Fitness: Fashion and Function

Owning a CrossFit Affiliate means a huge part of my day is spent in workout gear. Ok, let’s get real… even when I’m not at CrossFit I’m still in my workout gear. So having workout gear that is functional is a must, but I want it to be fashionable too! When I look good, I feel good. When I feel good I perform better. So today I want to share some of my favorite finds when it comes to Fitness Fashion and Function!

First I want to tell you about Ellie. You may have heard of it previously as PV Body. I know a lot of bloggers have worked with them and had mixed experiences. I did a review when they first came out with the PV Body Subscription. I liked the idea but the execution was off. Since then they have rebranded and come out with their own line of activewear. With Ellie you can buy the pieces individually or you can sign up for the Fit Fashionista Club, which allows you to pick any 2 pieces a month for $49.95. They are coming out with new collections each month. When it debuted my major reservation was that it only went up to size Large, which previously was a tad on the tight side for me. They just recently expanded to offer most styles in XL. I got to try out the Emerald Envy Tank and Cut Above the Rest shorts in XL.

I loved that the tank comes with removable cups. The material is quality. I have not had any issues with my recent orders so it seems they have the whole shipping/ordering process figured out. One of the things I didn’t like about their previous PV Body service is that you’d get something random each month. This new program allows you to pick the pieces you want. Want 2 pairs of shorts instead of a full outfit? Done. 2 Shirts? No problem. It is a fun way to add to your fitness wardrobe!

When it comes to shoes I’m pretty picky. I have different shoes I like for different things, so my shoe collection is pretty large. I love the Nano for everything CrossFit. It is a versatile shoe but I still like to try new things. Recently I was given the opportunity to try out the new UnderArmour Speedform. These shoes are pretty legit. They are made in a bra factory! They wanted to have a shoe that would really mold to your foot and give you the perfect fit. They have a seamless heel cup and are super light and great for running. I broke them in at the track. They have plenty of cushion and mold around the toes. They breathe really well. If you are looking for a light fast shoe, definitely check these out.

When it comes to CrossFit, you can never have too many tshirts. There are tshirts for daaaays. And for me, they never get old. They may smell old after a workout… but I still love them. I recently game across G2OH. They have some pretty epic shirts. They offered to send me one to test out and I couldn’t stop laughing when I saw this one:

Of course, I wore it to the box on Squat day. I am often known for yelling out “Get that depth” or “Deeper!” in the middle of squat workouts #squatnazi

This is my post workout mean face. I have no idea what I’m even thinking.

They have some other pretty epic designs including the Sweat Angel, “I RX’d The Warm Up”, and most recently a shirt to benefit the Hotshots19 Hero WOD.

Do you look for fitness function? or fashion? Or both?

  1. I love the RXed the Warmup shirt! I feel that way all the time.. like it’s okay if I can’t RX the WOD, I at least can RX the warmup. 😉
    We have people at the box who always try to “Win” the warmup, too.. hehe.

  2. Hey, I dont know if you have heard of a website called Fittamamma. They are a maternity sportswear company but their tops are really supportive, if you like a good fitted top! I wear mine when im running and high intensity training and they are great and also dont get in the way!
    Just thought I would suggest if you would like to try something different 🙂
