Christina talks about her experience with our client Reebok’s latest fitness apparel line, EasyTone.
Background: The idea behind the line is that the clothes inspire women to move with intention.
The ResisTone resistance bands in the tops are designed to improve posture and correct alignment during activity.
The resistance bands in the bottoms are designed to tone and strengthen muscles while you move.
To help me stick to my New Year’s resolution, I was given the opportunity to test out the recently launched EasyTone apparel from Reebok.
Armed with Reebok’s black EasyTone capris and black EasyTone sleeveless shirt, I decided to put these clothes through the ringer. Over three weeks, I wore it to the weight room, spin class and the kickboxing studio.
Reebok gear helped Christina pull this move off (almost).
My initial impression of the gear (before attempting to workout) was that it looked pretty cute, and I was excited to sport the outfit in public. The cut of the capris is very flattering and the top is the perfect length, hitting at the hip bone, just where I like my shirt to end. The fit was a little tighter than the usual workout gear, but after a few minutes of strutting around the house, I felt my inner fitness diva coming out.
After my first few workouts, I noticed I like these clothes better than other fitness clothing I’ve worn, hands down. The built-in resistance bands in the shirt made me stand up straighter (or while I was spinning, sit up straighter). I’m a bit of a sloucher, so anything that can improve this is a definite bonus!
The resistance bands in the pants are invisible, which, in my opinion, made them more comfortable. I could feel them making my legs work twice as hard, and felt like they were toning even more intensely.
Added bonus: the bottoms are made from thicker material than most other gear, causing any bumps or lumps (everyone has them!) to be flattened and smoothed out. I also noticed that sweat evaporated off the material very quickly. Amazing.

I recommend the EasyTone gear to anyone that wants a workout with added benefits, like improved posture or a toned derrière. Plus, the fact that they’re stylish helps when you’re hitting the gym, track, trail or even shopping for groceries!
EasyTone apparel is available at select Sport Chek locations across Canada.
EasyTone bottoms include pants ($79.99), capri pants ($69.99) and shorts ($54.99, coming in April).
