    You don't even need to stretch before buying.

Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A fleece quarter-zip neckline hoodie with "added breathability" for when those workouts start to heat up. Front zipper pockets keep any valuable from spilling out during those cardio sessions.

    Target

    Layering is just as important for your workout gear as it is for the rest of your wardrobe, especially for those early morning outdoor activities when the temps are still chill.

    Get it from Target for $38 (available in sizes S-XXL and 4 colors).

    2. A pair of Hanes jersey shorts made from 100% cotton and so soft and comfortable that they might become your go-to hanging around-the-house shorts (as long as they're not too sweaty).

    Target

    These mid-rise, 7-inch inseam shorts hit right above the knee and feature two simple side-pockets for the trio of wallet, keys, phone or your hands if you don't know what to do with them.

    Get it from Target for $6.99 (available in sizes S-4XL and five colors).

    3. A pair of ankle-length Champion C9 tech fleece joggers with a slightly looser fit made with moisture wicking fabrics and an interior pocket for keeping whatever you need hidden to stay hidden.

    Target

    Promising Review: "I'm a swim instructor doing 20-hour weeks in a chlorinated pool. Changing afterward leaves me damp, but these joggers keep me warm and dry. I wear this with the C9 Champion- Men's Tech Fleece Full Zip. Extraordinarily, I've left work before (damp of course) in 20-degree weather with moderate snow and brushed off my car without feeling cold. Very impressive for a lightweight jogger. Cat hair magnet though." —Sunny

    Get it from Target for $29.99 (available in sizes S–XXL and two colors).

    4. A Hanes crewneck muscle T-shirt for when short-sleeves are too much of a hindrance to your workout. Fast-drying fabric will keep you cool and a tagless label will keep your neck completely comfortable.

    Target

    Promising Review: "Better quality than any other high-end sports brand. I waited to review until I wore and washed a few times. The items do not shrink and look as good as new even after wearing and washing. They are true to size and the perfect length. I’m 6-feet and 165 pounds. They hit just below the waistband so if layered under a hoodie, they don’t stick out too far. Perfect for the gym!!! Wicks moisture amazingly well." —Ryan

    Get it from Target for $7.99+ (available in S–sizes 2XL and three colors).

    5. A streamlined, moisture-wicking, quick-drying quarter-zip pullover featuring a high neckline that trades pockets for debatably utilitarian thumbholes. Your sleeves won't be going anywhere, that's for sure.

    Target

    Promising Review: "Nice lightweight pullover for men. My husband loves it. Product did run a little larger than expected, but not too big to return for the size down. Color is true to picture, the zipper is sturdy and added reflective strips are a nice touch for when out at night." —Shopper345

    Get it from Target for $30 (available in sizes S-XXL and four colors).

    6. A pair of cold weather tights that joggers and runners will appreciate for its moisture-wicking, odor-resistance, and flat seam construction that creates a smoother and more comfortable fit.

    Target

    You can throw a pair of shorts or joggers over these tights and not have to worry about any unseemly pilling caused by the friction of the layers. Too bad you can't say that about your sweaters.

    Get it from Target for $24 (available in sizes S-XXL and four colors).

    7. A pair of soft touch shorts with a relaxed fit for a little extra comfort and a 9-inch inseam for giving those quads a little extra coverage.

    Target

    Promising Review: "Incredibly soft and comfortable. You wouldn't believe these aren't made of cotton. It is a little heavier, but only marginally so. Two side pockets that aren't the deepest, but aren't too shallow either. The back pocket with a zipper is a plus. I would definitely recommend these shorts." —HKim

    Get it from Target for $22.99 (available in sizes S–XXL and three colors).

    8. A short-sleeve soft gym T-shirt made from 43% recycled polyester that does all that good moisture-wicking and quick-drying stuff that any old college or concert tee simply can't do.

    Target

    Promising Review: "I am 5-foot-10 at about 195 lb athletic build, and the shirts fit me perfectly (size medium)! The material of the shirts feel very nice and soft, it's a little thicker, just a little, compared to other dry-fit T-shirts, and the shirt is nice and form-fitting (not tight, but not loose, moves nicely with you). Also, I like the little bit of extra length added to the shirt with the scalloped design at the hem. Your shirt won't ride up and expose anything while you work out or stretch." —Nsworkout

    Get it from Target for $18 (available in sizes S-XXXL and nine colors).

