With New Year’s resolutions in full force, it’s time to start thinking about achieving your workout goals for 2016 — and what better way to get moving than with a new pair of workout pants? Nothing motivates more than a brand new outfit to wear to hit the gym, barre class, bootcamp or the great outdoors. Whatever your preferred method is to get in shape, reviewers give these best workout pants two thumbs up for never chafing, pilling or bunching while your torching those extra holiday calories.
1. Zella Live-in Slim Fit Leggings
Reviewers love the slim fit of these leggings and that they keep legs warm on chilly mornings. They also come in a variety of colors and patterns, assuring that you’ll always have a top to match.
2. Nike Women’s Pro Tights
What’s not to love about a simple workout pant that’s less than $30? Wearers give these tights great reviews for working out or running errands because they don’t stretch out after wearing a few times and they move with you rather than up-and-down and all around as you’re squatting and running in the gym.
3. UA Perfect Pant
If you’re not a fan of slim leggings when you’re working out, then reviewers promise you’ll love these pants from Under Armour. Tight-fitting on top to stay as you move, the fit-and-flare style won’t constrict your leg movement. Reviewers love the way they feel but the con is that right now they only come in black.
4. Athleta Quest Chaturanga Capri
Right now it’s cold outside but it won’t be year-round, so come spring and summer you’ll want these capris from Athleta. Coming in pretty patterns and colors, reviewers love the soft, lightweight wicking fabric for warmer days. The tight waistband also keeps your belly “tucked-in” and not “pushed-out,” which several reviewers appreciate.
5. Lululemon Inspire Tight II
In the past couple of years, customers haven’t been so kind to the Lululemon brand, saying that the fabric is too sheer and that it pills. However, the company has changed its fabric blend and reviewers give this pair of leggings huge props for comfort, sweat absorbency and overall fit.
6. Calia by Carrie Underwood Essential Printed Capris
New to the workout market, there isn’t anything that you won’t love about these capris. Coming in cute, fun prints they are made with moisture-wicking material and microbial technology to keep the sweat and odor at bay. Perfect for the gym, running, barre or yoga, these capris are definitely tops with reviewers.
