Whether you wear a pump, CGM or just want your phone close by for emergencies, it is nice to find athletic wear that meets your needs. Senita Athletics makes durable, affordable and functional apparel that will allow you to keep your tech on you during even your most active times. Senita Athletics is designed to make you feel safe and not let diabetes get in the way of whatever it is you are doing.
Who Are They?
Maddie and Jenna have been close friends for many years. Teammates both in high school and Division I University, they were both no stranger to the many different brands and types of athletic wear available. After they both had children and vowed to get back into shape, they couldn’t wrap their heads around the prices of some of these clothing. They sought out to find manufacturers who could create high-quality fabrics at affordable prices. And in 2015, the Senita Athletics brand was born, offering products at a fraction of the price of its competitors.

What Do They Offer?
Senita Athletics offers a variety of different products for all types of activities and lifestyles. They carry an assortment of sports bras, tanks and long sleeve/sweatshirt options. They carry different lines as well, so there is a nice selection of pants with differing types of fit and fabric to choose from. Many of their products are designed to hold phones or other devices, which are perfect for people with type one diabetes.
How Much Does It Cost?
Senita Athletics is able to offer its customers affordable pricing by cutting out the middle man, the retail stores. Their products cost significantly less than the big brand names. You can see a good snapshot of their prices on their collections page.
I am an avid CrossFitter and go five times a week religiously. My workout clothes are put through the test between the vigorous workouts and constant washing so I am always looking for quality products that will last.
I was pleasantly surprised just upon touching the pants that I could tell they had enough spandex to hold me in and wouldn’t be too thin where I would be self-conscious about them being see-through. The best part is the pants come with pockets. They are placed on the outer thigh and through all the burpees, power cleans and back rows, they never once got in the way.
I also got a crop top that says “Fierce”; I just love this top and the message and it will definitely get me in the right mindset for a good sweat session!
Other products to try are the sports bras. These bras have a pocket straight down the back so it is out of sight and out of the way! I highly recommend these and plan on purchasing one before my Spartan Race this spring!
With a family connection to type 1 diabetes, Senita Athletics has kept our needs in mind when inspiring many of their designs. They have a special “Sweet Blue” line that has tops, bottoms and a very inspirational tank to help lift us up. Their Sweet Blue leggings have dots on it, which represent each time a person has to test their blood glucose. I am happy we have Senita Athletics apparel and more importantly, their support!
