ALO - Review & Giveaway - CLOSED




I joined the gym in January and have been on a mission to lose weight.  Since we are at the gym 3 or 4 nights a week I started looking at workout clothes.   I found Alo on facebook and was very excited when they offered to send me some exercise clothes to review.  I was sent a pair of Capri pants, tank, and t-shirt for review.
I am going to be giving away the Capri pant and racer back tank, only because they didn't fit me.
The t-shirt that was sent was wonderful- it is made from 92% polyester 8% spandex knit jersey, peached for softness. Mesh panel at back and side seam for ventilation. Flatlock stitch on all seams. Bodymapping seams flatter the figure. Anatomically placed airflow mesh insets. The shirt you see on the right is the one I received except mine is a pretty Lotus color.  I love the fact that even though it is made with spandex it wasn't to form fitting, and it was longer in length.  Each piece of clothing came wrapped in pretty pink tissue paper and a black box, pretty fancy for exercise clothes!


The Capri pants are black, fitted, and the racer back tank is black and pink- they are really cute, and if I were in better shape, and weren't self-conscious about wearing clothes like that I would keep them.
Alo features both men and women's clothing and most importantly there clothing is "green".

Giveaway
If you would like a chance to win the Capri pant and Racer back Tank all I ask is that you leave me a comment telling me your favorite exercise. 
Both articles of clothing are a size Large- I would say they run a bit on the small side.  Both are brand new and have their original tags.  These will be shipped from me so due to the cost of shipping it is only open to the US.  The giveaway will end on June 4th at 10:00 PM EST.
 
***Disclaimer*** Thank you to Alo for providing the clothing for review and giveaway.  I was not paid for this post, all opinions stated are my own and yours may differ. Thank you to Claribelle for working with me.

Right now my favorite is a tie between spinning class and a class I take called Guts & Butts (it's Pilates and it's AWESOME!).