    9. A water-repellent packable jacket that easily stores in your gym bag for those times when you might need an extra layer. Inner and out pockets also double your potential storage space.

    Target

    Promising Review: "I actually got this for my fiancé before we went on a mini weekend trip, it’s perfect if you’re looking for something very lightweight, he just wore a T-shirt under it and it was perfect for the weekend!" —FrankieJ

    Get it from Target for $34 (available in sizes S-XXL and seven colors).

    10. A pair of train shorts for some of those more high-intensity workouts from cardio to weight-training. And they come in camo and washed colorways for a little extra flair while feeling the burn.

    Target

    Like any good piece of workout wear, these mid-rise, 9-inch inseam shorts with side pockets are constructed from moisture-wicking, quick-drying, and odor-resistant fabric.

    Get it from Target for $18 (available in sizes S-XL and five colors).

    11. A pair of lightweight fabric soft gym pants that want you to know that they aren't sweat pants. It's toally OK if you sweat in them though, especially during a Pilates or yoga workout, because they're moisture-wicking too.

    Target

    Promising Review: "My son received a pair of these for Christmas. He liked them so much, he asked me to order him two more pairs." —Diana

    Get it from Target for $30 (available in sizes S-XXL and five colors).

    12. A fleece full-zip, hooded sweatshirt which may tempt you into wearing it as your everyday, go-to hoodie. Try to resist and save this one for your workouts.

    Target

    Promising Review: "This is a fantastically crafted hoodie. It has a warmth and softness to it that can't be beaten. Note this hoodie is not super light so if you're looking for more of a windbreaker type of jacket this is not for you. Incredibly comfortable. Like settling into the third year of marriage." —DigitOwl
    Get it from Target for $24.99 (available in sizes S-2XL and four colors).

    13. A pair of fitted three-quarter tights with a mesh panel located at the back of the knee for some added ventilation at the joints. Also ideal for showing off a little ankle.

    Target

    Promising Review: "These tights fit great and I love the camo look! They have been perfect for just a little more coverage during workouts and providing a little extra compression. I would buy them again!" —Ctrudell

    Get it from Target for $20 (available in S-XXL sizes and five colors).

    14. A super simple, lightweight Hanes crew neck long-sleeve T-shirt sporting a UPF rating of 50+ for protection against harmful UV rays during outdoor workouts. Just don't forget the sweat-free sport sunscreen.

    Target

    Promising Review: "Great long sleeve shirt! Perfect shirt for hot weather. Protects against the sun and keeps you cool. Sizing is spot on. Will be buying more colors." —Supra

    Get it from Target for $9.89 (available in sizes S-3XL and nine colors).

    15. A soft gym hoodie sweatshirt with a little extra stretch (thanks to 5% spandex fabric) that sits right below the waist but takes care of all your moisture wicking needs to the top of your head.

    Target

    Promising Review: "It has a great fit and hang. It feels great. It also has two huge interior pockets (great idea!). The exterior pockets have nice zippers. They're not very deep, but the interior pockets (no zippers) make up for whatever space you might need. The jacket is lightweight, and as with their whole line, super soft, with a nice stretch. It looks good from all angles. The back hangs in a very flattering way." —Vegasman

    Get it from Target for $32 (available in sizes S-XXL and four colors).

    16. A three-pack of Hanes "Premium Performance Power Cool" crew socks with smooth seams that won't dig into your sneakers, some solid arch support, and breathable vent panels to "keep your feet dry."

    Target

    You know your work socks can't double as your workout socks. That's because they aren't made with "X-Temp technology" that "adapts to your body temperature and activity to help keep you comfortable."

    Get it from Target for $9.49 (available in sizes 6-12 and two color ranges).

    17. A pair of stretchy woven shorts, that are admittedly a little shorter, but whose side splits give you some smoother movement and "greater ranger of motion" during your workout, no matter the intensity.

    Target

    Promising Review: "These are great. I especially like the zippered pockets. They are just the right length and are really comfortable for all-day wear. I recently wore them to one of the large theme parks in Orlando. They were very comfortable and kept everything secure. I will buy some more soon. My favorite part about them is that they are not too long. I was really getting tired of all the shorts for guys that go down to the knees. Very unnecessary." —Retrolover

    Get it from Target for $24 (available in sizes S-XXL and eight colors).

