About Sturdy by design
I joined the gym when I was 17, having been involved in just about every sport at school I needed something else to get involved in. I was naturally very strong and took to weight lifting immediately. After a few years of weight training and 2 children, running took over, mainly for post pregnancy weight loss to begin with but I got quite hooked on the sport. However a few marathons later I was plagued with an ongoing hamstring injury which led me to hanging up my running shoes for good. It was time to return to the gym.
My training was pretty standard. I lifted because I loved it. No other focus or goal. It wasn’t until a friend suggested I tried upping my game and put my love for weight training to good use. She had competed in a Fitness/figure show and urged me to give it a go. I wasn’t keen at first, unsure if I would have the confidence to step on stage in the ‘tiniest’ of bikinis, a pair of heels and strut my stuff in front of a panel of judges and a theatre full of spectators. In the end I agreed, signed up and took a long hard look at my training regime and diet. 8 months later I stepped out on stage for the first time and placed in my first ever event at Pure Elite qualifier in Manchester. 2 second place’s and a third. I was over the moon and hooked instantly. I then went on to win 1st place in the figure and muscle categories at Miami Pro in London and came 1st in the Pure Elite World Finals in the Muscle Model category.
2015, That was my first year of competing……..
Last year I moved into UKBFF Women’s Physique. I won my qualifier at the Midlands championships which led to an invite to the British Finals. I did not place this year but that has only made me more determined to train harder, diet harder and do it all over again this year.
So, why leggings??? Because I live in them. Fact! I love them and these leggings do everything you would want a pair of leggings to do.
They stay put, no matter how much you walk, run, lift. they are literally a second skin. They allow the sweat to evaporate off quickly but most importantly, they look amazing. I love the bold print style and I think you will love them too.

Sturdy by design Paint Swirl Leggings Product Review- R4W Member
These leggings are super comfy, very lightweight. I wore them for a spinning bootcamp session and they did not slip down and passed the squat test (they don’t go see-through when you squat down). The leggings have a really soft feel to them with a wide waistband which has drawstring ties on it and also on the back of the waistband was a hidden pocket which is extremely useful. The print swirl colour leggings are lovely bright colours and everyone at the gym loved them. I would highly recommend these leggings.
