Best Work Out Gear For Women ~ From the Gym To On The Go

No matter the nature of your work out routine, every woman wants work out apparel that works with her.
In fact, let's face it - we expect it.  Of course, expecting isn't always getting and this Mom has had her share of disappointments.

My typically over-booked schedule doesn't allow for time to fuss over details on busy week days and I need active wear that is easy to wear, both in and out of the gym and easy to care for.  A typical tee shirt doesn't make my critical cut, usually looking like it's been through the works after a workout session.  Sweat pants, too sweaty.  Leggings leave no breathing room.

My ideal?  Clothes hold their shape and color through multiple washings, are flexible, breathable and chic enough I can wear them from walking the dog, through hurried errands, store runs and chauffeuring the kids about, as well as to the gym.

As with so many styles, material is the key to a active wear that suits.  Having been given an opportunity to test an assortment of active wear from the Russell Athletic women's collection, I was pleased to note a full line of moisture wicking gear, DRI-POWER®.  Created to help you keep your cool when you are working up a sweat, moisture wicking gear keeps moisture and perspiration at bay.  Available in several desirable colors, I loved the Wild Orchid Full Coverage Performance Tank with its subtle textured detail..  Soft yet sleek, roomy enough to not restrict my movement but cut in flattering fashion, this shirt is certainly perfect for a Mom on the go!

Also able to test the DRI-POWER® 360™ Round Neck Tee, I found this shirt less silky but still soft and smooth.  The cotton/rayon blend made for a light shirt that did a wonderful job of keeping its shape throughout my day.  It was clear that these shirts were designed with what women want in mind and I appreciate the long-waisted cut.

Women can't get enough of easy active gear bottoms, and, again, I am no exception.  The key to comfort is the right material.  Room to move, stretch, but breathable and ability to hold their shape makes the active gear bottoms from Russell Athletics tops in this Mom's book.  I fell in love with the Semi-Fit Performance Capris, again from the DRI-POWER® line.  A polyester/nylon mix, with back leg vents and a hidden pocket at the back of the waistband, the Teen Diva found herself quite taken with them, as well.  This Mom is savvy enough to know they've been commandeered for her daily runs.

Fortunately, the Cotton Stretch Capris, while right up my alley, didn't catch her eye.  Constructed of a slightly denser fabric, yet still soft, flexible and sleek, these Cotton/Polyester French Terry bottoms are the epitome of comfort yet offer a flattering line.

Best of all, these active wear components are surprisingly affordable, especially considering the moisture wicking technology.  With a range of $12.99 to $39.99, these stylish pieces are the perfect addition to a busy Mom's wardrobe!  After numerous washings, they have held their shape, color and sleek fit, making them a savvy and affordable choice.

Russell Athletic DRI-POWER® is a gal favorite!
