As a passionate health and fitness enthusiast, I am ALWAYS looking for the best activewear on a budget. Sure, there are plenty of affordable brands out there, but most of the brands I’ve tried haven’t been the best quality.
Recently, my mom gifted me a leggings and sports bra set from JoyLab, a Target-exclusive brand. Immediately after opening the gift, I was already impressed. Not only was the color and design of the set gorgeous, but the feel of the material was thick and soft to the touch.
I know better than to trust first appearances, though, so I decided to put the set to the test at an intense crossfit-style bootcamp. The results were far from disappointing!
The high-waisted ⅞ leggings are the perfect length for my 5’2” body, and the waistband secured snugly just at my waistline. I was definitely impressed with the fit of the pants, but would they stay in place throughout an intense bootcamp?
This particular bootcamp included running, medicine ball squat tosses and sled pushes and I didn’t have to tug the waistband up or adjust the leggings throughout the whole session! Since receiving these, they have been perfect for both high-intensity cardio sessions and low-impact barre workouts.
Bonus: Each pair of JoyLab leggings only costs $35, which is less than half of most brands!
The other item that I tested out on this day was the seamless mesh racerback sports bra. The bra itself features a high neckline and tasteful mesh cutouts, making it the perfect workout crop top. But, I was skeptical if the material would offer the support I needed during cardio movies.
Unfortunately, this sports bra fell just short of the support I look for in a high-quality sports bra, BUT it has been perfect for low-impact workouts with no jumping. What I love most about this bra, though, is how sweat-absorbant the fabric is!
Overall, JoyLab offers incredibly high-quality products for very reasonable prices and I can’t wait to fill my activewear collection with more of its pieces!
