We've all been there. We have on a new pair of leggings and we're about to do the “mirror test”. You know exactly what I am talking about, sister. Where you stand in front of your full length mirror in the bathroom and bend over to check and make sure that the “best leggings ever” really are the best leggings ever and the whole gym is not going to see your business when you bend over. Where are the amazing workout clothes that everyone keeps claiming they have?
I'm pretty sure we all know that all leggings are not created equally.
If your leggings are the material of panty hose then they are not for the gym, sister. Okay? In fact, make sure you're wearing a skirt or something if they're that thin. I love leggings but they are NOT all the same.
When I say that I have been through some workout clothes… I really do mean I have been through some workout clothes. I've paid as little as $3 to as much as $70 in search of high quality workout clothing. Some of these workout clothes have been great, and some… well, let's just say that I have put a finger through a few of the leggings of different brands I've gotten they were so thin.
The amount of different types of shirts and leggings I've had are pretty much endless. Cotton, Spandex, polyester… I'm sure I was dumb enough at one point to buy wool. You know, to keep things interesting.
As this blog has grown….
I wanted to find a clothing brand that I could recommend to you with 100% confidence. Not just from a quality perspective but if there is ever an issue with the clothing, their customer service would jump on it right away.
When I started this blog in late spring of 2017, my inspiration was women. I wanted to empower women to be strong and healthy and live the best life they possibly can while loving the skin they are in. Everyone has room to make improvements to themselves but we are not going for perfection here, we're going for progress. My goal is to enable women to be strong and not just skinny. Skinny does not equal healthy.
Enter Just Strong Clothing. The below is pulled directly from their website and it is absolute perfection because it lines up exactly with what I am working towards for you, my strong woman reader. See the below quote pulled directly from their site:
“We are are a lifestyle brand for strong women. Whether you are an experienced lifter, a new starter or have simply overcome great adversaries in your life, the JustStrong community is here to make sure you never give up.
Our symbol – the squat.
The squat is the perfect analogy for life – it's about standing back up after something heavy gets you down and what better way to present this analogy by using it in our branding. We are here to empower and motivate strong women from every walk of life.
We want you to never give up and to stay strong physically and mentally. Just like the squat, our clothing is a symbol of standing back up, fighting against any resistance life throws at you and becoming stronger. This is the idea of where our company was born. Motivate strong women to overcome their adversaries and embrace their strength, no matter the source.
Join our growing community and help us promote our message. Be strong.”
Now THAT is a message I can get behind; and I did!
I was super excited when I was approved to be their affiliate. To say I was pumped to get to try out the clothes and get them reviewed for you is quite the understatement. You being able to make a purchase of quality workout clothing with confidence is invaluable. If you have been around my blog long, you know that I do not promote anything that I have not tried myself or know for 100% fact that they are high quality.
Since first starting as their affiliate I now have a closet full of their clothes I love them that much. They have a t-back shirt that says “he asked me to clean so I did 3 sets of 10” and another one that says “Weights Before Dates” Which I have and have gotten many compliments on. It's the pink shirt at the top of this post. Don't judge my just worked out hair, okay? 🙂
You girls know I give it to you straight- so let's go through the pros and cons
I live in the Southern United States and it gets super hot here and is fairly warm most of the year. That said, I work out most of the time in an outdoor environment. Whether it is running or at the Crossfit Box where there is no air, I need quality clothing that breathes. Sweat is a real struggle in my world and anything that is not that super soft material will rub raw spots on my arms and legs. Just Strong clothes are soft and I have not gotten a single raw spot while working out or running.
Remember me talking in the top paragraph about panty hose level of thinness in leggings? You don't get that with Just Strong Clothing. Their bottoms are legitimately squat proof. Don't believe me? The proof is in the squat. Below is a video of me doing a 70 pound front squat in the Space Silver Just Strong Leggings.
I really only have one negative thing to say and that is on one of the t-backs that I got, the logo started to lift after one wash. This had not happened on any of the other 6 articles of clothing I had gotten, nor the headband, or the shaker bottle. Keeping in mind that I have put the shaker bottle through the dishwasher several times and it still looks awesome.
On the note of the negative I mentioned above, they have amazing customer service. Very prompt and friendly and will address any issue you have should you come across one.
To be perfectly honest, I think it might have been a simple defect considering none of my other tops or pants had that problem of lifting off.
“What if I don't like it?”
No problem, you can return it according to their return policy, sister. This is their return policy pulled directly from their site :
“We have a 30 day money back guarantee on all our products to ensure that every customer is completely satisfied. If you aren't, you can return it for a full refund. You may also return for exchanges. This does not include personalized items or shipping. Please use the contact page if you wish to return a product and we will send you your respective address and instructions.”
Summing it all up
Never ever ever do I want to sound like a sales person to you. I hate it when someone “tries to sell me something”. How many times have you had someone try to sell you something just to make a buck? We all have. I can promise you this; that I will never try to sell you something just to make a buck. I will tell you about it if I believe that it will be beneficial to you whether I get paid for it or not. Case and point- on my Instagram Story just today I showed you what I use on my hair to smooth out the frizz. Will I get paid for that? Nope, but it works for me so I wanted to tell you about it.
I'm an affiliate for Just Strong Clothing, but I have done the research and I promise you that you will not be disappointed.
I have a client who purchased the Jet Black Just Strong Leggings and she loves them. She was self conscious about wearing leggings but when she got these, she was comfortable in them because of the thick waste band and she was not afraid that “her business” would be on display during her workouts. We've been working together just over a month and she is becoming more and more comfortable with herself! Just this week, she has decided she doesn't need a sweatshirt to ‘cover herself up' (by the way she never had to cover herself, but it was a self conscious thing. I totally get wanting to cover yourself up when the confidence isn't there.) These leggings along with the workouts I've given her to do have given her the confidence to take off the sweatshirt.
There you have it!