    18. A classic pair of C9 Champion fleece sweatpants which are the activewear equivalent of a medicine ball. We're talking an old school 80/20 cotton/poly blend that would probably refer to moisture-wicking fabrics as "fancy pants." But boy do they feel warm.

    Target

    Promising Review: "Love these pants, very comfortable, warm, yet stay cool also. A little long for me, but not overly so. I’m about 5-foot-11, 190 lbs. I like them so much I own four pairs." —Bruceinkc

    Get it from Target for $19.99 (available in sizes S-XXL and three colors).

    19. A sleeveless performance T-shirt, constructed from 92% recycled polyester and 8% spandex, that will stretch accordingly with your workout but won't stretch your budget.

    Target

    Promising Review: "This sleeveless T-shirt has really nice fabric, way better than what most other brands carry for a similar price. It's very soft and breathable, only thing that would make it better are ventilation holes in certain areas to improve air flow. The fit on this T-shirt is a little odd though, there's zero taper from chest to bottom hem so it's quite wide throughout, which might not be an issue if you have a wide stomach, but if your waist is on the small side, it looks a bit baggy. Still is a comfortable sleeveless T-shirt though, and sizing in the chest seems fairly true to size, maybe slightly big but not enough to size down unless you're in between sizes. Length is also a bit long, but I like that as I'm on the taller side. Overall is great value, but the design could be slightly improved for men with athletic builds. Tank tops(with scoop neck) made of the same fabric and a slightly more athletic cut would be excellent as well." —Eric

    Get it from Target for $12 (available in sizes S-XXL and 10 colors).

    20. A pair of easy, breezy Hanes long mesh shorts which, thanks to sewn-in mesh liner, are just as comfortable on the basketball court as they are on the couch.

    Target

    Promising Review: "As advertised — mesh shorts, polyester, great, deep pockets, colors match my expectations. Fit is true to size. Delivery came early. I haven't worn them out yet, but they're exactly what I expected." —BD

    Get it from Target for $9.99 (available in sizes S-2XL and five colors).

    21. A pair of full-length fitted tights that don't leave much to the imagination, especially what type of phone you've got tucked into that handy side pocket.

    Target

    Promising Review: "Perfect fit, perfect material, perfect stretch without losing form fit. The pocket is just the right size too, my phone fits without any extra room to move around. Definitely worth ordering a few." — Michael C
    Get it from Target for $22 (available in sizes S-XXL and five colors).

    22. A short-sleeve performance T-shirt to remind you why all those cotton tees in your dresser are sweat-soakers ideally meant for hanging out, not hanging from the chin-up bar.

    Target

    This isn't your ordinary T-shirt, what with its flat seams, stretchy moisture-wicking and quick-drying fabric, and odor-resistant treatment, but it sure is priced like one.

    Get it from Target for $9.60+ (available in sizes S-XXL and 10 colors).

    23. A three-pack of Hanes "Comfort Flex Fit" long leg boxer briefs with plenty of breathing room thanks to ultra-lightweight mesh fabric and a "specially constructed pouch" that provides a roomy but still supportive fit.

    Target

    Promising Review: "These are true to size. Very comfortable. The extra length is great especially for work to ensure they’re not riding up when you’re moving around and working all day." —Bellabee

    Get it from Target for $16.79+ (available in sizes S-2XL and four color ranges).

    24. A classic-looking, soft crew neck sweatshirt that's made of modern-day stretchy and anti-sweaty materials and will look totally on point in any yoga or pilates class.

    Target

    Promising Review: "Fabric is soft and very expensive looking. Easy silhouette with a nice twist of the longer hem in back. Modern fit. The neck is normal on this one (most other All In Motion tops have super wide necks). I bought the blue-grey and will pick up more colors. Want to check out the hoodie and bottoms in matching fabric." —Peanut28204

    Get it from Target for $28 (available in sizes S–XXL and four colors).

    25. A versatile pair of jogger pants which can handle just about any workout you throw at them, even if that workout is walking the dog or taking out the trash.

    Target

    OK, if you made it this far you know the score: secure back zip pocket, two side pockets, lightweight, stretchy, quick-drying and moisture-wicking fabric. Also, these joggers are 100% polyester, which might be a deal-maker or deal-breaker.

    Get it from Target for $20 (available in sizes S–XXL and five colors).

    Now get out there in your fresh new gear and start working up a sweat (no matter the workout).
