We Tried It! Fila Body Toning System Pants
What it is: Fila Body Toning System Pants
What it's all about: These new exercise get ups come, promise to accelerate and enhance toning and sculpting as you workout. How do they do this? The pants provide compression and improve your body's blood circulation to get more bang for your buck when it comes to breaking a sweat.
I decided to put these pants to the test during a short run on my marathon-training schedule. To the park my pants and I went to run five miles. While most workout pants I'm not familiar with make me nervous, they are usually either too big and I spend my run hiking them up or they give me unsightly camel toe, these pants had a nice, snug feel to them. As I ran, they stayed put another very pleasant surprise. Basically, when I put them on it felt like a big hug (and I really like hugs). My legs, butt, and thighs definitely were compressed but not in a way where I felt like a fat sausage who had just squeezed herself into something she shouldn't have.
Though the results will obviously take longer than one run, and toning clothes and shoes are often seen with a skeptical eye by many experts, these pants are in the normal price range for athletic wear, so why not get the one that works double time as you workout?
Where to get it: Prices range from $40-$55, dickssportinggoods.com.
