They say that enjoyment is a key factor in determining whether or not we stick to a fitness plan. If it’s not fun, we’ll have a harder time getting our butts to the pilates studio or running trail. The type of exercise activity has a lot to with this, of course, but cute accessories can only help, right?
So, go on. Enjoy your stylish yoga mat while you push through your twentieth chaturanga.
Pretty Water Bottle
Beloved by the chicest celebrities, the simple glass bottles made by bkr come with a silicone sleeve in just about any color you can imagine. Each color is inspired by wistful musings. For example, the color feature here, “dive,” is inspired by, “saltwater in your hair, warm soft sand, a first class ticket to paradise, jumping in—clothing optional.”
Cool, no? And we all know that glass is always a better option than plastic!

Cheerful Yoga Mat
Those of us who wake before the crack of dawn to sneak in a little yoga before the work day can attest that a little brightness can help lift the spirits–even when there’s no sun to salute yet. Free People’s cheerful yoga mats can be that touch of brightness.

We peaceful dumplings have a place in our hearts for ballet. Get in the ballet spirit with this light wrap that will keep your muscles warm and and your limbs limber. This wrap can also be paired with a dress for a cute evening look with a ballet touch. Très chic.

Flattering Sports Bra
A multi-purpose T-shirt bra is a must for any fit vegan beauty. The Luna bra by Moving Comfort provides reliable support without chafing. The wireless cups offer a natural (read: not super flattened) shape. This is one sports bra I wouldn’t mind being seen in.

More than just yoga staples, athletic leggings are also a must for hiking and running in cooler weather. A pair of funky leggings like these ones made by Gaiam are a nice break from your standard black leggings.

A Bag to Carry it All
This reversible vegan leather tote bag is perhaps a bit more stylish than your typical cloth exercise carry-all. Hop from the gym to the office then back on home with all of your essentials in tow.
