If You Look Good, You Feel Good

Good morning everyone!  I hope you are having a wonderful Thursday.  We’ve had a super busy week around here and it does not seem like it is slowing down any time soon.

Our crossfit box is doing a competition this month to celebrate our ONE year anniversary.  We’ve had so much fun!  Athletes are excited, they are lifting heavier, running faster, jumping on boxes, rope climbing.  I am so proud of all of them and super thankful for our community.

I shared a little bit about how this community motivates me every day and helps get me out of a fitness slump.  You can read a little bit about that here.  It’s so important to have friends who will motivate you and keep you accountable.

As a coach, many times I have to go in to do my workout in between classes.  As someone who is used to working out with friends, it’s hard getting it done by myself.  Don’t get me wrong, I love a good run with my headphones on and favorite tunes playing.  But when it comes to crossfit, I love my workout buddies.

There is so much that motivates me to workout, but today I am talking about one of my favorite things.

Workout clothes!

Yes you read that right!  Since this is my daily attire, I own a lot of workout clothes.  Ask my hubby who insists that I don’t need anymore. In which I respond, you can never have too much ha!

I am faithful to the brands I have come to love. My list is short because I’m pretty picky when it comes to my workout attire.  It needs to pass the test of being comfortable, durable and most importantly it needs to be cute.  Let’s face it you look good, you feel good right?

I have shared my love for Lululemon, but today I want to tell you about another one of my favorite brands.

Born Primitive

My best friend and business partner, Staci is an ambassador and is the one who introduced me to the brand.  It took some time before I finally ordered some of their very popular booty shorts, but after I tried them on I knew why Staci loved them so much.

Not only are they comfortable, they have a longer inseam to keep you covered and they don’t ride up when you are working out.  They have all kinds of fun patterns to choose from.  These are their Halloween shorts that I am absolutely in love with!  Aren’t they adorable?  I think they are sold out, but be on the look out because Christmas ones are coming.  These shorts are not only for crossfit.  You can wear them to yoga, boot camp, weightlifting, running and of course hanging out around the house.

Now ladies, let’s talk sport bras.  So I have to admit.  I was quickly sold on the booty shorts, but I just couldn’t convince myself to spend the money for a sports bra.  Let’s just say…shame on me for waiting this long!  Y’all.  You all need a Born Primitive sports bra.  Trust me on this one.  This is the most comfortable sports bra I’ve bought.  It fits perfectly and doesn’t feel like it’s cutting off my circulation.  It gives me the support I need while working out because that is super important.  You ladies know what I’m talking about.  Our girls need support ha!img_7112-1

Sports bras and booty shorts are not the only items they sell.  They recently added yoga pants and have a great variety of tanks, long sleeve shirts and sweatshirts.  I love that you can wear them to the gym and around town running errands.  They also have a men’s line for all the guys out there.

I love Born Primitive not only for their clothing line, but also for what they stand for.  You can read all about it here, but I wanted to share this quote from their page:

“Born Primitive was created for the modern savages out there who reject this notion and refuse to accept the mediocrity that society now fosters. Whether it’s at the gym or in life, our beliefs are simple. Set goals, relentlessly strive to achieve them, and never make excuses. Look people in the eye and give them a firm handshake. Your word is your bond. Throw your conventional limits out the window and realize your true potential.”

I just love that.  Don’t settle for mediocrity folks.  Set goals and fight to achieve them.  Not only in your fitness, but in all aspects of life.  Reach for the stars.  Don’t give up and fight to the end.

And lastly, I love Born Primitive because they give back.  You can read all about the charities they support here.  Ladies you need to go and buy their Bright Pink Edition Vitality Sports Bra.  During the month of October they are donating $10 for every Pink Splash Bra directly to Bright Pink.

I love a brand that gives back!

So there you have it why I love Born Primitive.  Now go online and start shopping and use my BFF’s code: Sanders15 for 15% off.
