Adidas Women’s Product Review: The Right Apparel Makes A Big Difference

I believe in the adage that when you look good you feel good.  This carries over into the gym.

In this post, I will be reviewing apparel from the Adidas Women’s collection that makes you feel like a high performance athlete.

The first thing I noticed about the Ultimate Training Tights as I was pulling them on was the motivational quote on the inside, front.  I love positive quotes.  They move me to action.  I have an entire section dedicated to them on my blog (Inspirational Vitamin).

The quote inside of the tights reads “Before you quit remember why you started.”

On this dreary day, I wanted to stay in bed and watch horrible lifetime movies, but seeing this quote gave me the extra push needed to keep going.

These tights pass the squat, lunge and stretch test. I can bend without the tights rolling down my waist.


These tights are made of moisture-wicking Climalite fabric.  Climalite pulls the sweat away from the skin and moves it to the outside of the fabric where it can evaporate quickly.


The bonded waistband also provides comfort and support with high compression that hugs the muscles during training.  In addition, the tights are made from recycled polyester which saves resources and decreases emission. Why not save the planet while working out?!

The emblem on the hip is reflective ensuring optimum visibility in low light.

The strappy bra is ideal for low impact exercises.  The strappy construction keeps you ventilated.  If you have a small bust this is the bra for you.  As with the tights, this bra is also made with a reflective emblem.

The Performer Strappy Tank is also made with the Climalite fabric, keeping you cool dry and comfortable.

I ended my workout with a childhood favorite…hula hooping!  Or more like “hula walking”! Look ma…no hands! <- I couldn’t resist.

Whether you choose yoga, cycling or the gym…these garments are ideal.
