These Leggings Will Change Your Workout

These Leggings Will Change Your Workout

As with most things in life, going to the gym is all the more bearable when you look good – which is why we’re such big fans of Sweaty Betty’s Zero Gravity Leggings and their bum-sculpting superpowers. To celebrate their 20th Birthday, the brand has released a limited edition pair, and whether you’re a yoga bunny or a boxing babe, this is why they’re well worth investing in (trust us, you won’t look back)…

1.  They’re High-Tech Far from just a pretty face, these leggings are built with one purpose: high performance. Crafted from quality Italian fabric and tested by athletes, they’ll hold their own against any sporting activity, and will help you save face mid-workout thanks to their ultra-lightweight, sweat-wicking, muscle-compressing technology. Quick-dry, so perfect for even the sweatiest of workouts, put them to the test in your HIIT, boxing and running class.

2. They Come In Myriad Prints

Bored of your go-to black leggings? Us too. Thankfully, with the Zero Gravity Leggings, you’ve got options. Choose from a range of patterns and colourways – think graphic floral prints in stylish hues. Of course, if you’re a die-hard black-legging devotee, there’s plenty of plain pairs to choose from.
3. They Boost Your Behind

We’d be lying if we said we didn’t wish our bum looked just a little bit better in the gym. Step in, Sweaty Betty. The Zero Gravity range is brilliantly bum-sculpting, giving the instant illusion of a lifted, more toned derrière – yess, they’re nothing short of a miracle. How do they do it? The clever fabric has the perfect combination of stretch and compression, so they hold you in at all the right places.

4. They Sculpt Your Legs

Bottoms aside, these beauties have also been carefully designed to shape and lengthen your legs, thanks to their sleek fit, contoured stitching and exceptional craftsmanship.  Tick, tick.

5. They’re Not Just For The Gym

Ever been in a rush and couldn’t be bothered to find alternative trousers? We’re guilty of wearing our gym leggings outside of the gym, but somehow we feel much less mortified when we’re in these. It could be down to the sculpting and boosting, or maybe it’s the fact that they’re so comfy and fit like a glove. Either way, we’ve been wearing them more than our jeans and that’s really saying something. We suggest pairing them with a chunky knit – no one will ever know.
6. They’ve Got All Lengths Covered

Don’t you just hate it when your workout wear doesn’t fit just so? There’s nothing more annoying than that awkward gap between your leggings and your socks – even worse, when you have to roll them up because they’re that little bit too long. Luckily, the Zero Gravity range comes in a multitude of leg lengths (over ten to be exact), which means you’ll find your perfect fit whether you’re 5ft11 of 5ft2 – there’s something for everyone. 

7. They’re So Carefully Considered

After 20 years in the making, you can rest assured that when it comes what you want in a pair of gym leggings, there really is no detail the Sweaty Betty team haven’t thought of. From the back pocket specifically designed to fit your iPhone, to the breathable mesh panels and draw cord tie at the waist, they’re everything we’ve ever wanted from our gym attire.

'What Our Health & Beauty Editor Thinks...'

"I'm a self-confessed gym bunny and have road tested these in every class from Reformer Pilates to HIIT. They've stood up against everything and are the first pair I've found that fit me perfectly, are comfortable and don't have any sheer bits.  They're also really flattering – they make my bum look incredible. I may have even worn them to brunch last weekend."
