What meaning of workout in this sentence:

I wear jeans with commitment and obsession. I really give them a workout.


A "workout" is, for a person, a session of intense physical activity, usually to increase physical fitness. "I did a 30-minute workout on the treadmill." "I didn't realize shelving books all day would be such a workout." Usages like your example extends the meaning to inanimate objects (a bit of personification).
