Best summer 2017 fitness gear: Leggings you can actually wear in the heat

Some days you just want to wear leggings. (We get it: Tan lines gone wrong, or no time for a leg wax). These striped leggings are so perfect for summer you can actually swim in them – they’re made of swim fabric. Pair them with this triangle bikini top. Bring out the paddle board!

Best summer 2017 fitness gear: Runners that feel like socks

We at Best Health been in love with the Boost runner since its recent launch, and we’re crushing even more now on this summer’s version. The shoe literally hugs the foot (arch and all) and the sock-like structure couldn’t be more comfortable. But this blue fabric has me already thinking about wardrobe looks.

A sports bra that doubles as a top – sign us up! This is what we’ll be wearing to our next Pilates class. This low-impact bra is fashion-forward with its pretty floral design and cut-out paneling design, but the racerback style is what will keep us comfortable in mermaid pose.

Best summer 2017 fitness gear: The strappy tank

Strappy sports bras have been trending for a bit now, and tank tops have been exposing our chic undergarment support. But this pretty purple tank with elastic trim and strappy back is perfect with a basic bra or a webbed one (although it has a built-in shelf bra, so you could go with out, too). It’s also made with dry, sweat-wicking tech fabric.

Summer fitness fashion, sport tech watch

Best summer 2017 fitness gear: A very wearable activity monitor

Most fit trackers are very sporty looking, which is why we like the versatility of this one. You can wear it to work and no one will know that it’s a activity monitor, and they won’t ask you if you’ve met your step goal for the day yet. The sleek design with silicone strap, this watch tracks your steps, activity, calories burned and your sleep and works with the Health Mate app on your phone.
