Dare I say I'm in my fitness era. I have been more consistent with my workouts and find I'm actually disappointed when I have to miss my Pilates class instead of my usual response: secretly thrilled I have an excuse to miss class. As you can imagine, this has led me down a rabbit hole of trying tons of workout/activewear brands. Many of them were misses, but six of them were absolute hits. Just because I'm going to a workout class doesn't mean I'm sacrificing style, and I don't play around when it comes to quality.

These six brands check both boxes and then some. Keep scrolling to shop the activewear brands I swear by.


This celebrity-loved activewear/wellness brand is absolutely worth the hype and, if I'm being honest, my personal favorite activewear brand. The quality is unmatched. When you put on an item of clothing from ALO, you can feel that you're wearing some of the best of the best in the game. Plus, its designers are always putting out chic new styles while consistently updating hero styles I love in new colors and fabrics. I can't sing the praises of ALO enough. 


I basically live in my 437 pieces. They're so flattering and made with buttery fabric that feels so good against the skin. I usually reach for the sets when running errands or on a travel day, but its pieces can stand up to a workout for sure. Plus, they come in so many different colors and styles you're bound to find a set or onesie you love.


Who doesn’t love Nike? This brand has been one of my favorite brands since I was in middle school. Nike's workout clothing is designed to enhance your performance and help you get everything you possibly can out of your workout no matter what it is. Plus, its pieces are built to last.

Set Active

This influencer-loved brand has quickly become one of my favorites. I love how fun and colorful its selection is and how well the pieces fit. Set Active is my go-to for Pilates followed by a matcha date with a friend or for a Sunday of running errands or even a travel day.

FP Movement

FP Movement makes the perfect low-intensity-workout and loungewear pieces that you'll want to live in. If yoga is your thing, it has tons of picks I know would be perfect for a yoga class. They have the vibe and essence of Free People, as expected.


I've just recently started wearing Splits59, and I have to admit I'm obsessed. It's rare I find a new activewear brand that really wows me, but my hat is off to Splits59. The price point is very approachable for how high quality it is. Plus, its pieces are stylish enough to wear outside of the gym.
