How I Accidentally Found Out That Express Has The Best Workout Clothes

I went to an Express press event a few months back and walked away with a gift card (yippee!). Truth be told, I had never stepped foot in an Express store or even browsed their site–so I had no idea what to use this gift card towards. I know, I know #struggles. But what I ended up buying might surprise you (just like my coworkers).

I came across the brand’s activewear section one night when I was doing my late night perusing of the Interweb. Immediately I knew THIS was how I was going to spend my gift card. It made sense to use the gift card that had been sitting in my wallet for months on something I needed rather than wanted. You see, I recently lost my soul to SoulCycle (more on that later) and needed more than just my one pair of leggings to keep up with this new hobby. The leggings led me to sports bras and tanks and well, here’s what I got: leggings that look like a cloudy sky (similar styles here), a tye die sports bra bra (similar style here), this 2-in-1 bra tank (2 for 1–ahmazing) and this burnout tank with cross back straps.

If you need any sort of workout apparel, get your (fit) booty over to Express ASAP. Not only are the clothes reasonably priced to begin with, but there’s a sale practically everyday. Besides having the right price, these clothes are seriously good for sweating in. They’re made with breathable fabrics for moisture-wicking and all that fun stuff. Not to mention, they come in cool colorful prints and patterns. And if that’s not your thing, there’s tons of plain black options as well. K, have I convinced ya yet that Express is the spot ?? Don’t forget about those resolutions…

P.S.–am I really late to this party? Have you been shopping Express gym clothes on the low too? Comment below!
