I know I already raved about this weekend’s weather to you all yesterday, but the great weather continues and, I swear, I’m in 192,428x a better mood! Plus, the warmth and sunshine makes me just that more motivated to get outside and be active. Both over the weekend and even yesterday, I spent as much time as I could in that sunshine, and Lucas thoroughly enjoyed it, too. And of course, I had to have some comfy, appropriate “play” clothes while we were out running around.
Okay so speaking of comfy play clothes, how adorable is this outfit?
And how much does the jacket tied around the waist totally bring you back to the 90s?
I recently had the opportunity to test out some of the new gear from Champion’s brand new spring 2015 line. With this line, they’re also kicking off their All Gain, No Pain™ campaign, which introduces numerous athletic wear styles made for added comfort.
The Champion Women’s PerforMax® Marathon Printed Packable Jacket is definitely my favorite item out of them all.
I love how it’s roomy, yet still designed to be semi-fitted without looking sloppy. Plus…thumbholes. An automatic WIN in my book.
Oh, and it even rolls right up into the hood for easy packing/storing. Love it!
The material of the Champion Women’s PerforMax® Marathon Tee is absolute perfection.
It’s ultra lightweight and has an added, asymmetrical mesh back for ventilation, which adds a fun design element.
I’ll admit that I’m usually super picky about my workout bottoms (tight waistbands…muffin tops…no go!), so I was pleasantly surprised when I first tried on the Champion Women’s PerforMax® Marathon Knee Tight.
They have a nice, wide waistband (heck YES!), and the PerforMax® Vapor technology dries faster to help maintain optimal body temperature. The added mesh lined inner key pocket in the waistband is also an added plus.
Finally, the Champion® Marathon Sports Bra. I’ll be honest here…the bra is really, super comfortable, but I’m not sure it’s one that I’d purchase on my own, only for the mere fact that it’s not padded.
As a member of the small chest club, I always appreciate a little extra padding up there, to help give some more shape.
But that aside, everything else about it is top notch…and I suppose I could always try to add in my own pads.
Ultimately, the premise of the All Gain, No Pain™ campaign is that the can-do-comfort apparel helps you do more (run more, train more, climb more, etc.), through the benefits provided by the products in their Spring 2015 line, including the Champion Vapor® Fast Drying Technology, Chafe Resistant Seams and Ultra Light Fabric. And after spending a full day in the products, I can attest to the fact that they are all super comfortable and definitely something I’d purchase with my own money.
I’d also recommend checking out their campaign on social media, too! They’re celebrating Real Champions – everyday people/athletes who pursue their personal fitness journey and goals through something (or someone) that has inspired them along the way. You can follow along with the #RealChampions hashtag, as well as the ##AllGainNoPain hashtag, as well.
Based on consumer insights, Champion has identified comfort as the key driver for athletic wear and thus has created a line of innovative apparel engineered for added comfort. “All Gain No Pain,” celebrates all you can do when you’ve got quality athletic apparel that feels light, dry, and comfortable.
