When I saw an ad for Fabletics(<-my referral link, full disclosure), a monthly workout outfit subscription service, I was intrigued. It is a premium fitness apparel brand developed by Kate Hudson. I am hoping to get back into running, as I have a goal of running the Disney Marathon in January 2015. I purged a ton of workout clothes that no longer fit, and I thought Fabletics would be the perfect way to get excited about hitting the gym again.
I got a great deal on my first outfit (50% off) plus I ordered a pair of camo print capri leggings. $56 for all the pieces. I received my first outfit not long after. I was really impressed by the quality of the items! The camo print capris are my absolute favorite, and I can't wait to wear them. They are thick but stretchy, and I didn't have to pay Lululemon pricing.
I'm impressed by Fabletics so far. You get Target-esque prices for more premium offering activewear, which I definitely appreciate. The pink top felt a bit too big, and the other leggings weren't the length I was expecting, so I contacted Fabletics to return them. I exchange those pieces for a new outfit, at no cost to me; the leggings even have a snake print accent on the side:
I am legitimately excited about this subscription, because it has already gotten me motivated to train. I don't think I need to subscribe forever (or I'll need a new closet just for activewear) but this should get me on the right track and feeling great. You can skip a month or three if you want, you just have to log into your account to do it! (Note: I'm not counting workout clothes in my Budgeting Bloggers budget yet, because I can't wear them to work and it's for the marathon training. I might change that in a few months, but we'll see.)
Oh, and here are the new running shoes I just got! I went to my local Fleet Feet for a custom fitting/consultation and these are where I ended up. I also got some inserts for my arches that I'm trying out, based on my consultation.
|New shoes, and Fabletics pants!|
