Falling in Love with Lululemon

I never knew I could love a pair of pink workout leggings — until last Monday. 

My friend, Helen, who works with Lululemon, asked me and my sweet Peachtree Roadies blogging buddy, Meg, to test drive a few new pieces. (Disclaimer y’all, Helen did gift me the clothing.) So, we all met for a class at Cyc Fitness to see how the leggings and top would stand up to the Caroline Reed (one of my fav Cyc instructors) sweat session challenge. 

I rarely wear colored leggings, but once I put this pink pair on, I thought, “Damn, I look good!” And that’s because of the “zoned compression” included in the design of these Zone In Tights — they are designed to keep you tucked in in all the right places. 

Also, the waist can be worn high (to tuck everything in) or folded. Lastly, the fabric just feels so smooth and soft against my skin. After 45 minutes of drenching sweat from indoor cycling, the leggings were just as snug against my body as they were when I first put them on. 

The Kanto Catch Me LS top I tried was also super soft and snuggly. It didn’t get much use in the Cyc class, given how quickly our bodies heated up (and they came off). But I had a chance to put it to the test in New York City this past weekend during a morning walk. Not only did it keep me nice and toasty, but I loved the thumbholes in the sleeves and the zipper pocket for cards and keys. 

The verdict? Yes, Lululemon clothing isn’t cheap (pants retail for $128 and the top is $88), but I think it’s worth it. When I look good in my workout gear, I’m more likely to get my butt out there and work it. And that’s exactly what these leggings and this top accomplished!
