Day 7- Get After It: Fashion, Headphones and Shoes

 

Oh, why hello.

Just stopping by with another little giveaway for you. Late, yes, but worth the wait? Heck yes.

Smile

Workout Wednesday:

Ran 5 miles on the treadmill. 4 of them were mile repeats at 6:44 pace. Um, yeah, I really need to stop eating and entire kabocha squash before doing those runs. You’d think I would learn.

Taught 45 minute BOSU class

Did a little backyard boot camp with a friend while our kiddos played.

 

So I meant to get this post up earlier, but I’m glad I procrastinated because the giveaway got better than expected.

I’ll even get right to it since it’s late and I desperately need to get to bed.

Check out what I just ate though.

Yep. Creamy Dreamy Ice Cream with some “layers” underneath in a Flatout Cinnamon Crisp Bowl. Oh and yes, that is my favorite Christmas ornament.

Smile

I really tried to pretend I was cool today. I tried to be the cool mommy by making the boys some roasted sweet potatoes in little sticks they could dip in syrup for breakfast.

IMG_6175_thumb_thumb

Well, they preferred the syrup over the sweet potato sticks. Go figure.

Later in the day I tried again with some SBapple sandwiches as a snack (SunButter and apple with a few raisins for fun).

2012-12-11 14.01.55_thumb[9]_thumb

Those went over a little bit better.

Smile

While I lacked a bit in the mom department today, I really tried to be cool with some new fitness gear.

The other day I got a fabulous little package from Reebok.

IMG_6134

In the package was their CrossFit Racer Long Bra top

IMG_6138

and brand new Bose SIE2i Sport Headphones.

IMG_6135

I always get nervous to try new clothes or gadgets for the first time. I’m afraid I’m going to get them dirty or ruin them. I do the same with shoes. I let them sit for a couple days until I’m really ready to try them out. It’s weird.

Anyway, today was the day I went for my new Reebok goodies.

I tried to do a little photo session outside this morning to show off my new top, but it didn’t work out too well.

IMG_6154IMG_6155

That’s Pat our parrot over there. He sure was digging my new shirt. One of the few sounds he can make is the cat call.

Oh, and Turk really liked it too.

IMG_6160

I don’t know what’s up with his photo bombing lately. At least it’s better than this picture. Ha.

IMG_6163

Judah wanted to make sure you got to see the top from all angles.

IMG_6162IMG_6161

What a guy.

I really like the CrossFit Racer Long Bra Top and all the different features.

IMG_6153

I like the long length, the thin straps, the design on the back, the special material that features Play Dry technology and of course the bra pads. Those are always key. It was just so comfortable for my first time wearing it that I felt like I had to do a little vlog. Yeah, I tried to be one of the cool people.

Not to mention Judah was peer pressuring me.

Comfort in Reebok CrossFit Gear.

 

Of course there’s mention of the pads at the end. Ha ha.

 

Since I’m in the video sharing mood, here’s a really great one that talks about the technology of the Reebok CrossFit apparel and how they designed it for the athletes and had comfort in mind. No wonder this tank fits so well.

They did a darn good job designing some comfortable athletic clothes.

 

Along with the new top, I got out the Bose SIE2i Sport Headphones.

IMG_6170IMG_6172

These headphones are the first Bose in-ear headphones specifically engineered for exercise. They represent the start of Reebok’s association with the world’s number one audio company.

IMG_6171

They have a shorter cable and come with a cool stretchy arm band with a special pocket for your keys.

Here’s another video (I guess I’m loving YouTube in this post) with an in-depth look into the technology of the Bose SIE2 fitness headphones.

The technology of the Bose SIE2 fitness headphones.

 

I’m really picky when it comes to headphones. I have a hard time finding ones that not only have good quality sound, but also fit in my ears since they’re so dang small. The standard headphones that come with iPhones and iPods don’t work for me and I have yet to find a blue tooth that stays put.

These ones come with different sizes that you can switch out.

IMG_6173IMG_6167

Those are the medium ones. They fit okay, but I switched them to the small size before heading to the gym.

Hey. One armpit shot and I was ready to go.

2012-12-11 09.00.36

The verdict? I was impressed.

The headphones didn’t budge throughout my treadmill run and it sure seemed like Jeff Probst (yeah, that’s what I was watching) was talking just to me and trying to whisper in my ear. Ha ha.

2012-12-11 11.49.14

Seriously though, Bose sound quality is no joke. I’ve never gotten to experience it before and it was really nice that I didn’t even have to adjust the headphones in my ears at all. That’s rare for my teeny tiny ears.

