Perks of my dream job: “office attire” and “gym attire” are one in the same.
No one can accuse me of being lazy and lounging in yoga pants all day; these pants go to work. In theory, this would afford me the opportunity to splurge on all of the latest, greatest, most fashionable workout gear. But here’s a reality check: pursuing your dream career doesn’t necessarily go hand in hand with pursuing a profitable career. I am not a personal trainer to A-list celebrities (obviously only because no one wants to travel to Brattleboro), but I absolutely love what I do none the less. I sacrifice wealth for happiness, and as a result, money is often really tight. But a girl’s still gotta look good, right?
(that may be the girliest thing I’ve ever said on this blog…)
The other day I was asked if I would be interested in posting about Target’s C9 by Champion line, and I said, out loud, “Hell. Yes.” (I talk to my computer, as well as my cats. The lasting affects of working from home for the last year).
I have been a fan of the C9 line for YEARS. Why?
b) The line is affordable AND fashionable…something incredibly hard to find.
c) The clothes fit and work as they are intended to.
d) Did I mention…affordable?
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been asked if a C9 pullover I own is from that lemon company (you know, the one designed only for skinny thighs). I’m not one who cares about labels, all I care about is that my clothes fit and are comfortable, but there is a certain amount of
smugness satisfaction that comes with knowing your $24 pullover looks exactly like the $124 version from another brand. Thrifty shopper for the win!
(fun fact: it is also the same pullover I’m wearing in that picture on the header at the top of my blog where I clearly ate dirt on a trail run. Good memories…)
I’ve also put the C9 line to every fitness test possible: teaching group exercise, brutal workouts of my own, even hours upon hours on a Super Spartan course. They fit, they last, they are durable. “No nonsense” is how I like my workouts…and my workout apparel.
SO WHAT IS C9? C9 by Champion is Target’s exclusive athletic apparel collection and offers quality apparel priced under $50. C9 by Champion also has variety of accessories including gym bags, weights, jump ropes and more. In addition to the stylish pieces, C9 by Champion incorporates technical features similar to those found in the high-end fitness brands, such as moisture wicking, ventilation, antimicrobial, and Duo-Dry™ technology, but without the high-end price tag.
If you are interested in trying out the C9 line, you are in luck:
