Guess what, I found a new fitness store! I was able to connect with Athleta and agreed to participate in their Power of She campaign. The Power of She campaign is essentially that women and girls of all body types and sports abilities can use Athleta’s products no matter what the reason. Running, hiking, or just hanging out Athleta has products that you can fit into your life and I like that thought. To see what I got in my Athleta Haul just keep scrolling!
Athleta is a fitness store that is part of the Old Navy and GAP family of stores. You can purchase products online or in their physical stores. I tried to purchase online, however, the store card I had wouldn’t work so I had to go into the store, and I’m glad that I did! I wound up going to the Columbia, SC Athleta store and the people there were so nice! The store itself has items laid out in an easy to find fashion, has very large changing rooms, and what I liked most clean bathrooms with feminine products available free of charge! The Columbia, SC Athleta carried accessories like water bottles, bags, headbands, blankets, etc. along with the different clothes like shirts, jackets, pants, sports bras, etc. I do wish that their sizes were a little more bigger plus size friendly as a 2x is a 20 for their clothes but other than that it was an amazing experience all around!
Athleta Haul Headband
The first item that I immediately went to was the Athleta Coaster Headband in Soft Lilac. I chose this headband because it has a loop in the back that you can pull your ponytail through making it more comfortable for ponytail wearers and also more secure. However, the loop isn’t noticeable enough to cause issues or discomfort for those who either don’t wear ponytails or when you choose not to wear a ponytail. As for the color, they did have black and silver as well as the lilac but I liked the look of the soft lilac the best!
Athleta Haul Toe Sox
The second item that I picked up was the Toesox Grip Full Toe Ballerina Socks. These are available on the website in both the full toe and half toe styles but I went with the full toe to start with as I’m just starting to use these kind of socks. I chose these because I’m wanting to start getting into yoga and barre and I have issues with sweat on the bottoms of my feet and the feeling of the floor against it. It’s a weird texture issue I have but I thought these would be perfect to help it, PLUS they have the little grippies on the bottom which will make it where I won’t slide as much and will have more grip!
Athleta Haul Water Bottles
The last thing that I picked up for my Athleta Haul were two (even though only one is pictured) 17 oz. S’well Water Bottles. This black and gold marbled bottle is mine and I got the Hubs and blue and white marbled bottle. I’ve heard great things about S’well and their ability to keep cold drinks cold and hot drinks hot for long periods of time. I thought these would be perfect for when the Hubs and I want to take walks around, plus they’ll be great for when I’m in class as well. As for them keeping drinks cold…well I put ice in my bottle on Saturday morning and on Tuesday evening I still had the same ice cubes that I’ve just been replacing water over!
