Under Armour Review
I was super excited when Under Armour reached out to me to collaborate with them! It’s been years since I’ve worn Under Armour and was glad to give them another go.
My favorite item that I purchased back in the day was their Knockout Tank Top ($35). This top came with an elastic strap racerback design and it would show off all my favorite strappy bras.
I received the following products to review:
- UA Seamless Low Long Bra ($35) – This bra is super soft and comfy. It fits true to size and comes in many colorways.
- UA RUSH™ Swacket ($150) – I love this cropped jacket. It’s super lightweight, wind resistant, and great for layering. The ombre gradient looks fun and I always get compliments when wearing this jacket.
- UA Motion Ankle Leggings ($45) – These leggings ran SUPER SMALL. I would definitely need a size large for it to fit comfortably. I also noticed a price discrepancy. Online, the leggings were listed as $55 but the hang tag states the leggings are only $45.
- UA Branded Crop ¼ Zip ($50) – I LOVE this top. It’s cropped and slim fitting. I recommend sizing up for a more comfortable fit.
- UA HOVR™ Phantom 2 IntelliKnit Slip Running Shoes ($140) – UA’s HOVR sneakers are unmatched. I love the laceless design. I find that UA footwear runs smaller compared to other brands. I typically wear a street size 7 and size up a half size in sneakers and the UA size 7.5 felt snug. I could have gone with a size 8 for a more comfortable fit. I still kept the show because it has a super supportive sole. I wear thin socks with my HOVRs.
- UA Loudon Crossbody ($25) – This 4L capacity bag is super lightweight and durable. I love the rose pink color and that it converts from a crossbody to a backpack! For the price, you definitely get a lot of bang for your buck! Make a bigger size and I’m all in!
- UA ArmourVent™ Warrior Bucket 2.0 Hat ($30) – I love this bucket hat! It fits my large head and has a chin strap that prevents it from being blown away. It’s also super lightweight and packable. I hope UA makes this in bright and fun colors.
Under Armour Pros
- High-Quality Fabrics – UA makes their apparel from new and recycled fabrics. The fabrics are durable.
- Highly Compressive – Their activewear offers a lot of compression. We recommend sizing up if you want something to fit more comfortably.

- Free Shipping and Returns – For orders over $99, enjoy free shipping and returns.
- Sustainably Made – The majority of their products are made from recycled polyester fibers and UA has a circular system that recycles old clothes to create new products. Read about all their sustainability efforts here.

Under Armour Cons

- Does not offer an instructor discount program. A student discount program is offered, but not one for fitness professionals.
