Workout Gear Delivered – pv.Body

Morning friends!

Thanks for your feedback and thoughts on my last post. Based on your comments, I think I’ll try to post my eats at least once a week and see how it goes. If you all like it and think that it’s beneficial, I’ll keep it up. It’s all about what you all want and I’m totally serious about that.

So today I want to talk about one of my favorite things to keep me motivated to work out every day – cute workout gear!

Basically, there’s a new fitness apparel company out there called pv. body that sends members top quality, workout clothes every month. I met the owner of the company at FitBloggin’ this year and she kindly offered me the opportunity to try out their service. Print magazine subscription may be on the decline, but other types of subscription based services seem to be popping up all over the place – snacks, beer, wine, coffee, activities for kids, kids clothes, books… you name it, it’s probably out there! So far I’m a big fan of the ones I’ve tried, including pv. body and Birchbox. I love receiving mail and each time a new box arrives, I get super excited – it’s always a fun little treat to see what I got.

pv. body keeps things simple. Basically, you take a quick quiz (answering questions about your favorite types of workouts, your size, style, color palettes you like, etc.) and a personal pv. body style profile is created for you. The pv. body team puts together a personalized outfit for you each month and ships it to you.

I’ve received two boxes so far – one in November and one in December and everything I’ve received has high quality, brand-name gear that I like.

The first top and bottom were from the same brand, Nux – a bright pink cami and solid gray capris. They fit me well and are good quality, both of which are key things I look for in workout gear. I’ve worn both items several times and have found them to be super functional for working out and/or running errands. I actually even wore the cami as an undershirt to a party.

The best part = if I purchased both items from Nux, these items would have cost me over $100, but through pv. body, it’s about half that price. I’m never one to turn down a good deal so this makes me very happy.

The gear is fitted but super flattering. Love that!

Luckily, I took these photos before my injury so I didn’t have to wear my cute knee brace for the photos. ;)

But don’t worry, I’ve got your cuteness factor covered with the little stinker that snuck into this one.

My December box had royal blue American Apparel bottoms and a coral Colosseum top. Again, both items were high quality and fit me well. Before I received my December box, I changed my style profile from dark solids to bright solids for bottoms, hence the reason I got these awesome blue leggings. I think they’re super fun! I also love the detailed pattern on the coral top.

Sorry this picture isn’t so great. It was early in the morning (still dark outside).

Thus far, I’ve been loving my pv. body membership. Now that work at home, I wear workout gear a lot and this subscription is a fun way to give myself options without having to spend a ton of money.

A couple other notes about pv. body:

Does new workout gear motivated you to work out? I know I’ve talked about it here before it motivates me a ton. Sometimes I even use it as a treat when I meet a specific workout goal. Once I finally am able to do a pull-up, I’m going to buy myself a full outfit from Lululemon. :)

Full disclosure: I was offered free product for this review and the link provided is an affiliate link. My opinions are my own and as always, I only accept product reviews for items I would actually spend my own money on.

  1. Love PV.Body – I’m practically living in the leggings they sent me!

  2. Wow! This is great! :) I wish we could have something like this in Europe! :) Hugs

  3. I did a video review of the items I received a few weeks ago – love them!

  4. I just signed up for PV.body! I can’t wait to get my first box of workout gear!!

  5. I’m about to get my first box from them, I’m excited to see what they send!

  6. Wow, those are super cute workout clothes! I’ll haves to check them out :)

    I’m hosting a 12 days of giveaways starting today, come check it out!

  7. That sounds like a great company! Good find! Do their sizes seem to be consistent with typical workout gear? I have this slight fear of ordering online and nothing fitting once I get it, and have to send it back.
    Just curious, cute clothes though; it helps me stay motivated as well :)

  8. Hi Brittany, thanks for the review I have subscribed then have cancelled, they send no tracking numbers, you have to contact them and maybe you’ll get a response back within the week! I have noticed bloggers who get their items for free and promote their site get better service than the paying customers. They also seem to give the higher end items to bloggers as well. Yes the price may be good but the hassle and bad customer service isn’t worth it for me.

    • Oh man Anna – I haven’t heard anything like that about pv. body. :/ I’m bummed you feel as though you didn’t get the service you expected. I know they are just starting out as a company so maybe they have some glitches to work out. I will pass along this feedback.

      Hey Anna,

      Thank you so much for your feedback on pv.body! I’m so sorry you had a bad experience. If you ordered in November, we did get super behind! Being a brand new company, we had no idea we’d receive so many orders. However, we’ve brought on 11 new members to the pv.body team to handle customer service, packing and shipping so orders are going out within hours of being purchased and emails are being promptly responded to. Also, I work directly with our brand ambassadors (often bloggers) and I can promise you we ship our ambassadors the exact same clothing we mail to our members. :) We’d love to have you back so let me know if there’s anything I can personally do for ya. (email: hope@puravit.com)

      Thanks, Anna, and happy holidays!

  9. Hi Brittany!

    Love the review! I tried the link that offered the discount and it doesn’t seem to offer the promotion. Is it still eligible?

    • Hope at pv.body says:

      Hey Jill,

      Wanted to chime in here and let you know that the link is still active. :) You should see a landing page when you click on the link that activates the 20% discount automatically. Just take the style quiz and your discount will be applied at the cart.

      Thanks, Jill, and happy holidays!

      Warmly,
      Hope at pv.body

  10. Thanks for the review! I have been a member for 2 months and I’ve just had 1 issue…. I received the same exact pair of pants each time and have not heard back from them about it. I have found them hard to get in touch with them in general. Just something for people to be aware of :). It seems like they are a small company and perhaps they grew faster than expected but it is still a little disappointing!

    • Hope | pv.body says:

      Hey Georgia,

      I’m so sorry for the mix up! I’m happy to make this fix for you asap. Mind emailing me directly at hope@puravit.com to exchange a bit more info?

      Thanks! Happy New Year!

      Hope from the pv.body team

  11. I was a member for almost 3 months, but I’m not anymore. I received the same pair of awful Nux leggings twice. I didn’t like them at all. They were hard to get on and then they looked like they were just thick tights, not activewear leggings. It was the biggest hassle trying to reach someone to take care of a simple refund request, even though the website made it look like it was so easy. There are dozens of Facebook posts on their page about similar issues other customers are having. Also, just recently reading about the company being really sneaky and getting rid of known brands to push out their own?? Made me decide to cancel my subscription with them. Somethings doesn’t seem right to me.

    • Laura,

      Thank you with your feedback. I apologize if you signed up through my link and weren’t satisfied. Like you, I’ve read about the sneakiness of the company and I have ended my relationship with the brand. I feel awful about promoting a company that would do this. :/

  12. Fantastic web site. Lots of useful information here. I am sending it to several buddies ans also
    sharing in delicious. And naturally, thank you for your effort!
