My siblings have been pretty darn instrumental to getting me in shape. My brother was the one that challenged me to set a date for the couch to 5km program. And when I’d finished that {barely!} my sister, Amanda Claire, was insistent I join the gym with her. Since then my confidence in what my body can do and my fitness have come along by leaps and bounds. I’m proud ongoingly of what I’ve achieved. When Virtu let me know that the new season Virtu Active items were coming out and that they would be happy to send some, I asked if I could get a couple of items for my sister. They said they’d love to see us show off our gear together! Which of course, we were more than happy to do.

I am wearing the Large {20/22} and my sister is wearing the XXS {12/14}. So now even more of you out there can see what it might look like on you. If, you know, you look like us. Sort of. And are short like my sis or tall like me. I think it’s a great reminder that this range goes from a 12-24 and that there are cotton items, mesh breathable fabric in some. Short and long pants. Leggings and shorts. Something for everyone who wants to work out. Or just lounge in comfort which I do plenty in mine before and after the gym. Ha! Now. Let’s check us ooooout.

I’m going to fess up here and say while we LOVE the colours of the new season but these pants did our heads in. We are used to working out in shorts, leggings or full length pants. My sister was the first to wear hers and we just assumed they were so much longer than my other pants because she’s a short ass. But when I put mine on, they really are a completely different cut. I think they would be great for ladies with large legs and calves because they have plenty more room than the Evolution Crop Leggings I already own. Not that the Energise Crop Pants don’t offer all the great features and benefits of the others but we both found that we rolled them up when wearing them. Especially on leg press type machines. so not really for us. Luckily the range has expanded such that there are options for everyone. I plan on ordering the Evolution long pant for myself in the upcoming weeks.

 

How great are the new season colours!? I’m loving the softer, more sherbet colour of my new top {I have the others in blue and orange as well}. The pinks are gorgeous! The grey offers a little less coverage of lumps and bumps than the black, but isn’t that just the way colour goes. I asked for the top for myself and the tank for Amanda Claire. I almost wish I had ordered the tank too. It has great lines, mesh inserts and flat seems like the other tops. But for me, maybe in the XL to allow a bit more room to breath. You know, out. Haha. Amanda Claire was saying she will probably order some of the tops. Too bad we aren’t the same size, we could have swapped.

Prepare yourself. This is the part of the post where I said to my sis, you know what would be GREAT!? Us, jumping off the wall. Only, I don’t land that well any more. Haha. It took ages to time the remote and get SOMETHING on camera. so there is a lot of messy around. Almost falling off the wall ledge. Lame jumps {on my behalf} and laughing. So for your viewing pleasure, us being active in our Virtu Active wear. Try not to pee your pants laughing.
