• Workout Gear I’m Loving Lately

    January 15, 2013

    You guys really liked my Beauty Products I’m Loving Right Now post, so I decided to do one for the workout gear that I especially love right now. I’ve also received a few questions asking what I typically wear for CrossFit workouts, so here’s a run down—from head to toe—of what I wear (and love)!


    BIC Bands

    BIC Bands really do stay put and come in a variety of patterns, colors, and sizes, so I’m almost always wearing one during my workouts to keep my hair out of my face.


    Honorable mention: CrossFit No Slip Headband

    This is also a great headband. If I’m not wearing a BIC Band, I’m wearing a CrossFit No Slip Headband in either black or gray. It just depends on what I’m wearing. I’m a dork and usually try to match my headband to my outfit.



    CrossFit Racer Long Bra Top

    The CrossFit Racer Long Bra Top is my favorite workout top right now. It’s soft and comfy, it doesn’t ride up during workouts, and it’s flattering—I like how it shows off my shoulders. I own it in teal and red and wear it a lot!


    Sports Bra

    Lululemon Tata Tamer (forever and always)

    I’ve found a couple of other sports bras that give the Tata Tamer a run for its money, but it’s still the best I’ve ever found. It’s supportive, comfortable, and flattering (no uni-boob). I usually wear a Tata Tamer with a bra top for CrossFit workouts, which gives me plenty of support even for WODs with running, jumping, or double-undering.

    Honorable mention: CrossFit Racerback Bra

    When I wear the CrossFit Racer Long Bra Top (above), I wear a CrossFit Racerback Bra instead of the Tata Tamer, so the wider straps don’t stick out. The CrossFit Racerback Bra might not look it, but it’s surprisingly supportive. The fabric is thick (almost like compression gear), so everything stays put!

    Long Sleeve Top

    Old Navy Women’s Active Stretch Pullover

    Ever since I got the Active Stretch Pullover from Old Navy, I’ve been totally obsessed with it and wear it for CrossFit workouts all the time. It’s usually kind of cold inside our box, so I wear it during the warm-up until my body heats up. It’s lightweight, so it allows me to easily and comfortably move through a variety of dynamic exercises before the workout really starts.



    Old Navy Women’s Compression Capris in Retro Violet

    I guess I’m kind of bored with all of the black capris that I own because I’ve been rocking the Retro Violet Compress Capris from Old Navy lately. They’re so fun! I love workout gear with color!



    Reebok Nano 2.0

    Oh, Reebok Nanos, how I love you so. The Nano 2.0 are seriously the best shoe for CrossFit. They’re light yet stable, so they’re great for everything from box jumps to Olympics lifts. They’re my favorite.

    Honorable mention: RealFlex Fusion TR

    I love these sneakers too. I’ll wear them during WODs with a lot of running or jumping because they’re really flexible and have some cushion to them—otherwise, I wear my Nanos.

    I’ve been thinking of buying a legit sports bra, and not just the thick bras they sell at Target, but I honestly and not too sure how great of an investment it would be. I don’t exactly have much that needs controlling, but if I ever do, I’ll look to these!

    So I’m kind of a sweater anyways and then when I’m in the gym it’s a hundred times worse. Is it dorky to wear a sweatband as long as it’s not one of those stupid terry cloth ones?

    Anything Lululemon! I love the new high rise wunder Unders. SO comfortable!

    I love lululemon (probably to an unhealthy point), and am kind of hooked and afraid to expand my variety. If I were to guess, Old Navy is probably much more cost effective when compared to Reebok (or Lulu), right?

    So I’ve got an awkward kind of question I guess… I generally was buying bottoms to work out in because I sweat a lot and was worried that purple would show sweat. Does that happen? Do you get sweat lines?

    I didn’t notice any! 🙂
