Summer is here and it’s time to swap the leggings out for some gym shorts. Gyms are sweaty enough, never mind when it scorching outside, and even though it’s great to get a sweat on, sometimes our thick gym leggings can be a little overwhelming and restrictive. But just it can be hard to find your perfect pair of leggings, your ideal gym shorts can also be tough to find. 

To help you on your search for comfort this summer, we’ve narrowed down our top 5 pairs of gym shorts for women to see you through this season.

1. Essentials Training Energy Shorts

These super-lightweight shorts have an elasticated waistband and an adjustable draw-cord to give you your perfect fit. Made with a four-way stretch fabric and side split hems for optimal range of movement. 

And, an essential for summer training, these shorts feature sweat-wicking technology, absorbing sweat fast for comfort throughout your workout. 


2. Power Shorts

The women’s Power shorts are the ideal high-quality option for intense training that requires full range of movement. Whether it be functional fitness, athletics, or just a heavy leg day. Squat proof and featuring dry-tech technology, these shorts were made with comfort and movement in mind. 


3. Shape Seamless

If you want a bit more coverage than the Power shorts, the Shape Seamless cycling shorts are the ones for you. Providing a flattering high-waisted fit, seamless design for comfort, and efficient quick-drying fabric for practicality. 


4. Engage Shorts

If it’s the relaxed fit you prefer, the engage shorts are perfect. Although this collection is made with combat sports in mind, they suit any gym session that requires speed, agility and stamina. The relaxed fit keeps these comfortable, allowing for full range of movement, and the thick waistband ensures you feel secure. 


5. Adapt Textured Shorts

An all-rounder for tough training, the Adapt shorts will cope with whatever the gym throws your way. These gym shorts have a high waistband for support, flattering ribbed panels (perfect for rubbing any excess chalk off of!) and of course, breathable, sweat-wicking fabric. They also come in some gorgeous colours and patterns if you’re looking for some brighter colours for the summer!
