Hi I’m Sam. I made this website in 2011 and it’s still here! I'm the author of the humorous self-help book AVERAGE IS THE NEW AWESOME. I like pizza, French fries, barre, spin, more pizza, more French fries, and buying clothes. Follow me on twitter & Instagram at @samanthamatt1... and on this site's meme account on IG at @averagepeopleproblems. OKAY GREAT THANKS BYE.


  1. I could really do with some new workout things as I am incredibly unfit but preparing to start training for a “24 hour triathlon” all in aid of Mental Health. I figure if I was “sweating pretty” it would be an extra incentive to train!

  2. I would love to win this! I have been working out more recently and definitely need more workout clothes but don’t really have the cash to spend! I shared this article on Twitter too 🙂

  3. I just got the go to start running again after i fractured my pelvis, I CANT WAIT!!!! These would be great to start me back to my love of running 🙂

  4. I would love to win because right now my workout clothes consist of a pair of sweatpants, an old tee, and some really old worn out sneakers. Not attractive at all.

  5. I would love to win because I’m starting to train for my first 10k, 15k and eventually half marathon. Nothing would get me motivated to run, run run through April 2013 like some cute new gear!

  6. I would like to win because I work out on a daily basis, sometimes more than once a day. This means doing laundry about twice a week to make sure I have clean workout clothes. Clearly I need a few more cute outfits to wear to the gym. Also, who doesn’t love looking fabulous while working out to make you feel fabulous?!

  7. I would love to win because NEW workout clothes means MOTIVATION! Thanks for the giveaway!
    I follow you @jessebfit and retweeted your giveaway post 🙂

  8. New post grad here. I’m living with my parents to save money to move abroad, and no longer can use the Uni’s gym OR afford a $30 a month gym membership. I started a running regiment- so the least I can do is sweat pretty for free!!

  9. I am preparing for my first figure competition this spring and could really use some cute workout clothes that will fit me! I would LOVE new Puma Gear to keep me looking fabulous and train hard! Thanks for the giveaway Samantha!

  10. This would be so amazing to win a new workout outfit from Puma!!! My old running shoes are shot and I could really use new shoes and Puma has really cute gear! Thanks Samantha and Puma for the giveaway to Sweat Pretty!

  11. Right now I’m trying to lose the baby weight from #2 and what was left from baby #1. Some cute workout clothes would help me feel great about myself 🙂

    I should win b/c I have no workout clothes to wear as I want to start working out. I have wore my pjs but that just doesn’t work well!

  13. I have been working out so much since getting laid off that my workout clothes are now baggy and unflattering…getting new clothes would motivate me even more!

    I deserve to win because I’m trying to win this for my fiancee. She just started working out at a gym and shes been saying she needs to buy some new clothes and sneakers to work out. So if I could surprise her with this, it would be amazing!

    I should win because I recently lost over 100 pounds but since being a full time student plus working 40 hrs a week I’ve started to get away from exercising and watching what I eat. I feel that having the right outfit of puma gear will be my first step in getting myself back.

    I would love to win for my daughter in law who is trying to lose her baby weight. I know a new outfit and shoes would make her feel so good. 🙂 I would love to win it for her!

  19. I’d like to win because ever since having baby #2 I haven’t gotten back into the groove of working out, and one of the reasons is because I don’t have anything really comfortable to wear for it! This would be a huge motivator for me that I need!

    I would love to win because I am just getting into running, but don’t have anything cute to wear. I think having some new workout clothes would make me feel better about working out. Thanks for the chance to win!

  23. Nothing makes me feel better about working out, than having good looking threads! I think sweating pretty would give me more motivation to work out even harder than I already do.

  24. Well, my “baby” is almost 1.5 and while I’ve lost the extra weight, I haven’t made ANY effort to get back in shape. Cute workout clothes are a great motivator!

  25. I would love to win, I just ran my first 5k for breast cancer ‘run for the cure’ and now I am hooked on running. my present runners are old and do not have the support I need. this would be an awesome win, nothing wrong with looking good in quality clothes when working out!

  26. I would love to win …I need to get back into shape…and I need some Puma to help me 🙂 thanks

  27. I should win because I dont have any fashion and i know puma will make me look good!!

  28. Our landlord threw out all our stuff in summer storage due to a miscommunication, and I’m training for my first marathon (for a cancer research institute, in memory of my dad), so I could use the running shoes and jacket for long winter runs!

  29. I would love to win this! My kids and I just moved to Illinois from living in Georgia and I have no cold weather gear to workout in!! 🙁 this would be absolutely perfect 🙂

  30. I think I should win because this twenty-something just zipped up size 4 pants for the first time in her life 🙂

  31. I love to run 5K, 10K, and half marathons. I am running a turkey trot this month and I think I would love to sport me some Puma gear while running. I also love to Zumba.

  32. I would love to win some workout clothes from #sweatpretty because I’ve recently given up all drugs and alcohol (it was 90 days last Friday!) and I’m spending A LOT of time working out! Refocusing my energy to staying in shape 🙂 but it makes for a lot of laundry as well lol. Need more workout clothes. Thank u for considering me 🙂

  33. I was just saying in my blog post last week that I am looking for some cute workout clothes to inspire me to exercise. I hate wearing frumpy old tshirts and sweatpants to workout in. Those clothes just make me want to sit on the couch…. =)

    I would love to win this giveaway.

  34. I should win because my serious tabata workouts mean I need serious workout clothes.

  35. I should win because the only reason I don’t run at the moment is that I don’t have running shoes. I live in a big city where every path is made of concrete. I need a pair good sole!
