Some people seem to pay little attention to their workout attire. Some just look plain silly. Believe me, I’ve been to the gym, I work at a gym – I have seen these individuals first hand.
I don’t spend an inordinate amount of time prepping for my workout. However, I do attempt to look somewhat cute as it boosts my mood. And me in a good mood equates to a much better workout.
Besides, when you’re staring at yourself in the mirror for nearly an hour it’s nice to look, well, nice.
My latest favorite resource for gym attire is one of my favorite stores in general: Target. Who would have guessed?!?!? After years of struggling to find stuff that’s both attractive and functional I am relieved to have found the ladies athletic department. Oh Joy!
Of course, the item I love the absolute most are the Champion bootcut fitted pants. Oh how I love thee!!
Love, Love, I am in Love!
First of all – they’re $19.99. Is that not a rockin’ price?!??! I have seriously spent so much more on other gym pants that really were so much less lovable. I heart bargains and this price (not even a sale price and they do go on sale) is fab!
Next up, the length is smoking. These babies come in multiple lengths. I am a bit on the tall side (almost 5’8”) and so regular pants don’t always measure up. I have, in the past, looked as though I was fully prepared for a flood to come rolling through at any minute. Not, in case you wondered, the look to be sporting unless “dork” is what you’re going for. But these come in a tall size. WOO HOO!!
From the Target Website - this photo does not do them justice!
And another thing – they fit so wonderfully well. They stay in place and don’t slip down even when I am running (I have experienced major slippage with some pants and it isn’t pleasant). What’s also cool is that these even seem to give me some nice support. They don’t cut off my circulation or squeeze my thighs as if they were sausages – but they make me feel as though I am locked and loaded. My thighs and tummy appreciate the support and love being held so close!
Finally – I do believe these make my bum look good!! And we all know that is the number one top thing to look for in a pair of pants.
Oh, I almost forget – I’ve had my lovely pants for some time now and they hold up quite well after multiple washings. Color and shape are still super. (I also always skip the dryer, so FYI)
