Puma Power

Need some new cute and super stylish workout gear? Of course you do! And lucky for you, the FBGs have tested some new Puma duds and have a few recommendations. It’s a tough job, but someone has to do it.

The Tank
Puma’s Essential Tank Top is ultra soft and really comfortable (as is to be expected of uber-soft items). The tank also packs in an inner bra for added support and moisture management to keep you dry when you’re working up a healthy sweat. Be aware of the cling factor during “that time of the month” or the “post-holiday-binge when you’re feeling chubby in the tummy” because it is rather form fitting in the middle. A T-shirt style is also available.

The Tights
Jenn and I are both digging on the Puma running tights. In a capri length, these tights are super comfortable, while both keeping your legs warm and managing the moisture factor. The tights also have super hero features, such as a pocket in the back of the waist, and reflective criss-cross print in the back at the knee. Jenn thought these excessively accentuated the beauty of her calves, but I think those muscles definitely need attention drawn to them. She is training for a half marathon, after all, and everyone should know it! I loved how the seam on the rear cuts across the rump, which is more flattering than no butt seam, if you want my opinion. Jenn the running phenom also says that they are whisper-quiet on a run-–no crazy shooshing noises like some lycra has going on.

The Bag
Is your gym bag growing mold? Are you losing items because it has holes in it? Then we’ve got a replacement for you (we really do-–we’re giving one of these bags away!). The new Puma bag is a great size and is large enough to hold a change of clothes, a hair dryer and toiletries for the gym. It’s also modern and stylish, and comes in six colors. With an inner pocket and two outer pockets, you’ll have a choice of places to keep your valuables. When not stuffed with gym gear, the bag can be folded up for storage.

Want to win this beautiful bag or sweet tank? Plead your case by leaving a comment or shooting us an email at contact@fitbottomedgirls.com by Sunday, Feb. 8 to enter to win. We’ll randomly choose a winner at 7 p.m. EST. U.S. residents only, please! —Erin

    I love the bag!!! it looks stylish as a purse but very functional for the gym! 🙂

  2. Erica says:

    Thanks for the reviews- I am always looking for good workout tops. The bag is oh so cute! My gym bag is looking like a mess right now and I could use a new one!

  3. choosinglosing says:

    Thanks for the review. A request: If you find workout clothes that is more modest (short sleeves) could you share with us? I don’t really wear tank tops and I’m reading all these great reviews of workout clothes that I wouldn’t be able to wear and it’s all kinda frustrating! Though I do appreciate your fabulous reviews on here!

    The bag looks fabulous and I would love to win it! Pick me please!

  4. Kristi says:

    Great bag! Since I currently use a Barnes and Noble tote bag for a gym bag, I think I definitely need an upgrade!

  5. pseudostoops says:

    Oh my stars, I need a new gym bag. I currently schlep my stuff to the gym in a crinkled plastic grocery bag. Yes, I suppose I should be commended for recycling, but it’s kind of embarrassing. Also, grocery bags do not have zippers, which is kind of a problem when you’re using them as gym bags. So yeah, I’d really like a great new bag like that.

  6. kd says:

    I would love the bag. I have to carry mine to the office – so a stylish gym bag would so come in handy! 🙂 Thanks for the introduction to other puma gear as well!

  7. Jess says:

    Oh that bag is so much nicer than my old, faded one. Mine is so bad that I’m embarrassed to bring it to the office. I’d looove that new one!

  8. Charlotte says:

    I’m a total Puma junkie! I think they have a really good blend of functional but original workout clothes. Too bad they’re so pricey:(

  9. imadedinner says:

    I NEED THAT BAG!!!!!!! My gym bag is non existent. I swear, I carry my change of clothes in a PLASTIC grocery bag.

  10. textileowl says:

    The tank looks very comfy, all the more reason to get out and start running again. The snow around here has got me housebound!

  11. Brooke says:

    The tank is sooo cute adn looks like it would have some support for ‘the girls’ too!

