It has been quite awhile since I’ve posted about Stitch Fix or Trunk Club. Having a 3rd baby is mostly to blame for that 🙂 But I just had to make this one happen because I’m so excited about it. Trunk Club now has FITNESS TRUNKS! Workout clothes, shoes, and accessories delivered to your doorstep. It came at a perfect time for me. I’ve been itching to start working out again mostly to feel better physically and mentally and have more energy. Having 3 kids is so exhausting and I just feel run down all the time. Additionally, I have some more baby weight to lose, so that’s more motivation for me to get active again. So a fresh new workout wardrobe was totally in order. Not to mention the need for new running sneakers, since my feet grew during pregnancy and now my old shoes no longer fit 🙁
Before showing you what I got, if you need a refresher on how Trunk Club works, especially in comparison to my other love, Stitch Fix- check out my comparison post here!
One of my favorite aspects of Trunk Club is getting to communicate with my stylist so much. We instant-message each other before and after every trunk to ensure that I’m getting a trunk suited to my desires and needs. Sometimes I like to be surprised and give very little guidance, but other times I am looking for something specific. I mentioned to Alison, my amazing new stylist – who is absolutely KILLING IT with these trunks, that I was looking for sneakers to fit my high-arched feet. Because of my high arches, I have a problem with the bone on the top of my foot getting sore after wearing certain shoes for longer than 10 mins. So I asked if she could find sneakers that would work for me. *Spoiler- she did and they’re amazing! As for everything else, I shared my Pinterest board with her and she did a great job sending items very similar to what I had pinned (even a few of the exact same items).
So without further ado, here’s my first fitness trunk!

I’ll start with the shoes:
Nike Zoom Pegasus 33 Sneaker
I love the colors and design of this sneaker. They offer a lot of support and are very comfortable. Most importantly- they’re not too tight around the top of my foot. I can’t comment yet on how well they perform while actually running, but I suspect (based on other reviews and how they feel on my foot), that they will be amazing. While these are legit running sneakers, great for high-impact workouts, these next pair of sneakers will serve a different purpose for me:
Nike ‘Juvenate’ Print Sneaker
THESE SHOES….hands-down may be the most comfortable pair of shoes my feet have ever had the privilege of wearing. They are like walking on clouds. Lightweight, breathable, flexible. They’re like wearing slippers. Not sure if you can tell from the pictures, but they’re basically slip-ons. I keep them tied and can slip them on and off. Amazing. As opposed to the other sneakers, these are probably better for low-impact workouts and walking. I love the color and print and that they’ll go with just about everything (when it comes to active-wear). Once again, they fit my feet well and are great for my high arches. Well done, Alison!
Now, sports bras (which were way too small, because…breastfeeding)…
Nike ‘Pro Indy’ Dri-FIT Sports Bra
Wasn’t able to try this on but I like the look of it- different than the typical sports-bra with the v-neck shape and spaghetti straps. Love the Dry-Fit fabric (drys quickly to keep you cool and comfortable).
Nike ‘Pro Fierce Accelerator’ Racerback Dri-FIT Sports Bra
Cool print. Again, love the dri-fit fabric stuff. Wish it would’ve fit, but Alison is sending me larger sizes in the next one 🙂
Now on to the clothes…
Zella ‘Racer’ Tank
I am sucking in alllll the belly pooch in this photo, just FYI. The thing with most workout clothes, is that they’re not very forgiving…because they’re so form fitting and tight. But that’s ok. More motivation to lose the baby weight 🙂 I really like this tank. Just about everything I received in this trunk is made with excellent, moisture-wicking, comfortable fabric. This tank is no exception. High quality stuff.
Nike Dri-FIT Long Sleeve Top and Zella ‘Barely Flare Booty’ High Waist Pants
This is an outfit straight off my Pinterest board! The long-sleeved top is great for cooler-weather running. You’ll see that “dry-fit” fabric in many of the items, which is key. You don’t want sweat holding you back 😉 Also, love the thumb-hole cut-out thing.
The pants are great and I especially love the high-waist because it holds in the midsection well. They’re a flattering fit overall- fitted throughout most of the leg with a slight flare at the bottom. Great for every-day lounging (I’m wearing them right now as a matter of fact) and light workouts (I probably wouldn’t go running in them).
Zella Reversible Colorblock Cocoon Cardigan
This cardigan is super soft and warm and definitely had a “cocoon”-like fit, which I didn’t photograph very well, sorry. You can see more pictures of it here. I didn’t end up keeping it though because I don’t really have a need for it and the overall style and fit wasn’t really “me”.
Zella ‘Layer Me’ Pullover
This was my least favorite top. I wasn’t crazy about the fit on me, kind of unflattering and a little big. It was also the “heaviest” of fabrics (great for an added layer of warmth though). It reminded me of a ballet leotard for some reason…maybe the wide scoop neck. Loved the thumb-hole cut-out though (a common element of the long-sleeved tops).
Zella ‘Arabesque’ Twist Tee and Zella ‘Fly By’ Print Running Midi Tights
I was on-the-fence with this top. I love how lightweight and free-flowing it is. I’m even a fan of the open back thing. But it fell off the shoulders WAY too easily, and that would’ve drove me crazy so I didn’t end up keeping it. I do love the concept of it though. You can apparently wear it the other way too…with the opening in the front, but…no thanks.
The tights I LOVE. Fun, printed running tights are all the rage right now. And I’m totally on board. Super comfy and keep the legs warm. These also have reflector dots on them to increase visibility while you’re out running and a hidden zip-pocket in the back waistband.
Zella ‘Twisty Turn’ Tee and Zella ‘Speedster’ Running Shorts
This is another top that I *almost* loved and kept. The only thing I didn’t like about it was the random seam than runs diagonally across the front, right over the boob. Why? Anyway, the “twisty turn” thing in the front is really cute and fabric was nice and lightweight, a great layering piece.
The shorts are awesome! Fun print, nice thick waistband, hidden pockets everywhere (even a pocket within a pocket) and easy to move (run) in. A great classic running short. Keeper for sure!
Nike ‘Element’ Dri-FIT Half Zip Performance Top and Nike’Power Epic Lux’ Crop Dri-FIT Running Leggings
This is probably my favorite outfit out of everything in the trunk! Love the heathered-grey top. Super soft material, lightweight but still adds some extra core warmth. Has a reflective trim to increase visibility and of course, the thumb-hole thing.
The leggings, I am obsessed with. The color and print was enough to make me like them, but the dry-fit fabric also feels really nice on the legs. Love the behind-the-knee mesh part too. Winner!
Zella Convertible Shoulder Tote
This is a cute sporty little gym bag! Tons of pockets for all your stuff, plenty of room for clothes, a towel or yoga mat, etc. It has over-the-shoulder straps, hidden backpack straps and an optional cross-body strap for some different carrying options. I don’t need a gym bag because I don’t go to a gym. My house is my gym 🙂 BUT if I did go to one, this would be a great bag for it.
Zella ‘Double the Fun’ Headband
I would’ve tried this on for the photos but since I didn’t keep it I couldn’t cut the tag off…and wearing this on my head with the tag on just looked silly. Anyway…it’s pretty self-explanatory. It’s a headband to keep those fly-aways at bay while working out. However, I found it didn’t stay put very well on my hair, despite the rubbery dots 🙁 A problem I have with most headbands sadly.
So, what did you think? I was impressed and look forward to getting another one. The notes I gave Alison for my “follow-up” trunk: larger sports bras, more tanks/tops that have a looser-fit (to hide the postpartum spare-tire), and another fun pair of leggings and shorts!
