Initially created in the UK in 2014 – where they have a huge flagship store – Whatever It Takes (WIT) is now conquering Asia, as they just landed in Hong Kong on the initiative of a seasoned fitness entrepreneur (and fitness junkie!). The concept? The best of training apparel, footwear, and accessories.
Training has now become a sport by itself. Whatever It Takes has no other ambition than offering the best and exclusive ranges from major and emerging training brands worldwide. Created and managed by athletes themselves, they know exactly what you’ll value when it comes to choosing new gear.
The list of brands they offer is pretty impressive and attractive as we didn’t really have access to most of them before in Hong Kong (or with long / expensive / complicated shipment). For her or for him, get ready for some serious shopping temptation!
BUT I won’t leave you like that… I have a discount code for you of course: get 10% off on any order of HK$500 and above on their website, using the code UNICORNFITNESS, for the rest of 2016!
So, talking first to all my jazzy leggings sisters… I hear you girls and WIT too! LIQUIDO ACTIVE and DHARMA BUMS beauties are waiting for you to grab them all.
But who said jazzy was only for leggings? I certainly didn’t, nor VULL SPORTS and their amazing sports bras collection.
If you feel like getting some cool, comfortable and well-cut tops, t-shirts or shorts, they got you covered with a wide range by NOBULL, STRIKE MOVEMENT and HYLETE.
In the footwear department, NOBULL and STRIKE MOVEMENT rule. Stable, comfortable, light and fancy. And if all that is still not enough to convince you, wait a bit and you’ll find the NIKE ROMALEOS 2 there by October.
If your feet need to express themselves even more, STANCE has the craziest socks to make them happy.
Oh, you want a bag or a hat? Easy. Get NOBULLed again!
Had my eye on UNBROKEN DESIGNS for a while, now is the time to lay our hands on their knee sleeves and shine bright as we lift!
For those who have enough of those ripped hands, pay a visit to the grips section to get yourself some JAW stuff… and tell your boyfriend/girlfriend, they’re welcome, I’m happy to help.
Thinking as well to your post workout famished muscles, WIT is the exclusive distributor in Hong Kong of BARE BLENDS, all natural organic whey protein isolate. No more (nasty) surprises, there’s nothing artificial in there.
Putting WIT products to the test…
First of all, the website offers a very qualitative shopping experience. Classifications are clear and it’s very easy to navigate. Warning: it’s so nice and easy that it could be dangerous for your wallet!
The shipping can’t be easier. Got my order in a heartbeat (the day after) and for free as shipped to Hong Kong (details for other Asian countries here).
In my parcel: LIQUIDO ACTIVE, VULL SPORTS, NOBULL and BARE BLENDS.
LIQUIDO ACTIVE is my #1 favorite leggings brand for many reasons. The fabric, buttery soft, is amazingly comfortable and breathable: perfect to break a sweat indoors/outdoors or even exercise on the beach or go surfing! Their waistband is just perfect at it ensures you to move with confidence (hello squats!) and guarantees a perfect figure too (bye bye muffin top!).
My VULL SPORTS instantaneously stole the title of “favorite bra of my collection”… and believe me, if you saw my collection, you’d know it’s a BIG deal! Is it possible for one sports bra to be trustworthy, comfortable, beautiful, original and sexy? Yes, it is. I’m actually seriously considering not wearing any top with it from now on.
From NOBULL, I got a pair of “camo trainers“. I took them to the gym for some weight lifting, to the park for some outdoor HIIT workout, on holidays, and even to the office with a black dress. They’ve successfully passed all the tests. Stable to lift, comfortable to run, solid (and waterproof) to mess around, pretty to be casually worn. The fact that they’re so light is a great bonus when you have to carry them all day in your gym bag or when traveling.
I tried my BARE BLENDS vanilla WPI by itself with water or in multi-ingredients shakes. Forget the awkward smell opening your usual protein powder tub. This vanilla WPI smells like… vanilla! Real, natural vanilla. You can even see real vanilla pods have been mixed in it. The taste is really good too, although the powder doesn’t mix very easily in water so it was better – with or without other ingredients – when mixed in the blender than just hand shaken.
