It seems fitness clothing is everywhere these days, with lots of mainstream fashion brands adding performance-focused collections to their lines.

Cases in point: Reitmans introduced its Hyba label last fall, and this spring, Forever 21 joins the fitness club, too. The GapFit collection has been going strong in Gap stores since 2010, and this spring it is intro­ducing revamped fits and new fabrics in its workout pants. Sister brand Active by Old Navy has been working it since 2011.

Other stores that may surprise you with the fact they have fitness wear include Express, Victoria’s Secret, Additionelle, Joe Fresh, Mark’s, Land’s End and Walmart’s Athletics Works line.
