Leaner Meaner Workout Gear

work outInspired by the tight fitting, high performing uniforms worn by Rugby and American football players, many athletic wear designers are leaning things up this summer. They’re doing away with the baggy sweats of yesteryear and presenting new form-fitting gear.

The results are sports tees and pants that not only play well, but look damn good on. Here are some of the season’s favorites that are available now in stores.

Timoteo Champion Pant: Perfect for lounging around the house or working out in fashion at the gym, the Timoteo Champion Pants feature contrast side stripes, straight cut legs, comfort stretch fabric, and functional side pockets. Its clever waistband is what most captured our attention and is sure to catch the attention of the handsome jock working out next to you. Fashioned after a boxing short waistband, it adds just the right amount of stylish muscle to make these pants a real knockout. 100% mid-weight cotton fleece. $62.00/Timoteo.net

ES Workout long pants: If anyone knows sexy, it is ES Collection. Their new Workout Long pants are for guys who have done the heavy lifting and now aim to show it off. The low-cut pants fit tight around the hips, accentuating all the important curves on a man. Most brilliantly, there are two roomy pockets for keys, a wallet, or more likely for those random hands that might want to slip in for a feel. These pants should come with directions: Just Add Sweat…because everything else is there, including a sophisticated embroidered shield on the upper left side. Made from 95% cotton and 5% elastan. $162/LAJock.com

work out2Teamm8 Rider Sweat Pant: For the preppy athlete who aims to look sharp as he curls his dumbbells, Teamm8 presents its Rider Sweat Pant. It has been a particular standout among retailers this season because the pant can be dressed up or down. Slick yet super comfortable, with a tapered leg, these pants are just as suitable wearing out-and-about in the neighborhood as they are in the gym. Wear them with a tank or a collared shirt… both will work to give you that well coifed jock look. There are even two side pockets big enough to carry a small book in, you smarty. $79.00/LaJock.com

Freedom Reigns Body Pump: Whether you’re off to the gym or the ski slope, these Summer Games-inspired pant from Freedom Reigns will have athletes sporting Olympic-style this summer. They also double as long johns that are so comfortable; they can be worn as pajamas! Or better yet, wear them under your favorite workout shorts for that sexy layered look. Freedom Reigns gives you the versatility – or freedom – to wear sweats in the way that works best for you and your body. Also available as shorts. $55.00/LAJock.com
