Senita Athletics Product Review

Our Old Ways

When we were first married we spent money like it was going out of style.  Not on high dollar large items, but on dinners out, name brand clothing and other crap we didn’t need.  We look back at each other now and are disappointed in our old selves for not being mature in our spending habits.

When I left my ten-year career as a high school science teacher to begin building my coaching business, we took a huge leap of faith, sold my husband’s favorite Toyota Tacoma and used that money to see if we could survive without my income.

Good news is..we did.

But not without major sacrifices, lifestyle changes and behavioral changes that we learned from our friend Money Peach.  Thanks to all of these things we invested in ourselves in improving our relationship with money and have learned so much along the way.

I Live in Workout Clothes..don’t judge me (please:)

One big learning curve for me was buying athletic clothes.  I train 5-6 times a week, coach multiple CrossFit classes and work from home as a nutrition coach–so let’s be honest I pretty much live in workout clothes.

I quickly realized expensive brands were no longer in my budget (well…the really never were).  From that point in my life, I am always on the hunt for awesome athletic clothing that looks adorable on, is stylish, sucks everything in really nicely (what mom doesn’t love that part?) and does not break the bank.

When a friend showed me the Senita Athletics website I was totally intrigued.  Senita is a locally owned company based out of Tempe, Arizona started by two moms who wanted more from their lives and left their jobs to become entrepreneurs in December 2015. Do the math–that wasn’t that long ago.  Their story was enough for me to give support; I can relate!  I love their passion to provide quality workout clothes to women at a price that is completely justifiable to the budget and aligns with all the trending styles.

Their Products

Senita has a great range of products including running and fitted shorts, crops and pants, tees, jackets, new joggers and other accessories.  Enter the Denali Legging in “Starry Night” print (retail price $40). When the package arrived I was totally stoked! The fabric was soft, stretchy and held everything in nicely when I slipped them on.

The print was unique and colors popped.  I’ve been wearing the Denali’s for both conditioning and lifting.  In both instances they stay in place, don’t bunch up and major bonus—they are NOT see through!  I am 5’8″ weighing roughly 135 lbs and found a small to fit just right.



Since then, I decided to splurge and treat myself to a pair of their Fierce Capris in plum (retail price $35) and Fierce Pants in black (retail price $38)  along with my favorite print the Sarah Sports Bra in “Bahamas” (retail price $26).   The capris fit well, stay in place and have come out of the washer nicely after any washes.  The sports bra is an adorable print and great for a low impact training day.  It would not provide enough support for me during HIIT or run.

I also love that they have added options to their clothing to hold a cell phone or slip a key into while training outdoors, going for a run, working at home or just running to the store.  This was a major bonus for me!

My Overall Rating:

Senita has proven to be I would suggest sizing down because I found things to be slightly on the larger end of the size spectrum.  I have sized down in everything I’ve ordered and have been content.  Most items tend to be on the less “fitted” size to provide a more conservative look and feel.  My only complaint (and a good one for them to have) is that they sell out quickly.  If you see something you like, snag it fast because their prices are so competitive items don’t last long on the website.

    Thanks for noting that they aren’t see thru! I’m thinking and buying a pair of leggings, and that is always a huge issue for me. Bubble butt problems. My other issue is sweat; does the fabric show wet patches? Is it moisture wicking?

      It is always a good concern for me too! I haven’t tried all versions of the pants yet, but I’ve been pleased with the it washes nicely and isn’t overly bulky. If I am super sweaty–I can’t conceal my! In AZ it is just so hard! My favorite so far are for sure the fierce crops!