I can’t wait to put the cool arm band to the test though to really get the full effect.

These headphones should go on your Christmas list like now. They come in orange too.

Or you can just send your friends and family here to buy them online.

Smile

The CrossFit Racer Long Bra Top stayed surprisingly dry feeling while I sucked wind and sweat like a madwoman on the treadmill. I decided to see just how great the Play Dry technology was so I kept the top on to teach my BOSU class afterwards.

2012-12-11 12.49.23

Classy. Sometimes I wonder how I even have people come to my classes.

Maybe they just really like to do V Sits on the BOSU.

2012-12-11 12.49.56

Ha.

Seriously though, if you haven’t tried that move, you should. Talk about core strengthening.

 

Oh wait, I’m supposed to be giving something away, aren’t I?

Did you notice my custom Reebok nanos?

Have I ever told you how much I love shoes?

Well, well, well…..

    I usually look for workout clothes that are practical. I like them to stay in place while I’m working out. There’s nothing worse than worrying about trying to keep your shirt from riding up or shorts from falling down while trying to workout! As for headphones, I wear them most when I’m trying to get in and out of the gym in a short period of time hoping they will deter people from trying to talk to me haha. (It doesn’t always work.) And I enjoy watching millionaire matchmaker while on the cardio equipment; it’s pretty entertaining. 🙂

    I definitely go for comfort and fit when looking for workout gear/shoes!! I would love to try out these awesome shoes for cross training!

    Jennifer says:

    Love the long length tops for staying in place, and the bright colors that are in now are fun! I wear headphones to work out – cardiovascular and need tiny ones like you because of my mini ears! I love watching all the shows I record when on the elliptical – total time saver, greys anatomy, private practice are my standbys but this fall I’ve been loving Nashville and revenge!

    EriGates says:

    I look for function and comfort in wo clothes. I love running shorts w/ a pocket to stash sports beans or gels and I love tanks w/ built in sports bras-I’m small chested so it is plenty of support for me. I wear ear buds when running and on indoor stationary bike. The music pushes me harder and keeps me there a little longer. I do want to listen to Born to Run while on the TM. I own only running sneakers, so cross training shoes would be great!

    oooh COVET THE REEEEBOK STUFFS!

    Kaitlin L. says:

    For workout clothes I look for comfort and sweat wicking materials. I sweat a lot and its really gross for a female I think but what can I say; at least I am getting those toxins out of the body! And fun colors are always a plus! I normally don’t wear headphones unless I’m on a treadmill; which is rare!

  8. 8
    Tess says:

    Well first and for most is function. I don’t want anything falling down, poking out, jiggling around or rubbing me the wrong way when I’m working out. The next thing I want is COLOR!!! It makes my workouts happy when I catch myself and see the bright colors.

  9. 9
  10. 10

    The main thing I look for in workout wear is comfort and something I don’t have to tug on every 5 minutes!

  11. 11

    I look for comfort and how flattering it is! I like the photobombing, it gave me a good laugh 🙂

    I love to have running clothes with a zipper pocket (I don’t trust the pocket if it doesn’t zip!)

    I wear headphones for some long runs and all treadmill runs.m I listen to music or podcasts (usually Ultrarunner podcast or Another Mother Runner)

  16. 16
    Tracy says:

    I. Wear headphones when I do my cardio and when I lift free weights. These look like they would fit great! The shoes look cool too! 🙂

  17. 17
    Marcia Schultz says:

    I look for comfort for sure. I teach bootcamp/circuit classes and comfort comes first, definitely color! I use my earphones on my treadmill at home and I love to watch “What Not to Wear” or “Biggest Loser”.

  18. 18
    Mollie K says:

    I only wear headphones when I am doing cardio, not weights. I actually really hate my headphones because they are the bigger ones that wrap around your ear and absorb ALL my sweat which is so gross btu theyre the only ones that stay on my ears!!!!

  19. 19
    Susan says:

    I love workout wear that has the longer length! No riding up and constantly having to pull it down! Looks like your new Reebok top has that perfect fit! Must Get. One. Now!!

    I like workout gear that fits well, is comfortable, and also in cool colors. I get tired of the standard black pants and t shirt combo sometimes

    Laura B says:

    My gym clothes need to be comfortable, covering and supportive. I love good sound while running and strength training. The gym music driving me crazy so my iPod is devoted to workout playlists. I don’t usually watch shows since I am at a public gym that usually has CNN or ESPN on the TVs. Though I have laughed at the reactions of contestants from The Price is Right.

