The Go-To Gym Outfits of 10 Fitness Tastemakers
Jennifer Bandier, Bandier.com
"When it comes to feeling powerful, there's nothing better than an all black outfit with a pop of color!" says Jennifer Bandier, founder of Bandier, a store packed with super-cool gym clothes. A colorblock Michi tank ($110; bandier.com) pops when paired with a mesh jacket ($235; bandier.com), sleek Koral leggings ($110; bandier.com), and gray knit APL sneakers ($140; bandier.com).
Lacey Stone, Celebrity Trainer
"This specific outfit is perfect to lift weights in because the top (Heroine Sport, $90; carbon38.com) is super breathable and the shoes ($80; store.nike.com) are great for plyometric jumps in between sets," says celebrity trainer Lacey Stone, who's sculpted the bodies of Amanda Seyfried and Kelly Osbourne. Stone layers with the Michi Abyss Bra ($110; carbon38.com) for a mesh-on-mesh look and adds Michi Supernova leggings ($179; carbon38.com) for a slash of color. And those Jabra headphones ($100; jabra.com) provide wireless listening while she lifts.
Sarah Levey, Y7
"You can pretty much always find me in all black," says Sarah Levey, co-founder of Y7—the stylish NYC yoga studio famous for fusing hip-hop and vinyasa. But all black gym clothes are far from boring, thanks to a graphic Y7 tank and two-tone Outdoor Voices leggings ($95; outdoorvoices.com). The right accessories polish off the power look: Illesteva sunglasses ($177; illesteva.com), a S'well water bottle, and Skullcandy headphones ($50; skullcandy.com). (Love the yoga top?

Whitney Tingle, Sakara Life
"I love beautiful, inspirational workout clothes because they motivate me to push myself harder and create the body I feel most comfortable in. The patterns and colors of Mara Hoffman's workout clothes (bra, $118; marahoffman.com; legging, $158; marahoffman.com) are such a work of art; they remind me of the temple my body is," says Whitney Tingle, co-founder of Sakara Life, the organic meal delivery service that celebrates fresh natural ingredients. All-white FRENDS headphones ($150; shopbop.com), a stylish Mara Hoffman water bottle, Reebok sneakers, and Sakara night water ($18 for 4; sakaralife.com) round out a perfect workout.
Danielle Duboise, Sakara Life
"This is my recipe for a butt-kicking workout: Deep hydration with some Sakara beauty water ($24 for 4; sakaralife.com), a sexy Mara Hoffman crop top ($148; marahoffman.com) and a Bliss Lau body chain. It's impossible to not feel amazing," says Danielle Duboise, the other chic half of Sakara Life. Duboise goes full on matchy-matchy by adding coordinated leggings ($158; marahoffman.com), but balances out all that color with black Nike running sneakers ($90; nike.com). Her supergirl uniform is complete with Skullcandy Strum Headphones ($30; skullcandy.com) and classic Ray Ban shades.
Katie Johnson, Carbon38
"I am a sucker for crop tops, and this one from Koral ($75; carbon38.com) is just sheer enough for the cute palm print L'URV bra ($79; carbon38.com) to still have its moment!" says Katie Johnson, co-founder of Carbon38, the curated site for cutting edge fitness wear. Johnson completes the look with a colorblock Michi legging ($179; carbon38.com). Also on her obsession list: a S'well bottle ($45; carbon38.com), Manduka towel ($16; carbon38.com), and Toe Sox ($17; carbon38.com)
Caroline Gogolak, Carbon38
"I'm an avid hiker and love wearing this outfit in Aspen during the summer months," says Carbon38 Co-Founder Caroline Gogolak. The Upside floral leggings ($117; carbon38.com) have compression and an easy drawstring so they don't ride down when I'm trekking uphill. I love showing off the cheetah crop top ($83; carbon38.com), so I pair it with the Olympia atlas tank ($70; carbon38.com), which has deep arm holes. Post hike, I love grabbing lunch in town and will throw on my go-to jacket, The Upside neoprene hoodie ($167; carbon38.com)." Gogolak also hits the trail with her Swell water bottle ($45; carbon38.com).
Payal Kadakia, ClassPass
"As a dancer, I'm drawn to wearing a lot of black, but I also love breathable tanks and sports bras, like my Lululemon Support Tank ($64; lululemon.com) and Fabletics Vaasa Sports Bra ($15.95; fabletics.com)," says ClassPass creator Payal Kadakia. "I can easily layer them under my favorite light and flowy Alternative Apparel Crop Top ($42; alternativeapparel.com) for versatility. One of my go-to pairs of leggings for dance are from Zara Terez ($75-78; zaraterez.com)—they come in bold prints that promote freedom of expression, individuality, and empowerment!" The class master completes the look with a Lululemon gym bag ($128; lululemon.com), Jawbone fitness tracker ($199.99; jawbone.com), and Nike sneakers ($140; store.nike.com).

Tyler Haney, Outdoor Voices
"At Outdoor Voices, we enjoy activity with moderation, ease, humor, and delight," says Tyler Haney, the brand's founder and CEO. So it's no surprise her go-to outfit reflects the laidback color and vibe of the ocean: a spaghetti-strapped sports bra ($55; outdoorvoices.com), blue heathered hoodie ($85; outdoorvoices.com), and sand-colored Spalwart sneaks ($275; outdoorvoices.com). Haney varies between a cropped legging ($80; outdoorvoices.com), and biker short ($70; outdoorvoices.com) depending on where the mood takes her.
Vanessa Packer, modelFIT
"Patterned leggings (Prism Sport, $86; bandier.com) are my fav. They push me to crush my workout and feel stylish while doing so," says Vanessa Packer, co-founder of modelFIT. The bonberi blogger layers a boxy white ADAY crop top ($75; thisisaday.com) over a strappy black sports bra ($55; thisisaday.com) to complete her killer look. Add Skullcandy headphones ($30; skullcandy.com) for tunes, a Corkcicle Vinnebago Canteen ($30; corkcicle.com) for hydration, and Tom Ford shades for style.
