A good pair of running fitness wear for women sneakers and a sleek sports bra is a workout wardrobe staple—but outfitting yourself head-to-toe in new fitness gear can get pricey. Luckily, there are plenty of options to shop that won’t break the bank.
One tip from our experts: “Choose brands that prioritize functionality, performance and style,” says personal trainer and health coach Massy Arias. “Higher-impact movements like HIIT require clothing that is supportive and has compression, while low-impact activities like yoga demand soft, stretchy fabrics.”
Ahead, our favorite workout wear for women under $100, from budget-friendly lingerie and athletic apparel to high-end activewear you’ll actually want to wear out of the gym.
Fashionably Fit: Discover the Latest Trends in Women’s Fitness Wear
The best workout clothes for women will make you feel both comfortable and confident, whether you’re sweating it out in a boutique fitness class or a 5K. We’re fans of the sleek, street-style aesthetic from female-founded active brand Koral, which produces sexy, slimming styles in sophisticated hues. Plus, its luxe fabrics feel as good as they look, and the sculpting cut is perfect for a spin or barre class.
For a workout that’s all about the legs, arms and core, our experts love this pair of leggings from ASICS, which have seamless details to prevent chafing over long runs. For the feet, opt for the Gel-Kayano 29 (editor-approved for runners with knee pain) or the Gel-Nimbus 25 if you’re planning on doing an endurance race.
