Ahead of the Olympics, we take a look at some of the most stylish activewear offerings that will have you fighting fit in no time.

Ballet Beautiful

Founded by former New York City Ballet dancer Mary Helen Bowers who also has workout program by the same name, the Ballet Beautiful line is perfect for barre or dance-based workouts. Designed to be comfortable and empowering we can see why the range has garnered a devoted following of celebrities and models.


Brighton-based brand Quantum creates edgy sportswear that will make you want to hit the gym. We love their high-waisted Strap Back leggings which are available in a multitude of different colourways and are the perfect match for their mesh panel crop tops.


Launched by former model Jodhi Meares, THE UPSIDE strives towards a healthy lifestyle by providing practical and stylish offerings that can be worn throughout the day. A clever mix of activewear and streetwear, this is a brand you won’t just be wearing to the gym.

Lucas Hugh

Lucas Hugh’s luxury athleticwear combines technical performance and style. Each piece of the brand’s sportswear has been engineered to support and streamline the body with a mild compression fit. The Rio colour-block leggings (pictured) are formulated to dry quickly and have mesh panels along the inner thigh and knee areas for ventilation.

Olympia Activewear

Olympia Activewear founder Kaili Lickle found herself struggling to find functional and stylish sportswear while studying at university in San Francisco and decided to launch Olympia to fill the void. Designed to be strong and feminine, Olympia pieces are centred around clean-lined silhouettes and a neutral colour palette and the brand now produces a range of loungewear as well.
