There are so many fitness clothing brands out there. I’m sharing my top 3 that wear on a daily basis. Plus, a fun giveaway with one of the brands!
My Favorite Fitness Clothing Brands + A Giveaway
WELCOME to the Capable & Strong Series!
This series is all about strength training. We will be chatting about things from reasons why women should lift to suggested supplements to building a strong body and mind! And you can expect strength training workouts!
Good Morning and Happy Monday…and April!
Today, we are chatting fitness clothing brands, specifically, my favorites.
There are SO MANY out there and honestly, I’m pretty picky, especially when it comes to leggings. Stay tuned because I have a giveaway at the end!!! Let’s just dive on in.
I discovered Athleta in early 2016. I love their athleisure options for one. The Crisscross Sweatshirt might be in my top 5 favorite long sleeve shirts I’ve ever owned. The Chaturanga Legging is my favorite! Sturdy fabric, but I’m still able to move well!

I love Lululemon, but not nearly as much as Mr. Burpee! Lululemon leggings just get my lower half. The leggings fit like a glove. I’m a huge fan of the Wunder Under (Hi-Rise), All the Right Places and Inspire Tight. I recently splurged on the Fast & Free 7/8 Tight for my birthday. I tend to only buy Lululemon when things are on sale because #budget, but I love the quality.
I found Senita via Instagram and I was instantly hooked. They quality pieces at a very reasonable price! Finding fitness clothing with pockets for your phone is so difficult! Senita has tops, bottoms and sports bras with built in pockets for your phone/iPod!
While I can be a bit of a snob when it comes to leggings, I tend to neglect my selection of tops. I decided to change that when I found Senita. The Dual Tank and Boyfriend Tank were my first purchases. Both fit like a gem. I just ordered the Tie Back Tank in gray and I’m obsessed! If you caught my Insta stories this weekend, you saw me sporting this top. It’s so soft and comfy. Plus, it shows off my back and arm muscles.One of my prerequisites for workout tops: does it make my upper body look good? All the tops make the cut.
Another factor for me, aside from a top being cute, is functionality. Yes, I love a cute top, but if it doesn’t let me move freely and do my workout without having to constantly adjust, then I ain’t got time for it. Really, the same goes with bottoms, which is why I’m a bit snobby.
When I put on the Rio Short, I wasn’t convinced. I’d tried shorts like this before and while I love that my quads are strong, these type of shorts always make me look like my legs are in sausage casings. After a workout Sunday, I realized I definitely like them. I used to wear shorts for workouts all the time, but I was forever hiking them up during squats! With the Rio, no hiking occurred! And PHONE POCKET!!!
I’ve partnered with Sentia to give 1 lucky reader a $50 gift card!! The entry period starts today and is open until Thursday, April 6 at midnight. I’ll announce the winner on Friday! Entry details are below.

How was your weekend?! Friday was gloomy and rainy. The Hubs and I had dinner with the in-laws and I just relaxed that night. Caught up on some shows. Saturday, I got out of bed at 9am. It was glorious! I made my way to the gym for a decent workout. I remembered that a couple weeks ago I told myself I needed to eat before Saturday morning workouts. I did not, so that workout wasn’t the best. After the gym, I made pancakes and started some cleaning. The rest of the day included Oscar walks (it was finally nice outside), a grocery store trip, a little blog work and a little house cleaning. Sunday was jam packed with setup at church, another grocery trip, shooting photos and doing a workout because I didn’t have anyone show up for class. I got home and did food prep for 2 hours. The Hubs decided we needed a date night, so we went out to eat, walked Oscar, chatted and finished the night with me falling asleep to Psych…at 9:30pm.
Solid weekend and I’ve got good things planned for this week!
SO, TELL ME:
What are you fav fitness clothing brands?
