Spanx Introduces Active Line For The Gym (PHOTO, POLL)

Just like doing your hair before you go to the salon or cleaning for the cleaning lady, Spanx has introduced the Spanx Active collection. Yes, that's shapewear you sport to the gym.

Brought to our attention by Jezebel, the new line, priced from $68 to $118, includes shorts, pants and tanks that all look positively elliptical-ready.

As far as stretchy gym clothes go, these pieces look alright. But isn't the whole point of going to the gym to get a body that doesn't require Spanx?

And, like Jezebel also points out, fellow gym-goers wearing Spanx could be a tad anxiety-inducing, considering we already get the sense that everyone at the gym is skinnier and fitter than us.

Then again, while we're busy feeling fatter and slower than the girl on treadmill next to us, we may as well slip into some pants that deliver an instant confidence boost. Or something.
