Ready to sweat?
TomTom Touch$129.99 1 of 19
TomTom has found a way to stand out in the crowded fitness tracker market with the Touch, the first wearable to measure body composition and all-day heart rate from the wrist. Why does body composition matter? By measuring your body fat and muscle mass percentage, you can get a better understanding of your fitness level and which workouts are the most effective for you.
All of the standard features are here, too, like steps, calories burned and sleep time—plus, you can switch into Sports mode to log workouts and find out how effective that morning walk was compared to yesterday's boot camp. Those with FOMO will appreciate the incoming call and text notifications right to your wrist, easily accessed by swiping on the touchscreen.
Brooks Spartan Pant$75 2 of 19
The Brooks Spartan Pant is perfect for a gym day or a walk around the park. Semi-fitted, but not too snug, the pants are relaxed through the leg and tapered at the ankle, allowing for free range of motion. The zip ankles are especially handy for when it's time to hit the showers.
The Spartan Pant is engineered with Brooks' Drilayer Fabric, which effectively manages your sweat to prevent the pants from hindering your comfort or performance levels throughout your workout.
Booty Belt System$99.99 3 of 19
Behind the silly name is a serious resistance tool intended to lift and firm your backside while recruiting your core muscles to burn off fat. Developed by women's personal trainer and fitness guru Dominic Banks, the portable nature of the resistance band system makes it easy to use at home or the gym, and the deluxe package includes an instructional DVD and plenty of workout ideas.
Be prepared for some serious burn—the Booty Belt can burn up to 200 calories in just 20 minutes.
Pressed by KINDPrice Varies 4 of 19
If you're looking for healthy fueling options to get you through your workout, try stowing a few of KIND's new Pressed bars in your gym bag.
They're the first KIND product to have zero added sugar—the only ingredients you'll find in these bars are fruits, vegetables and chia seeds, with each bar coming in under five ingredients or less.
We're especially big fans of the Mango Apple Chia bar, which, you guessed it, only has mango, apple and chia in it. Each bar also contains two servings of fruit and is gluten-free, so if you're looking for a well-rounded, nutritious snack, you can't go wrong with these.
Stance Fusion Athletic Socks$12-$20 5 of 19
Stance socks come in a number of colors and cuts, but aside from their appealing aesthetics, they are an especially breathable option for anyone who suffers from sweaty feet. All socks are made from a blend of sweat-wicking fibers that will keep your toes nice and dry through any strenuous workout. Specialized mesh panels in the socks wrap from the top of the foot to the arch for breathability, and the brand's Air-Channel Cushioning add a layer of protection while enhancing airflow.
Stance also prides itself on thoughtful design touches; for instance, the left and right sock are made to anatomically match your foot's structure.
Spanx Active Compression Cropped Black Leggings$88 6 of 19
When it comes to super comfortable—but still flattering—workout pants, Spanx probably isn't the first brand to come to mind, but founder Sara Blakely's line of active wear has built a devoted, if under the radar, following. We love the compression cropped black leggings, with Slim-X performance fabric that wicks sweat and smoothes lines.
Thoughtful touches like the center-seam free design (goodbye camel toe!) and double-layer waistband (sayonara muffin top!) make this the ideal pant for active women who also appreciate a good #gymselfie.
Chichi Mesh Panel Bra$55 7 of 19
This fashionable bra is perfect for a weekend yoga session. Not only does the mesh panel neckline add serious style to your everyday workout gear, but the removable pads allow you to adjust based on your own preference for shape and support.
Chichi's bra offers light to medium support and, though we wouldn't go for a hard run in it, the sleek racer back detail and versatility will have it in your rotation this fall.
Under Armour Charged Bandit 2$99.99 8 of 19
When the 2015 Bandit was heavily criticized for its stiffness, Under Armour responded with a soft, comfortable shoe that looks good, too. Though not intended to be a high-end distance shoe, it's a great option for the everyday gym-goer who doesn't put in enough mileage to warrant separate footwear from the bench press to the pavement.
We're especially big fans of the shoe's upper—it's well-designed and snugly secures the foot, while still being flexible. The rubber outsole can take a beating, too, so prepare to take the lead at your next CrossFit class.
Manduka Enlight Lean Bolster$56 9 of 19
The bolster is the perfect gift for yogis on the go. The cushion is light and compact for easy travel, and it also features a 30 percent recycled fiber-fill with a removable mico-fiber cover you can wash.
