Hi friends!! Sorry for the Fitness hiatus but today we are back with an awesome Fitness Friday!! I recently got in touch with Mark Arruda, owner of Constantly Varied Gear. They’re a fitness based clothing company with loads of leggings, shorts, tanks and tees. Mark graciously agreed to send me some leggings to try out and review for you guys! I even got to pick which ones 🙂 With all their styles, it was a tough choice! I settled on the #LiftHeavy black leggings because, duh, I like to lift heavy!
First off, I LOVE how these leggings feel. They’re a mix of polymide and elastane which creates a stretchy, soft and strong material. I can’t see these leggings tearing or really wearing down over time because they’re made of such strong material. I decided to go with a large because that’s what I usually wear in other leggings. They’re not too tight at the waist and feel good on my quads but like most tights I have, they were a bit long. I’m a towering 5’3” so most pants/leggings/etc are too long on me.
I’m used to this so it’s not that big of a deal for me. They still fit great on my butt, and quads which is of course what I’m most concerned about 😉 I’ve worn these multiple times to the gym for different workouts to see if I liked them better for wodding, lifting, both or only certain workouts. I found that although these had a nice tight fit, I wouldn’t wear them during WODs with jumping such as box jumps, double unders, or burpees. I wore these during a WOD that included box jumps and burpees and they just creeped down a little at a time. However I think this could have been remedied by buying a medium instead of a large. So when you try your first pair, make sure to get a smaller size than you might think. However if you do end up with the wrong size, their return policy is super easy! All you have to do is return them unused, within 2 weeks of getting them.
Another cool thing Constantly Varied Gear offers is a leggings subscription. You get new, unique leggings every month at a great, affordable price. You can pay month to month, up to 3 months, 6 months or even a year! If you pay up to 3 months, you get a free CVG shirt of your choice! Your payments will recur monthly but you can cancel at any time. Along with getting your leggings at a discounted price, you get free shipping as well. If you don’t want to get a recurring payment, there are other plans available as well. They make great gifts for any fitness fanatic in your life! If you’re not sure what to pair together, they offer an outfits page to help you come up with some ideas! Make sure to check out this gear for your next workout!!
