I hate to admit this, but I've been a bit bad lately. Between Easter treats and a mini vacation with my family, I have had more bread, treats and sweets than I am used to eating, and it's quickly catching up with me! I am motivated to get myself back on track, for my own health, and because summer is just around the corner. I want to feel comfortable in my swimsuit when I am back at the beach in 6-7 weeks- not to mention that I am in my best friend's wedding, coming this October! For me, being fit isn't really about weight loss- it's about shaping and toning, which is why I tend to turn to Pilates when it comes to work outs.
Though you can certainly workout in whatever you like, I like to stick with tanks and leggings that are made for active lifestyles, and work with you, rather than against you during a workout. Close-fitting tanks and leggings are great for a Pilates workout, because they allow the body to move freely, without catching.
Recently, I began my search for a new workout tank that would be comfortable to wear during the spring and summer, and wouldn't utterly squish me. As luck would have it, I ran across Shark's Bites of Life, and connected with owner, Theresa. Shark's Bites of Life specializes in unique lifestyle and fitness apparel. Theresa is a 29-year-old fitness enthusiast, and believes that everyone should be able to look and feel good while achieving their fitness goals, whatever those may be. Theresa is a graphic designer, and has been making custom shirts since college. Each and every shirt is handmade, and made to order!
I was so excited for the opportunity to connect with Theresa, who kindly agreed to send me the awesome Pilates Shapes This Body Burnout Racerback Tank.
Proud to shout it out- PILATES Shapes This Body!
I was so excited about this cute tank! I love that it's a burnout style and a racerback tank. It's light, and fitted without being too clingy or too loose- perfect for Pilates, Yoga, etc. I wasn't about to let a recent mini-vacation with my family keep me from doing my morning Pilates routine. I took the Pilates Shapes this Body Tank along to the beach, and was super stoked to wear it for my workout. Through bridging, advanced crunches, leg lifting, swimming, etc- I was comfortable the entire workout.
I received a size Small, and it was a great fit for me.
The back of the tank includes the Shark's Bites of Life logo!
The racerback style is perfect for anytime, but it's definitely a great choice for a spring/summer workout tank. It kept me cool and comfy! I was so comfortable wearing this tank, that I threw it on over my bathing suit when we headed out onto the beach. The sun was warm, but the air was still a bit cool, and I wasn't sure if I wanted to brave the winds. I was glad I put it on as a cover-up, and plan to do the same when we head back to the beach in a few weeks!
A cute beach look- the Pilates Shapes this Body Tank with comfy shorts and a wrap cardi!
Not only do I love working out in adorable tank, I love just hanging out in it. Like a lot of women, I can become pretty frustrated with my body, and let's face it, after you've had a baby, there are some areas of the body that you're sure will never look the same again. I try to stay positive, and motivated to keep going with my daily exercise routine- I love the results when I stay on track (and so does my husband). The message across the shirt just serves as a reminder to me that when I stick with Pilates, go for daily walks with my son, etc, I can achieve the look I want, and so can anyone else!
