RBX Activewear at T.J. Maxx

I’ve written about RBX Activewear before…and it is still one of my favorite brands for workout gear. I bought two new pieces recently that I wanted to share with you.

But first…can we talk about how marathon training officially started yesterday??? Who else started training for Chicago Marathon, or will start soon? I’m excited that I will be working with Coach Marc again, though also equally as nervous. He just sent me this email today:

We’re going to totally mix it up – some day hard hills, some days long repeats…and then a combination of all of them.  The mileage will be comfortably uncomfortable and you’ll be tired.  All the time.  It’ll be so important for you to take care of yourself and give yourself every opportunity to race fast at Chicago.

I lifted for the first time in months yesterday and was sore before I even went to bed last night. Woke up super sore. Sad thing is I did 3 sets of KB single leg deaflits + rows, KB squat, KB sumo squat, KB overhead press and cable leg kickbacks. All with like 15 pounds. My hamstrings and inner thighs are killing me. But gotta get back into it…I need a PR this fall! *knock on wood*

Okay anyway, let’s get into RBX Activewear. You can find some of their pieces at T.J. Maxx for really great prices. Both my top and bottom in these pictures were $9.99. 

I took these photos on Sunday at the NYRR Retro 4 Miler in Central Park (which was awesome by the way!).

The shorts are colorblocked with grey and green (had to match with my Tiux socks!). The main thing I love about these shorts are that they’re high-waisted. So they aren’t falling down or riding up.

The top is a very similar material to lululemons swiftly tanks, so very soft and comfortable. One thing I didn’t like is that it’s a bit low cut for me in the front, so I had to wear a higher cut sports bra. Otherwise, it would not be a pretty sight while running ;)

The front and back are ruched, and the shirt itself is on the longer side, which I also like. Because of the ruching, it is more fitted towards the waist, so you don’t have to worry about your shirt flapping in the wind or riding up.

Head over to T.J. Maxx or Marshall’s and check out RBX Activewear. I know in the past I have said I don’t like tanks for running, but I think I am a fan now! I still need something to wipe my sweat, but tanks do make me feel a bit cooler than t-shirts.

Up next, race wise, is the Oakley Mini 10K this Saturday. Anyone else running?

Where do you shop when you’re on a budget?

T.J. Maxx Activewear

We all want cute workout clothes right? Good quality…but also makes you feel and look good while exercising. Well, T.J. Maxx has a huge variety of activewear; and the prices make it even better!

I outlined a few places you can buy gym clothes without breaking the bank, but T.J. Maxx has a great selection in and of itself. Plus, you can order right online if there isn’t one near you.

I went on their website to do some online shopping for you all, and found a lot of great items. I’m not familiar with all of the brands they carry, so I’m only listing the ones I have tried and love: MPG, 90 Degree and RBX. They really are great quality, and as I mentioned in this video the materials used are pretty close to brands like lululemon.

If you don’t feel like splurging on workout clothes, check out these items on the T.J. Maxx website!

Shorts

New Balance Boylston Mini Shorts – $14.99

I didn’t mention these above, but we know New Balance is a good brand, and I love anything in coral!

90 Degree Ruched Side Stretch Shorts – $12.99

I have similar shorts from 90 Degree and they really are pretty comparable to the lululemon spandex shorts.

MPG Electrolyte Compression Shorts – $16.99

Pants

RBX Stretch Yoga Capri Pants – $14.99

90 Degree Athletic Capri Pants – $14.99

No really, I love coral-I need these!

Tops

90 Degree Ruched Sleeves Zip Yoga Jacket – $24.99

Love the thumbholes-looks perfect for spring running. I actually got a similar jacket from Old Navy too!

RBX Heather Long Sleeve Top – $12.99

I have this top as well, and let me tell you, it is so soft! You can wear it to the gym or for running, but you can also wear it as an everyday casual top.

90 Degree Ruched Racerback Tank – $9.99 (!)

MPG Adora Bra Tank Top – $16.99

I really like the back of this top as well.

So there you have it folks. A bunch of great and cute stuff at T.J. Maxx. I also find these brands at Marshall’s, which is similar (and I believed owned by the same people) as T.J. Maxx. You can find a lot of things that look like higher-end stuff, and I’m all about that!

Do you shop at T.J. Maxx?

What are your favorite places to get workout clothes?
