And why not a fro-yo while you're at it?

3. They will make you run faster than you've ever run before!

Run Lola Run

And you'll look cooler doing it, obviously.

4. You can finally throw away your gross yoga pants.

Bye Bye Bye

See ya, suckers! Flared pants are totally out.

5. They were originally designed for superheroes.


Those powers translate, right?

6. They make your legs instantly look more sculpted.

The tighter, the better. Tim Gunn said so, therefore, it is the gospel.

7. The features are so worth it.


Sweat-wicking, compression, mesh zones, body-mapping, AND flat seams? It's like they were woven with unicorn hair.

8. You hardly have any!

Except for maybe the purple Lululemons, and the blue Nikes, and those funky Goldsheeps, and the Athletas...

9. Plus almost everything is in the laundry.

So it's kind of essential. Who has time for wash anyway?

10. You're going to look even better than your fave instructor.
