Los Angeles is one of the biggest health and wellness hubs in the world; there’s a buzzy juice shop on nearly every corner and always a new workout (with a celebrity trainer, natch) popping up. Our editors aren’t immune to the city’s penchant for working out, and between us we have yogis, CrossFitters, Runyon Canyon hikers and everything in between. Each month, we’re sharing the workout gear we absolutely must have. Here, our top fitness picks for December.
"A simple, matching set is my workout-wear go-to, but I really need to step up my game with more colorful pairings. I love the offerings by this cool-girl brand Touche La. I'll start with a pretty sky blue piece before working my way up-—eek—to the punchy red!" —Lauren Black, Content Analyst
"I've been into throwing on windbreakers over my workout ensemble after the gym and this rosey color. It's cool, sporty and functional." —Amy Lee, Fashion Editor
"I've been wearing these leggings since high school and they have never failed me. Sometimes you just need a great (affordable) pair of comfy, cotton leggings." —Rebecca Iloulian, Marketing Manager, Partnerships And CRM
"Few workout leggings are as comfortable as the range of styles I have from Lululemon. I’m adding this nocturnal teal pair to my lineup for a skosh of color." —Laura Lajiness, Senior Fashion Editor
"These blocks have been gamechangers for me since I moved into my new apartment and haven’t gotten back into a regular workout schedule. Now I practice yoga from the comfort of my own studio, and it sometimes feels like I’m in class with the added props." —Samantha McDonald, News Editor
"I'm obsessed with the K-deer striped leggings. Part of the proceeds from each pair goes to charity, which makes them the perfect thing to purchase this holiday season, guilt-free." —Erin Bunch, Lifestyle Contributor
"I haven't exercised in months, but maybe I'd have a change of heart about it if I had this adorable, blush pink Nikes." —Kristin Mahler, Graphic Designer
