CrossFit & SKINS

It shouldn't be a big surprise I'm talking about CrossFit again.  You know, since I dedicate a few hours a day to working at it. If I must say so myself the hard work is paying off. #gains But what really can make or break a workout is attire. The last thing you want is a wardrobe malfunction or to be messing with pants, sports bra, etc.

Here's the thing, CrossFit is seriously amazing. I probably should write a post on how it changed my body. Why I picked CrossFit over swimming, running, etc. Instead today I'm just going to talk about gear, specifically SKINS! You know this girl loves workout clothes! So when SKINS asked if they could send me a few items I gladly said YES!

SKINS recently launched their standout DNAmic range; With bold graphics and athletic designs, the SKINS DNAmic range is where function meets fashion. Both help you to work harder, for longer and recover faster so you can up your own intensity without worrying about DOMS. #SKINSorNothing


I started rocking SKINS [c/o] back in March and honestly I don't know why I waited so long. Their Remote T Bar Tank is a top contender in my book. It's super lightweight and practically has a completely open back. It's the perfect amount of fitted and loose, if that makes sense. If you're like me you over heat just looking at the air bike. Don't even get me started about Cindy. So anytime I can find a tank that keeps me cool, it's a winner.


During 17.2 I rocked a SKINS DNAmic Women’s Speed Sports Bra for the first time. I could have ended up with a wardrobe malfunction, but I didn't. No rubbing, pulling or pinching. Just pure support and honestly it's super comfortable. I never once messed with it during the workout. Since then I've worn it multiple times and am still impressed. It's a sport bra that I happily grab for. I chalk my killer bar muscle performance to the sports bar ;) Sale Alert: There are a few currently marked down to $25! That's 50% off


But SKINS isn't just for working out. I find myself regularly rocking the Distort Packable Lightweight Jacket outside the gym. While it's probably amazing for running I find myself grabbing it when walking the dog, heading to workout, or just hanging out at the house. This ultra-lightweight, quick-dry jacket packs away into itself for easy storage, so you can keep it handy, just in case. Plus, the colors are perfect for spring or summer!


SKINS also sent me a pair of DNAMIC Compression 3/4 Tights. They feel like you're not wearing anything. While I currently have a size small I might go up a size for my round booty. They're just a tad too low in the back for my comfort level. The material is just as high quality as the other items this sizing was just on the smaller size for me.

Final verdict: Overall, I'm a SKINS fan. They meet all my standards high quality, great fit, fun colors (if that's your thing) and a decent price point. Honestly, it's a steal of a deal for the quality gear they offer.

P.S. I get compliments on the Remote T Bar Tank and Distort Packable Lightweight Jacket every time I wear them.... just saying.

Sizing: I'm wearing a small in every item mentioned. I'm 5'"4  with an athletic build and weight 130 lbs.
