High-Waisted Leggings that Give Me Life at the Gym

We are now pretty far into February, and if’ you’re like me, the new year brings about new health and fitness goals. While I can’t say I love walking to the gym in below-zero temperatures or blizzards, I can say that my love for high-waisted leggings has made it a little easier to make that trip the gym. I do a variety of workouts at the gym, and high-waisted leggings are the only way to go for me. From using the elliptical and biking to lifting and squatting, when I’m wearing high-waisted leggings I don’t have to worry about any unforeseen things happening. Do you know what I’m saying? Especially if you do any HIIT (high-intensity interval training) workouts that involve burpees. You want to make sure your leggings are keeping up with you!

I mean, honestly, I tend to love high-waisted anything. My jeans, my swimsuits, and my workout leggings are all high-waisted. The best part is that there is SUCH a variety of leggings out there right now to give you confidence in the gym. I’ve talked before about how when fashion meets fitness, I feel a bit more inspired to get to the gym! I will say though, I’m also looking forward to warmer days so I can go for more runs and walks with my dog. But for now, gym time it is!

Some of my favorite high-waisted legging styles include faux leather high-waisted leggings, multi-colored high-waisted leggings, in fun, spring bright colors, hot pink high-waisted leggings, or sometimes you gotta work out in “just do it” high-waisted leggings.

I’m currently doing a workout routine mix of elliptical, lifting, HITT and swimming. What are your favorite workouts right now? What do you wear to the gym? And most importantly, have any high-waisted legging recommendations for me? Always looking to stock up!

Thank you for stopping by my blog – and I hope you have a wonderful week, xoxo Rachel.

    I have yet to try out high- waisted legging. My fitness goal is to get 10,000 steps in a day.

      Agreed! I feel so much more motivated! Especially when in our public gym, sounds silly, but just like running errands or being at work, I want to put my best foot forward in what I wear and how I perform!

    I love high-waisted leggings for the gym! The majority of mine are and I love them. They fit so snug and just like you said, I don’t have to worry about them while I’m moving around!
