Reyna Lay

“Hi! I’m Reyna, and not too long ago while snacking on a slice of pizza in between sets, I jokingly told my husband that I should start a business called Barbells and Pizza because it’s the two things I enjoy the most. We both had a good laugh thinking it was such a silly idea. But, by the end of that workout I had decided I was going to make it a reality. And I’m so glad I did! Barbells and Pizza is what I wake up passionate to work on. I love creating new designs in my head, putting pen to paper and drawing them up, and then seeing them come to life in our products. As a thicc girl, I love creating clothing that all women can wear, whether they’re a size 16, like me, a size 0, or a size 22! I think all women should feel amazing in their workout clothes. I love what I do and with your support I hope that I can keep doing it for many, many more years to come. Thank you all for helping make my dream a reality.

You guys rock!”

Happy Customers

These short as soft, comfortable and most definitely squat proof. I just LOVE the color of this blue and it has to be one of my favorite shorts at the time. And of course I can’t forget about all the pockets!!! I HAVE NO COMPLAINTS WHATSOEVER.

Ruby Gamboa

If you have been contemplating getting these leggings do yourself a favor and order them immediately! These are the absolute most comfortable leggings I’ve ever worn. People talk about Lularoe leggings feeling like butter… these leggings are a million times better than lularoe plus they have the high-supportive waist which is amazing… not to mention pockets! I’m not sure if I want to wear them out, while working out or sleeping. Need these in every color!!

Sarah Wisthoff

Love my tank! Wore it to Muay Thai training in Texas in 90+ degree weather and it kept me cool and totally held up. Its super soft and comfy and fits true to size. Will definitely be ordering more from this site.

Karla Ocampo

Sexy as hell. Love putting on a pair of shorts and still feeling feminine but know that I’ll dominant the barbell. Buttery soft, high waisted and don’t move while squatting!!! Love the print!!!

Erika Giesbrecht

I’m typically not a huge colorful clothes person but i LOVE these shorts. Squat proof, so soft, and usable pockets. Keep it up!! Im slowly becoming a color girl!

Margarita Trevino

Hands down the most comfortable leggings I own. Not only is the material so incredibly soft, but it wicks away moisture really well. They also fit my curvy shape really well. They are cut in a way that works for me and is super comfortable. They are high waisted, but not so high they are uncomfortable on me. I love them so much! I just want to wrap my whole body in this material.

Jenny Hince

Softest leggings I’ve owned and I love how they have pockets, along with being squat proof. Myself being 5’ these leggings aren’t extra long like most leggings.

Ashley May

Love my leopard print shorts. They are so soft, comfy, not see through but the best part is the pockets! Super happy with them! Thanks for making such cute and comfy shorts.
