Los Angeles is one of the biggest health and wellness hubs in the world; there’s a buzzy juice shop on nearly every corner and always a new workout (with a celebrity trainer, natch) popping up. Our editors aren’t immune to the city’s penchant for working out, and between us we have yogis, CrossFitters, Runyon Canyon hikers and everything in between. Each month, we’re sharing the workout gear we absolutely must have. Here, our top fitness picks for October.
"JoyLab is Target's latest activewear line, and it is good. I'm obsessed with the print and the mesh details of these high-waisted leggings. The fabric is thick and compressive, and held up perfectly through a Crubox class. Plus, you can't beat the price!"
—Allie Flinn, Associate Lifestyle Editor
"I feel like I can never own too many pairs of black leggings for the gym. These are a lot more fun thanks to the moto and mesh details, plus the high waist makes me feel a lot more comfortable while working out. They're breathable and give just the right amount of stretch, aka every girl's dream."
—Andrea Navarro, Associate Beauty Editor
"I have never wanted to work out in my life—until I bought this crop top from Outdoor Voices. It's so cute in an understated way and is beyond flattering. I love showing it off (with the matching bottoms) everywhere from the hiking trails to yoga class to the gym."
—Rebecca Iloulian, Marketing Manager, Partnerships & CRM
"I don’t have much to offer in the bust department, but I do enjoy a sports bra that provides a little oomph while securing my A-cups during a HIIT workout. This padded number not only supports my girls but also comes in a cool floral print that pairs adorably with the matching leggings."
