Hellloooo y’all! This week’s Tiff’s Favorites is all about activewear. If you’ve been here awhile you know I like to workout. The hubby and I head to the gym, for a run or do some at home circuit training about 5 times a week, so needless to say I have a lot of activewear.
I’ve tried many brands of exercise clothing and have found a few tried and true brands that I go back to for multiple reasons:
1. Durability. You wash and wear so many times. It has to hold up.
2. Flexiblity. You’re out there moving and shaking (for those Zumba girls out there). The clothes have to move with you.
3. Breathability. You’re sweating your behind off. The last thing you need is a cotton t-shirt that doesn’t wick away the sweat and provide you as much coolness as possible.
4. Cuteness factor. We all want to look good right? Even when we’re sweating our butts off.
Because I wear them so often, I’ll spend a good amount of money on gym clothes. Like I said above, they have to be durable and last me a while, so I’m willing to fork out a bit more to not have to replace a pair of shorts or capris every year.
I’m going to break down my favorite brands and show you a few items that I wear from these brands and that I think are great (and available right now! Score!).
And now that I’ve mentioned it, let’s talk about sports bras shall we? Under Armour is one of the only companies I’ll trust my ladies to.
It’s a little on the spendy side, but it’s super cute and I’m a sucker for thumb holes.
If you’re looking for some great shoes for the gym, I highly recommend Nike Free 5.0 Running Shoes. They’re a super lightweight running shoe, similar to a barefoot shoe. I wear them at the gym and running (nothing too long, 5 miles or less usually). Nordstrom carries a great variety Nike Frees.
Do you have some great activewear you seek out? Sound off and let me know about it!
