Under Armour – My perfect winter hoodie and leggings

Anyone who knows me, knows, that I love to exercise. It’s a great way to keep in shape and it is also good for my mental health.

It’s mad to think that I used to work out 6 days a week before I had my little ones. Nowadays, I have to fit exercise in when I can, being a busy mum and having my anxiety to deal with, I do find it hard to go to the gym.

So, instead of the gym, I cycle EVERYWHERE and do free weights at home. It’s a great way to fit exercise in when you have motherly duties to tend to. School runs, cooking and cleaning, you will usually see me in my gym gear. Why? Because its comfortable, stretchy (awesome when you have to pick up Lego) and it is fashionable!

Fitness clothing (gym gear to me) is hard-wearing, perfect if you are a busy mum. It can also keep you warm or cool you down, dependant on the weather.

My latest gym wear additions are from JDWilliams the items I ordered were delivered within 3 days, they arrived just in time for a planned bike ride with my husband.

I ordered an Under Armour threadborne fleece block hoodie

The Under Armour hoodie is a fuller cut for complete comfort. It’s a soft, mid-weight cotton-blend fleece with brushed interior which gives extra warmth while removing sweat from my body to help keep me dry.


This hoodie features a large hood with drawcord, pockets, ribbed cuffs and hem. The hoodie is really comfortable, warm and washes well. I’ve washed it a few times already in the washing machine and the colour is still as great as the day I received it. I love the Under Armour branding on this hoodie!

I also ordered the Under Armour favourite engineered legging.


The Under Armour leggings feature an inner embroidered waistband. Further to this, they feature a forest green and white stripe detail to the thigh, which matches perfectly to my Under Armour hoodie. Again this item is very comfortable, they keep my legs warm on my bike rides and are very good for slimming the appearance of my legs. Unlike other leggings I have had with a stripe detail, they wash well and the stripe detail has not worn away.


This set is perfect for the cold days we’ve been having recently. They get a thumbs up from Welsh Mummy Blogs.
