Get Down to Business And Work Off Your Buns With These Amazing Geeky Exercise Shirts

[View All on One Page]

When I got up today I put on my exercise clothes, because if I don’t do that early on I know I’ll just stay on the sofa after work eating Ruffles and wasting my time on Tumblr. You know how it goes. And then these awesome geeky workout shirts by Etsy seller Activate Apparel popped up. It’s a sign. A sign that I need all the geeky workout shirts.

Because, honestly, would you rather have boring workout shirts or shirts with references to Mulan, The Lord of the Rings, Legally BlondePokémon, The Hunger Games, and more on them? Yeah. That’s what I thought.

    The writing on the Doctor Who one is the Star Trek TOS font, right? Not sure how I feel about that.

    However, I really want a “Training to Become a Companion” shirt for when I’m running.

    The Mulan one made me laugh out loud, legitimately.

    Damn, these are really cute. Sadly, even though I am exercising a lot now I’m still to huge for these shirts.

    One simply doesn’t power walk into Mordor…

    I have never wanted anything as much as I want that Legally Blonde shirt

  • Laura Truxillo

    Heh. I wear my SHIELD and Aperture Science shirts to the gym (when…er…when I go, that is). these are nifty.

    Needs a Dresden Files one, though.

    I was all excited about my workout today because I got a new sports bra. Now I feel cheated, like I’m having oatmeal while the rest of the world gets Cookie Crisp.

    The Pokemon shirt is perfect!

    Oh man, I knew there was something terribly, terribly off about it but couldn’t pinpoint what. Thank you! It reminds me of those memes that were going around a while ago where you’d have a picture of like, Patrick Stewart, with a Gandalf quote, attributed to Dumbledore. Some men just want to watch the world burn.

    Dammit, now I wish I went to a gym instead of working out at home in my pjs.

    Working OFF her lumps?

    I think i will have to invest in both versions (Disney and X-men) of the Beast mode tank at some point. Suite me quite well while at lads Roller Derby practice me thinks. ^_^

    I wonder if it was their intention to put mountains right where your boobs are. I mean, I know I’ll look better if I work out, but I’m pretty sure my bees will never be mountains.

    Too pricey for something I’m just going to sweat in, going to DIY some geeky racer back tanks instead.

    my Aunty Arianna just got Mercedes CL-Class CL63 AMG by working part time off of a laptop… my site

    These shirts are unisex, right? I’m gonna buy a bunch of them and no one can tell me otherwise.

    I love it!

    I think it should have said WORKING MY LUMPS OFF!

    I’d like these a lot more if they came in a more realistic range of sizes. :-P I suspect their biggest size (L) wouldn’t even go over one boob for me. Also, I turn into a pirate when people won’t sell me something I want. Arr, me mateys, to the DIY stations with ye all!

    Definitely want LSP and Legally Blonde.

    Nobody walked back from Mordor. And why are there two volcanoes?

  • Magic Xylophone

    The Nice King probably told her to.
