New Competition For Lululemon

Wednesday is my strength training day and I try to get up and do it first thing in the morning.  Right when I wake up, I have 16 oz of water at least.  Next is my cup of coffee.  Last is my G Series FIT prime bar.  Today I tried Cranberry Pistachio.  It was delicious and did not make me hungrier.  A perfect small metabolism/energy booster before pumping some iron!  I quickly made a TIU protein pancake to bring and eat while I showered/changed.

There are so many studies about eating before morning workouts and increasing fat burn.  I personally have concluded that something small is best.  I stick to 50 calories, which is usually a prime bar or a half a banana.

On my way up to Equinox, I didn’t see Mark Wahlberg but I did see a clothing sample sale going on.  I am a sucker for pop up sales.  I knew I would have to stop on the way out and boy am I glad I did.

I quickly moved through my strength training workout, and even added one set of tabata intervals featuring kettlebell swings.  I also added in 10 minutes on the arc trainer because let’s face it, I haven’t exactly been perfect with the diet these days.

While I was leaving, I stopped to check out the clothing from DA Active.  It was a big like at first sight, and love once I tried them on.  The bright colors and soft fabrics reminded me of lululemon but the prices did not!  The representative told me that they actually use the same fabric.

I chose to try on the “Do It Again” Capri pants in hot pink and black.  These were amazingly comfortable.  OMG.  I needed to have them.

I also tried on the matching hot pink braided tank top.  I tried on the 6 because of “the girls” and that is what I usually am in lululemon but I needed a size 4.  I loved the fabric, the extra length and design on the back.  Super cute!

Although they may be guilty of Vanity Sizing, I still loved the outfit.  DA Active looks very similar to lululemon but unlike the overpriced favorite of mine (sorry lulu), you won’t look like a clone at the gym with matching outfits as everyone else.

I didn’t leave buying anything because I found out that shipping online is free and you also get 10% off your first order!  How amazing is that?  So if you want to buy something from DA Active, visit their site and use promo code “da234” and receive 10% off and free shipping.  Lastly, I was not paid or given free clothes for this post.  I just love helping small companies get off the ground, especially when I love their clothes.  They have a store in Hyannis on Cape Cod.  I’m going to stop there on my way down tomorrow!