  23. 23
    Kathy says:

    I go for comfort and cute….I figure if I’m going to be a sweaty mess the clothes might as well look nice right? (or at least nicer than me….I don’t spend a lot on clothes but I still want the cute ones…ha!) Love the tank top.

  24. 24
    Malinda says:

    1. I look for fit in workout clothes. There is nothing worse than something not fitting properly. It can totally ruin a work out.
    2. Headphones for running, elliptical, roller blading, and walking
    3. I watch Ellen. Usually I will do a 20-minute warm-up either elliptical or treadmill with headphones and watch Ellen at the gym. It is hilarious!! I have even lol!!!

  25. 25
    Kayla says:

    Omg those shoes are beautiful!
    I wear headphones any time I workout or run, I need them! Having music just pushes you harder!
    The biggest thing for workout clothes for me is quality. I feel ok spending a little more if I feel it’s made of great quality and will last me longer than something cheaply made. My favorite workout clothing is leggings type pants, in those I want thickness! A lot of them get see through when you bend over! Not good! My favorite thing to watch while I workout is reality tv! It sucks you in so good and loses you so you hardly remember you’re working out! I LOVE those shoes!!

  26. 26
    Jess says:

    I look for comfort and color when I purchase workout gear. I wear headphones whenever I do cardio. It keeps my mind off things! I also like to watch tv while I am running on the treadmill.

  27. 27
    Lesa says:

    What i look for in workout gear has to be comfort and support….and thaat usually fall into some CUTE fashion too 🙂 but yes need the support!!

  28. 28
    Catherine says:

    Comfort is my number one priority with workout clothes, but try to look good to some extent,too. 🙂 For winter runs in Ohio, warmth is a big factor, too. Always have music going for running outside or on any gym equipment.

  29. 29
    Elizabeth G. says:

    I definitely look for workout clothes that are flattering and supportive. I do like some bright colors too. I could use some cute shoes though. I always end up wearing my running shoes instead of cross training shoes to classes!!

  30. 30
    Abby J says:

    My workout clothes HAVE to be comfortable and stay put. I don’t want to be pulling down my shorts or shirt when I’m running. There is nothing more annoying in my book. Also, I have to have shoes that suit my bad ankles. That’s been no fun, let me tell you. When I run, if I had a choice, I would want to watch something funny, like That 70s Show or Top Gear or No Reservations. Sadly, I am at the gym at 5:30 and god knows there is nothing but infomercials on 🙁 I stick with BBC News.

  31. 31
    Amanda Walters says:

    Comfort clothes and some that absorb my sweat!
    Headphones for running, only sometimes though. I like the sound of the pavement

    No TV on cardio; I need to lay on the couch for TV time 🙂

    lora lee says:

    I look for comfort and padding in my workout clothes. The girls need some help although I don’t wear my handful pads when I run. Too much bulk. Took them out on the mill last night at the gym. Talk about stares and classy. As for headphones I wear them always when I exercise. I love listening to jillian. Such knowledge.

  35. 35
    Linda says:

    I love comfort and then a great color in my work out gear. I have the same problem as you with headphones.

  36. 36
    Tracy says:

    Comfort, support, good fit and looks good = usually Lululemon! LOVE watching any of the Real Housewives shows while working out – my guilty pleasure! Or Law & Order SVU.

  37. 37
    Melissa Witte says:

    I wear earphones on the treadmill every day…..Love watching re-runs of Friends (don’t have that cable channel at home so it’s a treat).

  38. 38
    Amy says:

    i am all about the comfort when it comes to gear. I wear head phones when running or biking, and my favorite show to watch on the dreadmill or the stationary bike is Breaking Bad. It gets my heart rate up as well as the workout!

  39. 39

    I mainly look for comfort in my workout gear. Lately I’ve been looking for things to match my Orange Mizuno Wave Creation 13’s, so I’ve got some orange tech tees as of late. I tend to wear my headphones for most of my activities. When I’m at the gym they usually have a couple of news shows on, but they also have “Let’s Make a Deal” on if I time it right or if they have it on the right channel. But, I’m usually listening to music so I don’t listen to the actual words. I just watch the games, costumes, and prizes.

  40. 40

    When I’m on the treadmill I like to watch the Anderson Cooper Show or The View 🙂

    Lillian Halloran says:

    I really like my clothes to be functional. They have to be comfortable otherwise who wants to be miserable when they workout. I’m a runner so I look that there isn’t any spots that might cause chaffing. (Not a god feeling). Last but not least I want my clothes to be vibrant. Fun colors are great. Look good feel good while sweating. That’s what it’s all about!! As far as headphones go. I do not like the apple ones. They don’t stay in my ear. I usually wear them during my longer runs when I need the inspiration. I currently have the skull ones and they rub behind my ear. Maybe I need to try these. Thanks for the cool giveaways!!

