If your workout wardrobe needs a refresh, we’ve got you covered. One item of clothing that will always come in handy is a pair of gym leggings.
When shopping for a new pair, there are a few things to consider: First, the fit – you don’t want them to be too tight or too loose when you’re agile. Second, the function – anti-squat, side pockets and adjustable belts are all essential.

In our roundup below, we’ve picked the best for all exercise types, whether you’re a runner, avid yogi, or cardio fanatic.
From budget designs to super-luxurious designs, they meet different needs and aesthetics. After all, there’s no reason you still can’t add your personal style to your workout gear.
