Workout Gear I’m Loving Lately

Mastermind Weekend 1/16

Hey there!

I'm Tina

I’m the owner of Carrots ‘N’ Cake as well as a Certified Nutrition Coach and Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner (FDN-P). I use macros and functional nutrition to help women find balance within their diets while achieving their body composition goals.


An in-depth, 4-week reverse dieting course for women who feel like their metabolism has slowed down, think they might have hormonal imbalance and can’t lose weight no matter what they do.

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.

Question of the Day

What piece of workout gear are you especially loving right now?

  1. 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!

  2. oooh i JUST got the old navy compression capris and will be back this weekend to buy them in every color. my most fave workout item i own right now. going to have to look for the stretch pullover too.
    new to your blog and loving it!

  3. 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?

  4. 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?
