I have found blogging and vlogging a little harder to fit in lately and that’s because I have joined a gym! I’m going about 5 times a week and getting completely addicted. I have never joined a gym before because I worried that I would be paying all this money each month and not going.
I have a friend that has been going to the gym for years and is slightly obsessed, so I knew she would be good motivation. Anyway, this blog has a point…
My fitness journey has meant that I have started to get really into fitness fashion. At the gym I couldn’t wear all my running clothes – just didn’t work!
Obviously I had to get some new gear, and I looked no further than Sweaty Betty. I didn’t mention my new purchases on the blog – you may have spotted it in my recent vlog though. I’ve just started a new series over on my channel, where I share all my purchases from that month. However, I have just had the email that Sweaty Betty have gone into sale! Therefore, I felt the need to share with you as I am so impressed with these items.
These leggings caught my eye instantly! They are so bright and happy. They are definitely gym worthy and they are also really comfortable. I’ve owned them for two months now and they have been worn and washed A LOT. They still feel fabulous on though and they colour seems to have stood the test of time (so far).
I actually prefer the design on the long ones and was torn between the two. I wanted cropped because of how hot it gets in the gym… But the long ones have a black panelling around the waist that I found extremely flattering – the cropped don’t have this.
The material on them is also amazing. They have a technology that wicks away sweat! That meant that when I spilt my smoothie, it just wiped off the material! BONUS!
“The bum-sculpting superhero leggings in a flattering crop. Made from ultra-lightweight and sweat-wicking Italian fabric, they perform for all high-intensity workouts and sculpt the silhouette. Offering muscle-compressing performance, the breathable mesh panels ensure your best ever workout. Wear come rain or shine, as specially constructed fabric offers a higher level of protection against the damaging effects of ultraviolet rays. Suitable for all workouts, from running to spin – though we don’t recommend downward dogs.”
If you love this print, they do a matching top here.
As I mentioned, the crop trousers also have a matching crop top, which I initially went in for. Once I tried the two on together I found that the print was a bit much, so I opted for this option. However, if you’re opting for the long length then this would work. The black panel I mentioned breaks up the print and I personally think it flows much better.
I really liked this top because it’s reversible, so I felt like I was getting BOGOF! I also liked the design and the length of crop. I’m not quite body ready for a full crop top or sport bra situation, so this top partnered with high waisted leggings is the perfect fit. You see just a little bit of flesh, making me feel covered enough to be comfortable when surrounded by a class full of six packs.
This crop top is also in the sale, so I would go quick if you like it. It comes with this black side shown in the pictures and then also a beautiful oxblood colour on the other side.
“Become top of the crops in this statement vest. In reversible fabric get two looks in one with both black and oxblood on offer, wear this high stretch, lightweight top over a sports bra for multiple workouts from running, to Pilates and spin. Sweat-wicking and quick drying, the contrast breathable mesh back enhances your workout and looks amazing.”
Let me know if you managed to pick up a bargain! I also want to thank you for your support over on the previous blog – it means a lot.
