From the title of this blog post, you may be thinking that I have only just begun my fitness journey, but the truth is that almost 9 months ago, at the beginning of the year, I made a promise to get more into my fitness. You may have noticed that this is the first post in the fitness category here at The Dizzying Heights (lol). Well let me tell you that it is here to stay (hopefully).
It didn’t happen straight away and things happened in my personal life that made me never want to step inside the gym and eat all the junk food, but nevertheless I gradually became more and more inclined to work out and I have slowly fallen in love with it. I love the adrenaline rush that I get from it and I feel a lot better for going as well.
Another thing that I have loved since going to the gym and working out, is buying outfits. In truth I have become a bit of a workout clothes hoarder, something I never thought would happen! And just when my Mum told me that I had no more space in my wardrobe for any more sports stuff, Lapasa got in touch, and asked if I wanted to review a pair of their leggings*. I mean I could hardly say no, could I?!
Lapasa is a Canadian-based yoga brand which provides comfort, good quality and high-tech apparel. They cooperate with sports, yoga and outdoor activity communities, using their self-developed new technology and material to produce better products with the world’s best manufacturers. They produce underwear, sports gear and casual clothes. Lapasa’s mission is to provide products using advanced technology, they focus on quality material that look good while maximizing performance.
Lapasa’s clothes are simple yoga clothing that feel good on, moves with the body, and makes you look hot too. When it comes to their sport bras, they look comfortable, yet still offer good support and shape. I haven’t tried their sports bras but I have read a lot of reviews and they will definitely be my next purchase.
I love the different patterns that Lapasa have to offer, it’s so important to have work-out clothes that make you feel comfortable because it really effects the way you feel and gives you a boost of confidence. I feel like they’re also very good value for money, especially when it comes to the quality of the product. They feel much more expensive than they are; they are a thick material but not too thick, and not thin enough to see your underwear. I wear a size 6/8 on my lower half so I ordered a size S which fit perfectly, they were slightly baggy around my crotch area (hopefully to prevent any unwanted camel toes!). The only thing I didn’t like is that it was quite loose around my ankles and I had to roll the bottom of the leggings up a bit so they were a bit tighter as you can see from the pictures.
The other great news is that Lapasa are giving you the chance to win your own pair of leggings or sports bra! All you have to do is retweet this tweet (which will also be pinned to my Twitter) and be following me by 30th September.
If you don’t want to wait for the giveaway to end, you can purchase your own pair of leggings or sports bra which I have a 10% discount code for: DIZZYING10 – enjoy!!!
