Alright, today I’m tackling a question that I’m asked pretty often….
I don’t know if you have this problem when it comes to workout pants but I hate when you are working out and when you go to do your squat, or jump, or lunge or mountain climbers, your pants are falling down mid exercise.
This is one of my biggest pet peeves.
Not only are you annoyed because you got in to perfect position, you’re all set up and you’re already feeling the burn
But you lose that concentration on your workout and lost that mind muscle connection which is the best feeling of the workout!
Any type of discomfort makes it harder to hit those fitness goals.
I’ve tried a lot of pants on during my career and currently my favourite workout pants are made by Nike, specifically the Dri-Fit Running line.
They are comfortable.
They don’t slip down my butt as I train.
They don’t hang low in the crotch or the opposite lol! I’ve stopped constantly readjusting!
The day I first tried them on, no word of a lie, I ended up buying 3 pairs that day. Two full length and a pair of the cropped.
It was love at first fit.
I have 5 pairs now and they have all aged well.
You know that problem that lulu lemon had with that recall on some of their pants being see through?
These pants are 5 years old and are not even there yet and the couple of the pairs I have that are more vibrant have not lost their colour.
They have such a nice breathable material and still don’t have any smell from all my work outs. Which is huge, as any seasoned gym goer probably knows..
I have been buying these since 2013 and they have never let me down yet!
Unfortunately the price can be quite expensive if you get them from the Nike store so I would suggest either going to an outlet (especially during boxing day, or other holiday specials!) or waiting for them to go on sale online.
Full price these pants run around $120.00-130.00 and are well worth it at that price.
However, the most I have paid for these pants are around $80.00 and my investment has paid me back and more!
Overall I feel very confident in these pants.
They aren’t tight in the waist where I feel that I constantly have to adjust.
They really shape the body so well that even wear them out on daily occasions, sometimes with a cute sweater!
