When the lovely people at Sports Direct heard about my mission to get body fit they were kind enough to send me some bits from USA Pro new range to get me started!
I was sent 3 medium bra tops in charcoal/black which has a pretty but muted floral design, plain green and my fave...a pink and blue multi mix print. I was also sent 2 pairs of three quarter legging in the charcoal/black design and also black with a green waistband. (RRP £21.99 for the bra top and RRP £34.99 for the leggings)
The lovely people at USA Pro were also super kind to send me a selection of footwear and I received 2 pairs of the Pro Tone Gym II (1 pair in each colour selection) and also received the Pro Tone Pulse toning shoes. (RRP £54.99 for the Pulse and RRP £49.99 for the Gym II)
The USA Pro Medium Bra Top's are constructed with a built in bra for added support along with ventilation panels and the racer back has wide shoulder straps for a comfy fit. The USA Pro sports bra also benefits from an elasticated hem and, as with all USA Pro clothing is made using pro dry technology, which is designed to draw the sweat away from your body.
The USA Pro Three Quarter Leggings are made from lightweight design with flat lock seams and an elasticated waistband for a comfortable fit and reduced chaffing. They leggings also come with a single zipped pocket to the rear (I'm not quite sure why though?) and the zig zag stitching means that they are anti stretch too add to that the fact they are designed using true matt technology which stops the fabric looking shiny when stretched and darker colours looking less faded...means you will always look your best when working out or running! Huzzah!
The USA Pro Toning Shoes are designed with dual balance pods to the front of the foot and the heel which create micro-instability meaning you work out while you walk. A workout without actually working out? Go ahead...tell me that doesn't impress you!
What I Thought...
The fabric on all of the clothing felt thick and good quality, but yet at the same time to wear them they felt light and the super stretch in them meant they were extra comfy. Actually with the extra stretch I was a little worried about them falling down and the bra riding up but I needn't have worried everything stayed in place and I was comfortable the entire time, and every time I have wore them.
Now I'll be honest I was a little worried at first about the prospect of wearing the bra tops..what with a baby jelly belly and all I thought I might end up looking a bit ridiculous...BUT the leggings did a great job at holding in the tummy and smoothing out, and as the waist bands are a wider they was perfect to wear with the bra tops!
I have worn them all a few times, so far to do a couple of You Tube exercise classes, a workout on the Wii fit and, although they are not specifically designed for running, they all seem to be aimed at gym go-ers, I have wore them out for running and they are more than capable of doing the job! I will share more pics so make sure you head over and follow me on Instagram to follow my fitness journey! And each month I will share on my blog how the fitness has been going! (I was supposed to be going to a gym induction and a gym class but as you may have seen on my other posts/twitter the kids and Dean have all been poorly so kicked my pans out the door! Maybe this week hey!!)
I absolutely love the range and will definitely be heading out to purchase more USA Pro, whilst the crop top are OK whilst at home or out running with a hoody over the top, I cant see myself feeling comfortable wearing them in front of gym bunnies so when I eventually get round to going (that will be as soon as the dreaded bugs and flu leave the house!) I will be wearing the longer length vests and I know for running I should really be wearing running shoes so will be investing in some 'proper' trainers too!
