How It’s Done: Navy Workout Leggings

We asked our friend Daphne Javitch, a holistic nutritionist and lifestyle coach, to show us three ways—and three places—she’s wearing our navy New Balance® for J.Crew performance leggings. And since it’s resolution time, she threw in some tips for the new year, just for us.


FOR WORKOUT

Practicing yoga

“I really feel that my body was designed to move, and these leggings are super-comfortable—and very flattering, which
I love.”



“I appreciate having 60 or 90 minutes to just breathe and not be connected to a device. I have a lot of ideas when I’m not looking at my phone.”

FOR WEEKEND 

Grabbing a snack 

“I definitely have a reputation
for having sporty style among my
friends—I think it’s probably because I never change after I go to the gym! I’m very much a person who wears leggings with a really nice coat.” 

Daphne wears our Regent topcoat in double-serge woolFrench colors sweatshirt, New Balance for J.Crew performance leggings, and Charlie tassel loafers in snakeskin-printed leather (similar here).



“If I have a crazy weekend where I go away and eat all kinds of things I wouldn’t usually eat and don’t have a chance to work out, I can always rely on Monday morning. I love it. Monday morning I can get back to my routine.” 


FOR WHEREVER 

Meeting a client for coffee

“We’ve come such a long way with athleisure clothes. These leggings look like street clothes, not embarrassing workout gear.” 




DAPHNE’S TIPS TO START THE NEW YEAR RIGHT 

1.
GET REAL WITH YOURSELF
“You really are what you think about all day. Focus on what you’re curious about, what turns you on, what glows in the dark—and then let your profession follow your passion.”

2.
WORKING OUT = CREATIVITY
“Athletes and people who work out every day make a conscious decision to do something hard that most of us don’t want to do. I think that opens up a certain confidence and becomes this great garden to cultivate ideas from a place without so much self-doubt.”

3.
ASK FOR HELP
“I couldn’t do anything without the help of people around me. So many of them are incredibly generous with their time, have experience in a million different things and are really excited to help—especially if I’ve helped them in the past or have been a supportive friend.”

4.
MAKE THE TIME
“Honestly, 30 minutes is really not a long time to do anything. Sometimes I tell clients that don’t really work out to just create a Pandora station at home and do free-style dancing in their kitchens. I can’t think of anything easier or more fun to do.”

5.
TAKE THE PRESSURE OFF
“Try not to get so caught up in what 'your calling’ is or what you think you’re 'meant to do.' And don’t feel disappointed in yourself if you haven’t already identified that thing, pursued it and succeeded in it by the time you’re an adult.”

Recipe

Daphne’s Butter-free Popcorn 

A healthy take on the movie-night classic.
INGREDIENTS

Sea salt and ground pepper to taste 
DIRECTIONS
Melt the oil in a large pot. 

Cover the bottom of the pot with a single layer of
popcorn kernels. 

Cover the pot with a lid and turn the heat to high.

Once popping begins, shake the pot every couple of minutes. 

Remove from the stove once the popping quiets down.

Add salt and pepper and shake the pot some more.
