When it comes to working out, for me, it’s hard enough to be movtivated to do it so having comfy workout clothes are a must. The first thing that will stop my workout before it event starts is not having something comfy to wear. Thanks to Russell Athletics Womens Line, that is a worry I don’t have anymore. I was sent over two different outfits to try with my workout routine. Check these out:
I received the Full Coverage Performance Tank, Dri-Power 360 Round Neck Tee, Cotton Stretch Capri, Semi-fit Performance Capri to try. I dove right in and put on the tee and cotton stretch capri because I have always been a tee kind of girl when working out. Both the shirt and capri were light, soft, and felt perfect when I was doing my 10 Minute Workout. They weren’t heavy like some of my normal t-shirts and capri’s, which I found freeing. The shirt came down long which I thought might be constricting but they way it is made, it is the opposite. The capri’s were a perfect fit, they fit loosely around the legs but my waist perfectly. No worries of pants falling here, that’s a pet peeve of mine, having pants you have to constantly readjust during a workout. I definitely noted this becoming a favorite of mine.
Next I tried out the performance tank and performance capri. This pair was a like a mirage of water in the middle of the desert, except not a mirage and really does keep you cool. I slipped them on and immediately noted the different material from the outfit above. It was very light, breezy, and kept me very cool (well as cool as one can be during a workout). One thing I loved about the pants, aside from how cool they kept me, is in the back there is a little zip pocket, perfect for keeping you hands free. You can’t store much but it’s perfect for keys (as long as you don’t have a ton) or credit cards. Both the tank and capris have a design that makes them very fun to wear, with lines and cuts that seem to be meant to flatter. I did note even though I ordered the smallest size these were baggy on me, so in my case they seemed to run big. Which makes me glad I ordered a small instead of the medium I was considering.
Both of the outfits have become a regular part of my workout routine and I have a feeling they will get worn until they can be worn no more. That’s the true test, seeing how long they last. They are also something I will be wearing workout or not, that’s how comfy and cute they are. Perfect for working in the yard, running errands, everyday around the house…in other words they will get their use. Good workout clothes are an important investment in my opinion because you want to feel good and look great when working out. Russell Athletics has some great pieces to choose from, they definitely get A Daily Dose’s approval.
