    A guide to O’Neills Leggings

    Long gone are the days where you just pulled out any pair of tracksuit bottoms and an old T-shirt to head to the gym. Fashionable and functional gym kit is the order of the day, with leggings becoming a staple of workout wardrobes across the country. Not just confined to the gym active wear is increasingly the choice for having a coffee, doing the groceries and easy days lounging in the house (especially since we’re all spending more time than usual at home currently). Luckily you don’t need to compromise on the fashion or functionality as our range of O’Neills leggings provide both.

    Sometimes we all need that extra bit of motivation to get up and at it. Interestingly,  Dr Jonathan Fader, a sports psychologist, says that when we put on new fitness gear we get a motivational boost, an effect that can result in improved motivation, focus and gains.

  4. What do you need to consider when buying new leggings?

    Long gone are the days where you just pulled out any pair of tracksuit bottoms and an old T-shirt to head to the gym. Fashionable and functional gym kit is the order of the day, so we’ve put together a guide on what you should look for when purchasing your next pair of leggings!

    1. Find the right style

    First things first, find the right style of leggings that match the activity you are going to participate in.

    Look for compression styles for intense activities. 

    Compression fabrics are tightly woven to help increase the circulation in your legs. However, they have an added benefit of making your legs look taut, your muscles more defined.

     

    Buy fitted leggings for yoga.
