I always wear underwear (or panties as I prefer to call them) when I workout. ALWAYS. Honestly I had no idea that panties could come in an ATHLETIC style.
When I was contacted by Knix Wear to review a pair of their high-tech athletic underwear, I jumped at the chance. Why did I jump at the chance? Well, because on Friday, February 28th, I was attempting the CrossFit Open 14.1 which included double unders (jump rope.) I was jumping with all the speed and agility that I could muster. And you know what happened? My panties slid ALL THE WAY down, past my butt, past my hips and only stopped because of the crotch seam in my workout pants. OMG! It was horrible. But because this WOD was timed, I was not about to stop to fix my panties. It wasn't until the WOD was over that I had to put my hands down my pants and attempt to find my panties and pull them back up. Ugh. I hated that.
Did you know that 93% of women are unsatisfied with their current workout underwear?
And you can add me to that 93%.
What are some of the issues that women complain about? Panty-lines, leaks, sweat stains, chaffing and odor top the list.
FitKnix promises to fix all of that. But would it pass the Jenny WOD test??
I'm happy to report that IT DID!! I wore them on Friday and despite doing burpees, jumping jacks, deadlifts, and situp, the FitKnix didn't budge! No wedgies, no smell, no sweat stains in the crotch. They were AWESOME!
In addition to being great workout panties, I loved the packaging that they came in!
FitKnix is working HARD to bring their line of athletic underwear to the general public through an indiegogo campaign and they are kicking butt (no pun intended!) You can find out more information about the product and the campaign HERE.
And watch the video to learn so much more!!
It was a fantastic product, and I plan to add more pair to my panty drawer!!
Do you wear any special type of underwear when you workout??
