As a full time dance teacher I basically live in my workout clothes. Between my regular classes, my workouts, my running….I am basically in spandex every second of every day. (gosh I love my job!)
I mean….my friends and family now look at me weird if I’m wearing jeans, or a regular tshirt. Or if my hair is down. My dancers won’t even recognize me when they see me out of normal dance class attire.
So for me, my workout clothes need to be top notch. They need to fit comfortably, they need to be flattering (As I see myself in a mirror for like 95% of my day…), breathability is huge, and they need to withstand the wear and tear of my workouts and my daily dance routine.
I’ve worn a lot of different workout brands in the past. Lululemon, Nike, Reebok, Under Armour, etc. And don’t get me wrong, I have my obsession with EACH of these brands (e.g. multiple pairs of shoes, tanks, crops, etc.), but Lorna Jane is officially my newest obsession.
Why? Well let’s just start with what the brand has to say about themselves
Lorna Jane is a company by women FOR women!
The Brand (from the Lorna Jane website)
ACTIVE LIVING. IT’S CONTAGIOUS, INFECTIOUS AND IT STARTS RIGHT HERE.
We are on a mission to empower every woman to lead her best life
through Active Living.
What started as a passion to deliver unique and inspiring designs to fellow gym lovers, Lorna Jane has now given a whole new meaning to staying fit and healthy – it’s a lifestyle that transcends the walls of the gym.
Aside from industry leading technology, expert craftsmanship and hi-tech performance fabrics, Lorna Jane represents a global movement of women living their best, most beautiful lives through Active Living.
All for the love of health and wellness, the Lorna Jane sisterhood aspires to be their own personal best by embracing the daily practice of Move Nourish Believe, and just like Lorna, Active Living runs through the veins of any girl who chooses to wear her 3 icons with pride.
Ok….so that in itself intrigues me to their brand….and A few months back in San Diego I went to the launch of the store in the North County Fair mall. I bought a couple new running capris and tshirts….I didn’t really know what to expect. I was a new customer at the time….flash to now….I LIVE in those clothes…seriously….
I live in workout clothes anyway, but if I have a choice I choose my LJ gear any day. I’ll even make sure to wash it multiple times in a week to make sure I get to wear it over and over. AND through all that wearing and washing….it still looks like it did the day I bought it!
So yes…I love them!
ESPECIALLY the mantra shirts!
I was lucky enough to get to go to the Launch of the Downtown Seattle store for Lorna Jane as part of my ambassadorship program with Fit Approach. And let me tell you they did NOT disappoint!
The reps were SUPER helpful. They walked me around the store, helped me pick out fun clothing ideas…..AND while I was partaking in the fitness class they even threw in some ideas of things they thought I’d love based on what I’d already chosen to try on! LOVE!
The other awesome part of the event was the FREE workouts! Lab5 Fitness was there and taught a HIIT Cardio class that I got to take part in! It was amazing….I seriously sweated it out in that room!
I even talked to the store reps about getting my burlesque and PiYo classes in the store! They’ll be offering classes weekly IN STORE! How freaking awesome is that?!? You can check out the store Facebook page to get the class details!
I walked away with a number of cute mantra shirts from the event. They even got me out of my comfort zone and into some UBER cute blue capri pants. I’m very self conscious of wearing colored leggings, but THESE I loved and they were perfect for the Seahawks 5k I ran for the 2014 NFL Kickoff Run!
So why do I love Lorna Jane? Let me count the ways….
1) Super comfy clothing that is INSPIRING, COMFORTABLE & DURABLE!
2) Amazing in house reps that BELIEVE in the clothing line and the company! They even do store team events for the employees and charity work!
3) They are a company that promotes women to be healthy and STRONG! They push YOU to push YOURSELF
The list goes on and on….I’m sold!
AAAND I may officially live in this Lorna Jane visor (a gift for shopping at the Launch event!) for the entirety of rainy season in Seattle…perfect for my long runs and rainy day hiking!
Have YOU tried Lorna Jane?!
