Cheap gym leggings............. why they're NOT worth your money.
When you're scouting for new activewear you probably want it to look good, as well as feel good and if you can save yourself some cash money, well of course you're going to, right?
The downside to cheap gym leggings, or in fact cheap activewear, is that sometimes you end up spending more money in the long run.
CHEAP PRICE, CHEAP QUALITY
I love a bargain as much as the next, so over the years I have of course gone with the cheap option on so many things, not just my activewear and ultimately they have ended up lacking in quality.
Specifically with activewear stitching can be a point of poor quality control, so this is one of the first things I check, the last thing you want is a stitch to start unravelling and ending up with a hole mid-workout. Although if it hasn't ripped, it may be fixable if you're handy with a needle and thread!
If you're wearing your favourite pair of gym leggings day after day, they will naturally wear down over time, but you want that to be after years, not months, or even weeks!
Especially in areas like the inner thigh and bum. if your gym leggings aren't squat proof, you can bet it will be even quicker to become thread bare.
ARE THEY FIT FOR THE JOB?
When you're buying new activewear you want to make sure it can actually hold up through the type of exercise you're planning on doing. There are plenty of places that sell activewear at a bargain price, but if you're being beasted at your local crossfit box, they need to have those non-negotioables; squat proof, sweat proof and fuss free. The last thing you want is to be hitching your leggings up every few seconds, because they keep falling down and thus ruining a potential personal record!
WHO'S MAKING THEM? AND AT WHAT COST?
Our world is ever changing and gradually moving away from those child sweatshop horror stories, but we should question where aour activewear is being made. If it is being sold for a crazy-cheap price, who is making it? Are they being paid a fair wage for their hard work? Sometimes it's worth that bit of research and peace of mind knowing that no human is suffering, so you can look good on the gym floor.
INVEST IN THE BEST
Saving up to invest in a high quality, slightly more expensive activewear can be truly worth the wait. Knowing that you're paying for a more luxe, item that has durable fabric, designed to meet the needs of your workout, will move with you feeling like a second skin and not distract you from getting your training done!
