"I prefer to wear lululemon clothing during my races because all of their gear is fashionable and highly functional. Not only do their bras and shorts come in great colors and patterns, they are all very lightweight, sweat-wicking and never chafe during long sweaty races. I've been wearing Mizunos since my volleyball days. When I transitioned to long distance running I was pleasantly surprised to find out that their shoes still worked for me. They’re lightweight and supportive, which is important for a flat footed girl like me who runs 50-plus miles a week." – Jenny Young

"When I’m competing or training, I never fail to wear lululemon gear because it’s extremely comfortable and flattering. I love bright colors, so the black spandex with hot pink sports bra is my go-to for almost every CrossFit competition. The Liberty Shorts are my favorite because they don’t ride up during intense workouts and the material helps wick away sweat. As for my shoes, I wear Reebok Nanos because they are extremely comfortable and very light. It’s the perfect shoe for all movements required for CrossFit such as running, jumping and lifting. I also carry my Nike Romaleos (not pictured here) for heavier olympic lifting movements. These shoes add an inch of support in the heel that put me in a better position for successful lifts." – Amanda Martin, Central Athlete

"I wear Pearl Izumi because it’s our shop kit for this season.Normally I would race in one piece skin suit, but our shop suits are not ready yet. I like the eye coverage and lens quality of the Oakley’s. They also fit well in the Giro helmet when I do not want to wear them. The Giro has a rock lock system that tightens the helmet for a really good fit. You can adjust it enough so you practically don’t need the straps. The Swiftwick socks are the best fitting as they stay tight on the boon of the foot as well as on the lower shin." – LJ Miller, Bicycle World
