Best Workout Clothing Brands

Since COVID-19, many people have picked up new hobbies. While some people have honed the perfect sourdough bread recipe or crafted the ideal tie-dye technique, others have learned to love fitness. Now, with masks and social-distancing rules, people can venture out of their homes to enjoy outdoor exercise or even strict gym usage. And while your worn t-shirts and pajama shorts may have cut it in your living room it may be time to consider an upgrade to your workout outfits. Here are some of our favorite athletic clothing lines that are ideal for people looking to safely practice their quarantine-hobby outside of their home.

For shoppers who value unique styles:

Beach Riot

Beach Riot supplies bra tops, leggings, and shorts that you can feel confident that no one else on your running trail will adorn. With popping prints and unique silhouettes ranging from snakeskin, to palm trees, to tie-dye, Beach Riot offers bright prints to their bra and legging pairings. Best of all, you can get these adorable and functional styles for $78 – $98. Also, the brand even sells masks in some of their fantastic prints so shoppers can be dressed head-to-toe in brilliant patterns.

For shoppers who want guaranteed comfortable:

Champion

Champion may be known for their hoodies, but Champion offers the comfort and stylish taste that we all know and love in athletic-wear. With colorful sports bras, bike shorts, and mesh tanks, Champion Workout caters to all of your exercise needs.  Also, Champion is the perfect shop if you are looking for clothing to wear post-workout; in particular, Champion’s collaboration with MTV has some of our favorite comfy and cute clothing. After the successful spring exercise collection, Champion Workout returns for the fall season with new prints, popping colors, and fresh styles.

For shoppers who prioritize sustainable outfits:

Girlfriend Collective

In a world full of fast-fashion, Girlfriend Collective is a rare find of fashionable, ethical, and moderately priced athleisure. Girlfriend Collective offers buttery soft leggings, sports bras, and bike shorts while supporting ethical and sustainable fashion practices.

If you are looking to practice your shavasana in an outdoor yoga session, Girlfriend Collective will help put your mind at ease because each product is made from recycled materials. For example, the compressive leggings and bras are made from recycled plastic bottles (fun fact: 25 bottles go into each pair of leggings!). Other products, such as their t-shirts, are made from cupro, a fiber that is the waste from cotton industry production. Therefore, their cupro tanks and tees are zero-waste because they are made from other products cotton waste!

Conclusion

As the world eases into a new type of normal, it is important for us all to safely enter this new phase of life. This means taking what we have all learned while in quarantine – whether it be workout routines, recipes, or racial injustices – and applying this knowledge outside of our homes. Get excited about continuing your workout routine by adorning some new athletic-wear (and a mask, of course!) while following CDC guidelines. Be sure to check out these brands and let us know what other athleisure brands you’re loving.

Additionally, Champion will celebrate its hundredth anniversary this year and we will celebrate ours in 2020. Over the past century they have become a fixture in American athletics and we are excited to find new and meaningful ways to work with them to continue to carry on that legacy. With the amount of coverage BMX Freestyle will receive from the media in the lead-up to and during their debut in the Games, we are excited to have the opportunity to showcase the sport with these meaningful partners in an innovative way.”

“We are proud to support the USA Cycling BMX Freestyle National Team and to collaborate with an iconic brand like Levi’s,” said Jon Ram, Group President, Global Activewear, Hanesbrands Inc. “With Champion’s dedication to creating apparel that helps athletes perform at their highest level, while incorporating design for true self-expression on and off the course, we’re excited that both athletes and consumers will benefit from this new partnership.
