Whether you’re counting down the minutes until your new fitness mirror arrives and need to stock up on some basic weights, or your workout shirts are hanging on by a thread, there’s a good chance you’re ready to test out some of the best new fitness gear for your workouts.

1. Anker Soundcore True Wireless Earbuds

One of the best things about workout earbuds is that many of today’s earphone models aren’t just for one use — they’ll do the trick in any situation, whether you’re running a meeting, or running to the gym.

The Anker Soundcore earbuds are equipped for listening to music and handling all of your calls in between, and can run for seven hours per charge, with a total 40 hours with the charging case. With their IPX7 waterproof rating, they’re a good match for sweaty workouts, as well as spring and summer showers on your run to and from the gym.

Anker gives you four different ear tip sizes here, including extra-small, small, medium and large, which will immediately improve how your earbuds fit, feel and sound when you’re crushing it at the gym.

2. Ten Thousand Durable Tee

When it comes to workout apparel, comfort and performance make a great team, and Ten Thousand’s gear delivers on all fronts.

If you’re looking for a new workout shirt to test out, we’re about 10,000 percent sure you’ll love wearing Ten Thousand’s Durable Tee. Like you probably gathered from its name, it’s undeniably durable, more ready than you’ll ever be for your HIIT class in the morning while giving you a stylish shirt to wear at the same time.

While we’re big fans of Ten Thousand’s workout shorts, its high-performing workout tops are equally impressive and comfortable for lifting, running and recharging with a smoothie in hand afterwards. The Durable tee features a mix of polyester and cotton that can hold up when you’re at your sweatiest, and the tee’s sleek flatlock seam construction means it’ll help prevent chafing when you’re exercising.

3. Under Armour Undeniable Duffel 3.0 Gym Bag

Just like your favorite commuter bag is great for carrying your laptop and other items, a high-quality gym bag should be able to haul everything you need for a successful trip to and from the gym. Under Armour tops our list for easy-to-carry gym duffels for workouts, weekend trips and beyond.

We like this duffel’s sturdy and durable shoulder strap and all of the bag’s storage compartments, including one to keep all your workout clothes, as well as a vented side pocket to keep accessories like sneakers separate from your clean tops and shorts. It even has a water-resistant shell to help protect your stuff on wet springtime commutes. And unlike other duffels, this one can even be washed in your washing machine.

4. Neleus Men’s 2 in 1 Running Short

Amazon is our go-to for affordable workout gear and these shorts are a great example. With a comfortable, not-too-short seven-inch inseam, inner lining and a mesh outer shell, these are top-rated shorts for working out, running, sports and more. The moisture-wicking material keeps you dry while the elastic waistband and drawstring make these easy to slip on and off. A hidden inner pocket is great for stashing your phone, ID and other essentials when you’re on the go.

5. Hylete Apex Light Compression Short

A pair of workout shorts is essential but what you’re wearing under your shorts is equally important. Enter Hylete’s compression shorts. Made from a silky smooth, sweat-wicking material, the Apex Light compression shorts made for a super breathable and ultra-comfortable base layer. The four-way stretch lets you move with a full range of motion, whether you’re cycling, running or lifting. Flatlock seams help prevent chafing and provide more comfort.

These are some of the best fitness gear to invest in.
