I love fitness gear! Without a doubt most of what I spend my money on is gym clothes. Even when I wasn’t working out as regularly as I’d like, I was still a sucker for a great pair of pants or a top.
After my group run on Saturday one woman was buying a few things and she said how much she loved the color of the shirt. She’s new to fitness overall and I told her that the best way to be excited about working out is to have gear that you love. (While I can’t take credit for the message (I think it’s proven), she seemed so surprised and enlightened by this comment.)
So here are a few of my recent buys and my thoughts on them (when applicable).
The first two are from the gap, which seems to be having 40% off at the moment.
Reflective quarter zip pullover – I love anything reflective so of course this made me smile. Haven’t tried it on yet (just arrived yesterday) but it looks great.
gFast reflective fleece leggings – Once again, I love the reflectors. Haven’t tried them on yet, but my first thought was that they seem really thin. They feel somewhat fleecy, but not nearly as fleecy (is that a word?) as my Sugoi pants. Will let you know.
Both of these items are currently on sale. Score!
Here are the items I recently purchased from Victoria’s Secret when they had they’re free pants promo. (Don’t mind the screen shots, the site was blocked so I had to get creative.)
The sports bra. Verdict? Not a fan. I almost had to dislocate my shoulder to get it on and then I just didn’t care for the way it fit. I may try to sell it. 😉
I bought this pattern, but not this pant. I bought the Knockout capri, but it seems like it’s sold out, so I couldn’t grab a photo. I think I like the pants. They have small VS logos on them (that are reflective). I’m not crazy about that, but I like the bright/bold color. They may run a little big, but I think they’ll still be good for non running workouts.
Since I got both for $43, I think it may still be worth keeping, since I’d have to return both or pay $70 for just the pants. Ugh!
And lastly, since I’m running outside at night, I needed some illumination. These are due to be delivered later today and I’m kind of excited about adding some colored light to my outfits. 🙂
(sorry if these photos are showing up twice, i’m having blog issues)
For this one, i went with the collage version. I bought two green arm bands and blue light up things for my sneakers. I’m going to be a green and blue rainbow!! Can’t wait to try them out tomorrow for my 2-mile repeats!
Any recent buys you’d like to share? Any good deals out there?
