I never used to be picky about my workout wear until I got into my religious workout regimen. It’s funny, I used to think, why do people care about brands and such, I can just get a regular pair of leggings and a good ol t-shirt and that’s that.
Well, I quickly learned that was not the case.
After beginning to work out about 4-5 days a week and doing a lot of cardio/strength training I began to realize how incredibly uncomfortable I was in my gear. I was sweating a ton and the fabric was not absorbing that sweat, if that makes sense. I also didn’t feel “held in” — common, you ladies know what I mean.
So I decided to make a trip to Lululemon and see what it was all about. Personally, I’m a fan of a high waisted fit. It allows me to workout and not stress about my pants falling down and everything hanging out. I also do NOT like the feeling of a heavy pant. For me, lighter is everything and I mean — who doesn’t want to feel light?!
I instantly gravitated toward the Nulux fabric – in particular the Fast and Free pant. I fell in love with it so much that I bought 5 pairs — no joke guys — and, I wear them ALL the time. In fact, I’m currently traveling and those are packed in my suitcase. Fast forward a few months and I found out that Lululemon was launching the Nulux Fast and Free CROP and I knew I had to add it to my collection.
Although I probably won’t do it justice, I’m going to try to explain how it feels.
It basically feels like you’re wearing nothing at all while getting the coverage and compression that you need. It’s like butter I swear and honestly you have to feel it for yourself. It has this crazy smooth barely-there sensation, lightweight coverage and it’s a total quick dry pant. So, my problems of sweating were not longer a problem.
When I head to the gym and do my regular intense strength training workout and I don’t wear these I instantly regret it. Theres just something that WORKS and I feel like I can push myself even further.
Moral of the story? Fabric matters. I never used to think it but now I KNOW it. I feel comfortable and confident and that’s really what we all want to feel like when it comes to working out, right?! The Fast and Free Crop comes in a variety of colors/prints AND even better — they also have the Fast and Free Bra which does everything the pant does but up top. Freakin amazing. PS – Can we talk about this cute tank that I picked to go with the look? I love the built in tie and already want a few more!
Hope you guys enjoyed this and it inspired you to get active as well!
