It's a universally acknowledged truth that working out is good for us — but half the fun is that it gives us an acceptable reason to wear leggings as pants!

Yeah, whatever you say, Elle.

Have a drawer full of black leggings and want an excuse to mix it up a bit without a lot of commitment (i.e., $$$)? Over 1,000 people have found the perfect pair, and they fit the bill: 90 Degree By Reflex Performance Activewear printed leggings.

These high-quality leggings have plenty of stretch, aren't see-through, come in 33 patterns and colors, and OH DID I FORGET TO MENTION THEY'RE ONLY $16.99??

Printed leggings are fun with a capital F. Why wouldn't you want to show off some style while you get your exercise on? Reviewers say that these leggings actually make them more excited to work out (and that's exactly the kind of motivation I need to get my butt to the gym)!

"These are my go-to workout pants. I am actually excited for my workouts because these fit great, and the print is super fun. They're much more exciting to put on versus another pair of boring black yoga pants. And the print helps me not feel self-conscious about my figure." —JRS

"I love these pants! I bought them in two colors and want more! I am 5'6", and they are the perfect length. I also love the fabric — thick and high-quality — which is perfect for running outside or for gym workouts. The print is vibrant and makes me feel excited to work out. I'd definitely recommend them!" —Amazon Customer

Plus, they're not just for yoga. These leggings are great for a variety of workouts including running, lifting weights, HITT, and of course yoga. And the best part: They don't slide down (because nobody wants to spend their workout pulling up their pants).

"These are so perfect I'm buying more!! I've bought the 90 Degree Reflex leggings and capris in solid color, and the printed leggings have more polyester and are thicker. These don't fall down when I run or lift. I'm 5'0", 135 lbs., and the medium is perfect!" —Venus Lancaster

"I'm so pleased with these leggings. The fabric was MUCH thicker than I anticipated, especially given the price. I'm so glad I took a chance on these. They fit as expected with a nice rise for yoga class. They don't ride up or shift around during my yoga practice. And they're so cute! They look exactly as in the picture. My only complaint is that these leggings don't come in more patterns because I would buy l them all!" —Heather B.

"I love these pants. They are such a great value. They stay up at my waist, which is hard to find in quality activewear. I wear them during my HIIT training, so there is a lot of jumping and squats, and they are NOT SEE-THROUGH!" —Amanda L

They're so good, even personal trainers and yoga instructors rave about them.

"I love love LOVE these pants! These 90 Degrees are my favorite workout pants. I live in them since I’m a personal trainer. They're comfortable, durable, affordable, and flattering. Plus, they've got a great stretch for thick legs!" —Elly Patrick"I love this brand. For the price, I expected something of lesser quality, but I've been purchasing this brand several times now, and it's always been consistent. They don't loosen over time, the print doesn't fade, and they fit as expected. As a yoga teacher, I highly recommend this brand and style of leggings." —PCF

"I ordered these to add a little flair to my gym wardrobe (I always wear black workout leggings), and they are super comfy! They are squat-proof and look very stylish and fun!" —Hawker

"I have been wearing them to the gym for the past six months, and they are great leggings. I don't take special care but just throw them in the washer and dryer, and they have held up just fine. They have not shrunk and do not sag. I'am a curvy woman, and they don't ride down, I have done yoga, spin, and cardio, and they have great stretch to them thanks to the spandex. I strongly recommend getting them." —S. Paul

"These leggings are fantastic! They sit high on the waist to give some tummy control, and they breathe well, so they are a good choice for working out. And the colors are amazing! I wear them when I go to the gym for cardio and weight lifting, so they stretch and sweat very well. I will be buying another pair." —Amazon Customer

Get them from Amazon for $16.99 (available in sizes XS-XL and in 33 patterns and colors).

Now, please excuse me as I go buy one in every pattern so this can be me:
