PUMA Fitness: Apparel Review

The following post is sponsored by FitFluential LLC on behalf of PUMA. All opinions are my own.

I recently received a workout outfit from PUMA to review and share with you on F&F.

PUMA Fitness Outfit

I must admit that my first few months as a Fitfluential Ambassador are not letting me down – there’s so much fun fitness gear being sent my way! Selfishly, I like adding to my ever-growing drawer closet of workout clothes, but I also like to give you guys the rundown on new products and apparel on the market. I always say that I have zero fashion sense when it comes to dressing for work or going out, but I can talk spandex any day.

Here are the three PUMA products I tried out last week:

Sneakers
(Formlite XT Ultra Women’s Training Shoes)

When I took these out of the box, the first thing I said was “oooo these are fun” because I love, love, LOVE the colors. I don’t have a token pair of bright pink sneaks, so I’m psyched to add one to my sneaker collection.

Puma Formlite XT Ultra

These are VERY lightweight, and it feels like I am walking on air while wearing them. While I still haven’t made the switch to minimalist sneakers for running because I prefer a shoe conducive to my orthodic inserts, I liked wearing these while in the weight room and on the spin bike. One feature I’m not that hot on is the ankle height. Maybe I just need to get lower socks, but even my “no-show” socks were peeking out too much with these guys! Nerd alert.

Tank Top
(Graphic All Eyes On Me Tank)

Gah, I want to love this one so bad.

I want to love this tank top because like the sneaks, the color combo really appeals to me. I want to love this tank because of its comfortable fit throughout the body. And I especially want to love this tank top because of its unique design on the back. I can totally rock this one, no!?

But I just can’t love it because of its damn built-in sports bra! I know I’m not the most well endowed girl out there and that I no longer have the chest I used to, but I still need to wear a sports bra while working out. While this tank boasts having a built-in bra lining, it just didn’t feel supportive enough to do a high intensity workout in. I can’t be letting the ladies hang out, especially when teaching in front of a class!

When a tank has a built-in lining, cups, etc., I often double up and wear a regular sports bra anyways, but wearing both with this tank just felt too bulky and awkward for my liking. Unfortunately, unless I can get over the doubling up discomfort, this tank will probably be reserved for home workouts, yoga, or spin classes in the dark. Boo!

Crop pants
(Gym graphic 3/4 tights)

These crops are my favorite out of the three items I received. I guess I’m a sucker for PUMA’s bright color combos, but I have to mention (again) how much I like the aesthetics of these.

PUMA Gym Graphic 3/4 Tights

The color panels start on the sides and then wrap around to the back of the pant. Not only do these bottoms have a flattering design, but they fit PERFECTLY and are super comfortable to work out in. They have that moisture-wicking material that is necessary to remain dry during the sweatiest of workouts. Now I want to go grab a few more tops to match so these pants can be in my rotation more often than only when my black tops are clean. I think I’ll check if PUMA has some without the built in bra first!

–Let’s chat–
Do you own any PUMA apparel? Do you prefer workout tanks with or without a built-in bra? What color combinations do you tend to go for when shopping for gym gear? Out of the three items I reviewed, which would you be most likely to buy?

Hope your weeks are all off to a great start!

  1. I don’t own any PUMA apparel, but your clothes look really cute! I prefer workout tanks without a built in bra… I usually find them too bulky. I don’t have any specific color combinations I look for. To be honest, I’m a bit of a sale shopper, so I love to buy whatever is a good deal. I think I would be most likely to wear the shoes because of how lightweight they are. Thanks for the review!!!

  2. I think that the clothes are very cute and I only wear work out tanks with a built in bra, as I prefer the extra support .(I wear with a sports bra) If it has cups, a lot of time they can easily be removed, so perhaps you would like the tank better then.

  3. Ok I’m Happy I’m not the only person who is totally turned off by bras inside tops. I NEVER find built ins with enough support and wearing two bras just makes my rib cage hurt. That top is super cute thought and who has enough workout gear? I would like to meet them. Great review!

  4. I love PUMA apparel, I just can’t seem to afford it! I usually wear a gym bra and tshirt as I am still a littel self conscious about my weight… but I hope to one day be able to wear a cute, tight top 🙂

  6. Hi, i read your blog from time to time and i own a similar one and i was just wondering if you get a lot of spam feedback? If so how do you prevent it, any plugin or anything you can advise? I get so much lately it’s driving me crazy so any support is very much appreciated.
