Outfit: Getting Active with Avia

I’ll start this off with a bit of honesty: I’ve become lazy. In fairness, I’ve had a good reason to slow down. Having a baby will do that to you. But baby Juliza was born six months ago, and it’s about time for me to find ways to become active again.

We moved this past weekend, which was one heck of a workout in itself — especially given that we moved from a third floor apartment into a house with all the bedrooms upstairs. That was fun. Still, it’s long past time for me to develop an earnest workout regimen, less for vanity and more for my health and fitness. I’ve lost a lot of flexibility over the last few years, and I need to work on my arm strength and endurance.

All this to say that when Walmart offered me an opportunity to try out some great activewear from Avia (yes! You can find Avia clothes and shoes at Walmart), I knew it could be the kick in the pants I needed.

Typically, I work out in leggings and t-shirts. Though I’ve bought some workout shorts in the past, I learned after a couple of uses that they weren’t my favorites because they’d ride up during my favorite form of exercise: dancing.

These workout capris from Avia are amazing. They are soft and smooth with great stretch, which makes them awesome for everything from yoga and pilates to dancing and bike riding. And did I mention they’re great for lounging around the house? I’m wearing them right now, and they are so much cooler than yoga pants when it’s hot outside. Plus, there’s a hidden pocket big enough for a key. I wish it was a little bigger, but I’ll take it! They’re available in a bunch of colors, and at just $14.86 for performance pants, I’m definitely going to invest in a few more.

On top, I’m wearing a great moisture-wicking performance tank. I can’t lie. I chose this mostly because of the color and style. The performance is just a nice bonus. I usually like workout shirts with sleeves, but I thought this would keep me cooler, especially on bike rides. I got through an exhausting (and sweaty) Zumba routine without having the fabric stick to my skin, so I’d say that’s a win.

And the best part? All the Avia items go up to a 2X, and the stretch is pretty awesome.

As it is, I’m probably going to live in this outfit for the rest of the summer, because the loose fit of the top also makes breastfeeding a breeze, both from the bottom and through the arm hole.

There are a ton of styles of Avia tops and bottoms, and some great sports bras that looked to be really supportive (though I can’t know for sure without a test). For the price, I really like the style and quality, and I’ll keep my eye out for more Avia items when I need some workout clothes that can do double duty for lounging.

What about you? Do you like to invest in workout clothes? Do you trust the Avia brand enough to try these?

  1. These are cute! I will definitely be checking them out, because I’m always on the lookout for comfortable and cute workout wear. I prefer capris like these, because the fit is multi-functional, like you said. I don’t want to have to buy separate workout clothing for yoga, dance, and walking. It’s easier if it works for all of them. I’ll be going to Walmart to take a look AND sharing this post, for sure!

    1. Yes, Ivy! The capris really are great, and I’ve already convinced my mother invest in a couple pairs for when she goes walking every week. They’re really worth the money and have quickly become my favorite lounging pants.
