Lifting the Dream

I’ve shared on here how much I enjoy lifting weights, almost as much as I enjoy running. Not only does it help prevent aches and pains (and injuries) from running, and make you a more efficient runner, but it feels pretty badass to lift heavy things. Especially as a woman who has been told that bulky muscles “aren’t ladylife” and blah blah blah. It feels good to feel strong.

And I was really excited to try some new apparel from the brand Lifting the Dream, which was founded by Malia who claims she is “always chasing the feeling of strength.” I feel ya. Through the fashionable and functional gear, she hopes to empower women and men to value their strength, not just the number they see on the scales. Whether you’re a ripped fitness pro, or jumping back in after having a baby, or taking your first step in your fitness adventure, they want to help cheer you on! Don’t just live the dream… LIFT. YOUR. DREAMS.

I can get behind that.

The Force Leggings fit like a dream. Soft, stretchy, high waisted, with a zip pocket in back. The inseam on the medium is 20.5″, which for me (I’m 5’7 if I round up) comes to mid-calf. The perfect cropped length for me.

I was crazy about the “Resting Lift Face” tank as soon as I saw it on their website. This muscle tee is soft cotton, not super stretchy, but a relaxed fit with large armholes. I sized up to a Large which fits me perfectly for the style.

I fell in love the strappy design on the back of the Dream On bra, but the fit also won me over! I might even try running in this one, because it feels pretty supportive. I’m a 34D and the medium fit me perfectly.

It’s not the best photo, but the Lightspeed Shorts are fantastic as well! The fit is similar to your typical running shorts, they are lined, and have a thick but soft adjustable waistband. I sized up to a Large and they work really well for me.

Good through the end of the year.

I was provided with free gear from Lifting the Dream, but opinions are my own.

  1. Nice threads! I only lift 2 or 3 times per week and don’t lift too much weight, but I’m pretty sure even that amount helps me to prevent running injuries. Also, “it feels good to feel strong”!
