Simply the best

I have seven other shorts that I can possibly wear to the gym, but do I? No, only this one.

Core Shorts - Americano

OMG - the best tights! Love that they are 'squat proof' and have the elastic band around the bottom. I went for a size bigger for running as they are slightly more comfy - yes thats possible! They are gorgeous! Thanks team #Burntfit :-)
