Who’s It For: The do it all junkie Details: These shorts are meant to take you from indoor to outdoor sweat sessions with ease. With pockets to hold your debit card, your keys, or chapstick, and a high rise seam, you are locked a loaded to go anywhere. The high rise seam is nice for us women who like to keep everything tight around the midsection when bending and moving in yoga, or the weight room. The length of the shorts is perfect for those of us who don’t like them riding up and exposing our bootys!
If you have athletic or thick thighs, these may not be the shorts for you as the cuff seam is a bit tight for some users even when you order the correct size. I personally have pretty big thighs and haven’t had a problem- but! Just something to keep in mind.
Sometimes, you want to run to the gym or your spin session from your home just because you’re feeling good, and that’s what we love about these shorts. They are long enough to give you the coverage you’re looking for, but also the compression that sucks in your waist and keeps everything smooth and tight. These shorts are great for the get up and go sweat junkie that trains in multiple ways, some even on the same day.
Who’s It For: Our running sweat junkie Details: Light-weight, sweat-wicking fabric, two gel pockets to stash keys or cards, one zipper pocket, and adjustable waist band Lightweight fabric that doesn’t chafe, pockets, reviewers say the style is very flattering
Our long legged sweat junkies say these tend to be short, and to our big-booty sweat junkies, the inside lining does cut into your backside, so be sure to size up.
These shorts were designed for our sweat junkies that long long runs and intense HIIT or sprints. When we run outside we need a place for storage, so having 3 secure pockets, 1 with zipper is huge. The fabric is light weight and sweat-wicking so we can feel comfortable no matter how far we’ve ran.
Who’s it good for: All sweat junkies, especially our runners Details: These shorts have a secret inner pocket, reflective detail, soft fabric, and a thick waistband that lies flat along skin so there is no digging. It has the most relaxed feeling, and is non-restrictive. The reflective detail is great for our runners who prefer to run in the later hours. The inner pocket is super helpful, so there is no need for you to wear a backpack or fanny pack to hold your keys. They also come in 2 different lengths so you can choose which feels better for you.
The 2.5 shorty shorts are SHORT, so make sure to checkout the longer ones if you are a sweat junkie with a booty, or longer legs.
These cross-sport shorts are meant for the sweat junkie to move freely with no fear of sweating through the fabric as they are fully lined but flexible so they move with you, without the chafe.
