Loving my Under Armour

Ok so a few weeks ago, I was contacted by an Under Armour rep. about doing a product review and giveaway.

I won’t do promotional things UNLESS I really believe in the company or brand – and I LOVE Under Armour.

I actually gained a huge respect for the brand when they started the “What’s Beautiful” competition.

So when he offered me a chance to review a product and give one away to a dedicated Man Bicep reader, I jumped right on the opportunity.

I work in a gym with tires, atlas stones, barbells, dumbbells, ropes and sleds. While we do have a cleaning crew that does a great job, the gym does have that sort of dirty outdoor feel.

It definitely isn’t a gym where I want to wear Lululemon. (Granted I only sometimes even wear my stuff from Lululemon to lift…It just doesn’t feel right to me…but that is me.)

BUT I do love wearing big comfortable t-shirts to workout in AND my Under Armour clothes.

I have a number of shirts from Under Armour, which are cute and flattering BUT NOT TIGHT (Even though I have half-naked photos on my blog, I really don’t like tight clothing.)

So anyway, I love my Under Armour stuff because it is cute but makes me feel comfortable and just seems to fit with all of the different things in the gym.

However, most of the Under Armour stuff I have is short-sleeved and while it isn’t COLD here, in a gym with no heat, you do sometimes need a sweatshirt.

And an Under Armour sweatshirt is one thing I didn’t have so I chose to review that product!

I got the purple Fleece Divide Hoody and I LOVE it!

It is warm and cute and comfortable (and I’m a fan of color so I love the brightness). I like mine loose so I got a medium and it fits perfectly! It is fitted enough without being skin-tight.

It makes me feel like I’m wearing something stylish, but at the same time it isn’t so cute or fragile feeling that I’m afraid to get it a little dirty.

It is perfect to lift in and perfect to coach in.

(Ok so these pictures are taken from this morning workout and I look tired…I’m apparently not a morning person any more…)

The only “negative” I guess is that it is missing thumb holes, but I’m just a weirdo and like to play with those…

So who is interested in getting their own Fleece Divide Hoody!?!

Check back later today for the GIVEAWAY!

P.S. I’ve decided breathing squats are going to be awful by the end of next week. Right now the weight is light enough that 20 in a row down to a low box isn’t bad, but once I up the weight next week…UH OH!
