Gym shorts are one of the most common pieces of women’s athletic wear for every type of sport or activity out there. Whether you plan to work out indoors or outdoors, play sports or participate in a gym class, shorts are almost always a great choice. They can also be paired with a cute top to create and on-the-go ready outfit for any occasion.
Lightweight, stretchy, moisture wicking fabrics are the secret to the perfect pair of running shorts. As for the rest? That all comes down to your own preference! Running shorts come in both looser fits as well as tighter cuts that mold more closely to your body when you run. Some women prefer the looser shorts to keep cool and refreshed during long runs. Others prefer longer, more fitted shorts because they help to prevent the thighs from rubbing together between strides. However some women want the best of both worlds; for this specific purpose, a third style of running shorts incorporates a fitted bottom layer and, over top, a looser short. This model is specifically designed to keep from riding up, keeping you comfortable and distraction-free, but to provide a more modest coverage than simply running in the fitted option. These benefits all apply to walking and power walking as well.
Perfect for different activities
Athletic shorts are an obvious fit for sporting activities because they allow for a maximum range of motion, allowing you to function freely without being hindered by your clothes. Women who pursue either boxing or martial arts training will love the freedom to move, kick, and dodge. Other workout styles, such as yoga and Pilates, can feel easier when wearing shorts – especially “hot yoga” and “hot Pilates” which are performed in a 105 degree studio! Many women who pursue weightlifting or CrossFit training may prefer to work out in leggings, but shorts are a great option here as well; the dry-touch breathable fabrics keep perspiration from becoming a nuisance while you lift, and you can maintain full range of motion in your hips for deep squats and other gymnastic movements.
And, of course, shorts are always one of the most comfortable workout apparel choices for the outdoors in the summertime! They can even be paired with a long sleeve shirt or a sweatshirt to be worn in the cooler weather in late spring and early fall.
And don’t forget that, in a world where athleisure outfits are dominating the market, that now more than ever women love to wear workout apparel out and about as they pursue their everyday activities. A pair of patterned workout shorts can be paired with a plain white top and sneakers to put together an effortlessly cute outfit for running errands. Likewise, wearing shorts with a flannel shirt or cute top can create a perfect outfit to wear at family picnics or other outdoor gatherings so that you can look great and feel comfortable at the same time. If you are meeting up with a group of friends right after your workout and don’t have time to go home for a shower and change of clothes, then you can even throw on a sweatshirt or athletic jacket, pull your hair up in a baseball cap, and look refreshed and ready to greet the world.
