Favorite workout pants – roundup

Workout pants are extremely important to me because there is nothing worse than working out in tights that won’t stay up or tights that don’t allow you to move well. I have tried a rediculous amount of workout pants and over time, I’ve found some favorites that I always grab without thinking so I’m going to share a few of them with you in case you are in the market for some workout pants that actually stay up, stretch with your body, and hold up over time too!

1. Lululemon Align Pant


Okay, I’m putting these first because once you try on a pair of these buttery soft leggings, you will be hooked! And there’s a chance that any other tights you try in the future will never be good enough because you’ve experienced the glorious feeling of the Align pant from Lululemon. I live in these and I try to get away with wearing them for every occasion (don’t judge). They are technically yoga pants, so they are not the most durable, but I still use them for any workout, really, because I love them so much. Just make sure you wash them on delicate with like fabrics (no jeans, towels, etc) and lay flat to dry.

They come in 7/8 length and a crop length, but sometimes (and as a tall girl, this is my fave) you can catch a pair of full length ones online at lululemon.com, but they sell out super fast!

2. Nike Pro Training Tights

These are a good basic Nike tight that I’ve had several versions of over time. They keep changing them and coming out with new versions but I’ve linked the current version on the Nike site. The fabric is nice and stretchy and the elastic at the waist really keeps them up throughout the workout.

3. Lululemon Speed Up Tight

There used to be a pair called the “Speed Tight” and I just about wore mine to the ground but now that I’m ready for a new pair I’m not seeing it on their website. It looks like the newer “Speed Up Tight” is taking over, and it’s actually really similar. These have pockets for your phone which in my opinion is awesome! They also stay up on your hips exceptionally well. They are designed for running but I actually love them for lifting in the gym. As with most Lululemon pants, they stretch amazingly and don’t go anywhere during your workout.

4. adidas Believe This Mesh Mix 7/8 Training Tights


I just recently got these at Dick’s Sporting goods and I tried on a few other adidas training tights. I must say I was pleasantly surprised! They are like a training tight with all the right seams but in buttery soft yoga pant material. I’m pretty sure I said “wow” when I put them on because they are just that comfortable!
