 2016 our fittest yet, as we train for NTC Tour Sydney in partnership with NIKE Women. Join us and be Better For It.
I don't mean to alarm you, but
NTC Tour Sydney is just three sleeps away. Deep. Breaths. No doubt you've reached your physical peak ( all that training has paid off!), but it's likely you're still a little nervous. Me too! This is the part where I tell you everything is going to be OK — we're in this together.
Like every momentous occasion, preparing mentally will set you up for success. Personally, I like to lay out (or try on) my outfit before the big day arrives. It's one less thing to stress about! Keep scrolling to see the tried and tested
NIKE pieces that have been designed specifically for training — i.e. your perfect outfit for NTC Tour Sydney!
P.S. If you're not registered, you can watch the opening workout via livestream at 11:30 a.m. AEST on the
NIKE Women YouTube channel. You might catch a glimpse of the POPSUGAR Australia squad!
NIKE Pro Classic Padded Tidal Multi Sports Bra, $55
Lesson number one: thou shalt always support your breasts when exercising. This sports bra has a compression fit and racerback straps that provide medium support and a full range of motion. It's perfect for dance, cycling and cardio. Personally, I also enjoy the removable padding as it allows you to customise your shape and coverage.

NIKE Pro Hypercool Palm 3" Shorts, $55
The body-hugging fit and flat elastic waistband allow these shorts to move with your body, without limiting movement. The stretchy mesh panels follow the curve of the thigh, helping you stay cool. NTC Tour Sydney is bound to get hot, making these shorts a must-have!

NIKE Get Fit Veneer Tank, $50
This ultra-soft, sweat-wicking tank is one of my personal favourites, especially when paired with the NIKE Pro shorts above. It's designed to fall below the hips and flares out slightly at the hem — skimming the body to create a soft, flattering line (read: it hides your muffin top).

NIKE Pro Hero Sports Bra, $80
If your lady lumps are on the larger side, you'll need additional support for maximum comfort. The padded straps in this sports bra provide extra cushioning, while the contoured side seam helps lock you in place during high-impact workouts. Not worrying about the dreaded bounce will allow you to push your body harder and focus on sweating it out!

NIKE Lunar Sculpt Training Shoe, $160
Can we please stop and appreciate the design of this shoe? While it looks like a lifestyle sneaker, it's actually a highly engineered trainer. The no-sew construction (I know!) allows the shoe to move seamlessly with your foot, as laser-cut sipes on the sidewall and underfoot help disperse impact pressure. In layman's terms, your foot won't get tired when you're bouncing through multiple workouts. Winner!

NIKE Pro Fierce Sports Bra, $60
Moulded, compressive mesh cups in this sleek sports bra provide vertical and lateral support during medium-impact workouts — think cycling, dance and cardio. The stretchy Dri-FIT fabric wicks away sweat to keep you dry and comfortable.

NIKE Pro Hypercool Limitless Tank, $70
With a seamless, body-hugging fit and mesh in the key sweat zones, this tank is the perfect base layer.

NIKE Pro Hypercool Tidal Multi Capri Tights, $75
Stretchy, sweat-wicking fabric is a must-have when training (not to mention looking great as well!), and these tights deliver on all fronts. The breathable panels and ultra-light fabric will keep you cool and comfortable on game day.

NIKE Pro Hypercool Limitless Top, $80
Engineered mesh (three different textures are woven in!) provides ventilation and a wide range of motion in this t-shirt. The fitted silhouette contours to your body, so it won't ride up during burpees.

NIKE Air Zoom Fit Agility 2, $160
The strategic placement of hexagonal pods provides responsive, low-profile cushioning, so your foot can move naturally in any direction. The Flywire cable delivers support and stability during quick movements — you're bound to do a few of these on Saturday!
10 / 11
NIKE Zoned Sculpt Capri Tights, $150
The seamless compression zones woven into these tights are designed to support key muscles in your core, quads and calves. The high waistband provides extra coverage as you bend and stretch, as well as reminding you to switch on your abs.
