Working out has always been such an important part of my life – I started running regularly when I joined my middle school cross country team, and from there I learned what an amazing stress reliever exercise is. Today I use my workouts as an escape and a time to clear my head from the stresses of college. As amazing as exercise is, nothing ruins my workout quicker than the wrong outfit. Hear me out – this isn’t about looking good at the gym, it’s about feeling good. And workout clothes that chafe, ride up, and cling will end my workout before it’s really even got started.
I’ve suffered through that fate more times than I care to remember until I found brands with quality I could count on. I recently picked out a few pieces from the Mountain Athletics from The North Face, and I was absolutely blown away.
When I work out I typically prefer to do so in just a sports bra, but my campus gym has a strict ‘no midriff’ policy, so I opted for the Printed T Lite Tank because it uses FlashDryXD, so it wicks away any moisture and is super high quality. Beyond functionality of the top, I just really love how it looks. Between the color and the pattern, I fell in love instantly.
For my outdoor workouts when I don’t have to abide by any dress code, I opted for the Bounce-B-Gone Bra. Going in I had no clue what to expect, but this sports bra truly lives up to it’s name. I don’t know how North Face managed to do it, but this bra is everything you could hope for and more. Due to it’s supportive, compressive, and high-stretch fabric it is super comfortable and keeps everything stable without feeling tight. Beyond that the fabric is super breathable, so you never feel gross or sticky wearing it.
The North Face’s Dynamix Leggings are phenomenal as well. I’m definitely a leggings girl, as I can’t stand the feeling of fabric brushing against my legs as I work out. These are by far the nicest pair I own in fit, comfort, and style. The material stretches, flexes and moves with my body seamlessly, no matter how intense the workout.
What I really love about this line is the functionality of the clothing – each piece is durable enough to handle the most rigorous workout, fashionable enough to wear to class, and comfortable enough to sleep in.
While I only tested out three pieces, I am am dying to get my hands on the rest of the gear! Some of my favorite pieces that I don’t own (yet!) are the Plyo Long-Sleeve Crew, the Pulse Jacket, and the Ma-X Shorts. There are a ton of amazing pieces for both women and men and I recommend that you check them out!
I have teamed up with North Face to bring one lucky reader a $500 gift card so they can pick out some of the pieces mentioned here!
