Being a certified personal trainer and a lover of all things fitness related I am often asked, “what are your favorites.” Women want the most supportive sports bras, the most comfortable capris and great shoes. It has been quite some time since I have shared some of my favorites and I thought it was time to share my most recent fitness finds that I have been enjoying.
When it comes to fitness apparel I am all for things that can be worn in and out of the gym since I spend 90% of my time in activewear. When it comes to finding good activewear, once I find something I love, I just reorder in different colors. Usually workout tops are the hardest thing for me to find and lately I have discovered a few that I LOVE!.
Five Favorite Workout Tops
After being have three babies in four years and being every size, I have had to replace several workout tops that have been stretched over my baby bump. When it comes to tops, it is difficult for me to find ones I love and when I do I just stock up and that is what I have done on these five different tops.
GapFit Tie Back tank: This Gap Breathe Tie back tank is perfect for everything! It makes me feel super strong and confident because it sort of has a muscle take feel, but the tie makes it feel more feminine. It is also super cool for those hot summer days and could even be super cute over a bathing suit top.
GapFit Racer Back Tank: The Gap Breathe Racer Back tank is just simple tank and comes in several colors, but I am in love with this ombre colored tank. Racer backs are my favorite and I love that you can your own sports bar under there for when you need to choose your support.
Lululemon Power Y: I’ve always loved this Power Y tank from Lululemon and have recently enjoyed it more. When I am nursing I have to double up and cannot just wear this without an extra bra if I am doing any type of high impact workout. However, I love it when I can wear it when I am just lifting or even around the house. This is my favorite tank to wear when we have an active family day riding bikes, at the lake or doing yard work.
Old Navy Go-Dy Cool Mesh Tank: If I am looking for a more supportive top, this Old Navy top is my go-to. I have it in two different colors and really love the support it provides. The price is right too!
GapFit Long Sleeve Ballet Top: If you see me on my way to or from the gym, chances are I will be wearing this in pink or blue this Spring & Summer. I love this GapFit Long Sleeve Ballet top! Sometimes I get cold after leaving the gym or I am just too sweaty to sport my solely the top I worked out in and this top is perfect after a workout in those warmer months. This top is also good for lounging at the lake and I enjoyed wearing it while kayaking.
If you are looking for a new activewear top, check out one of these. If you are curious about my other favorites, you can check out my past Friday Favorites here. Or if you are a runner, last year I shared my running specific favorites here.
Fitness apparel is 90% of what I wear and when it comes to workout tops, I look for functionality and support based on my workout. Whether you are a runner, a yogi, you lift weights or you just like to run on the playground with your kids, there is a top above that will work for you.
