Soybu Apparel Review and #Giveaway #WinAllThePrizes

This is a review and a GIVEAWAY post. This giveaway has an added bonus of a linkup that offers several other giveaways at the bottom of this post. Enter to #WinAllthePrizes and please add your giveaway too!

There are some things that just aren't right. Like MLB baseball managers wearing a player's uniform. As if Jim Leyland was going to take over first base or pinch hit at age 70 for the Detroit Tigers. The
other thing that doesn't feel right is wearing my running clothes when I head to the gym for cross training, weights, or (rare) sweat yoga session. While I generally don't care what I look like at the gym, I do care about feeling comfortable with what I'm wearing depending on the workout.

At this year's Fitbloggin conference, local (Denver-based) Soybu had a fashion show and handed out a nice piece to each of the attendees. Their long-sleeve Kinetic Storm became one of my favorite new shirts. I've gone to the point of hiding it from my teenage son who's also a triathlete and discovered he's the same size as me. While much of Soybu's apparel is oriented towards women and yoga fitness, they also have an expanding line of men's clothing. I was impressed by the fact that Soybu embraced all body types as they offer a wide range of sizes (many they had in the Fitbloggin' fashion show.)

They won't say it, but I will--they struck me as the anti-Lululemon company. I could never bring myself to buy their men's clothing as it seemed pretentious and that was before the controversy last year. Given all that, I reached out to Soybu and they gratiously provided a couple pieces for me to test drive. (I received no other compensation for this post, and the opinions contained herein are mine.)
If you've been following my journey of late, I have been working hard on rehabilitating a torn labrum in my hip, so since the middle of May, I have 25-30 minutes a day of stretching and strength work combined with a lot of cross-training vs. running 6-7 days a week. I have been wearing the Kinetic Short-sleeve Storm shirt and Samurai Short Storm gym shorts. They tout the shorts as the perfect "gym to life" shorts and I must say I have to agree. Given the summer temps in Colorado, and working out of the house, I'm always in shorts.

The Samurai's allow me to go from home office, to my physical therapy, and function as my workout clothes when I'm doing my strength work in the gym or on the yoga mat at home. They have a blend of lightweight fabric and stretchable fabric they move with all my stretches, but are light enough for running or other cross-training. The shirt is an anti-wicking material that's also light-weight with an athletic vs. "boxy" gym shirt. Can you say "crazy comfortable?"

My only complaint is they hadn't come out with black which is now available in the shorts.

Now onto the really fun stuff. Soybu has generously provided one item of your choice from their website for the winner in the giveaway posted below.  I have also teamed with RunningwithSDMom.com and EricaFinds.com in their #WinAllThePrizes #Linkup.
