sweaty betty leggings
June 24, 2013
I know I don’t make appearances in the gym often (I refer to myself as a “once-a-weeker”), much to the chagrin of my personal trainer fiancé. Once we are past the wedding and the honeymoon though, I PROMISE to be much better about it, which won’t be hard to do when I have stylish workout gear I can look forward to wearing. Courtesy of the brand Sweaty Betty, Britain’s ultra-cool active company for stylish, yet highly functional goods, I gave the Sweaty Betty Power Run Capri a good old test run, literally, in the gym this past weekend, and at the end of the workout hour, it’s performance certainly exceeded mine! This particular style has an inner key-size pocket, drawstrings, aerodynamic seaming, while being sweat-wicking and overall streamlining my look. I hiked up the hem a little, but for running outside on a brisk morning, having the ability to tug it down into a longer length is a plus.
After running on the elliptical, I did upper arm weights in a rowing-like motion, and finished off the session with some stretching and rolling out the tight spots in my legs on a foam ruler. Overall verdict? This pants are PERFECT for an intense, or mild workout! Although I opted for all-black ( I know, I can be boring sometimes!), other leggings, as well as practically every product category comes in memorable prints, neon hues, contrast stitching, and of-the-moment silhouettes for activities that range from yoga to surf and triathlons so that you can more easily blend your workout pieces into every day life.
P.S. – Sweaty Betty ships to the USA so go ahead and get to shopping…and then working out!
