Activewear is the crux of any exercise. Tailored, purpose-built clothes will not only have you looking chic and stylish in the gym but also feeling good and performing your best.
By now, we all know the benefits of exercise and how it impacts our mind and body. So much so that almost 13 million Australians aged 15 and over participate in sport or physical activity at least three times a week, according to Sport Australia.
Below, we’ve rounded up 10 luxury activewear labels to have you working out in both comfort and style.
