AloSports {Review/Giveaway}

My 30 day fitness challenge started yesterday!! Woo Hoo!! And even though I work out at home with my Journey Gym I still want to feel comfortable while doing so. And what not, why not look and feel attractive while you sweat your way through your routine, right!?

On my search for work out outfits I came across ALO. I must say that every piece of clothing they carry is beautiful. But ALO is not only about looking good and feeling comfortable.

 

Through the use of recycled and minimal impact materials, alo creates high performance activewear that delivers superb function, fit and style. With environmentally mindful design and production processes, our men’s and women’s collections utilize eco-friendly performance fabrics that provide outstanding comfort and results. Our most technically advanced Bamboo Jersey fabric has inherent properties that wick moisture and is naturally anti-bacterial, hypoallergenic and breathable with no added chemicals.*

 

 


I ask you to take 2 minutes off your day and see this video in which ALO invites you to Define Your Green. In this video they show the process their clothing goes through. Did you know you can turn water bottles into shirts?! I want one!!

ALO is not only about good looking, comfortable clothing but they are also all about being green and eco-friendly. It is companies like this that makes the world even better. So rest assured that when you wear ALO you are somehow helping our world!

 

- REVIEW -

Moving on…ALO graciously gave me the opportunity of reviewing two of their pieces: Mesh Inset Capris and Performance Tank.

{For future reference, do not snap photos of yourself right after dinner!}

 

I would have never thought about getting a pair of capri pants to work out! I have no clue why but I can be weird some times. But I love them! They are super comfortable and there’s no more need to make sure my pants do not get all tangled with my tennis shoes! And the blue on the tank is breathtaking! Super bright and cheerful!

 

 

The pants are made of 90% nylon 10% spandex heavy weight jersey. Anatomically placed mesh insets provide ventilation. Ergonomic seaming flatters and enhances performance. And they look good on! One thing that took me off guard was that the capris are high waisted. I am not used to pants so high up on the waist but as I went on with my workout I completely forgot because there was no need to pull my pants up!

These pair of pants have become my to go to pants to workout!! Plus, you can easily wear them about your day while you run errands!

 

 

The performance tank is simply gorgeous!! I have been contemplating using it as an everyday shirt. It is that comfortable! The tapiz blue is simply stunning and so bright! Helps with feeling calm and happy while you work out. No more black and white outfits for me!

What I like the most is that the tank is long!! I am all about long shirts! There’s no need to be self conscious while working out. No more tugging your shirt down. Phew!

The tank come with a built-in bra which helps a lot with the girls.

All in all I love ALO. The fabrics are eco-friendly, super high quality and extremely comfortable. The designs are gorgeous. The colors are cheerful. But ALO is not all about women only, they also have high quality clothing for men!

Make sure to visit ALO and see what they have to offer! Just make sure to visit regularly because they have new things coming in pretty often!
