Jennifer Lopez isn’t like the average gym goer. From what we can tell from the countless photos of her en route to fitness centers, it seems like the music mogul actually enjoys getting in an intense sweat session. And even though we may never fully achieve that positive J. Lo fitness mindset (we can all dream, right?), we might have found her secret to making going to the gym way less daunting.
You’ve heard it time and time again: Cute exercise gear can be a strong motivator for you to want to go to the gym. Think about it: When you’re wearing a good ‘fit, you’re way more likely to feel good about going out with your friends, even if you’d much rather stay in watching Netflix with a bowl of popcorn, right? Well, the same holds true for a trip to the gym. A trendy workout set can fully encourage you to skip the snooze button and hit the treadmill, instead.
On a recent gym excursion, Lopez slayed in leopard-print leggings from Niyama Sol, a cropped hoodie from Guess, and chunky high-top sneakers, once again proving she is the queen of cute, comfy workout style. But that’s not all her off-duty look demonstrated. It made quite a convincing case for adding a pair of spotted leggings to your rotation because, well, J. Lo plus fierce, on-trend bottoms equals one can’t-pass-up purchase.
This recent sighting isn’t the first time Lopez stepped out in leopard leggings. In fact, her love of the animal print workout pants seems to date back all the way to 2015, and now we fully want in.
So there you have it: The secret to getting into the J. Lo workout mindset starts by slipping into a pair of leopard leggings — or really, any workout pants that make you feel darn good. Luckily, the market is chock-full of cute finds that will, without a doubt, inspire you to book that next barre class. Shop our favorite leopard-inspired leggings below.
