Do ya like the feel of stretchy fabric that glides over your hips and thighs and fits love a glove? Then you would love these new clothes I got the chance to try out this weekend.
It’s workout apparel from a nifty company called Nux — and the first thing I love about them is their company philosophy:
I’m on board, you?
When I opened the package, I thought the clothes looked realllly small but turns out, they stretch — a lot!
And I’m loving the little keyhole slots on both the front and back of the shirt. Doesn’t the design look unique and stylish for workout gear?
I wouldn’t normally wear matchy matchy pants/shirt but for the sake of this post I did. Just a little FYI.
I always see pix of people doing these one-handed handstands against the wall so I figured it wouldn’t be too hard. Well, I was wrong. Either way, somehow my friend was able to get this shot — as silly as it looks:
My friend’s husband told me I looked kind of like a ninja about ready to go tackle something. Mmmk, I’ll take it!
I made sure to try a few different moves just to get the feel of the material and know that I’d be comfortable moving in all those crazy ways I do at crossfit.
So then…I actually wore the pants to crossfit this morning and got a real workout in them! They felt great — which is to say, I didn’t notice them — exactly what you want.
Oh yeah and you know those pull-ups I’ve been working on? Well, turns out, I’m not doing as well as I thought. I thought I was doing some decent kipping pull-ups but it looks like I have some improvements to make. I was hesitant to show this video but hey — as, J-Lo says, I’m real. (Sorry, that was really stupid…)
