Karin and Rebecca, friends from high school always dreamed about owning a business.. Together they opened a bridal store in Northeast Ohio.Gretchen and Keri created System of Strength in 2012 in a glorified storage unit. Gretchen tells us, “5 ½ years later and hundreds of small stepping stones in between, we now have 3 SOS studios in Columbus, and an online digital studio and nutrition program that gives you access to SOS worldwide. Keri and I created The System based off of what our body needs; cardio, strength, stretch, and recovery.” As a busy mom of 2 with a full time job she understands the importance of efficient workouts.
Something White Bridal. s a gorgeous space for brides to find the perfect dress and their entire wedding look. These ladies take such personal care and effort for each of their brides making it an unforgettable experience.
Fashion Focus (Splurge 💲💲💲 vs. Save 💲on Workout Gear)
Have you ever had an ill fitting un-supportive sports bra? It pretty much kills your mood and your workout. Sports bras are the basis of our workout outfit so this is a time to splurge and buy a handful of supportive, quality bras that are extremely comfortable. Once you find one that works for you scoop up a few! Our favorite is the Nike Rival.
Tanks: Save 💲
Yes we want fashionable workout tops but tanks are an area you can save. They all do the same thing and dishing out $75+ on one top is not worth it. Look for neutral colors to mix and match with your cute bras and leggings. We are loving these simple racerback tanks from Old Navy. Scope out sales on high end brands for huge savings on tanks too!
Leggings: Splurge 💲💲💲
So yes we wear leggings often, pretty much our daily uniform. But every pair of leggings does not need to be a splurge. Invest in at least 2 pairs of high performance leggings. Most important is comfort and fabric, do they stay in place when moving? We love a cropped legging because it suits just about every workout and activity. Our go to is the Outdoor Voices TechSweat ¾ Legging.
Jacket/Windbreaker: Save 💲
As long as the fabric is waterproof and breathable there’s no need to spend a lot of money on your outer layer. Ok if you are training for an extreme sport and you know there will be some crazy weather that’s a different story. We are talking about an outer layer to get your through spring into summer to throw over your workout clothes. We love the colors and trendy workout clothes of JoyLab at Target, check out this camp windbreaker for only $24!
