As a run coach and fitness expert I am very particular about what I wear. Many times a single article of clothing can make all of the difference in my workout as well as how I train others. I always dress according to what workout I am doing, the classes that I teach or the clients that I train. With that being said, I am always looking for clothing staples that are versatile, stylish and feel like second skin.
The Lululemon Fast and Free leggings provide just that. These leggings reach down to your ankles but are not too long. They provide a total covered leg but they feel as if you have nothing on making them perfect for running, plyometrics or a total body workout. I generally do not wear shorts (professionally) but am in constant need of a lightweight material that allows me to move freely while demonstrating an exercise, running with my Georgia Tech class and/or sneaking in a working out between it all. The Fast and Free leggings do the job in more ways than one and I’m excited to have another clear staple to add to my wardrobe.
I was so impressed with the wear of the Fast and Free that I bought a pair for my best friend, who is also a former track and field athlete. Ironically, we had only considered Nike for performance tights but we both agreed these felt amazing.
My friend was a major fan of the high waist-line while I would’ve preferred a more neutral waist. Having another option of a neutral waist might be worth consideration. Also, because the leggings feel so free, I might encourage a buyer to at least try one size smaller than you would usually wear to ensure that they fit like a glove.
Thank you - Lulu
