Its the New Year and you are all ready to tackle your health and fitness goals... but you need the right clothes and don't know where to start. Or perhaps you got the clothes and showed up to your workout only to find them falling down and not fitting correctly. Here is the problem...there are a LOT of active wear companies out there, but more than that... there are so many different types of exercise. It really makes a difference when you are outfitted correctly for the correct activity. When you feel good, you perform better.
During my cancer journey, my story got out there and active wear companies sent me their stuff in droves to help support me (and it didn't hurt that I had a big following so it also helped their brand be seen) So I have literally worn HUNDREDS of different brands. During that time, I found a few favorites. So I am going to share my 3 favorite active wear brands for my 3 favorite different types of activity to help you choose your gear. This is 2020! Let's deck you out so you SHOW UP for your workouts! Feel good...do good!
For me it is all about compression when it comes to cardio gear.
ESPECIALLY in sports bras and leggings. I do a lot of plyometrics and nothing bugs me more than my pants falling down, or my boobs popping out of my bra during that final set of burpees. Yvette Sports does not budge and it offers extra support through compression. They do have different levels of active wear too, making them a go to brand, but my favorite level of theirs is their high impact compression line. If burpees are involved - Yvette Sports is what I reach for.

It is no secret that I am a Yogi and I have tried HUNDREDS of brands. Which is why all the pictures here are yoga pictures, because hey, this is me! While people that are prone to marketing and getting the "name brand" flock to lululemon, which in my opinion is subpar and overrated ... I flock to Musesonly, which I prefer hands down to lululemon. Musesonly checks all of my boxes when it comes to comfortable yoga wear. Never see through. They fit in all the right areas, and never fold down during my vinyasa. They are classy and feminine like I like to feel during my practice. They even have styles with pockets! They also have styles for TALL girls like me (I am 5'10" and that is HUGE. So if you want to start yoga and need gear... go to muses. It doesn't matter if you are short, tall, or in between, they have something for you. Use code christi10 at checkout for 10% off.
3. Weights/ Cross-fit
Leg day... that means lunges. I don't prefer to wear compression wear during this. I like lightweight gear that stays put and that is what Vastitch offers. They are my squat and lunge go-to because they stay put but you don't feel them at all. So lightweight and also so cute! They are always current with the seasons which makes them fun. Who doesn't like to wear Christmas leggings during Christmas, Or Halloween Leggings during Halloween? Seasonal leggings are FUN! For variety and fit I choose Vastitch for leg day.
