Happy Friday gang!  So today I’m officially starting a new GRIT by Brit Tradition: Fitness Fashion Friday!  Every Friday, I’ll post pics of my favorite activewear outfit from the week.  This week I wanna show off the outfit I wore yesterday to teach PiYo at Fossil Corporate HQ in Dallas.  All of the class members are super trendy, well-dressed Fossil employees so I had to bring my “A-game” when picking my outfit.  I think this was the perfect combo of FUN and FIERCE.  What do you think?

Target® C9 Activewear Review and Sexy Shoulder Workout

I’ve always been fan of “Tarjay” so when I was asked to review the new Target® C9 activewear, I gladly accepted!  Better yet when I went to purchase my gear, I stumbled upon the surprise of finding C9 activewear on sale – buy 1 piece get the 2nd half off!   There were tons of bright colors and pattern combinations so you can mix and match the tanks and shorts. I bought both the light pink and navy Sporty Layered Run Tank + Run Shorts for under $30.  This is a perfect example of why I love Target®.  The product styles are always on trend and the price is affordable.  One of the GRIT by Brit core beliefs is we do not have to be wealthy to be healthy.  To further that, we also don’t have to be wealthy to feel and look good while living a healthy lifestyle 🙂

Now, a little more about my C9 activewear…

The tank top is layered with a sports bra built-in – YES!  Not only is the design cute, but it’s also functional.  It provides good bust support and the material is light and breezy so I stayed cool while working up a sweat.  I also appreciate the vertical stripe pattern on the back which has a slimming effect (a good look).  The shorts have a wide knit waist band that’s made of this dri-fit material.  Like most running shorts, they also have built-in underwear that are made of the same dri-fit material.  I spent about 10 minutes on the rowing machine and another 15 minutes on the Stair Stepper – fortunately, the shorts didn’t ride up my thighs or annoyingly rub against my skin as I moved.

Overall, I’m very happy with my purchases.  I do wish that the shorts had the same cool multicolored design as the sports bra.  However, my friends always make fun of me for being too “matchy” so maybe it’s a good thing that the shorts are a simple navy with light pink trim.  What do you think?

Along with my product review and I want to share this workout video.  You guys know I’m always creating home workouts and on the lookout for new moves to incorporate into my routine.  This Sexy Shoulders workout definitely gets my stamp of approval.  I did the workout after my cardio and felt very toned and confident in my racer back tank top – I  encourage you to give the Sexy Shoulder Workout a whirl!

Hopefully you guys enjoy the workout AND head to Target® to get some super cute C9 activewear.  Personally, I felt good and still looked (pretty) good after finishing the Sexy Shoulder Workout – see my sweaty photos below.  Lots of luv!  xoxo, Brit
