Best Workout Leggings

best workout leggings

In the past 6 weeks, I’ve worn my workout leggings a ton. Admittedly I’m not one to wear my leggings all day. I feel more “me” when I get dressed in jeans and a top. But that’s slowly changing as I fit my workouts in at home whenever I can (usually in the afternoon). Sometimes it feels pointless to get dressed in one outfit only to change into my workout clothes a few hours later. And I can assure you I’m not switching back into regular clothes after my workout. It’s straight from workout clothes to pajamas for this girl!

Since I’ve been wearing them a lot lately, I’ve developed some favorites. These are the best workout leggings according to moi.

Athleta¬†High Rise Chaturanga to Town Tight – If I’m wearing workout leggings all day, it’s most likely this pair. The side pockets are clutch for fitting my phone if I’m out for a run or just running around after the kids. And the zippers at the ankles add a little extra touch.

Outdoor Voices 7/8 Dipped Warmup Legging – These are my current #1 when it comes to workout leggings. They suck you in in all the right places. The colors and designs are a step above your average. I get compliments on them all the time. I got the black pair for Christmas a few years ago and want to add the blue as a reward for working out consistently the past two months. I deserve it, right??

Lululemon Fast & Free 7/8 Tight – My Lululemon tights have a special place in my heart since I wore them when I was training for a marathon four years ago. It’s almost a requirement that running tights have pockets for my phone, a tissue, etc.

Lululemon Wunder Under Hi-Rise 7/8 Tight – I’m pretty sure these are Lululemon’s #1 bestseller. I wear them for yoga or barre. They are a great basic black legging. Nothing fancy, but they get the job done.

Nike Lux Running Tights – As the name implies, these workout leggings are geared towards running. I have an older version without pockets, which is my only complaint. It looks like they’ve since added pockets. For a true running tight, these are the most comfortable pair I’ve found.

Do you have a favorite pair of workout leggings?
