For many years, I went through life wearing whatever to the gym. To me, it wasn’t important. Afterall, I was there to sweat. But gradually, my mindset began to change. I purchased a few cute pieces from discount stores like Target, Old Navy, and TJ Maxx. Some were great, some…not so much. I can’t tell you the number of items I’ve donated because the pants ended up being ill-fitting (nothing like having to pull up your pants every 2 minutes) or the bras were not supportive enough for my post-breastfeeding girls.
That’s when I decided to start investing in some nice workout wear. It may sound strange on the surface, but really, it makes all the sense. Why?
Because it motivates me to work out. Seriously. My lounge at home clothes cannot be my workout clothes. And being excited to wear something cute to the gym? Sure…its a small motivating factor.
Recently, Wantable came out with a Fitness Edit. Much like the highly popular Stitch Fix, its a try-before-you-buy program where, after you fill out a style quiz and then you’re sent 5 items. You’re charged a $20 styling fee, which is applied towards the items you choose to keep. If you keep 3-4 of the items, there’s a 20% discount. If you keep all 5, the discount is 30%. All items are generally between $30-$70, which is in line with the popular workout fashion stores
However, I put down XS as my size and, as you can see, this came up short in the chest area. Guess I need to size up.
I also loved those gray NUX flash capris- they were almost like a super light compression tight. Again, I had put down XS, but these were just a bit too tight. I am going to be a bit frank…they gave me camel toe. And that’s no bueno.
While I may not have kept everything, I’d say that this was a win. I’ll definitely be trying the Wantable Fitness Edit again. And its fun to get a surprise in the mail, is it not?