  44. 44

    Comfort is always #1 for me!

  45. 45
    Sharron says:

    I wear my headphones while on the treadmill. I am definetly putting these on my wishlist!!

  46. 46
    Lisa says:

    I want my workout clothes to be comfortable (i.e., not too tight). I wear headphones when running SOMETIMES but always wear them when I am at the gym so I can zone out a bit.

  47. 47
    Kelli says:

    I usually look for a good fit in workout clothes. They need to move with me and not bunch up in awkward places. I do not want my workout gear distracting me from my workout, so even with headphones…they need to fit and not require constant attention.

  48. 48
    Christy Diller says:

    I am intrigued by the headphones! I too have teeny tiny ears and have yet to find buds that will stay in….these may have to go on my christmas list…I usually use my sensheiser headphones, they wrap around the back of your head so they are not SO obvious…of course I am usually just using them in my basement, so it probably doesn’t matter! Would love to try some new shoes….am usually a Saucony girl, but keep reading so many good things about Reebok Cross trainers….

  49. 49
    Lizzie says:

    comfort is absolutely priority #1…especially in workout pants. i have huge thighs and a small waist so finding pants that fit is an unending battle! but i also like to look cute in my gear. i only wear headphones while running and they always fall out! so some new ones would be appreciated…

  50. 50

    The most important thing for my workout gear is comfort. my exercising time is my “me time” and I just can’t dive in and get in the zone unless I’m comfortable. Bright colors and patterns are always second in line because looking good while kicking butt is definitely a plus;) I wear my head phones to run and I love when the perfect song comes on to really make you up it a notch. What better show to watch during your cardio routine than price is right?! Sometimes I have to remember I’m in public and stop yelling out answers and playing along 🙂

  51. 51
    Kara says:

    When trying to find workout clothes that I like I look for two things. The first being a shirt that is long enough to fit my never-ending torso, and the second is darn short that don’t ride. There is nothing worse when you are trying to run!

  52. 52
    Jamie says:

    I love to watch the Today Show and KLG & Hoda when I run on the treadmill!

  53. 53
    Megan S. says:

    Shoe wise I always go for something that’s best for my foot type, then what’s comfy. In clothing it’s got to make me look good and not be too tight! 🙂

  54. 54
    Jeffrey says:

    My workout gear has to be comfortable and moisture wicking, colors don’t matter that much because the bright, flashy colors are good for running in the dark. I don’t listen to music when I run, my wife does though. I run outside, don’t like the treadmill. If I ride the recumbant bike at work I read a magazine or the newspaper.
    Thanks for having the giveaway and I hope I win!

  59. 59
    Becca says:

    I was going to say I’m not too picky about clothes, but the. I started thinking, well, I prefer fun colors, something that wicks sweat, and obviously something comfortable that I don’t have to adjust often, if ever. So maybe I’m pickier than I thought!

    And, I probably wear earbuds almost all day. Most of the day at work to keep me from going crazy, and whenever I run since I need something to distract me 🙂

    Mollie says:

    I look for comfort (specifically no chaffing) and color in my workout wear. Of course, since I am the only girl in my house too, I tend to love pink enough for all of us :). I almost always wear headphones while exercising. I find if I can hear myself panting while running I tend to freak out and think I’m working too hard!!

  71. 71
    Carri Arrieta says:

    In workout clothes I go for comfort, and something flattering….after all, why work my butt off to wear something that makes me look bad? I could REALLY use new shoes…I have 3 teenagers who run track/cross country for the high school and it seems I’m always buying THEM new shoes. Can’t remember the last new pair i got. Love the headphones too… they pilfered the pair i won at the Pasadena Marathon…

    Sarah C. says:

    Oh my gosh, it would be so cool to win these!! I usually wear headphones in the car while I’m driving so I can talk on my phone, and also when walking or running outside or on the treadmill. My favorite shows to watch while on the treadmill are usually How I Met Your Mother or Love It or List It since I tend to workout in the evenings after work 🙂

  74. 74
    Nikki says:

    Definitely comfort and function. I need things to stay in place and I don’t want to have to worry about adjusting or pulling my top up or my shorts down. I wear headphones for running and lifting. I try not to wear them when running outside but I bring them with me in case I need a little motivation throughout my run but I always keep the volume super low.

