Best Workout Leggings For Every Kind Of Exercise
Finding the best workout leggings can seem like a chore with all the choice out there. You want a pair that's functional, comfortable and supportive so that you can nail your fitness goals in style, every time. Not too much to ask, is it?
But here's the thing – the more you train the more you'll realise that a spin class needs a different legging fabric to strength training sessions. And so on. But don't sweat it: Team has done the leg-work for you and rounded up the women's gym leggings that maximise performance and comfort while ticking all the technical boxes too.
Whether you're looking for gym leggings that'll keep you dry on the spin bike, or the best workout leggings that aren’t at all see through (the worst), this round up has you covered.
BEST HIGH WAISTED WORKOUT LEGGINGS
Lorna Jane's quick dry fitness leggings are perfect if you want that little bit extra in the tummy-flattening area, and feature mesh panels at the back of the knees and calves and hidden pockets for your keys and phone.
BEST RUNNING LEGGINGS
Designed to support key leg muscles engaged while you run, these are the holy grail of running leggings for maximum support and performance. As daylight hours shorten you'll likely be running in the dark, so the reflective panels make these the best running leggings for winter.
BEST NON-SEE THROUGH LEGGINGS
Gym leggings that go see-through are your worst nightmare. Trust in Reebok for completely opaque women's gym leggings that won't leave you self-conscious during downward facing dog.
BEST GYM LEGGINGS
The panels offer great muscle support during workouts and are a fun retro print to wear to the gym. Truly the best leggings for working out.
BEST YOGA LEGGINGS
Yoga leggings need to be made from fabric that's both comfortable and stretchy, and this Manuka pair is exactly that (plus, grey is a colour that will just never go out of style).
BEST STRENGTH TRAINING LEGGINGS
Supportive and stretch-knit, these will take your strength training to the next level.
BEST LEGGINGS FOR SPIN
The key to pushing yourself in spin class (or one of at least) is not feeling drenched. This chic pair of women's gym leggings are made from super sweat-wicking fabric and will keep you dry 'til the end of your ride.
BEST LEGGINGS FOR HIIT
Made from sweat-wicking and odour resistant material, these stretch knit women's gym leggings move with you all throughout your workout.
BEST LULULEMON WORKOUT LEGGINGS
Lululemon's new functional tights were designed to keep us all comfortable while we sweat it out; the new Everlux fabric pulls sweat away from your skin and spreads it out for a quicker drying legging. The result? Seriously quick drying leggings.
BEST SWEATY BETTY WORKOUT LEGGINGS
Famous because they’re a great all-rounder (in both the figure shaping and performance departments), the Power leggings are super stretchy so you don't get that 'restricted' feel during class. They sell out fast, so be quick in adding to cart.
BEST LEGGINGS YOU CAN WEAR ALL THE TIME
Flash yet functional, Nike's festive leggings feature a high waistband that stays in place (no rising up or down during Barre) and sweat-wicking fabric. They'll take you from Pilates to brunch.
