Fitness Swellness: Forever21 Activewear

HI_Look 4_4277_R1

New from Forever21? Activewear. From tights and sportsbras to tanks and capris, in a mix of solids and prints in sweat-wicking technical fabrics. All of it, like everything else from this fast-fashion chain, is super easy on the pocketbook: pieces range from $10.80 to $33.80.

I tested out the gear last week over a fun session of Skyrobics at Skyzone (an indoor trampoline park). Comfy and does the job, but as for wear and tear, I’ll have to put it through several uses and laundry cycles to determine that. Do try on the items first — sizes tend to run small, but it also depends on the style, too. I do love the playful touches (I need that charming heart-print sports bra!) and the functional details (a hole in the hoody so you can wear your hair up in a high ponytail!).

What better way to stay motivated with your get-fit resolution (don’t tell me you’ve already given up??) than some inexpensive new gear? A few of my fave F21 Activewear pieces:

Forever21 Space Dyed Workout Shorts

Space Dyed Workout Shorts, $9.80.

Forever21 Reflective Trimmed Performance Capris

Reflective-trimmed Performance Capris, $23.80.

Forever21 Medium Impact heart print sports bra

Sculpt yourself some sexy curves


I met with Reebok International Trainer Julie Marsland last week to learn about the new Reebok Easytone apparel and took the opportunity to ask her for a few equipment-free exercises that’d maximize working out in the gear (you may recall I featured the apparel and its ResisTone Bands in Holiday Swellness) for a lean, sexy bod.
