I was given this outfit by Gymshark, and I am honestly so glad to try it out. I’m a fitness instructor, personal trainer avid gym go-er, and squats are my middle name. So I’m always in search for a good pair of workout leggings. Oh, and a cute gym top is cool too.
The concern I have with workout leggings is that: It always seems to slide down. Because my hip to waist ratio is literally not fit for normal clothes out there, leggings always sit perfectly on my hips but are incredibly loose around my waist. And this sort of causes my leggings to slip, and oops. Butt crack. Not good. And also this gets super uncomfortable especially when you keep having to pull up your pants constantly during your sets. Hey, I only got 1 minute rest between sets so I ain’t got no time to be pulling up my leggings. And that wastes 5 precious seconds of resting. So, no way josé.
Another concern I have with leggings is that, particularly when I’m doing squats, you can see through the fabric. And it doesn’t help that most squat racks in gyms are facing people. So, I was keen to find a pair of leggings that stays where it’s supposed to say, and does not attract unwanted attention of my bare bum. So I took these babies to the gym and tried them out.
These are the latest release from the Gymshark’s women’s range, the burnout leggings. I was surprised. They stayed up the entire time, and you cannot see through the fabric. Score! I even had to ask my friend to watch me squat, just so we were clear that it was none see through. They also have a dry moisture management technology, which means that it absorbs your sweat as you workout.
It helps you to keep dry and comfortable by wicking away sweat from your skin, without leaving sweat marks. Because we all know, who likes sweat marks? The fabric is super stretchy, giving you a greater range of motion, which is perfect for exercises such as squats, burpees, lunges and any exercise that requires a lot of motion. It has a snug fit, which hugs your body and makes the fabric stay in place. This makes it perfect for all activities, whether it is running, lifting, HIIT, aerobics, ect. These leggings are made for all you fitness ladies!
And let’s be honest… These Gymshark women’s leggings look amazing. They literally hug all your curves, and keep them in place. I don’t know about you, but they make everything look firmer, perkier and just ten times better. Trust me ladies. And, they’re not even just gym leggings, they’re brunch leggings, school leggings, “I’m going to grab something from the grocery store but still want to look fly” leggings… They are honestly such a cool and hip pair of leggings, I could wear them everywhere. And I actually do wear them everywhere. They’re so comfortable and versatile. They match any outfit I put on, because the way they’ve been made and styled is to suit the gym and outdoors. Which is perfect for me! As I’m always bouncing about the gym, university and hanging out with friends. So I could throw on a gym top and some trainers, or a cropped cami and sneakers, and I’m good to go. It’s such a sporty look, and let’s be honest: looking sporty is in. I love how the logo is printed in bold along the side. It screams Gymshark. And it screams their motto ‘Be a Visionary’, which I personally think is an amazing motto to have. And the fact that it’s printed boldly on my leggings, reminding me every day to ‘be a visionary’ yes please! I love the extra motivation!
I was given the Gymshark women’s vest, the seamless vest, in pink. Let me just say, I absolutely love the colour. It comes in two other colours, charcoal, light grey and mint green. And they’re all fabulous. This is currently my favourite gym top of all time. Firstly, the fabric is super light and soft. I actually feel like I’m wearing my pyjamas when I put it on, because it’s just so super comfy. There’s an in-built knit technology, and if you can see up close, the knit is located around areas where you would usually get more sweat: your chest, along your sides, mid-section of the back and upper back.
This technology works to effectively wick away moisture from your skin immediately, so you feel cooler, more refreshed and like you never broke a sweat. And it also fits nicely and snugs against your body, meaning that it doesn’t ride up. You know when you do burpees, or when you’re doing deadlifts, sometimes your shirt would just magically ride up, leaving your whole back exposed for the world to see? And you’re always having to pull it down every time… That gets terribly annoying. This shirt does not ladies! And, it is super cute. I love the design, and the fit is impeccable.
So overall I would rate this outfit:
Gym use: 5/5
