I’ve been working out 3-4 days a week consistently for over a year now (hells yeah!) and I noticed that I’m much more motivated to work out when I’ve got cute workout clothes. I know, but whatever works, right? I was searching around online for a subscription box for quality workout clothes and came across Ellie Activewear (use this link and get 25% off your first order). They had cute styles and I get to choose which outfit I want each month or even pause my box for that month. They had 30% off your first box, so I decided to give it a try! The first box was $37.47 and my normal boxes are $49.95, which includes tax and shipping.
You also have the option of just the outfit or upgrading to receive 2 workout/lifestyle related items in your box. I chose the 5-item option.
My very first outfit was First Impressions. I loved the pattern on the pants with the matching sports bra. I also got a free rose gold water bottle as a new customer. My two items that came along with my box were yoga socks (I actually needed these!) and a foot roller. I must admit, I use the foot roller ALL THE TIME at home when I’m on the computer. I didn’t realize how much I’d enjoy one of these! It feels great and as someone who tends to get sore arches, this works like a charm.
I got a size small in all items – bra, shirt, and pants. I’m 5’6 and 125 lbs and my current measurements are 35′ bust, 26′ waist, and 37′ hips. On the first of the month, I get an email letting me know it’s time to select my outfit or pause that month. It ships out the following week and tends to arrive mid-month, about the 15th or so. I do wish that this was a little faster because I get so excited after I’ve picked out what I’m getting. I’m probably just being impatient.
Everything fit great and the pants ARE squat proof – which is very important! My gym gets very hot in the weight room and I do workout in just a bra and pants sometimes, so I appreciate that these are high waisted and I don’t feel like I’m showing off too much skin in them. Along with your box, you can purchase bras, tops, and bottoms from Ellie directly, which I’ve done also. They tend to go on sale and are reasonably priced at around $16-$20 for most items,
Overall, I’m extremely pleased with my Ellie Activewear items and I’m currently waiting for my 3rd box to arrive. Again, if you’d like to give it a try, use my link for 25% off your first order!
