Sweat is her middle name and fitness fashion is her game. Sound like your fitness fanatic friend? Then you’re going to love my list this year boo. Athleisure is the latest fashion trend so show your FitGirl friend or family member that you’re up to speed with these apparel, travel, jewelry and even sweat friendly beauty options.
Bundle Up With Alo Yoga
What a “relief” it is to finally come across a down jacket that doesn’t hide your athletic figure. The Relief Jacket ($148) by Alo Yoga is a must have for those winter walks to the gym or even your next ski trip. The chevron seams are super flattering and the fabric blocking is very slimming. Oh and can we talk about this color? Appropriately named Royalty, this cute coat is totally your highness hot.
Layer Up With Lucy
Strong and cute! The Winter Warrior Long Sleeve ($69) and the Winter Warrior Vest ($108) are a perfect pair ladies. My friends over at Lucy Activewear make fitness fashion not only flattering but functional, so get ready to fall in love. The pockets on the long sleeve are a nice touch and this figure friendly vest is great to layer up with when you’re out for a run (or just out running errands).
Outshine With Obermeyer
Hit the slopes or the streets in the Midtown Soft-Shell Jacket ($179.50) from Obermeyer. This chic outer layer is the best waterproof, tailored, breathable and warm jacket I’ve seen this season. I love all the zip up pockets and sometimes even leave my purse behind thanks to this RAD feature. The faux belt dresses things up and the large lined hood is definitely big hair friendly. Love love love!
Look Lovely With Lululemon
Well hello high neckline! The Run: Swiftly Tech Tank ($48) from lululemon is made for sweat since it’s lightweight and anti-stink, however it’s definitely made for the streets too since it’s so cute. The seamless construction and large armholes make this tank crazy breathable so rock this lovely look during your next road race, in downward dog or while speed shopping (which P.S. is totally legit cardio).
Cuddle Up With C9 At Target
Affordable and super fashionable – trust me, you are not going to want to leave your couch once you slip into this look from C9 by Champion® at Target. I love the camo print on these Women’s French Terry Fitted Pants ($22.99) and the C9 by Champion® Women’s Yoga Top ($29.99) is drapey, cozy and super soft. Hello activewear that can double as loungewear.
Open Up With Onzie
The sexiest yet sweat approved sports bra you’ll ever see is clearly at Onzie. The Chic Bra Top ($48) in this flirty floral print is great under your drapey workout tanks or can easily stand alone. The criss cross back is beyond beautiful but it’s also functional. So whether you’re bouncing around in Zumba or hopping into plank in yoga this maximum support bra top will hold you down. Pun intended.
Make Moves With Mizuno
Ever been on a run that felt more like riding a wave? Then you probably were wearing the Mizuno Waver Rider 18 ($119.99). The comfort level is insane and the black and silver color with a fresh hint of mint is everything ladies. Clocking miles in a fashion forward way just got RAD with these award winning kicks!
Step Out In Six:02
Sometimes you have to dunk on them in your street wear, therefore every FitGirl needs a pair of Nike Dunk Sky High ($119.99) wedge sneakers. The height of a heel meets the comfort of a sneaker and this dark grey option will instantly up your casual looks. However if you want a low cut city chic option then check out the Nike Blazer Low ($89.99). This classic basketball silhouette is RAD too. Both styles available at Six:02.
Nonstop Fun With Nine West
So speaking of wedges, I also think every FitGirl needs and deserves a high black boot . And since comfort is probably her main priority it should be a wedge. I mean who wears jeans when they can wear leggings all the time? But listen, the secret sauce for jazzing up your leggings is in the shoe – which is why I love the Heartset Wedge Boots ($189) at Nine West. Classic, classy and comfy = total win.
Set Out In Sorel
Winter can be rough but a girl still has to make it to the gym, which is why she needs a warm cozy boot to truck it through the snow in. The Sorel Women’s Tofino Boot- Kettle ($149.99) from Sport Chalet are too cute to boot (puns wild) and this gray color is uber chic. The faux fur top is adorable yet functional and the removable molded EVA footbed is a nice touch too. Love these!
Load Things Up With Lolë
When it comes to the perfect gym bag my friends over at Lolë have totally nailed it. The Nina Duffle Bag ($140) is a must have so feel free to get one for yourself too sis. It’s versatile, fabulous and super organized since it comes with a sneaker bag, laptop pocket, yoga compartment, detachable cosmetic bag, detachable fanny pack/crossbody pouch and so much more. In short – it’s perfect!
Snack On It With PackIt
Healthy snacking just got 10X easier thanks to PackIt! It’s 10 hour cooling power makes it hands down the best lunch bag in the land. All you do is pop it in the freezer overnight, load it up with your favorite healthy treats in the morning and pow – you have an iceless cooler. Snag the original lunch bag ($19.99) or the mini lunch bag ($14.99) and get ready to enjoy days of healthy convenient eating hun!
Multitask With Multi Flask
One bottle, six functions – yes please! Hydration will never be the same once you get your lips on the Multi Flask ($39.95). As the bottle that works just as hard as you do – enjoy hot beverages, cold sips, insulated drinks, filtered fun, infused goodness and even mix up your post workout shake all in this one RAD bottle.

Fashion Forward In Fashletics
Strong is beautiful so feel free to be a little flashy in Fashletics®. I love this made in the USA handmade jewelry and your fit friend will too. Each piece is an expression of pride, power and honor so head over to their online store and do some inspirational browsing asap! ($20-$94)
Fierce And Fit With Fitbit
Fitness trackers are at the top of most FitGirls’ holiday list however if you’re trying to decide which one is the best then repeat after me – a Fitbit is it! The Fitbit Flex ($99.95) is stylish, easy to use and affordable ladies, so give the gift of staying fit by helping your special FitGirl friend count her steps, track calories, monitor her sleep and so much more!
Be Bold & Beautiful With Bytten
Speaking of stylish, if your fit friend already has a Fitbit or say a Jawbone, adorn her with a little fitness tracker bling from Bytten. Designed to transform fitness trackers into elegant accessories these beautifully designed slides come in several different metals and flexible plastic options. So pick out a few and seamlessly take that fitness tracker from a workout to a night out! ($20-$90)
Clearer Skin With Clarisonic
She sweats and has the glowing skin to prove it – so up her beauty regimen with the Clarisonic Mia 2 ($149). Available in an array of colors and even a personalization option, this lightweight facial sonic cleansing system is totally gym bag friendly. I love showing my face some love post sweat and your beauty conscious sweaty sistah friend will too!
Fall In Love With Love Bri Products
The perfect mani to a FitGirl is one that is as strong and durable as her biceps are – and after throwing some weights, kettlebells and right hooks in the gym I can say – Love Bri Products is the best nail polish I’ve seen in a very long time. The Gold Rush Holiday Set ($22.50) includes the colors Gold Rush, Nearly Nude and Midnight and the formula is super luxurious since it’s eco friendly.
Flawless Lips With Fresh
Help that FitGirl on your list “look like a beauty and train like a beast” by gifting her with this “fresh” idea – Sugar Tinted Lip Treatment Sunscreen SPF 15 ($22.50-$55.00) from Fresh. Their top selling holiday collection allows you try out their many colors, so if you’re feeling super generous get her that. If not then go for Passion if she’s spicy or Rosé if she’s laid back. Yay healthy kisses!
