Working on My Fitness Gear

For my new fitness journey, I figured I needed to get new fitness gear to match. Before, I was just wearing leggings and an old t-shirt and I thought I should step my game up. Plus, it helps to be cute and like what you are wearing when you work out. It gives an extra boost of confidence when you are sweaty and tired.

I was actually buying something else from Old Navy and decided on a whim to try some of their activewear. The first time, I got the Old Navy Active Compression Capris in Carbon Print in XL Tall and the Women’s Old Navy Active Double-Strap Sports Bra in L. I made a second order a while later when I realized that I didn’t have enough workout tops so I got the Women’s Old Navy Active Built in Bra Tank in Surf Zone in XL and the Women’s Old Navy Active GoDRY Graphic Tank in Medium Gray in XL but I couldn’t resist and also got the Old Navy Women’s Adjustable-Strap Sports Bras in a size XL in Cloud Cover and the Women’s Old Navy Active Printed Compression Capris in Black Jack Print in XL Tall.

I love the Adjustable Strap sports bra. Is it weird to love a bra let alone a sports one? The adjustability is such a great feature. It’s definitely different than any of the uncomfortable sports bras I’m used to. It is so comfortable and has great support. It is made of a breathable material and has racerback straps. Like I said above I got a size XL and it fits great. The double strap bra I got in a L and I see now that I should’ve got a XL. The double strap bra is not super uncomfortable but I see now that an XL would have been much better.

The built in bra tank is made out of a lightweight breathable material so it is great to workout in. I decided to get the brighter color to offset all the gray I tend to buy. And it is pretty long; long enough to cover my behind and it is not even tall-sized!

Old Navy boasts that the “moisture-wicking GoDRY jersey [of the GoDRY tank] helps keep you drier.” I am not sure if that is really true but I still think the tank is cute. I like the message of the tank as well as how it looks graphically. This one is also not tall sized but also long enough.


The compression capris are great. They are 20″ inseam and the compression holds you in so that when you walk/run/jog in them you don’t jiggle as much. I also love the print. They both have a black and white geometric pattern which I think are really cool. The capris are not too tight and have the right amount of stretch. So you can actually move around in them.