  12. Rachel Ann says:

    I love that tank and the bag. I commute on the T every morning to my office and go to the gym right afterward, so I always end up carrying 3 pairs of shoes and 2 changes of clothes with me everywhere I go. It’s painful, but I think that bag would make it less so.

  13. Jackie says:

    The bag is beautiful! I could really use a new one, I am still using one from college.

  14. BEELifestyle says:

    It all looks great – my gym bag is stinky and I loathe it more and more each day, I’ve been searching for a new one!

    thanks for the reviews!

  15. DomestiGals says:

    So cute!!

    I basically only train in capri-length tights. SUCH a gym wardrobe necessity.

    xoxo, DomestiGal Jen

  16. tfh says:

    Nice review! I’ve never owned anything Puma, I must confess– I’m digging the tank. I’ve always wanted workout capris, and only one thing held me back: I’m a bit shy about my super-muscular calves, so I loved your comment about how Jenn should show her own beauties off!

  17. Brooke says:

    I need a cute bag to transport my spinning stuff in. I’m using this crazy old drawstring backpack that I got at a 5K a few years back. I’m a spin instructor and it would be great to sport a neat tank as well….my students wouldn’t even recognize the stylish instructor they would have! You guys rock! =)

  18. Aberiah says:

    I am definitely loving the reviews. I would love to get my hands on that tank…and those capris for that matter.

  19. Maren says:

    Thanks for the chance to win the bag.

  20. Cheng says:

    I’ve been in need of a gym bag, so this would be great! I’m also training for a half-marathon in May.

  21. samsam26 says:

    That bag is really cute. It puts a great spin on the typical gym bag! I would love it.

  22. Kristen says:

    Oooh, this is really pretty. Far better than the Mizuno bag I’ve had since junior high. Which, for me, was a Long. Time. Ago.

  23. Chic Runner says:

    That is great and I love the workout top. Running in capris is really easy especially when they are tighter. look for my email because I obviously want to win! :0

  24. denise says:

    I love the bag! I totally need a new one as mine is starting to smell. =(

    The top is cute too, but I wish they made more tops that were less form fitting in the middle. No one needs to see my bulge. =)

  25. Elizabeth says:

    Tahnks so much for the helpful reviews!

  26. 2bhealthyandhappy says:

    Wow… that is a nice bag…. and a great outfit… could use all of it… Good luck for everyone again… I have to say thanks for all the good reviews and the chances to win these products..

  27. Jami says:

    Puma gear has always fit me well, and it’s stylish and lasts. Thanks for the review.

  28. waistbasket says:

    I plead the case for the gym bag, because my last gym bag was the poor victim of Porter(schnauzer). Unfortunately, Porter ate something that didn’t agree with him and the results ended up on/in my old adidas gym bag. Lately I’ve been using a whole foods recycled grocery bag 🙂

  29. TwoDiffSocks says:

    what a wonderful alternative to a typical gym bag. I’d love a bag like this. 😀

  30. Linda says:

    I’m a new subscriber and I absolutely love your reviews. You always seem to be very honest about the products. I think that anything made of spandex is going to show that “holiday dinner”. But I’d wear it with pride! 🙂

  31. Stacy says:

    I love the bag…I need to win b/c I don’t even have a bag yet! I NEED ONE!!!!!

  32. Lara says:

    The Puma Fitness Workout Bag is gorgeous! I just know I would be more motivated to prance into the gym if I was carrying something THAT cute. GREAT find!

  33. Moonlight Dancer says:

    Ooh the bag is fabulous. I had to resort to purchasing Fresh Waves to put inside my smelly gym bag (those boxing gloves can REEK) they are kind of expensive but each little packet lasts a month so it was worth it my bag smells lovely…http://www.fresh-wave.com/ but I’d sure love that bag to put my pretty duds in!

  34. Michelle says:

    Maybe one day I will win…

  35. Caitlin says:

    I would love the bag or the tank top….they would be HUGE upgrades from my used grocery bags (lettuce leaves in your shoes=no fun) and old, faded hanes ribbed tank tops I wear every day:)

  36. Playful Professional says:

    I need new workout clothes and bags. I’d love either of these. I have been working out in high school t-shirts with holes in the armpits, and it’s embarrasing!

