Fall Into Fitness Giveaway #FallforC9atTarget

c9 Champion leggings

It’s Fall, y’all, and that means time to pull out the warm weather clothes that leave you feeling comfortable and cozy, and maybe even energized to workout before you pack on a couple holiday pounds.

And when you work out, you want to look cute doing it, or at least I do, just in case the exercising part doesn’t happen and you end up in those yoga pants or running tights all day, paired with your favorite sweatshirt.

A new set of workout attire does inspire me to at least try getting on the treadmill a little more often, especially when it looks and feels as good as the C9 Champion brand that was sent to me recently to review.

First of all, the pants are probably my favorite leggings I own now. They mold to your body, without showing all the little bumps back there that you don’t need others to notice. The pair I got has an iridescent ribbon up the legs that reminds me of a celtic design. They’re actually pretty. They feel great. And, the special fabric makes your unfit legs look like you’ve been working out for years. Yeah. Winning already, right??!!

I wasn’t as crazy about the sweatshirt, or fleece jacket as they call it. It’s nice, but a little more lightweight than I’d like for colder weather. The zip-up front, pockets and hoodie make it popular with my daughters, though. I do admit I like the thumbhole feature, since typically the kiddos end up cutting them into their other sweatshirts anyway. I’ll let them adopt the hoodie and think I’m going to go back and get myself the half-zip option for myself.



I’ll be wearing my leggings as I work on a self-imposed challenge to build up my flexibility again. My daughter is the queen of splits and cheer moves that make her look like a contortionist. As I age, I’ve lost those skills I had at her size, and I’m working on getting them back, and these tights are perfect for sliding down further into split position each week.

This isn’t our first time using these running tights. I bought the fleece-lined version for the guys in my family last year before our ski trip to Colorado. To me, they’re ten times better than long underwear, and much warmer, too. You can’t see them in this photo, but trust me, they’re the layer closest to the kids’ skin, making it possible to play in the freezing weather all day long.

If you think you’d like to give them a try, leave me a comment below and tell me what big goal you have in getting in shape again. I’ll be giving away a $50 Target gift card that you can use toward buying yourself your own set, or maybe the C9 Champion sports bra. Enter by midnight Tuesday, November 14th, and I’ll pick a winner at random on November 15th. Also, go follow me on Instagram as part of your entry. I’ll try to keep you posted there on my split progress in the coming weeks!

(Note to readers: As I mentioned, I was given a set of these clothes for the sake of a review. I was not otherwise compensated and my opinion remains my own.)

    I’ll be starting my long and slow road back to fitness after this broken bone heals and my knee is back to normal! Not looking forward to starting over. But I have worn C9 gear for years and it has held up great!

  • Kellie

    After having my third baby 8 months ago, I am ready to get all this baby weight off and get back in shape. My goal is to start exercising and eating healthy.

  • Jessica Strey

    I used to manage running stores before I got married 11+yrs ago… & have the wardrobe to prove it. However, that’s how old my workout clothes are (at least), w/exception of bras & shoes. Let’s add-on the fact I’ve got my mommy-bod going & not my distance-runners bod … you see my point. I would love to treat myself to some affordable new threads.

  • Nanette @ A Mom Blog

    I already follow you on IG, I’d be silly not to. :) As far as fitness goes, I’m walking again and getting into yoga for the first time ever and I need some clothing I can move in and that will move with me.

  • Michelle H

    Okay I’ll bite! As you know I just finished my bilateral mastectomy four weeks ago and I am starting reconstruction process. My fitness goal is to lose all this weight (70lbs) so that my body matches my new additions. Lol. Would live to get some new workout bras for me new boobs… or lack there of.

  • Amanda T

    On July 5th, I started the KETO diet. I’ve lost 40 lbs so far and all of my old workout clothes are becoming more and more baggy. I still have a ways to go but I have never felt better!
