UPDATE (1/15/13): A lot of folks are none too pleased with pvBody. You can read this post as an example. I'm not sure what to believe, but I do know that they will be using their own line of clothing moving forward. This means you will no longer be getting brands like Nike, American Apparel, etc. If any of you made purchases using my affiliate link, I hope those purchases went smoothy and I apologize for any trouble. And for the uninformed switch up. Know that I feel guilty for standing behind a company that is causing so many problems for so many. Until more is known and issues are resolved, I cannot support pvBody. I thought about taking down this post but decided against it in favor of this statement I am now making. I won't hide my experience, but I also won't promote it further. Proceed with this company as you see fit. Cancel your subscriptions if you feel uncomfortable. And, as always, thank you for reading Daily Dose. Rest assured, I do my best at all times to support products and people that are legitimately cool. Sometimes, I just get fooled.
Before I got married, I lived and worked in a town that was an hour's drive away from my boyfriend (the husband) and my family. So when I didn't have anything to do, I'd do one of two things: Hit the gym or go shopping. I had more disposable income at the time, so I'd scour the racks for awesome deals, casually strolling from one to the next without a care in the world and loving every fashionable minute of it. But I don't have as much time or money for it these days (and when I do, I usually do so in the name of my girl or our house). So the idea of sending off an affordable amount of money in exchange for a new outfit is appealing. And the idea of doing so without having to pick out the outfit, knowing that it'll be exactly what I want when it arrives on my doorstep? Awesomely appealing. Especially when said outfit is well-suited to fitness activities. Which is why I am so excited to be a pv.body affiliate. (You might remember them from this year's gift guide.)
Here's the gist of it: You take a style quiz which ultimately determines what kind of activewear is best-suited to your fitness. For example: Do you run? Yoga? Do you like shorts or capris? Colors? Patterns? Of course, you'll give your size, too. Then you send off $49.95 and wait. (Or, you can save 20% thanks to my affiliate link.) In due time, you'll get a top and a bottom, perfectly matched to your fitness style. And worth at least $100, thanks to clothing from brands like Lululemon and American Apparel. Here's what I got:
If you buy fitness clothing on the regular, or if you wish you had the time to...OR, if you can't seem to find awesome fitness clothing where you live, then this is one of those monthly subscription services that you'll love. For real. $49.95 a month...and I can help you save 20%. (And with that, buying an outfit at Target might be more expensive!) Sure, I get a small kick-back, but let's be honest, I'll use the money to get another box. Because I live in fitness gear. And I love getting mail.
Who doesn't love getting mail?!
Question: What's the one article of fitness clothing you can't live without?
Note: The clothing above was sent to me to review, and I receive a small stipend for every order placed using my affiliate link—but that doesn't impact my thoughts on this company, and all opinions stated above are my own. Seriously, this company is the coolest.
