But where do we start?
Well, we’ve narrowed it down to some of the top picks in the women’s leggings collection at Sun & Sand Sports online, highlighting the latest technologies designed for your needs.
Subscriptions to pay-as-you go classes from Bikram yoga to CrossFit, through to Zumba have increased in recent years and with so many options comes the need to have leggings that are multi-purpose and can support a plethora of sports. This is where the Nike Power Training Leggings for women are ideal as they contain Nike Power Fabric made to fit and flatter the body with a unique, stretchy Polyester composition, higher waist and flat seams to suit your individual shape. This is an ideal tech legging for activities such as yoga, Pilates, CrossFit or strength training.
Higher impact sports such as running are demanding and muscles are under constant wear, tear and fatigue. When your body is up against it, what you are wearing simply has to do more. Nike Zonal Strength technology in the Nike Zonal Strength Leggings for women works by strategically placed compression in key muscle areas that reduce muscle vibration as you impact the ground, thereby fighting the feeling of fatigue. The four-way stretch fabric also allows for great mobility. As well as the technology, these leggings have a back pocket for small items such as your keys and credit card to take with you as you go the distance.
If keeping cool is the number one priority when the heat is on, then the Nike Pro Cool technology in the Nike Pro Microcosm Capri Leggings for women can help.
