Workout Clothes for Short Women
with the caveat that I haven't done any research at all on this, Land's End is good about short-torso long-torso stuff.
I don't know either but when you find out let me know I am 4'10&3/4
I do understand.
woops- also DEFINITELY try Danskin, they have stuff for a variety of body shapes, including petites (and ridiculously long torsos)
I just checked Lands End and found they have only TWO ITEMS in their "Active Wear" section for petite sizes. BOOOOO!
I will try Danskin next.
yeah, i said L/E cause I know they're good about swimsuits. Danskin I KNOW has a petite line.
LMAO @ Nevins...
You sound like me... I'm 5"0 and 3/4....
I tend to round up to 5"1.
try athleta.com. most of their stuff comes in petite sizes. my favorite shorts from them are the cardio short... longer inseam, i run in them and and they don't ride, no chaffing either. worth every penny! title-9.com may also have petite sizes in some stuff.
I am keeping my eye on this post!! I am 5'3 and my "shorts come down to my knees!! I have capris that go to my ankle too! Being short is definately HARD!!
i am 5'3" and i have capris that go to my ankles, too! looks like i am prepared for a flood! they are even "petite"... too funny! my shorts from athleta have a 6" inseam, and hit me mid-thigh... love them!
I get ahleta's catalogs (for some reason -- I've never ordered from
them) and maybe I should try them, but I have to say, they are
EXPENSIVE!! Since you said they're worth it, though, I'll give them a
zeppocat, make sure you check their sale page on their website! i love the shorts; i bought a couple pair of workout pants, too, that i am really happy with! they are expensive, but are well made, and since i wear them so much, i figure they are worth it... so am i!
I tend to round up to 4' 11".All my kids are tall Thankfully!! They passed me up by 5th grade. Sad thing is (I volunteer at a private school I work with the High School students ) So many Times People thought the students were unattended because they thought I was one of them. You would think the grey would give it away !!

First I'd like to point out that BMI by calculation (height and weight) is not accurate for petite people who are physically fit. IE- mine puts me in the morbidly obese category even though my waist is 26", my hips are only 36", and I run half marathons and triathlons frequently. So- you should go by measurements and how your clothes fit rather than your BMI.
Cardio does not burn a ton of calories (not nearly as much as weights)And you won't gain weight as long as your intake doesn't greatly exceed your calorie usage. Also- be sure you eat enough carbs before your workout and do your weight training before your cardio