  75. 75
    Stacy says:

    What do you look for in good workout wear?
    – I look for comfort, how I am able to move in it, and fun color of course! My favorite pants are from Old Navy, really great comfort and look for a fraction of what a Lulu would be!

    What activity do you wear headphones for?
    – I sometimes run with headphones, sometimes not. I did just buy my dad some nice Yurbuds for his Christmas present because he ALWAYS runs with headphones.

    What do I look for in workout wear? COMFORT!!! My bottoms can’t give me a wedgie and my tops can’t be too tight to too loose – they have to be just right. If my clothes don’t fit right, I feel like I’m messing with them the entire time and not paying attention to my workout/form. Its an extra bonus when those comfy clothes look good too!!

    I’m a fairly conservative dresser in “real life”, but when I’m running I love to look flashy- the brighter and crazier the print the better!

  102. 102

    I must admit, my favorite thing to watch while working out is the most mindless TV. I tried starting Homeland the other day while running and I kept stopping my run to concentrate harder on what was going on – running fail. I love stuff on E! – my new favorite, Guiliana and Bill 🙂 I admit!

    Allison says:

    I am all about functionality and comfort! I mean I HATE working out in something that moves around or I have to adjust every 5 seconds. I also look for things that are cute… yes I want to look cute in the clothes so people will focus on them and not the sweaty mess I am!

    JJ says:

    The most important piece of my workout wardrobe is my sports bra. I go with fit over look. It’s so important to protect the girls while I am working out and I really hate it if they flop around. 🙂 I also really love to watch the Kardashians while on the treadmill. It makes me feel better about watching them if I am actually doing something productive at the same time!

    I really only wear headphones now when on the treadmill. I did wear them when I lifted at the gym, but at home I can just turn on the stereo 😉

    Hailey says:

    In workout gear, I look for something that makes me feel good and holds everything in. I just wear apple headphones with a bandana to hold them in place because I also have small ears. Definitely looking for new ones. While on cardio equipment, I just listen to my ipod. There’s never a specific time for me to workout and music powers me through.

  111. 111
    Brittany says:

    My fav thing to watch is espn sports news only because its past paced and I don’t need to know what they are saying. Funny thing is that I absolutely will not watch it at home with my husband because I think its boring.

    Cute–because it’s just more fun that way!

    In terms of finding the perfect workout apparal, I love bras with pads (nothing worse than smooshed boobs in a gym full of men!) and then tops and tanks that stay put and dont always ride up when I’m running or using weights.

    Those shoes are super cute though, especially the orange and grey pair!

    1. Workout gear musts = good compression and/or flattering fit, BRIGHT fun colors, and washing up well!

    You look seriously great in that red Reebok tank. The color is amazing on you. And I agree that it’s super cute! I love the back of it.

    What I look for in workout clothes is color (loves brights!) and of course fit (nothing that rides up or falls down) and my big thing is seams…I hate unnecessary seams that rub against me when I’m working out so I try to get stuff that is seamless or as seamless as possible.

    Amanda says:

    I always use my headphones for running but I have small ears like you! I have such a hard time finding a pair that don’t keep falling out during my runs. It is super annoying when I have to keep adjusting them. These headphones sound awesome! I would really love the shoes too because I’m definitely in need of a new pair.

    morgan says:

    ok maybe its not a sport activity but I wear my beatz headphones when I am doing household chores the most! usually when I work out I don’t wear headphones but on the weekends when I am cleaning they are my best friends (either my house is too big or I have a cleaning problem- its up for debate!) 🙂
    my favorite of all time must-have look-for in workout clothes is long length tops! I am long waisted and I can’t handle the back/tummy flash every time I bend over. I found some Lululemon that work well but I can’t even concentrate if I think I am flashing people. I am also picky about material- it has to wash well and be soft- can’t do itchy or cotton-type fabric. Again, hooked on Lulu- love the Silverescent fabric (I often wear them to work, to workout and to teach in- all in the same day!) its that anti-stink factor….
    my favorite thing on your blog (besides the awesome foodie ideas!) is the workout gear- I get great ideas and tips from you, which is great for someone who has to order everything in as we don’t have stores that carry anything like that within 180 miles- thanks!

  156. 156
    Michelle says:

    I usually look for the style and the material in my workout clothes. I only wearing running capris for my bottoms and my tops I like to find its bright colors. And I really only wear headphones for runs. I don’t like it when I’m doing weights because the cord gets in my way lol.

  157. 157
    Kristen says:

    The first thing that draws me to workout clothes is how they look, of course, but then it is all about the comfort. Do they hold everything in or do I look like a big ol’ jiggly mess? HA! I also need to make sure that it is not going to slide off and leave me looking like a plumber…that’s just annoying!

