I have absolutely zero shame in admitting that I am one sweaty gal. I do my lifts in the morning and runs in the evening, which means I go through about two sets of workout clothes a day. Let's not forget the post-workout lounge gear, too.
Video of the Day
Yes, I essentially go from one workout fit to the next. And even on my rest days, when I'm just running errands or chilling on the couch, I love to be in fitness-friendly clothes.
That's all to say: I spend a lot of money on exercise apparel. Whenever I can find a high-quality, low-cost piece of workout wear, I instantly add it to my cart. So, when I found these CRZ YOGA athletic ankle pants, I didn't hesitate to buy them.
A Quick Language Note
We make deliberate choices about the language we use when it comes to gender. While more brands now carry gender-neutral workout clothes, you’ll still typically see clothing brands, like CRZ YOGA, market their products to men or women.
The main differences between most women's and men's activewear is width and size. In some cases, men's clothing is built with a more relaxed fit, so people with a broader build or who like to wear layers underneath may want to try men's versions, while people with a narrower build or who don't want to layer underneath may prefer women's versions. We encourage everyone to purchase the products that feel right for them.
Functionality and Features
Alongside my love of Amazon dupes of high-priced brands, like fan-favorite Lululemon, I also adore functional day-to-day clothing. As I like to joke with my friends, I never know when I'm going to need to break into a jog or hip-flexor stretch. These pants are the perfect blend of function and fashion.
Paired with a jacket or tee, they look a lot like business casual dress pants, especially if you buy them in black or dark blue. These also have a straight ankle cut, giving them a more clean, formal look, compared to a pair of standard sweats.
But where function is concerned, the stretchy fabric gives me just the flexibility I need to lunge or forward fold in my living room. And they're lightweight and breathable, so I can wear them comfortably on a warm bike ride, too.
These pants come up to right below my belly button, so they still offer enough coverage to wear with a longer sports bra. And the waist height and drawstring helps them stay in place as I climb stairs or hit the elliptical.
Another nice bonus: The fabric is wrinkle-resistant, which is why these are so great for your day-to-day activities. They stay looking sharp even after a long treadmill session or bike ride.
And, compared to the similar Lululemon version, they're only a fraction of the cost. You can buy these dupes in 24 different colors (yes, 24!) and they come in XS to XXL. But before you buy, make sure to check the size chart to find your perfect pair.
Get Your Perfect Pair of Lululemon Dupes
The first time I bought these pants, I played it safe with a black pair. After all, black goes with pretty much anything. But now that I'm a huge fan, I'm ready to invest in another set.
And, they're an absolute steal — compared to the Lululemon version's $118 price tag, these workout pants are only $32.
So, what are you waiting for? Hop on this deal and add these must-have pants to your cart and fitness routine.