If you're looking for a yoga cushion that's uber-supportive, you may want to go more heavy-duty, but if you're looking for moderate support, we can't recommend this product enough. Try it out under your back for some heart-opening savasanas.
lululemon All Day Duffel$148-168 10 of 19
The All-Day Duffle is the holy grail of gym bags. It's designed to be a 24-hour bag that can hold everything you need for the gym, work or travel. The abundance of convenient pockets includes a 15-inch laptop pocket, a sweaty unmentionables pocket, a removable shoe/laundry bag and ever-handy outside pockets for easy access to your phone, keys, wallet or water bottle.
Yogis, take note: the bag also comes with stowable mat straps. The bag is available in plain black, white or the reflective fabric shown above; each are durable and easy to wipe off.
21-Oz. Hydro Flask$35.95 11 of 19
The Hydro Flask is one of the pricier water bottles on the market, but for good reason. It keeps your water or sports drink cold for at least 24 hours, and it can also keep hot liquids warm for up to six hours. The condensation-free coating keeps the bottle from slipping out of your hands, even during the sweatiest workouts. Hydro Flask also gives buyers a lifetime warranty and is, of course, BPA-free.
The line comes in a range of sizes from 12 all the way to 64 ounces; we recommend the 21-ounce flask with the sport cap, so you can stay hydrated without being too weighed down.
New Balance Vazee Pace V2$109.99 12 of 19
These New Balance kicks are light and snappy enough to fulfill any fitness needs, especially if you favor cardio over weights and want a shoe that can keep up with a killer HIIT workout.
The breathable mesh upper is snug but not constricting, so it leaves plenty of room for your toes, plus the lightweight cushioning is supportive without slowing you down.
Manduka Flux Legging$98 13 of 19
Manduka's Flux leggings are dancer-inspired and sustainably made. We love the studio to street style—the ties especially are a big win with us—and the built-in media pocket adds functionality. These leggings have a high waist to keep everything tucked in just right and are made from 65 percent recycled material.
The leggings also wick away moisture quickly for those who prefer their yoga sessions served up hot.
Brooks Dash Hoodie$75 14 of 19
Brooks definitely kept the female body in mind when creating the Dash hoodie, which is perfectly soft and loose-fitting in all the right places.
This hoodie can be worn over a sports bra or as a second layer over your favorite gym tank. The cowl neck turns into a hoodie that stays snugly in place on a run, and the thumbholes are perfect for keeping your hands warm but ventilated.
Oakley Next Level Stripe Training Tee$50 15 of 19
The Oakley Next Level Stripe Training Tee checks all the boxes. Much more than just a T-shirt, the garment is made from Oakley's super light Hydrolix fabric. But unlike a lot of moisture-wicking fabric, Hydrolix won't stick to your skin, even with heavy perspiration.
Of equal importance, the Stripe Training Tee just looks awesome, complete with a feathered pattern and a curved hem that will ensure you look especially good while you do those dumbbell flies.
Saucony Athlete Avenger$45 16 of 19
Cooler temps are the perfect motivation for fall running, and the Athlete Avenger sports bra will give you max pavement-pounding support.
We felt unstoppable in this high-impact bra, which fits tight with a racer back construction that locks in all essential goods. The bra also features two separated, shaped cups that add definition and extra support should you want a little more coverage up top.
The elastic band at the bottom of the bra also provides moisture management, so you won't be carrying any extra water weight as you fly through the streets.
lululemon Fly Away Tamer Headband$12 17 of 19
Lululemon's Fly Away Tamer is the perfect headband for the gym, studio, track or even the grocery store. It's made out of Lulu's signature, moisture-wicking Luon fabric and has a four-way stretch that snugly holds your hair without being too tight. It also won't lose its stretch halfway through your workout, which is a big win in our book.
But the real reason we love this headband is on the inside. Lulu uses velvet on the underside instead of rubber or another sticky material, keeping flyaways tucked for good without any pulling or pain.
Manduka Meditation Cushion$68 18 of 19
Discover your inner zen this fall with the help of this cozy meditation cushion. Not only does it provide great support with its buckwheat hull filling, it also promotes proper alignment, specifically in the hips, so you won't lean back or slouch as you lose yourself in your own breath.
The cushion comes with a handle for easy transport, but it's a little heavy, so hauling it around everyday may not be an option. However, if you do most of your meditating at home (or mainly in one place), this cushion could be just what you need to find a new level of calm.
