If you walked into our house or peeked into our closets, cars, etc., you might night notice a reoccurring theme… Fitness gear..
Cycling gear, swim gear, run shoes, hats, jackets, bikes, gym bags (um, I don’t leave home without my Livewell360 bag), and more.
We treat fitness gear like precious cargo because we really couldn’t do our jobs without it, ya know? Okay I could still be “sherpa wife” in the kitchen but you get my point.
Our fitness gear (fit gear) and clothing need to be of good quality in order to meet the daily training demands. And it doesn’t hurt if it’s some what stylish too. I could always use a little style.
Here’s where I talk about new love for Albion —-> Yes, stylish fitness gear and apparel. You see, a few weeks ago Albion offered to send me a few pieces of apparel to demo. As a fitness instructor, I’m always up for trying out new fitness clothes, so naturally I said yes. But I also told them I am very peculiar about my fitness gear and that would not be comfortable reviewing it here (on cotter crunch) unless I, myself, would wear it. They kindly agreed and sent me a few items.
I chose the timp vest, love racer, and illusion capris.
When they first arrived I was bit skeptical. I didn’t think they would fit me that well. I have a long torso, arms, and legs. Things just fit me different. But I was pleasantly surprised to have them all fit me quite well. I wore all three pieces over the course of 2 weeks and felt very comfortable in each. See picture of me above (on BOSU) in the capris. I washed them, dried, them, and the materials stayed the same. That’s a huge bonus for us! Remember, we need durable gear! And durable CUTE gear for me of course.
Needless to say, I’m glad I was skeptical only to be proven wrong. The only time I like to be wrong.
Okay, so now that I was proven wrong, how about I share a $100 giveaway for Albion Fit. Makes up for it, right?
With that $100 you can buy any of their apparel, including swimsuits! Did I mention they have swimsuits? Cute ones too!
