alo - Sportswear, Athletic Apparel & Outdoor Clothing ~ Review & Giveaway
Now, I have to admit that I don't work out nearly as often as I know I should, but I'm making a conscious effort lately to get back on track. Oh, and did I mention that I have one of the saddest looking workout wardrobes around? Well, both of these factors made me very excited when I was given the chance to review a great piece of athletic apparel from alo. alo's mission is to Create high performance, stylish lifestyle wear with outstanding function, designed and produced with minimal impact on the environmental elements alo stands for: Air. Land. Ocean. We provide customers with a choice that is respectable of the environment with out sacrificing fashion.
So, not only do they make great athletic apparel, but they do it in a way that is conscious of our environment too and that's always something you can feel good about.
I was asked what kind of workouts I typically do and I told them running and aerobic type workouts. They sent me their Color Block Tank in Deep Purple/Lupine. Here is a description of the tank: 90% nylon 10% spandex jersey. This tank has open mesh back details, contrast trim, a flattering neckline and great seam lines for fit and fashion. High Impact Bra.
The look of the tank is great! I put it on and it had a great fit. I tried it out doing a high intensity aerobic workout and it held everything in place with minimal movement (I think you can figure out what I mean) and kept me cool during my workout (much better than the junky t-shirts I typically work out in). I couldn't help but think that I wished I had had this tank when I used to work out at the local gym. I would've looked much cuter wearing this than the workout clothes I did wear. I also thought that it will be great for running because it covers well and provides great support, while still being stylish. Now, I just need a great pair of athletic pants or capris to go along with it!
Here is what the tank looks like...
Here is a swatch of the colors of the tank I received...
I am very happy with the looks and performance of this great tank and would love to get more of their athletic wear in the future!
