I love fitness wear! I’m sure that doesn’t surprise you. I had been waiting for 2XU to open in Fashion Island. I’m always on the hunt for something new, something bright and something different. They finally opened and I went in to check it out. Brights? Check! Cool fabrics? Check! Great design? Check. But I was with the hubs so I just dropped off some cards for the staff to try my classes at GRIT Cycle and knew I’d be back.
I was excited to meet Flavia, one of the 2XU staff members, at GRIT a few days later! She invited me back to the store to try on some stuff and learn about the company. Okay…she did offer to gift me an outfit. You don’t have to ask me twice! I was in!!!
The store is great! If you are an elite athlete or a weekend warrior, they have something for you. Especially if you are a runner, cyclist, or swimmer! 2XU is known for their compression wear. I tried on a few tops, some regular tights and some lightweight compression tights. I loved the tops! They each had cute back design details and they weren’t too low cut in the front! The regular fitness tights were nice. Even though they didn’t have the “compression” feature, they felt like they were “holding it all in”! The compression tights are awesome! I’m wearing them for indoor cycling classes and my 4 mile runs and they are very comfortable. I could feel a difference in my legs, especially during and after my runs.
Besides offering great merchandise, the store also holds “community runs” on the first and third Thursdays of the month at 6:00 pm. I’m going to make at least of few of these this summer! Check out their Facebook page for details about the runs and other events!
