I’m totally on board with the whole “athleisure” trend. You know, where you style your workout gear and mix it with casual pieces to create a look that takes you from gym to errands. It’s comfortable, stylish and perfect for me on the days I’m at home with Bryce- whether we are playing at the park, going to the grocery store or just hanging around at home.
In a perfect world, I love to workout every day. It’s my stress relief and helps me stick to my fitness goals, but getting in a sweat session daily isn’t always the case. But I’ll let you in on a little secret: on the days I can’t squeeze in a workout, I wear these Sweetflexx leggings.
As a Mom, I’m definitely a multi-tasker. And these leggings are too.
Sweetflexx leggings help make every step you take each day count. Here’s what’s neat about them: they have resistance bands sewn into the front of them to give you an extra 4 lbs of resistance with each step.
What does that mean? Extra resistance with each step equates to additional caloric burn (hurray!) and improved body composition with increased leg, butt and lower core toning. According to study by Yale University, for someone of my size this could equate to an extra 200+ calories burned per day. The fabric is also designed to stretch 4 ways (love!) and is infused with crushed jade to help lower your body temperature by up to 10 degrees so you don’t overheat! I love leggings that work (literally).
Style-wise, you can’t go wrong with a black pair of leggings. These do run a tad small, so I’d suggest sizing up. You can pair them with your favorite tunic, chambray button up or cargo jacket, or even a t-shirt and a scarf like I did here. These leggings are so nice for your day to day activities, errands, and running around with your littles so you can multi-task and burn some extra calories, making every step count!
If you are interested in these leggings, make sure to use code stylefiles for $25 off a purchase! They are slightly pricier than leggings I typically buy, but the promo code and the toning + extra calorie burn totally sweeten the deal.