    I wear headphones when I run and, like you, I must have tiny ears because the ones that come standard are usually very uncomfortable for me. I had a lot of problems with the earbuds slipping out of my ear too and that just ruins the running mojo almost immediately. I switched to Yurbuds last year and have not been disappointed for the most part…but who can turn down Bose quality sound AND all those features along with buds that don’t fall out? Yeah – mommy wants!

    Casey says:

    I looked for ones that are comfortable and then make sure they look somewhat cute!!

    Breanna says:

    The thing I look for most in workout clothes is their ability to wick sweat. If I end a workout and my shirt is wet then I probably won’t want to wear it again, since there are so many shirts out there that are amazing at wicking. The second most important thing is how comfortable are the straps (tank top) and the armpits. 🙂

  160. 160
    Ashley says:

    Being tall I always look for longer tops that are soft and light weight. I usually look for solid colored tops and bottoms that are extremely bright or black:) I use my headphones for EVERYTHING in the gym and running on the road. I have them with me 24/7!!!!

    When searching for workout clothes I am super picky. I like the tank to be long enough that it doesn’t ride up when I am running or jumping. I like the sports bra to have a little padding just so nothing crazy happens.

    Alyssa says:

    I look for bendy-wendy work out clothes! No restrictions please, and must be dry fit . Also, tops have to be long, and pants have to snug fit and flattering waistline. I usually wear my headphones (Yurbuds are my favorite) when I’m using cardio equipment at the gym and when running or walking the dogs outside. I usually watch the news when I’m on the treadmill (well, I read the subtitles and listen to my music). Most of my morning runs happen before 6 a.m. so there aren’t too many options – other than infomercials!

  167. 167
    Brianna says:

    Comfort and fit are the big ones, aka no chafing! Looks are 3rd on the list because even though I may be sweating up a storm, which is not pretty, I want to look good doing it =)

  168. 168
    Apryle says:

    Pockets! I am obsessed with pockets that have zippers to keep my ipod, key, snack, etc safe while I run. It is kind of frustrating that women’s workout clothes (actually all women’s clothes in general) don’t seem to have pockets very often. And of course it has to be really comfortable. I wear headphones when I go for runs in safe areas, streets that have sidewalks, trails, the beach. Anywhere where I don’t have to be constantly worrying about traffic.
    I don’t watch TV on cardio equip. That may change if I get a treadmill for Christmas 😉

    Workout wear? Hmm…
    Usually a combination of things. Moisture wicking fabric is a must, so when I see a style I like and a color I like, that is the next thing I look for. It is a must have! Admittedly, price is a major factor for me, too. Oh, and I am really picky about the straps on any tanks or sports bras I wear! Not sure why they put them so high sometimes…High enough to rub on your neck – Ugh!

    I look for comfort and support when choosing my workout clothes. There is nothing worse than pulling up your workout pants during class or running on the “dreadmill” and having your Ta Ta’s bounce all. I am an huge Athleta Fan, love their workout clothes because they are comfortable and they have support. When it comes to Shoes I am crazy for Mizunos, Yes I am afraid to even put my foot in another shoe. Socks are huge for me, Balega socks are the Best, they wick like no other. My gym just started offering Crossfit Classes and I am wearing out my Mizunos so please please pick me would love to be a Reebok Fan and brag on their shoes also. Love your blog, you crack me up and always motivate me to keep going.

    My first criteria for workout clothes is “inexpensive”. I’m a quantity over quality kinda girl. Then I just want them to be cute and flattering (read: padded bra).

    My workout clothes have to be comfortable most of all. I wear headphones running. Not much for TV when I work out, more of a tunes girl. Thanks!

    Workout wear – definitely comfort comes first! Then fun colors. I love to watch my Cleveland Browns on the TV while working out. It goes especially fast if they’re winning (which doesn’t happen often, unfortunately)

    Emily says:

    I’m 6 ft tall so I’m always looking for workout tops that are long enough and don’t ride up! In the past I’ve always looked for shoes that were the cutest or had the best color options, but I’ve learned I need to start looking more into comfort! These Reebok’s look like they could fit both of those standards!! My favorite thing to watch on the treadmill is The View!

