People who really hang out with me know that I live in work out clothes. Even when I’m not dancing or doing yoga, I wear leggings and sports bra. Going on a plane? Yep. Working from home? Yep. They are just so functional. I’ve researched and tried many different fitness clothing brands, here are 10 labels that I am in love with. Not only do these companies produce high-quality products, their designs are also very eye-catching. Because when I look cute, I feel great, and I am inspired to workout. 😛

#sponsored Just took the dreamiest Barre Flow class at @immersivevangogh exhibit in Toronto. 😍This is an amazing multi-sensory experience that combines art and wellness. We moved in harmony with the music, lights, colours and imageries. Half of the time, I was so mesmerized by the ever changing masterpiece surrounding me that I forgot about the slow burn that was happening in my legs. 🤣Watch my stories to see more of the class and the exhibit. 🌻 . The Barre Flow and Yoga classes at the Immersive Van Gogh Exhibit will run until the end of October. Social Distancing measures are in place. Go check it out while you can. I highly recommend it. . 📸Photo by @maikuwong Side note: This pose was not a part of the class.

Alo Yoga


Alo is a well-known brand in the yoga community. The company is truly all about the active lifestyle. They encourage students to take yoga beyond the studio and into everyday living. With their comfortable clothing, I don’t mind doing a quick stretch while mid-shopping in Costco.  Alo’s style is sleek and classic. They have a wide selection of colors from neutrals to bright hues. Did I mention Alo Yoga ships worldwide for free!

While Lululemon is pricey, its quality is indisputable. I have worn the same pair of Lulu pants for years and they are still in good shape. That is what makes this brand a worthy investment. I love how breathable and stretchy the material is. You feel like it is a part of your skin when you move. Check out the Align collection with lightweight yoga pants that goes up to size 20.

Co-founded by Kate Hudson, Fabletics is an online subscription-based activewear brand. Their clothes are amazingly affordable. As in, you can get 2 pairs of leggings for $24 USD as a new member. The designs are super fun and fashion-forward. Fabletics is bold with colors, prints, cutouts, and mesh elements. My favorite part is that many of their clothes, both pants and sports bras, have pockets.

I own two sets from Fabletics and both of them are beautiful. When I wore them during my Yoga teacher training in India, I got compliments all the time.

Born in my home city Toronto, Titika is a great brand that strives to create activewear pieces that can transition into a meeting at work or a night out. Who doesn’t love versatility? The brand prides itself on its luxury fabric technology that maximizes comfort and performance.

I am recently obsessed with Titika’s dancer collection. It is more over the top, but I adore it. Check out this fierce bodysuit.

Popflex Active

Popflex Active was created by Cassy Ho, my favourite fitness Youtuber. I have been following Cassey’s pilates workouts for years. When she came out with a clothing line, I was so excited. Her aesthetic is just like her personality, feminine and strong. She is always producing creative themes like Constellation and Terrain. Also check out the Popflex accessories. Their yoga mats are made of vegan suede and super dreamy.

If you love to express yourself and make a statement, you need to know about Onzie. This LA female-owned brand is all about providing fashionable yoga wear for women. (They have products for men as well, but ladies are the main audience) Onzie’s pieces are playful and unique. They have a way of making patterns like animal prints and tie-dye work for leggings. The company uses Free-Flow Fabric Technology to create breathable clothes for high performance.

Free People

Free People is more well known as an everyday wear brand, but their underrated fitness wear line also deserves some attention. Millennials loves this brand because it represents individuality and adventurousness. This spirit definitely translates into their yoga and workout clothes as well. From flowy harem pants to comfortable onesies, Free People wants you to be exactly what their name says. Many of their pieces can be worn for both the studio and the street. Check out their Black Diamond leggings, which features figure-flattering seams and squat-proof shape hold.

Sweaty Betty

More and more fitness clothing brands are recognizing the importance of being sustainable. Sweaty Betty is one of them. This London born brand has been around for more than 20 years. Their products are now made with eco-friendly material such as recycled cotton saved from landfills, biodegradable merino wool sourced from traceable farms, and water saving bamboo grown without pesticides. The brand is committed to making more eco-conscious choices at every level of the business. I definitely Stan a green company. Couple their values with their signature bum sculpting leggings, it is hard to not love Sweaty Betty. I haven’t even mentioned the fact that most of their leggings have pockets. Every season, the brand comes out with new trendy colours and patterns. Make sure to sign up for their newsletter to get 15% off your first order.

Girlfriend Collective

Girlfriend Collective is another planet-friendly brand. The company is dedicated to being 100% transparent. You can find detailed information about how the products are made on their website. They use materials such as recycled post-consumer water bottles and recycled fishing nets, things that would otherwise be clogging up landfills and polluting the earth.  Even their packaging is completely recycled and recyclable. So you can wear the apparel knowing that you are doing right by the earth. The brand also champions body inclusivity and supports mothers with their maternity line.

GC is praised for its comfort and support. The pieces are usually in solid colors with classic cuts. Its aesthetic is more modest comparing to some of the other gym wear brands mentioned in this article. Currently on my wish list: GC’s monochromatic sweatsuit.

Outdoor Voices

Outdoor Voices call their followers “Doers” because the brand’s motto is “Doing things is better than not doing things”. By things, OV means whatever gets you up and moving, whether it is yoga, or biking, or running, or dog walking. Which is why their products are made suitable for multi-sports. Check out their unique exercise dress. It is cute and will keep you cool for all sorts of recreational activities. The built-in shorts come with pockets for your cell phone and keys.

Yoga Democracy is made locally in the US. Their goal is to keep water waste to a minimum and keep the brand’s carbon footprint low. The pieces are made with recycled polyester and nylon. They are so soft and comfortable that you would never think that it came from fishing nets.

YD’s designs visually look like works of art. From boho chic floral prints to quirky portraits of Frida Kahlo, Yoga Democracy is wild with imagination. They also play with versatility features such as in this cute 2-way reversible knot tie top. For leggings, you can find a range of length options. From 3” hot yoga booty shorts to 7” biker shorts. They recently brought back bell bottoms! Check out these hippie leggings that flare out at the end. So groovy!

Gym clothing is often solid dark colored and simple, which is fine for the most part. But sometimes I want to feel more inspired, especially when I do dance and yoga. I find that when I wear gym clothes with stylish details, I feel happier and more motivated to reach my fitness goals of the day. I am also loving the athleisure trend that makes it cool to rock workout gear whenever and wherever. It sure makes traveling a lot more comfortable.
