GET The BEST REVIEWS from my personal research
Exercise is considered vital for maintaining mental fitness, and it also reduces stress. Studies show that working out in a group lowers stress by 26 percent and significantly improves your quality of life.
I want more of that!
Working out with others is one thing I missed the most during Covid. While we’re not at the end of that particular tunnel, gyms are open, and I’m ready to get back in shape.
I’ve been shopping for some new fitness gear and made some choices that I’m going to share here.

Here’s an all-around basic tank top that I wear under everything.
Women’s Slim-Fit Tank
Rated 4 1/2 stars by over 36k people, you can’t get a much better rating for a basic product. This ‘Amazon-Essentials’ is a must-have staple for your current wardrobe.
It’s made of 58% breathable cotton, 39% eco-friendly modal, and 3% spandex to hug you gently. Comes in lots of different colors. My choice was black, as I wear these under almost everything.
These tanks are machine washable, and they don’t shrink. They’re slightly tailored through the waist and feel so soft.
- wide straps that can hide your bra straps
- great for sleeping
- fits as expected
- the fabric holds its shape
These capris are exactly what I needed for my weekly yoga class.
Women’s Activewear Cotton Stretch Flare Capri
Amazon’s best choice for yoga capris; these are comfy and fit as advertised.
The black ones are 92% cotton with 8% spandex for stretch. The charcoal ones are 55% cotton, 37% polyester with 8% spandex for stretch. Machine wash and dry
They’re easy to pull on and are fully machine washable. You want your workout wear to move with you, and these cotton-stretch capris fit the bill.
They have an extra-wide waistband for comfort and style. This activewear offers a slim fit and a slightly flared leg opening at the calf.
- they have a pocket!

Home Fitness Party
If you absolutely can’t go to a group class, consider having a fitness party at home.
