Thanks to Fila Toning, I was given the opportunity to review their yoga/pilates/fitness pants. In fact, I am wearing my pair right now. I typically wear size medium, but the Fila rep suggested that I get a small to get the best benefit from the toning panels. When I first tried to put them on, I thought they would be too small, but once they were in place, I really liked the way they felt. They are extremely comfortable and I feel as if they are holding in all of my trouble zones.
I wore my Fila Toning Yoga/Pilates pants to a training session with one of my clients. We focused mostly on a lower body workout. I appreciated the firm hold the pants provided and the feeling that I was working my legs and butt just a little extra via the added resistance provided in the pants. My client said that they were very flattering and that my legs looked slimmer. Yippee! Who does not love that? I think she’ll be ordering a pair Fila!
In addition to these pants, Fila has an entire toning line of clothing. More information on the entire collection here: http://www.fila.com
Here is a basic description of the toning pants that I tried:
- A Pilates and yoga pant designed to create a slimming effect
- Polyester and Lycra
- XS – XXL
- $55.00 at Fila
This pant is a highly structured, with heavy seeming, but this helps to create a slimmer, smoother appearance. I like the way they look and feel. Some research also shows that supporting your muscles with a compression-type of garment can help reduce muscle soreness. This is not stated by Fila specifically, but I have been reading some research and experienced similar results with these types of garments. (feel free to research and come to your own conclusions on this). That said, they are meant to fit quite snug so if this is not something you like, these pants are not for you.
Overall, the Fila Toning Pants are an item that I would recommend them to my friends and clients. Disclaimer: I was given a free pair of pants, but otherwise, these are my own opinions and I have not been compensated in any other way.
