Actio926: Active Wear That Moves You Review + Giveaway {Ended}


Actio926 Giveaway

 What I love most about blogging isn’t necessarily getting to try out new products all the time (though that is fun), it is discovering and connecting with amazing brands that have inspirational stories and actually care about what they do.  

Through my relationship with Fit Approach, I was recently given such an opportunity to learn about Actio926, an activewear line that was created by a runner in an effort to enhance overall experience and performance all while remaining fashionable.  

Inspired by her late mother’s hand painted watercolor dress designs and the desire to do something more, Stephanie Radkay, the founder and CEO of Actio926,  has worked along side her husband to create this clothing line that is not only fashionable but functional. Stephanie, a lifetime runner and daughter to a head track coach, describes herself as “practically born on the track”.  

Frustrated by the lack of fashionable running clothes that were actually functional, she decided to create her own active wear line because she wanted clothes that would not only look good but would also enhance performance.  With a passion for fashion, she designs each piece, approving every fabric, button and seam until it meets her standards. 

She named her active wear line Actio after the latin word for ACTION and the 926 holds personal meaning to Stephanie and is also a tribute to her mother.  Oh and her seriously cool slogan? “Active Wear That Moves You To Your Core! “,  a reminder to all women to take action, be inspired and follow your heart.

I was given the choice to pick an Actio outfit out and give it the real sweat test.  Upon browsing the website to make my pick, I discovered so many amazing styles that I had a hard time choosing.  Ultimately, I picked the Tab Over Jacket and Rock the Course Leggings and I have to say, they did not disappoint.  

Upon receiving the package in the mail, I opened it to find it beautifully presented with a hand written note.  It really goes to show that this company truly cares and appreciates it’s customers and taking that extra step to show that means a lot.

When I folded back the pink tissue paper I was pleased to find the gorgeous Tab It Over Jacket I had ordered along with the beautifully bright Rock the Course leggings.

 Ooooh so pretty! Which I knew it would be as soon as I saw it on the site but of course, I needed to try it on and put it to the sweat test! 

I unfortunately didn’t have the opportunity to photograph getting active in these pieces outside since it has literally been negative degrees here, but I did do a little mini photo shoot to show you just how awesome they are and I did take the leggings for a 5 mile test run.  SPOILER ALERT: I love them! 

Oh and please don’t mind the poorly lit photos (hence why I am standing by a window)…the first set I took got deleted, thanks for nothing technology!

This is the Tab It Over Jacket and I have to say, it not only does it look cute, it fits perfectly.  The material is super soft, lightweight, very breathable and made of high performance, moisture management material.  All of this makes it perfect for a run.  There are also pockets in the front and a hidden zipper in the back. Oh and it was thumbholes! Heck yeah! 

The color that I got and am wearing is called Jacaranda though it only appears to be available in either Starlight and Midnight Splash Parade now. It sells for $78.00 and is seriously worth every penny!

These are the Rock the Course Leggings.  The color name is Parade and rightfully so, they are bright and cheery with pops of powerful colors.  Aside from being pretty, they are also lightly compressed giving muscles support during your run plus they are made of moisture management material.  

Like I said before, I took them on a 5 mile test run and was more than pleased at how they performed…I even shared a photo post-run on Instagram and was given tons of compliments on them.  One question I was asked was if they are see through at all, which they are not.  The material is just the right thickness without being too heavy or so thin that they are see through.  They sell for $98.00 and again, are worth every pretty little penny!

If you like the pattern but need something with a little less material for warmer weather then check out the Capri-Me 3/4 length.  Just as many pops of color but gives your legs a little more breathing room.  

Other styles that I love include the Own the Draft Mesh TopFave Tank and the Spin-It 3/4 Leggings which are pictured in the giveaway image below.  

There are even some awesome items in the sale section.  Personally I love the Sprint to the Finish Side Zip Pullover and the Run Like the Wind Leggings both of which I actually purchased yesterday because I just had to have them!
