I definitely notice a difference in how I feel when wearing an old, ill-fitted tee with baggy sweats vs. my sleek, low-rise, black yoga pants with a bright colored, fitted workout tank. I love my one pair of pants so much that I now have three pairs! Same on the tops.
When working toward that summer, swimsuit ready bod, feeling great in your fitness clothes can be a big motivator.
Gap Body (Level 3) has a wide selection of high-tech & high-design tanks, tees, capris, shorts, pants, sports bras and more!
Here are just a few of my finds.
The GapFit Motion seamless racerback tank ($29.95) is from the newest collection of fitness wear. It comes in lots of colors. It’s design is all about performance. The fabric is moisture wicking and has mesh panels for ventilation.
The tanks are fitted, yet have the flexibility you need to move with you.
The tank also comes in a GapFit Motion cami-style with a built-in shelf bra.
If you prefer having a little more coverage, there is also a GapFit Motion tee ($34.95), featuring the same technology and a similar design.
Fashion meets function with the fitted, GapFit fitted drawstring shorts ($26.95). I love the drawstring detail! The shorts have the same “Perform” fabric as the above tops and are also designed to prevent chafing. One of the managers at Gap tells me these are her go-to running shorts.
Prefer to show a little less leg? Check out these higher rise, 3-quarter length nylon and spandex capris ($49.95). “Designed for your most rigorous workouts, the gFast capris fit like a glove to enable the widest range of movement,” according to Gap.
These full-length workout pants ($54.95) are from the gDance line. The slimming style helps to lengthen your silhouette.
If you’re not sure what style or material is best for you, it pays to ask questions. The sales associates are not only knowledgable about what styles may be flattering for you, they can also help you pick the best clothing for the kind of workouts you’re doing. Chances are, they can help you discover something you may not have tried on your own!
