    5. A pair of high-waisted running shorts made to be so lightweight you'll barely feel them when you're in the middle of a workout — but don't worry, this won't hinder your performance at all. Instead, they will enhance it so your clothes don't get in the way of you crushing your goals.

    6. A twist-front crop top that may just be the Goldilocks of workout tops because it's not too tight and not too loose — it'll fit you just right.

    7. Girlfriend Collective high-rise compression leggings made from recycled water bottles, so you can look good *and* feel great about the activewear you put on your body.

    8. A cropped tank top with a built-in bra great for keeping you in place and comfortable during yoga and Pilates — or even when you're not working out at all.

    9. Spanx high-waisted leggings so great you might climb a mountain *just* to ~shout from the mountain tops~ about how amazing these stretchy, comfortable, no-roll-waistband leggings are.

    10. A zippered running jacket I'm convinced might be the unicorn of workout jackets because it can do it all. Not only is it compressive enough to keep you warm during a cold morning run, but it also has mesh panels to prevent overheating, is sweat-wicking, has thumbholes, *AND* (maybe the coolest feature of them all) has built-in mittens!

    11. A matching sports bra and legging set made to solve the dilemma of what to wear for your workout because you won't have to worry if your outfit is going to match and can instead focus on doing those burpees.

    12. A moisture-wicking V-neck tee that'll keep you cool as a cucumber even through the most intense workouts.

    13. A pair of high-waisted leggings I may already have in my cart because they're cute and come in a lot of colors, so I might as well get a pair for every day of the week.

    14. A longline sports bra everyone will be eyeing during your virtual yoga class — be careful, you may get a lot of messages afterward asking you where you got it from.

    15. Wolven crossover leggings (with pockets), or the LBD of activewear that you'll want to have in your closet forever because you really can't go wrong with this staple style.

    16. A longline sports bra perfect for low-impact classes (like pilates and yoga). Plus, you'll love it so much that you'll want to wear it even when you're not working out.

    17. A pair of seamless bike shorts one BuzzFeed editor swears feel like you're basically wearing nothing, which is one of the best qualities in a piece of workout gear, if you ask me.

    18. A lightweight performance tank perfect for just about any workout but also other occasions too. This versatile top can even be worn swimming or on just your daily adventures. We love a top that can do it all. Oh — and I almost forgot. It has UPF 50+ protection, which makes it great for any outdoor sweat sesh (or swim).

    19. A cropped tank featuring a cutout back so you can prove to the world, once and for all, that you truly are ~bringing sexy back~.

    20. A skort perfect for golf, running, or any other outdoor sport where you want an outfit with a little ~flair~.

    21. A graphic print sports bra you'll be ~v~ excited to show off to all your friends because not only is it really pretty, but it's also made from recycled plastic bottles and spandex, so it's comfortable *and* supportive. You'll be able to hit every pose in your next yoga class (even the really challenging ones, I'm looking at you, crow pose!!).

    22. A textured legging that'll accentuate your favorite ass-et and make you feel good as hell you'll might start singing Lizzo the second you put them on.

    23. A long-sleeved shirt created out of a breathable fabric that also has UPF 50+ in it to protect you from the sun and keep you cool while hiking the Grand Canyon. (Or really any other hike you go on, it doesn't have to be the Grand Canyon.)

    24. Solid leggings beloved by more than 10,000 reviewers, so if you don't take my word for it, maybe take theirs?

    25. An affordable high-impact sports bra to keep your boobs in place no matter how big or small they are.

    26. A muscle V-mesh back tank with a tie on the bottom, meaning you can wear it tied or untied, thus you basically get two shirts for the price of one.

    27. An Outdoor Voices exercise dress you can wear to play tennis, go hiking, or basically any other activity. Dresses can be workout gear, too.

    28. A capri-style legging built specifically with pockets on either side so you can conveniently store your phone and not have to worry about awkwardly carrying it while you run.

    29. A track jacket that's lightweight, adds an extra layer, and is also super easy to tie around your waist when you get too warm when you're out on a walk.

    30. A pair of joggers that are made with the same materials as leggings but the same style as joggers, or in other words, the best of both worlds. Your workout gear will never be the same.

    31. A set of crop tank tops that hit perfectly above high-waisted leggings so you don't have extra fabric bunched up around your stomach.

    32. A pair of seamless leggings with the power to make you feel like a true fitness influencer. The ribbed knit is supportive and made to elongate your legs, so you'll def take a mirror pic (or two) while wearing them.

    33. A high-impact sports bra with the power to keep you feeling so secure and confidant that you won't have to hold your arms across your chest when the instructor says it's time to do high knees.

    34. Zell high-waisted leggings made with moisture-wicking fabric and a no-slip waistband you'll wear for working out just as much as lounging around.
