What Fitness Editors Really Wear to Work Out

Nike Free Flyknit 4.0

"My all-time favorite sneaker is the Nike Free Flyknit 4.0 ($120; It's low to the ground and lightweight, but still packs a little cushion—making it ideal for fast runs, but still my go-to for CrossFit WODs. The tight-knit upper hugs my foot, keeping me secure during agility drills, hexagonal grooves along the sole make quick changes in direction easy, and it fits like a sock, so it supports without any bulk."
—Jaclyn Emerick, Fitness Director

“I used to do every workout in my running shoes—bad idea. Switching to the Chucks ($50; at the bottom of my closet proved to be a much better choice for theweight room: the soles are stern, not squishy, so they're better suited for heavier weight.”

“Champion sports bras ($25; last forever (I had an earlier style for nine years!) and make me feel totally locked-in. I buy a size smaller than I normally would to get the no-bounce effect I need for high-impact workouts.”

“This jacket ($52; packs up into a small pouch so I can take it with me when I leave for a run and it's looking gloomy outside. I can pull it out easily when it starts to rain, and it keeps me from getting too drenched.”
