prAna Style Spring Edition + My thoughts on 17.1

Through my ambassadorship with FitApproach, I was given the opportunity to review a few pieces from prAna's new spring line. This post was sponsored by prAna and Fit Approach. As always opinions 100% my own.

Hello is this thing on?! Yup, I took a little impromptu blogging break last week. Man did it feel good. If you're a blogger I suggest trying it some time. But let's get down to business.... workout clothes and 17.1.

Hi my name is Tiara and I'm a workout clothes hoarder. Yep, I just can't stop. Maybe it's because I workout more that I should admit or simply because I can wear yoga pants to work. My boss doesn't mind. HA if you didn't know I work from home. BTW...Yoga pants are never office appropriate unless you work in the fitness industry.

Moving on... I recently teamed up with prAna to help spread the word about their awesome spring line. I must confess I've never previously owned anything prAna! I know, I know. But after rocking the Chetan Capri leggings the last few weeks I'm a fan.

leggings / tank / shoes
Oh, and they are high waisted without being over the top! I recently discovered a love for high waisted legging... yes late to the game. Why high waisted? Not only are they super flattering, but in general they stay in place during box jumps, burpees, running, etc.! I should note I've only lifted in my prAna leggings. Fit Guide: I'm 5'4" 130 lbs and am wearing a small tank and leggings


With all the snow I can't help but dream of spring and summer. The Mika Strappy Top doesn't offer a ton of support for high impact days, but it's ideal for yoga, lounging around the house, or even layering over a bikini top. I can totally see myself rocking this tank to the beach or hiking to an alpine lake. Bottom line... the color is on point and it's made for low impact days.


But that back....


I'm a sucker for sports bras or tanks with a fun back. Hello I get to show off those muscles I've worked really hard for. prAna has more than workout clothes! I'm currently loving this, this and this. As a mom on the go I could see myself living in these pieces running to playdates, traveling or just hanging out at the house.


Let's talk about crossfit because 17.1 had me like whoa! While I didn't finish like I was hoping to I still Rx'd the workout and finished with a decent score. I have to remember how far I've come since I seriously started training in June. The plan was to redo it today, but since my back is STILL tight it's a one and done. I figure I'll make up some points when muscle ups are programed. Can't win them all :) Anyone else do 17.1? Love or hate it? Personally, I liked the WOD until I hit 40 DB snatches then I started to cry on the inside. One down and four to go!

Did you sign up for the crossfit open?

  3. Super cute - as are Emerson's photo bombs in the background! <3

    I am a big fan of the high waist, too. Keeps everything covered and in place no matter which way you jump, twist, etc :)

  7. Ha, yes . . . I did crossfit 17.1 , my body is still reminding me! I did as RX and made it to 44 of the last 50 set. I like dumbell snatches but never have done 35# and never had done 144 in one workout (and I agree with your crying inside statement). BTW, LOVE that top, prAna has the cutest stufff.
