Quality gear to make you feel like a million bucks no matter how hard you’re pushing it.
CEP Dynamic+ Run Ultralight Low Socks ($20)
Some compression socks feel as tight as tourniquets. Not these. The Ultralight Lows are just snug enough to reduce swelling, increase circulation, and support muscles and joints.
Adidas Women’s Voyager Jacket ($99)
Made from a surprisingly silky, 90 percent recycled polyester, this 9.8-ounce windbreaker was an impressively strong buffer against the elements on damp, 45-degree days, offering no excuse to stop training.
Coeur Sports Bra ($45)
Designed by veteran Ironman Kebby Holden, this buttery-soft bra has a hidden cleavage pocket and wears perfectly on its own—all the better to show off the retro wraparound stripes and shapely racerback.
TriggerPoint Grid STK Foam Roller ($35)
Look no further than Trigger Point when it comes to quality, compact rollers. The Grid STK’s ridged foam surface replicates a massage therapist’s hands—a godsend for relieving tweaked muscles after Pilates.
Patagonia Lightweight Black Hole 28L Tote ($49)
Two words sum up this bag: tough and simple. Sand, grit, and late-season snow couldn’t penetrate its ripstop nylon, which is treated with a water-repellent finish. True to its name, it swallowed everything.
Fjällräven High Coast Tights ($100)
The 50-50 blend of polyamide and recycled polyester in these leggings works double time, providing a cushy layer next to skin and wicking sweat as you ramp up the intensity.
Tasc Performance Rhythm Skirt ($54)
Comfortable but with a touch of whimsy, this anti-odor, UPF 50 poly-Lycra skirt hides inner compression shorts that add iron support for weary glutes.