    I look for somewhat reasonably priced workout clothes, even though I LOVE lululemon, but that is a special treat 🙂 I like ones that fit fairly snug, don’t start smelling after a few washes, and that stay put when running. I am a sucker for music when running so have in headphones most of the time when I am outside running, unless I am running with my toddler in the BOB – I keep them out and try to chat/sing to her. Sweet giveaway 🙂

    Amanda N says:

    In workout gear I look for quality, comfort, fit, and of course price. I am all for paying for for quality but I’m not willing to lose an arm and a leg. Fit is also very important to me because where I am short (4’10”) a lot of gear doesn’t fit (or sometimes function) as it would on a taller person.

  242. 242
    Angie says:

    I have a hard time spending money on myself. So I base my workoout clothes on the selection off the clearance rack. Awful, yes but honest! I wear my headphones to jog however right now I don’t have any. My MP3 broke and I haven’t replaced it.

  243. 243
    Jennifer says:

    #1 is comfort and functionality! Neon/fun colors are a huge bonus! I wear headphones for any cardio that’s not in a class setting…must. have. distraction! And my fav distrating show is kelly + michael or kathie lee + hoda!

  244. 244
    Andrea S. says:

    Definitely go for style and the fit. I like cool backs on training tops (like the one Reebok just sent you! LUCKY!) – usually solid colors so they go with more! I like my tops to be on the longer side so they stay down when running or doing TurboKick! 🙂 Sweet baby Jesus I hope I win these shoes!!!!!!!!!!!!! 🙂

    Emily says:

    What do you look for in good workout wear? Comfort, fun colors, good bra pads, etc.

    I am currently a cadet at the US Coast Guard Academy so we don’t actually get a choice of workout gear aside from shoes. When I’m at home however, I definitely go for comfort and length; the worst feeling ever is running in shorts that are too long or trying to do core or circuit work in something that’s baggy enough to get caught up and slow you down. I also look for aeration, because though you may be proud to look drenched in sweat at the end of a workout, it doesn’t always smell so nice if the fabric just doesn’t breath.

    What activity do you wear headphones for?

    I can really only handle headphones on the treadmill. Otherwise I have the same issue as you do with them falling out of my ears on an outside run. When I am outside however, I try to pick a nice location so that my surroundings do the entertaining for me, headphones and TV shows aside.

    -I look for workout clothes that are dri-fit. If it’s not, I won’t even pick it up.
    -I wear headphones for all of my working out unless I’m taking a class.
    -I like to watch anything on the Food Network while I’m doing cardio. I figure maybe it’ll provide some motivation.

    Cindy Lewis says:

    I look for workout clothes that have support and are comfortable. I do not like having to stop during a workout to pull up my pants, drives me crazy. I also have to have support so when I run on the “dreadmill” my ta’ta’s don’t bounce all over. Another fetish are my socks, I have to have great socks that wick and Balega brand I have found to be the best yet. I am a huge Mizuno fan, yes I am afraid to put my foot in any other shoe. I have just started taking crossfit classes at our gym and am wearing out my Mizuno’s. Pick me Pick me, I would love to try these Reebok shoes for crossfit. Maybe I will be a REENO fan (Reebok/Mizuno) fan if I win. Your blog cracks me up, Love it and you keep me motivated. Thank You

    Things I look for in workout gear? Two things: padded bras because its not polite to point and media pockets. Otherwise I am a mess with my ipod. Seriously, I cannot handle holding things.
    And I hit the treadmill in the morning so I watch Good Morning America. Favorite show.

    Stephanie says:

    I watch Sponge Bob Square Pants on the cardio equipment at the Y (and I am not the least embarrassed). I don’t have to pay attention to the plot lines as I have seen most of the episodes and it is distracting but not nauseating like cooking shows during hard intervals.

    Kandis says:

    When I buy workout wear I go first on fit/comfort and then fun colors. I run a lot so I need my bras to be very supportive and the bottoms to not chafe or have any uncomfortable areas. When it comes to the outside pieces I tend to be drawn to brighter colors to keep it fun.

    Activity wear definitely for comfort (ie no bouncy bounce with the sports bra but let’s not smash them either). Headphones for laptop only right now as I don’t have an iPod. Any show that keeps my attention/suspense is good during cardio equipment definitely no news

  271. 271

    i have learned in looking for work out gear it is all about comfort and functionality. you can be as cute as they come, but if your bottoms are falling off, or your head phones are constantly falling out, it makes it not so cute. i never care what i look like anymore, but how the gear actually fits. now i’m not gonna say cute colors and patterns hurt, but if i had to choose one over the other give me boring gray sweatpants that will actually stay on while i’m jumping around.

    those shoes are SUPER cute though 🙂

    Gillian says:

    Comfort definitely number 1 priority in workout wear. After that style/color come into play. If you look good you feel good and want to workout! I usually reserve headphones for gym or when traveling as I like to let my mind wander when running outside but also I like to stay alert (don’t need to be spaced out singing to Madonna and get whacked by a car!) My favorite show to watch while on cardio equipment is Sex and the City. The gym I belonged to when I lived in Boston had a ton of episodes on DVD to choose from. Love those ladies! Hope I win something in your fun giveaways!

