From Brie Larson to JLO, shop the styles seen on famous faces
Ever spotted a celebrity casually strolling to or from a workout class sporting a hot pair of gym leggings you just knew you had to have? But no matter how much sleuthing you did and how much enthusiasm you brought to the task, the brand or the exact style remained a mystery? Same here.
That’s why we decided to uncover the best celebrity-approved gym leggings available without you having to dedicate an entire afternoon to Instagram scrolling or web-based detective work.
There’s no denying the importance of good gym leggings. If chosen correctly, they can not only support you through the toughest of sessions but also keep you comfortable and looking cute from start to finish. The best pairs are the ones you forget you’re even wearing and allow you to focus on the task at hand without exposing your undies to those around you or requiring constant readjustment.
With this in mind, you’ll be pleased to know that most of the leggings we discovered on our celeb-heavy search aren’t just lookers. Instead, they are from brands loved by many and are styles that the same celebrities turn to time and again to get their fitness gains, whether those be running, Pilates or boxing based (Halle Berry, we see you).

On the hunt for high-waisted gym leggings, black gym leggings, gym leggings with pockets, funky gym leggings or seamless gym leggings in particular? Not to worry. We’ve found the lot. So, here’s to looking good and getting those goals in these 21 celebrity-approved styles that are in stock and ready to shop.
If there’s one thing we know, it’s that celebrities love Alo. Everyone from Kendall Jenner to Camilla Cabella and Martha Stewart has been spotted in a pair of the brand’s leggings and with a 20% sitewide sale on, now is the chance to get involved.
The celeb-approved brand is not only très trendy with flattering cuts and gorge colourways, but they also provide gym wear that performs.
While Kendall’s exact leggings are selling out quick, these (practically identical) bottoms are from the same Airbrush range and have a yogi-tested fit and no seams for ultimate comfort.
A ‘what would Hailey do?’ approach seems like the best way to pick out gym leggings from now on. No one does workout wear quite like her, and no one does yoga leggings quite like Alo. These beauts are super soft, breathable and have a 4-way stretch.
Yes, Hailey has been seen in more than one pair of Alo leggings and yes, these are sculpting, flat-lock seamed for your comfort and still in stock.
This is the last one of Hailey in Alo, we swear. We love the colour of these leggings, so while they may be sold out, there is another option available. The utility legging is not only available in the dreamy shade but also has four pockets, so you’ll have more than enough storage.
Bella is not far behind Hailey when it comes to killer activewear ensembles. Designed to flatter every shape, your new go-to black bottoms from Alo will ensure you look and feel great.
Plus, if you style them with a cheeky crop, white socks, matching gym trainers and retro sunnies like Bels, you’ll nail athleisure chic. Easy.
Pst! The full-length versions may be all gone, but the capris are still around and perfect for summer.
Kaia Gerber is another model who has opted for Alo when picking out her leggings for the day.
These leggings are known for their super-soft feel and ability to take you straight from your yoga mat to the couch.
Grab the pink pair for something a li’l brighter.

Looking for training inspiration as well as legging inspiration? Why not try one of Brie Larson’s very own workouts once you’ve armed yourself with the silky grey number she has on.
The stylish branded waistband, high shine look and ultra-smooth second-skin fabric are worth it.
A post shared by Eva Longoria Baston (@evalongoria)
If we had to pick between the kettlebell or the outfit, we’d definitely take the latter. But then again, we are suckers for a pair of Girlfriend Collective gym leggings in all their recycled, recyclable and ready-to-perform glory. However, choosing between the look or a video of Eva totally crushing a mini trampoline workout? Can we take both?
A post shared by AJ Odudu (@ajodudu)
We don’t know about the Foxtrot, but we sure are ready to be friends with these lilac leggings. With their compressive fit, supportive waistband, moisture-wicking fabric and hip pockets, there’s little wonder why they remain one of Tory Sport’s most beloved pairs.
Spotted: Reese looking oh-so-good in the Booty Boost Leggings that have taken the Hollywood Hills by storm. They’re all about flattering your bottom whilst still providing the support you need for your sweat sesh – something we can definitely get behind.

It’ll be easy to power through your workout with these bright bottoms on. The orange hue will cheer you on whilst the supportive waistband keeps your pants right where you want them. And once it’s all over, Birkies and socks are all it’ll take to create a cool yet comfy post-gym coffee look.
A post shared by Lucy Hale (@lucyhale)
These Year of Ours leggings are easy to love with their stunning soft green shade, high waistband, stretch-jersey fabric, and flattering v-shaped seams. As is Lucy Hale cuddling her two dogs whilst wearing them.
Ah, yes. We had a feeling the Align Leggings from lululemon would show up at some point. Lori Harvey knows good quality black gym leggings when she sees ’em. Yet to try a pair? They’re known for their butter-soft texture and weightless feel.
A post shared by Brie Larson (@brielarson)
Brie is back and at it again. This time in FP Movement’s cute navy blue Good Karma leggings. Thumbs up if you’re ready to experience their comfy ribbed knit design for yourself.
A post shared by Halle Berry (@halleberry)
At 55, Halle Berry seems to be stronger than ever and is constantly inspiring us on the ‘gram with snaps of her Martial Arts training, plyometric moves and great choice of gym leggings. This pair not only has shine working in their favour but a badass stretch waistband too.
A post shared by Jennifer Lopez (@jlo)
Koral’s Lustrous Leggings are a fave of many a celebrity thanks to their leg-lengthening fit and flattering high-rise waistband, but we knew we had to get involved once Jennifer Lopez was spotted in them. What can we say? JLo can do no wrong in our eyes.
A post shared by AJ Odudu (@ajodudu)
It turns out that when AJ isn’t killing it in the presenting game or dancing up a storm on Strictly, she’s picking out the perfect pair of patterned pants with just the right amount of breathability and stretch for your next gym workout.
A post shared by Nicole Scherzinger (@nicolescherzinger)
While we may not be able to stretch our legs quite like Nicole Scherzinger, we can at least get the leggings she’s in, along with the knowledge that should we ever develop such flexibility, our sweat-wicking, supportive and seamless bottoms will be more than capable of seeing us through the splits. Phew.
If it’s not the queen JLO herself wearing the lilac BB leggings from Stax with their supportive high-performance fabric, it’s Lizzo rocking the cropped khaki pair or Megan Fox working the high waisted black version. Talk about having friends in high places.
Vanessa Hudgens shows us just how good a coordinated exercise outfit can look. It sure beats having to decide what top will go with your dreamy chocolate coloured leggings the morning of. Grab the matching sports bra and long sleeve crop, pull on your new seamless yet supportive pants and you’re all set.
Would it be a proper celebrity-approved gym legging roundup without Nike making an appearance? These babies have gently compressive fabric that is incredibly soft, stretchy, sweat-wicking and passes the squat test.
