Last July I told myself that I was going to take my health and fitness serious. Since then I’ve signed up for two gyms, an African centered dance class, and kick boxing. One silly thing that keeps me motivated (besides these gains) is feeling good about how I look. When I feel good and know my clothes look good, I’m just a little more enthusiastic about working out.
So as expected, I’m excited about Ellie Activewear giving me the opportunity* to preview their latest subscription box! Their business model is simple. For $49.95, you’ll receive 5 pieces that support an active lifestyle. Although it’s a subscription box, one thing that stands out to me is the option to pass on certain months.
Every month you’re given the option to “preview” a box. If you’re not excited about it, you have five days before shipment to pass on it. I received the April box. Included in my subscription box was a low impact sports bra, leggings, a top, a magnetic towel, and cute hair ties.
I didn’t get a chance to do any heavy weight training in the outfit, but I wore the leggings and bra to work. Although it’s a low impact bra, to my surprise I was adequately supported. And after my 8 hour shift, I hit the studio for a zumba class.(sidenote: the magnetic towel is cute because of the little magnets in the corners. You can literally hang it on anything magnetic!)
The leggings have the right amount of stretch. You don’t feel like your being suffocated but it also stays put. (AND it’s not see through!) The only thing I didn’t like was the length of/ how tight the leg openings were on the leggings. It’s not the biggest deal though. I’m only 5’1. I have stumpy little legs and most leggings are too long for me anyway.
For the price, it’s a really good deal. I’ve seen activewear bottoms go for over $20 alone. So being able to get an entire outfit, plus other goodies for 49.95 makes it a great price point.
