About a week ago I attended one of the most glam fitness events — hosted by Under Armour’s women’s division at Exhale Spa at the Gansevoort Hotel in NYC. When I normally think of Under Armour (UA) I picture sports gear for football players and other athletes predominantly male. I can honestly say that after this event my thoughts have changed.
I love a good workout, and even though I don’t wear makeup or do my hair to workout, that doesn’t mean I want to look all frumpy. The best workout gear is one that is comfortable, makes the workout simple and looks cute. Finding a combination of all three is difficult but Under Armour has nailed it!
Walking into Exhale spa I was greeted and handed an UA Shatter Tote (which is perfect for traveling or storing all your workout gear and equipment). In my tote bag was a complete workout outfit from head to toe. I received the cutest sneakers ever which I’m obsessed with. They are the neon pink UA Spine RPM Running Shoe. My other two favorite items were the UA StudioLux Tight Capri and the Armour Bra. The tights have o be the most comfortable tights to work out in. They’re described as “lightweight with a 4-way stretch construction to improves mobility and dry time”. And the bra is just as amazing. Instead of choosing from small, medium or large — UA allows you to pick your sports bra like you would an ordinary bra (by strap and cup size). The support is unbelievable.There’s no way I can go back to wearing an ordinary sports bra after working out in this.
After suiting up myself and the other guests met at the studio space where we took a 45 minute long boot camp class. The class was intense and I felt sore immediately and stayed that way for days to come. After the workout we were treated to salad, sushi and the most delicious smoothies. And how could I forget the complimentary massage too!
