My Thoughts as an Ex-Rep. Are you curious about Zyia Activewear clothing? Here’s a Zyia review that includes my personal experience as a former representative.
Hello friends! We will be adding more fitness/healthy lifestyle posts to the regular rotation. So we are taking a little break from our regular recipes to bring to you this Zyia review.
I joined Zyia in January to earn more money for my family. However, I realized it wasn’t the right fit for me so I quit a few months back.
This post is intended to provide my readers with an honest look at my recent venture into direct sales, and my thoughts about Zyia Active.
A lot of Zyia reviews online don’t really reflect the reality. They are more like sales pitches. So, I decided to write a review based on my own experience and that of others.
Zyia Active is no longer financially associated with me. This review was not written or sponsored by any current rep. This post includes affiliate links to other clothing brands.
Why I joined Zyia Activewear originally?
Since I have always been skeptical about MLMs and direct selling companies, Zyia was the second one I joined. Zyia clothing was the first thing I saw. I loved it and wanted to make more money.
Since I quit personal training, this blog is my current job. I am always on the lookout for solid income streams to supplement my family’s support.
This brings us back
From what I could see, the clothing was adorable and of good quality. Before I joined, I purchased a muscle tank (the one shown in the photo below), and tried out other items offered by a friend. Although the items I tried on were of good quality, they fit well. My muscle tank was too small for my hips so I had to exchange it.
They also release new clothing every Wednesday so that there is always something to promote and share.
Although I didn’t realize it at the time, I was surprised to find that there were many reps in my region. My town was already nearly saturated by the time that I joined.
Why Zyia activewear has been discontinued?
1) I was not confident in quality consistency
Zyia had some great pieces of clothing, but there were other items that I was not sure about. One of my biggest complaints was the see-through leggings. This worried me as I wanted to be confident about the quality of the clothing that I was selling and promoting.
Before I joined Zyia, I spoke to an ex-Zyia Activewear representative who had informed me about quality issues with the clothing. I was aware of these issues going in as a representative, but I hoped they would have resolved the issue by the time that I joined.
Zyia’s high-quality clothing was difficult to tell my customers. However, I couldn’t hide from my customers the fact that their leggings might be see-through.
Not all leggings were made this way. The leggings in black light were tight but not see-through. My big question with every new release of leggings was “are they squat-proof?” Before promoting new leggings, I would wait to hear feedback from customers or reps who had purchased them.
Different batches of the same style or color leggings might be visible. Some would not be. This means that they may have been made from different quality batches. To ensure that the leggings are all of the same quality, regardless of batch, I believe that quality control should be improved in this area.
Despite this, I think that Zyia products are of high quality. Zyia’s black Unwind Joggers are my current favorite pair of joggers. They fit well and are well made.
2) Irregular sizing
Concerning another thing was the fact that not all clothing was in regular sizes. Some legging styles were too big, others were too small and some were too loose.
I found that the majority of the tanks and shirts were too narrow for my hips, so I had my size changed. They were also too small on my bust.
This was especially true for muscle tanks. The arm holes were too large and awkwardly placed. I had to get a larger size that fitted my hips.
This was disappointing considering I don’t have large hips or a big butt. Other brands, such as prAna or Under Armour, fit me better.
3) High prices
Zyia’s unpredictable quality made me feel that Zyia’s price was too high. Especially considering that not all their leggings can Zyia Activewear be used for squat and that some of the sizes could be off.
While some of the clothing brands I have promoted are more expensive, they are still high-quality and offer many “perks”. GoLite, for example, is made of recycled plastic bottles. PrAna uses fairtrade and organic cotton, and has regular sales. Under Armour, on the other hand, has regular sales and competitive prices. It also supports military personnel and first responders.
I am a conscious shopper and always look for great deals. It was initially difficult for me to accept the Zyia clothing’s high prices. However, I received a discount, so it was okay for me at first. However, clothing can be expensive and I cannot write them off as business expenses. This cuts into my profits.
Activewear brands such as Adidas, Reebok and Under Armour have many products, including a variety of activewear brands, like Adidas, Reebok, Adidas and Reebok. Zyia does not often have sales on its clothing. Although they do offer clearance/markdown items, reps don’t receive full commission and the sizes/colors of these items are very limited.
4) I made very few profits
Zyia seems to care about their reps and offer nice bonuses often, but even with the bonus and the amount that I spent on party incentives gift cards and the cost for the starter kit, it wasn’t financially sensible for me to continue being a Zyia rep.
It’s not easy to make more money in MLMs if you don’t sign up reps. It’s all about recruiting. If you don’t believe in the product and don’t feel comfortable selling it, this can make it very difficult.
Vice showed me this documentary about a popular MLM. It was very eye-opening. Although reps don’t have to purchase clothing or maintain an inventory of Zyia clothes in order to sell them, they are required to use the product themselves to succeed in an MLM. Even with the hostess credit and rep discount, it can be expensive for reps to purchase clothing.
Given my locality was saturated, I wasn’t a salesperson (I didn’t want to cold message anyone). I was investing more time in my blog, the cost for the starter kit, regular party prizes and the cost of purchasing new Zyia items frequently. It was no financial gain to me to keep selling Zyia.
You often get what you put into it. If we work harder, we usually get more. This is the law of sowing and reaping, which I strongly believe in. MLMs are not a profitable business, no matter what the promises made to new reps.
The AARP Foundation has conducted a study that found 47% of MLM representatives lose money, 27% make a loss, and 25% report making a profit. Consider that 91% say they joined MLM to make money. This means there are many reps who don’t make as much money as they expected.
That was why I joined Zyia. I wanted additional income for my family and didn’t want it to continue paying me back. To cut costs, I decided to stop investing in it sooner than expected.
