“If something stands between you and your success, move it. Never be denied.” – Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson
In times like these, its important to have goals, to try to stay on track and to be focused in a time of chaos. Born Tough aims to help you succeed in your fitness goals, by increasing your movement abilities and ensuring you have premium quaility athletic wear. In a previous blog post I reviewed the Born Tough Tank Top, today I am going to review the Born Tough Contoured Tracksuit Bottoms. Before this review I got to test the Born Tough Tracksuit Bottoms for a month of gym and home training, so that I could objectively review the product before you go to buy your own! In this review I look at the Price, Sizing, Comfort, Fit, Quality, Design, and Durability of the Tracksuit Bottoms.
But firstly, before I do I would like to tell you a little bit about the brand Born Tough. Born Tough create high class sports performance wear for all athletes, from powerlifters to long distance runners you will be able to find something you like on their website. I found their website very user friendly and they even have a cheeky easter discount running at the moment!
The price of these tracksuit bottoms is £19.99. I think this is a very reasonable price for sports tracksuits and everything on their website is very affordable. You can also get discounts if you sign up to their mailing list or if they have a promotion on, which they often do.
The sizes run a little bit small so I would suggest going up one or two sizes from your usual size to ensure they fit nicely. I am wearing a Small in the pictures which although fit, they were very tight and I would prefer to be wearing a Medium, even though I am usually a size 8 on the bottom. They have a wide range of sizes so you can definitely get one that fits you. Their sizes run from a XS to a Large in all their products.
I have to say the best feature of these tracksuit bottoms was the softness of the material it was super smooth and lightweight on my body. This made these tracksuit bottoms comfortable not only for the gym but for going out and about in daily life too. These could truly be worn anywhere and still look and feel good.
The fabric of these tracksuit bottoms is made out of 92% Cotton and 8% Spandex to ensure a snug fit. For me I thought they fit more like leggings with pockets rather than tracksuit bottoms as they were so tight to the skin. If your looking for a baggy type of tracksuit bottom, these are not what you are looking for, however if you are looking for a body sculpting type of gymwear I would definitely reccommend Born Tough’s products.
The only thing I could pick holes with about this product is this. Litterally, tiny holes appeared all over the seams of these tracksuit bottoms when I was working out in the gym. I dont know if this is because I was wearing a size too small for me or not but it wasnt good to feel the clothes I was wearing tearing as I move. Born Tough has however got a 1 year warranty on products and can hopefully provide me with another pair to make up for this! If you experience any manufacturing defect on any of their items, you can contact Born Tough and return it for a replacement within 1 year of purchase. Although this doesnt cover normal wear and tear, like colour fade etc but it would cover these small seam holes.
I loved the minimalistic design of these tracksuit bottoms. With simple details to shape your legs and a hidden phone pocket on the side. This attention to detail and noticing the importance of technology in modern life goes a long way in showing that the brand cares about what the customer needs.
In this case Quality and Durability kind of go together, although this product feels like a high quality product. It let me down a little with the little holes in the seams straight away with the first use at the gym. The Born Tough logo also fell off the thigh after the first wash which is not ideal. However, I am happy to say that when I have a pair in a bigger size that I will be completely satisfied with this product.
These Tracksuit Bottoms were soft and lightweight, made in a beautiful colour, and perfect for in and out of the gym!
