Need a little motivation for your New Year’s resolution? Stop skipping the gym and start showing off your results in cutting-edge gear from Nike, Under Armour, Spanx and more.
Choose fitted yet non-restricting clothing that allows you to stay focused on your practice. We love the Nike Legend yoga pant’s higher back rise. (No more pausing to pull up your waistband during Downward Dog means smoother Sun Salutations.) Pair with a sweat-wicking tee — made even better by a feminine V-neck — to stay cool and dry during class. Cushioned flip-flops, a slim jacket and a mat-friendly tote get you to and from the studio with style.

Braving winter weather for a run isn’t easy — smart, modern gear is a must. The Under Armour Perfect Workout legging boasts signature HeatGear® fabric that not only wicks away sweat, but also regulates your core temperature. To keep from getting too warm after a few miles, layer an eye-catching hoodie over a sleek tank. Hair-taming headbands and stability-providing running shoes ensure you’re expertly outfitted from head to toe.

Under Armour was founded by former football player, Kevin Plank, who was searching for a workout shirt that would wick sweat away from the skin and support muscles. Today, Under Armour strives to “make all athletes better.” It brings this mission to women’s activewear with tees, workout bras, running shorts, pants and more.
Here are 3 of our favorite women’s UA products:
The Armour Bra®
Through research and feedback from women, the Armour® Bra was developed to fit both band and cup size. So regardless of your size, the result is a revolutionary workout bra with SuperStretch technology for a customized fit, bonded seams to prevent chafing and rubbing, and a Signature Moisture Transport System that wicks sweat away from the body.
UA Hotshot Tee
Boost your workout routine with the Under Armour UA Hotshot tee with HeatGear®, a lightweight fabric that wicks sweat away from your skin and brings it to the surface for cooling. The many color choices and animal-print designs ensure that you’ll look and feel cool.
Great Escape Running Shorts
Under Armour’s Great Escape running shorts were designed by female runners and include a wider waistband than traditional women’s running shorts for a comfortable, more flattering fit.
