Good Morning!

How was everyone’s weekend?  I had a busy one!  I was pretty much in a food coma all weekend and let me tell you why:  Chicken pad Thai and sushi Friday night, Fish N Chips Saturday Blinkers, and a chicken burrito from Chipotle on Sunday, holy cow!  I can’t believe I ate all that one in weekend!  We had to stay with the Mexican theme on Sunday for Cinco De Mayo right?

I also got to see my father in law cook for the first time!  He made blackened tuna taco’s with salsa verde.  It was all delicious but I just couldn’t eat a big meal after such a big lunch.

Now, I want to get to something fun!  I’ve been doing crossfit now for about three months and I think in it apparent how much I enjoy it!  A while back Lindsay from Latitude Gear Rx contacted me asking if I wanted to try out some of their crossfit clothing.  Of course I said YES!

Latitude Gear RX was started by crossfit athletes so  “As believers in the spirit of constant reinvention, our mission is to incorporate this cultural energy and inspiration in our efforts to provide a brand with a different type of perspective, and to subsequently create quality, comfortable, progressive apparel for CrossFitters, by CrossFitters.”

The originators of this clothing line were so determined and driven every time they saw athletes walk into a crossfit gym so they wanted to put that positive energy into a physical product that would encompass that same feeling they saw and felt in themselves every single day.

They sent me 3 tank tops to review and I was so excited to wear them now that it’s getting warm out!  First up it the WOD Hard Tank top.

This one is my favorite! I love the bright colors and I got this one in a size small.

Lift Something Heavy Tank

I have worn this one a few times already and really love it.

All are racerback tanks which are very LIGHT weight which is perfect for intense workouts in HOT weather!  I got a Medium in the second two tank tops so they would be LONG enough.  I also don’t like my tank tops too tight so the mediums fit perfectly!

They have Men’s and Women’s clothing with size charts for each item.  I think the size charts are accurate to an extent. I originally got a small in one of the tank tops and it fit very snug, so If I were you I would go up one size if you want some wiggle room 🙂

Latitude Gear Rx is very easy to work with and they are very accommodating  If you are not happy with the product, they have a great return/exchange program.  But believe me, I think you will be happy with your purchases!   You can find them on Facebook ,Twitter, and Pinterest

Now it is your chance to win!   Latitude Gear Rx has been so kind to give one lucky FCC reader the chance to win one piece of clothing!   Of course these can be worn anywhere, not just to crossfit so if you like to lift heavy but don’t workout at a crossfit gym you can still wear this clothing 🙂
