Fall Workout Gear That’ll Make Exercising More Enjoyable

Hit your fitness goals in style this season.


There’s something about buying new workout gear that motivates us to get off the couch and get those extra steps in. Maybe it’s the excitement of wearing a new outfit or knowing the fabric hasn’t soaked in our sweat a million times before. Whatever it is, we’re OK with their magical ability to help improve our mood and motivate us to work out. 

And sometimes our workout wardrobes need a little revamping. Especially during the fall and winter, when rolling up to a yoga class in a breezy tank and biker shorts just won’t cut it (it’s way too cold for that).

During this transitional time, it’s important to have lightweight and functional jackets on hand, and also some longer sleeve options to keep the chill off. Need a not so legitimate reason to shop for new workout clothes? Matching your gear to the colors of the season can add a little pep to your step (although we don’t have the research to back that up — it’s just a feeling we have). So while we won’t judge if you like to sport neon pink prints and summery florals when it’s not hot outside, it feels pretty alluring to rock well-timed colors like caramel browns, olive greens, and dusty mauves.

No matter your reason for indulging in new workout clothes, we’ve done the work for you and selected 21 brand-new items for fall to shop from. From matching sets to fuzzy jackets and printed leggings in fall prints, shop our picks for the best workout gear below.

The Best Fall Workout Clothes

Made to Move Double Strap Sports Bra by CALIA

With adjustable (and super thick straps), this sports bra will keep your chest area snug and secure no matter if you’re doing cardio or stretch exercises.
