Pilates + prAna gear = Fashionable Monika (& a giveaway!)

By Tuesday, June 26, 2012 31 Permalink 0

It’s no secret that I have started actually working out for the first time in my life, but I am finally┬ástarting to dress the part as well! My workout attire had consisted of startup t-shirts and tights from Target, but now I have a little more style while working out, thanks to prAna!

They’ve got my back, literally. They were nice enough to gift me with the following active wear pieces (and boy are they comfy)!

They gave me the Mackenzie Knickers, the Quinn Chakara top and the Kira top:

I mean look how cute I look at 6:00 am!

And? I look even more stylish when actually doing Pilates.

I picked up the clothes at their brand new Cherry Creek location, and couldn’t help but look around. It was such a nice store:


They had so many cute sundresses in there as well. I didn’t have enough time to shop (was headed to a concert), so I am going to have to go back soon for some new clothes. prAna’s clothes are perfect for the music festival season that is now upon us.

prAna was also nice enough to give me Mackenzie Knickers and Quinn Top to give away to one of my readers! Comment below and tell me what activities you would do if you won this new outfit! Follow or like prAna for more chances to enter!

    I’m in the process of moving to downtown Denver, and one of my goals when I get there is to purchase a bike. I hope to ride to Cuernavaca/Commons park where I can run around, relax and read! That’s what I’d do!

    I’m a HUGE prAna fan and was totally devastated when my car was broken into and my fave prAna top was stolen. I’d love to sport the knickers and top climbing in the cascades this summer! And who am I kidding, this is my go-to weekend wear!

    You look absolutely ADORABLE Monika <3 <3 <3 If I won this gear from Prana I would wear it to Yoga and out Rock Climbing this summer.

    I would look WAY cuter in that Prana outfit than I do now riding my bike to Yoga Rocks The Park and other outdoor yoga this summer. I really need to up my work-out gear if I’m going to spend all-day socializing in it. (I hit the farmers market after.) Btw…you look amazing– love the pilates pic!

  • Nancy

    I’d go trail running in these if I won!

    my wife would take our sweet little babe estie on long walks with the runner and maybe even get back into the yoga poses too!

    I’ll meet Clare at Bar Method, then stand at the bar wheezing during calf exercises. HOW DO THEY HURT SO BAD???

    I’d also probably play roller derby in the knickers. Because, come on, derby knickers. Knickers. I just like saying knickers.

    I’d totally rock prana gear at my crossfit classes :-D

  • Todd

    If I won, I’d use these to lure my wife into actually doing yoga with me :)

  • Sarah Jane

    I would rock these running on the trails of Boulder! (Or maybe a treadmill when it’s a bajillion degrees outside!)

    I’ve been doing Pilates for about a month and I LOVE it – these would be a perfect addition to my wardrobe. (Especially since I’m in the same sports tees and target tights) :)

  • Jana

    It would be my new attire for all of my Soul Cycle spin classes!! I’m in NYC, and even when working out the girls are all decked out, halp!

    (This is Soul Cycle, BYW, amazing http://www.soul-cycle.com/)

  • Nicole

    I’d wear it to my twice-weekly pilates mat classes with @PolasPilates.

  • Melissa

    I *love* PrAna’s clothes. My whole wardrobe would be PrAna if I could afford it. :) I’d love the new clothes to wear when I hike this summer.

    Given this time of year… Yoga in the Park.

  • Lydia

    I would do some of the Yoga I’ve been wanting to do!

  • Hannah

    I’m 20 years young and happily sport prAna while teaching yoga. My love for yoga’s meditative movements and the outdoors led me to climbing, which has allowed me to rock (pun intended) prAna’s gear inside AND out. The clothing itself is so comfortable and versatile – I’m hooked!

  • bri

    Like you I’m getting back in to working out, so I would try the yoga classes at my local gym and of course I would fit right in with this stylish outfit!

    As I broke college student I too own my fair share of target clearance rack target clothes. Between being an intern at a non-profit that helps college students cope with loss, school, and my part time job life gets a little hectic sometimes.There’s only one thing in this world that makes it all melt away. Climbing. I’d probably climb even if I only had rags to wear, but something a little more feminine and fashionable would be awesome.

    Plus having something you could wear to the gym and then head straight to class without looking like a hot mess would be a plus too!

    For sure yoga :)

    But I might also hike in it.

    Love their stuff.

  • Lauren (Hiking Mama)

    If I won, you’d find me hiking, running and doing yoga in my new prAna clothes :)

    Hiking in my neighborhood as soon as the caution tape is removed and we are allowed back into Open Space!

  • Erin

    I would do yoga for sure in those clothes~

  • Keely

    If I won these I would talk a big game about yoga and pilates while sitting comfortably in them on my couch, watching reruns of Revenge.

  • Erin

    Definitely to the gym, while walking the dogs, hiking, when I get up in the morning (cuz if I’m dressed to work out the chances that I will are better,) climbing, if I’m lucky enough to work from home, for sure to Starbucks, and because I’ve been in Boulder for a decade probably to Target or lunch because I think it’s ok.

  • Kimberley Byer

    Just traded in my target yoga pants for some Prana knickers for climbing and I LOVE them!

    Love PrAna!!! Monika you look adorable :) get more colors! I would wear PrAna to my aerial dance classes — the t-shirts I’m wearing right now actually restrict me to a certain extent. I would also wear these clothes to climb, to yoga, to Pilates, to dance, to sleep, to dates… :)
