The best activewear brands to buy if you plan on kicking serious fitness goals in 2024

Catch us in our activewear, 24/7.

Activewear is officially a staple in our wardrobe these days. Long gone are the days of throwing on an oversized t-shirt, a crop top, your only pair of leggings and some sneakers – worn strictly for the gym alone.

These days you can catch us wearing our activewear from Pilates to coffee dates, from the gym to running errands and everywhere in between. 

And activewear has become so commonplace, the ‘athleisure’ trend has taken up residency in almost everybody’s wardrobes. 

Which means we are always on the lookout for the latest activewear brands to shop, so you can work out (and more) in style. 

And if you’re like us and are spending the start of the new year committing to fitness goals and making plans to hit the gym or Pilates classes then you may be on the hunt for some new activewear pieces to add to your collection. 

This doesn’t mean you have to break the bank as there are an array of brands that offer options from bougie to budget to satisfy all of your activewear needs. 

Below, we are taking a look at some of our very favourites.
