Leggings, tights, activewear...no matter where you look in the fitness world these pants are essential to any workout! But if you’ve ever brought a pair of tights, you would know the “perfect” pair isn’t just the first pair you find at the store, instead it takes some time and money to try, try and try until you find a pair that works. Well, I’m here to help with this quick how to guide on finding the best pair of tights for you!  

Firstly, you need to consider the type of exercise you like to do...? Are you a running on the beach and yoga person or a CrossFit heavy weights person or a mix of everything? It only matters what exercises you're doing because you need to choose a brand and fabric that will hold up during your favourite way to move. For example, if you’re heavy into squats and love leg day, you’re going to need a solid pair of squat proof tights. Try the solid colour range from Soul Active https://baguiosports.com/collections/soul-active. 

If it’s yoga, Pilates and light cardio you’re into, you can look at the fantastic functional range from Aqua Activewear. Everyone’s needs can be met with a range of activewear from prints to solid colour, full length to shorts, covering all the actives from beach days to CrossFit. Available in store at Baguio Sports or online at https://www.aquaactivewear.com.au/ 

Secondly it is essential that you choose the correct size tights for your body and shape, everyone is different and size does not matter...however one problem occurs if you try size down in your tights. Often wearing a pair of tights too small can cause even the most squat proof tights to become see-through and less durable. It doesn’t matter what kind of fit you prefer, only that if you do like a tighter fit but do a lot of squats, shop around for a material that achieves compression rather than sizing down.