    This will sound as cheap as possible, but when it comes to good workout wear, I look for good brands that are dirt cheap at clearance. I’m also a large fan of neon sport bras.
    When it comes to headphones, I wear them for every part of life, especially treadmill running which transitions into my next answer! Cardio equipment = cartoons, always.

    Okay, so work out clothes requirements…
    1. NO WEDGIES! Not only is it super unattractive to pick wedgies in public, they don’t feel too good either.
    2. No chaffing.. under the armpit. I’ve never had work out clothes with pads because I don’t even know if you could see my nipples with a microscope BUT, i’d totally take it.
    3. They have to make me look/feel good. I’ve heard you work out better if you think you look good (:

    Favorite thing to watch… anything that keeps my attention. Kelly & Michael for sure (how cute is Kelly?! Obsessed), Friday Night LIghts, Desperate Housewives, etc etc etc

    Headphones are a necessity at the gym… I also use them when I take the babies I nanny for on walks. Great way to tune into pandora or catch up on whatever it is you need to catch up on.

    Leigh S. says:

    For workout clothes, I choose depending on where, when (what season/weather), and for what I’ll be using them. For example, if I want an “outdoors” clothes item, I really like to look for UV protection. As runners who ostensibly love the outdoors, we all should be mindful of sun exposure. I also look at cost, because I’m on a very tight budget, then obviously quality, comfort, and last (least important) style/color. I have never worked out at the gym on a treadmill until today, coincidentally. So, since I don’t have a “favorite” yet, I watched the local news at first, then some of the Price is Right. I needed something “visual” that I could watch without listening. At home on the treadmill, I tend to watch the news or “re-runs” (pun intended!) of various marathons and/or track and field events or, failing those, other sports I enjoy, including soccer (football) and college basketball.

  309. 309
  310. 310

    I look for clothes that keep me warm in the cold or cool in the heat and are also non-invasive for whatever movements I’m doing that day. i.e. – power cleans, running, and jump rope are not good things when wearing boxers. And of course comfort is key!

    Headphones at the gym and if I’m running alone or in a race. Usually when I run 5 miles with friends we just talk, so no head phones.

    OMGosh- the competition is getting stiff at # 348! As Lloyd or the other guy in Dumb in Dumber, ” so you’re saying I have a chance!” I love color- when I work out I love good shoes and I wear capris so I don’t have to worry about how my legs look when I run, since I have a little bit of chafing between my thighs if I wear shorts 🙁 Working on that! I like watching anything except the news-I like Kelly & Michael when they have a good guest, but I mainly run and watch everyone work out- that motivates me! Thanks for being so generous!

    Wow! By the time i scrolled to the bottom i forgot the question! Lol

    I hate anything that “cuts you in two”, love compression and support…like to match but lately ive been a little too mix and match colorful…need to get it together.
    These shoes are awesome…have the grey/orange already…NEED another pair!

    I look for anti chaffing aspects! Minimal piping on tanks and shorts that don’t ride up!

    Good workout gear means a long torso on my tops so I don’t have to keep yanking it down. I use earbuds on the treadmill, running outdoors and during races. The orange shoes are super sweet

    I look for quality in workout clothes. If it’s running related (it always is) I look for something lightweight and breathable.

    I love fun colors when looking for workout shoes but comfort and correct fit are most important! I also love to watch “The Price is Right” when I’m on the treadmill! Ha!

    Hi there!
    For workout clothes I mainly look for comfort, but also bright colors. I feel like you can be a little crazier with your workout clothes than you can in real life! Ha I wonder if anyone else thinks like this?! I especially love bright fluorescent sneakers. Perhaps it’s mental but I feel a little faster when I’m running in flashy colors!
    Also I wear headphones to run most of the time when running solo or training, but I never wear them for races or when running with a friend.
    Hope I win the shoes!
    Thank you
    Jill

    I try to go for awesome colorful things (my fav) but of course comfort wins out. But if I can get both, score!

    I look for comfort…I used to wear cotton capris all the time but since I tried compression gear I haven’t looked back! So comfortable!

    I have the same problem as you-small ears (I call mine “baby ears”)! So I also look for similar things when purchasing new headphones-small and also the thing that goes over the ear. These look awesome!
