I’m always on the hunt for athletic wear that doesn’t cost and arm and a leg, but performs well. I beat the hell out of my workout wear. I love my Lululemon items because they last forever, yet I find it a little pricy for what it is, and everyone at my gym wears it. So I normally find items here and there. Look in my drawer and you will find items from Nike, Target, Fila, Lululemon, Joe Fresh and Stella McCartney for Adidas. As you can see, I’m all over the place. New to my drawer, however, is my new favorite, GapFit.
GapFit is Gap’s high-performance active wear line which offers a huge selection designed for any type of workout offered at a great price. From running to yoga to cycling – GapFit features a collection of active wear pants in fits that complement anybody type and activity. All the pants are designed with comfort and mobility in mind and feature a proprietary fabric comparable to fabrics found in pants twice the price. Key fits include:
gFast ($49.95 – 54.95), a fitted legging perfect for running that comes in regular and capri lengths.
gBalance ($39.50), designed for yoga and pilates, it gives you freedom of movement.
gFlex ($49.95 – $54.95), is the most versatile pant that fits your needs wherever the day may take you.
As a retired spinning instructor I can tell you finding cycling shorts without padding was not easy. For $30 was unheard of! Where were these when I was spinning?
GapFit also offers a selection of amazing tops including the Motion and Breathe collections. Motion features a high-tech, seamless fabric and comes in tank, short sleeve and long sleeve styles. Breathe includes v-neck tees and racer back tanks in a light weight, moisture wicking fabric. The GapFit line also offers sports bras from light to high-impact support ranging from $20-36.
I prefer my workout wear to have some design elements so I adore this top, which also comes in other colors Hey, if you find something you love at a great price, I say buy it in every color!
For outerwear, the Elements Hoodie ($54.95) is a cozy outer layer that is warm yet breathable, and is water repellent.
