For me, one of the great joys in life is sport and fitness. Movement.
Don’t get me wrong, there are many other joys. But I love the clarity of mind that comes with a good run. That moment when I reach the top of a hill on my bike and the road flattens out. I love it when my body delivers two more push-ups, even though my brain is screaming stop this nonsense. And I love the electricity in the air at a race…any race. This means, by the way, I weep a lot during the Olympics. I mean, did you see the two sisters win Olympic skiing gold for Canada in Sochi on the weekend? My God, I’m tearing up right now just thinking about it.
So, by proxy and because I spend a lot of time in them, I get an odd amount of pleasure from workout gear. Like tank tops with a long torso. Socks that don’t inch down in my shoes mid-run. Heart rate monitors. And such. Weird? Maybe. Or maybe not. Sometimes joy requires infrastructure.
So when Sears Canada contacted me to see if I’d like to try their new line of workout wear, Pure NRG Athletics, it was a very quick yes.
Sears Canada sent me three new outfits to try. THREE!
Right out of the box I was impressed. The gear had a great feel. The colours were fun. There is an interesting assortment of styles and lines.
And the gear feels great on. Most important for the pants, they have the wide comfort waist band. The full length pants (Stride Pants) were long enough for me, which is sometimes tough to find (I’m 5’10); I’d guess a 33 or 34 inch in-seam. The tank and t-shirt were nice and long – full torso coverage, people. And I love the zip-up mock neck jersey. It’s a medium-ish (technical term) weight, fitted, with good width across the shoulders and good arm length.
I was also impressed with the price tag. The price point on this stuff is fabulous. Getting away from the sometimes ridiculous cost of certain brands, this is awesome. Sears Canada is making great workout outfits (not pieces!) available for under $50. I love this.
Now this is the really exciting part.
