YMX by Yellowman Review plus an Indoor Cardio Workout

As an athlete who, besides running, spends time cycling, hiking, and practicing yoga, I love the idea of fitness wear that can multi-task. Clothing that can go from my run to the yoga studio, and even stop at the store on the way home.

I had the opportunity, through my connection as a Fitfluential Ambassador, to receive and try out an exercise top from YMX by Yellowman. I was sent the Elemental Earth Tri-pocket jersey in purple (my favorite color!). It is designed for cycling, and has three large pockets in the back, ideal for carrying gear and nutrition on a ride.

Since I am training for the Costume Party Run, my recent focus has been on running, not cycling. Plus, the last few days have been so hot that on Saturday I was forced to bring my workout indoors. I thought it would be a perfect time to see if my YMX top would be a great multi tasker. In the video below, I will show you my favorite way to make an indoor cardio workout interesting, plus give you the lowdown on the YMXΒ  jersey.

I also had a chance to take my YMX top out for a run. I’m on the tapering end of my half marathon training, so I ran seven miles on Sunday. I thought that I’d take advantage of those big deep pockets, so I put a gel, my earphones and my phone there. Everything was good except the phone. It bounced a little too much, which bothered me, so I switched it out after about two miles.

It was a very warm day, but the MadKool fabric did its job and kept me comfortable and dry for seven miles. In case you didn’t watch the video, let me tell you about this (practically) miracle fabric.


Madkool technical fabrics are designed to enhance your athletic performance. Madkool actually moves the sweat away from your body into the outer layers of the fabric, where it can dry quickly.

Madkool is silky soft, but tough; stretchy, but the fabric holds its shape and resists abrasion, and designed to receive prints with clarity and permanence. You can wash your YMX tops over and over and they won’t fade.

MadKool will help you stay warm when the weather is cold and help you cool off when your heart is pumping.Β  Some of the fabrics (those designed for outdoor wear like running or cycling) come with UV protection.

From my personal experience, I can tell you that my YMX top felt so light and delicate that it was a joy to wear. It seemed to keep me dry and cooler on my run in 85 degree weather.Β  It actually felt dry to the touch when I finished!

When I first put the top on, it seemed kind of short and I thought that it might ride up, but it did not. It stayed right in place through my whole run. The pattern and colors are beautiful, so pretty in fact that I wore my top home from the gym, made a few stops, and never felt that I was wearing “gym clothes.”

All in all I was really happy with my YMX top. They are a little pricey, but for a top that is beautiful, fits well, does the job, plus lasts through wear after wear, it is worth it.

Have you tried YMX before? What do you look for in your workout wear?

Disclosure: YMX by Yellowman sent me a top to review. I received no other compensation. All opinions are my own.

      I love the thinness of the fabric. It is so light and silky that you hardly realize you’re wearing it!

      I would almost kill for rain! Though if we did have it, it would be the hot sticky kind that just makes it seem more miserable.

      This was the first time I’ve tried YMX and I’m sold! Really, the fabric is so amazing and light that it’s hard to describe. I might actually have to ride my bike now, just so I can use my pretty jersey more.