  37. Tish says:

    i’ve had the same work out bag since freshmen year of high school. that’s just sick and wrong. 🙁

  38. R says:

    ahh, US residents only..boo!

    Cute bag! I may just go get it myself..so there!


  39. MizFit says:

    I love the bag
    I have to nag
    I want a treat
    something SAH-WEEEET.
    a new gym thang
    to make me smile
    in this ECONOMY

  41. Heather says:

    I love all the giveaways! Thanks for the reviews!

  42. DoubleDigits says:

    Love your blog! I’ve been wondering about those Tracy Anderson dvds – I’m still on the fence.

  43. Heather says:

    Thanks for the review! I could totally use a new gym bag…my old ones strap just ripped this morning while lugging 20 pounds in weights to bootcamp!

  44. Stephanie says:

    I WANT A PUMA BAG!!! If chosen for the bag giveaway I promise to do the following….

    Run 7 miles (The most I have done is 6.2)
    Do 20 pushups ( no cheater knee ones)
    I will pay it forward- and tell all my friends how great FBG is!!!!

  45. Senora Muertos says:

    I need a gym bag, bad! I am currently using one of my kids hand me down back packs from school. I’m frugal and there is nothing wrong with it other than the child is now in middle school and could not be seen carrying a Sponge Bob back pack. Sponge Bob is cool, right?! LOL!

  46. Diana (and her 2 kitties, bella+kealy says:

    Grrreat bag. Girlie, but not too girlie! The tank looks like it would everyone’s shoulders look yummy!!

  47. farmwife says:

    Wow, nice bag! I’d love to have one of those myself 🙂 I use an old shopping bag, lol

  48. Kym says:

    that bag is niiiiiiice! i got a pair of pink suede velcro pumas randomly when i was about 14, and wore them until the soles literally fell off when i was 20. i replaced them with 4 new pairs of pumas as well as a puma jacket 😀

  49. Lori says:

    I think I’m testing my luck by trying to win this too, but I’m doing it anyway! I love all things puma – purses, shoes, clothes. I think it has something to do with my soccer background. I just love their style.

  50. Renae says:

    YAY!!! New workout stuff!!!

    LOVE the bag! I want it, I want it, I want it.

    Who knew that they would start making gym bags that look so cool?

  51. sarah says:

    i would LOVE that bag

  52. moonduster says:

    Ooh! I definitely need new workout clothes. I’ve lost a lot of weight and now all of my workout clothes are too big and loose on me.

  53. Mallory says:

    Oh please please please pick me! I use a plastic sack for my ‘gym bag’ and could really use something classy and cute like this! Pretty please!?

  54. QL girl says:

    I could definitely use a bag, so I hope I win!

  55. Laura says:

    The bag looks really nice, but I never really use a gym bag as my gym is on the ground floor of my apartment 🙂 The tank looks pretty nice though!

  56. mfagamers says:

    that bag is super cute and so functional!

  57. Nicole says:

    Oohh…i forgot to comment the first time around! I love this bag. I need to try to stop stuffing my workout clothes into my laptop bag…with my lunch. 🙂

  58. Reva Skie says:

    That is a sylish gym bag, mine is an old beat up, “guy” bag.

  59. Kate says:

    Would love to win the gym bag or the tank. You ladies rock!

  60. Dianna says:

    All of these items are so stylish. I covet them all.

  61. HangryPants says:

    I would love to win the bag so I can stop using a Target shopping bag!

  62. Niicoollaa says:

    I could totally use that bag! I’m still using an old canvas bag my mom was given years ago at a teacher’s convention.

  63. Beth says:

    Thanks again for this giveaway. I’m totally in love with the tank already! I posted about it (and you gals!): http://muffinlovechick.blogspot.com/2009/02/new-workout-duds.html

  64. mrose says:

    Maybe with the right gear and feeling cute, I might be able to push my slow trot to a quicker jog! And the bag would be the perfect accessory. Thank you for the information!

  65. Flores Hayes says:

    my roomate is THRILLED with her bag!
    she won’t put it down!!!
