The bond between you and your favorite pair of leggings could rival that of any lifelong friendship or romantic partner. We know because we relate. The best workout leggings are comfortable and stylish but also need to serve you in ways that your “normal leggings” don’t. For a pair of workout leggings to join the ranks of our most trusted workout clothes, they have to meet a few standards. We judged these for their opacity (because squats), their ability to wick moisture (because sweat), and whether they actually stay in place (because pulling up your waistband only slows down your pace).
Whether you’re a yogi or a hiker, below, you’ll find all of the leggings we love most for fitness and exercise. We pretty much live in our athleisure, so you can trust these are the real deal. Below, find the perfect fit for you.
Perfect for training your inner professional athlete, whether hiking, biking, or weight-lifting.
