Best Exercise Clothes for Women Over 50

Our style expert, Linda Cohen, is an FOF fitness fanatic. A runner who practices yoga and weight training, Linda has sweat through more tanks and track pants than she’d like to admit. Here, she reveals the problem-solving workout wear that stands the test of time–and treadmill.

Problem: I need a yoga pant that won’t highlight my lumps and bumps during downward dog.
Solution: The Groove Pant from Lululemon, $98. “My tried-and-true yoga pant. The fabric never stretches and always holds you in even if you’ve gained a little holiday weight. You can wear them all day and feel dressed and not sloppy.”

—————————————————————————————————–

Problem: My fitted t-shirts are hugging my belly fat.
Solution:Underarmour’s Shortsleeve t-shirts ($24.99) have a flattering, looser fit that won’t cling to rolls or bulges. Plus, it keeps it’s shape after many washes and the patented material prevents odor.”

—————————————————————————————————–

Problem: I need a jacket that zips over my sweaty workout wear so I look pulled together when I run to Starbucks.
Solution:Lululemon’s Stride Jacket is sophisticated, cool and, perhaps most importantly, long enough to cover your butt. I wear mine with a t-shirt and jeans when I travel. The black stretch fabric never fades.”

—————————————————————————————————–

Problem: I need workout pants that are comfortable, but aren’t ratty college sweatpants.
Solution: “Nike has designed great fits for three different body types.The BE BOLD pant ($60) has a slim cut and a low rise if you’re ready to flaunt that toned bod. The BE STRONG pant ($60) is relaxed to the knee to balance out your hips and the mid-rise helps shape your butt and prevent ‘muffin top.’ The BE TRUE pant ($60) has a looser fit but is still flattering and slimming–never sloppy.”

—————————————————————————————————–

Problem: I want to run with abandon, but my flapping underarms make me want to run and hide.
Solution:The Athleta Long Sleeve Wickit Workit T ($44) keeps your arms covered and cool with breathable, wicking fabric in five pretty colors.”

—————————————————————————————————–

Problem: I need workout clothes that hold up to wear and wash but don’t cost a fortune.
Solution: “Workout clothes do take a beating, so there is value in spending a bit more on items that will last. Gap Body has a wonderful line at a fair price–the quality is good and the fabric doesn’t fade. I’ve also bought the Champion products at Target which are lighter weight and fit well. Pants are just $19.99 and they have plus sizes up to 3X. My one suggestion: Wash them in cold water or they will fade. Finally, the accessories at Old Navy are bright fun and cheap. Love this Crossbody workout bag for $12.50!”

—————————————————————————————————–

Problem: I need need body-shaping sneakers that don’t look like orthopedic old-lady shoes.
Solution: “I just started wearing Reebok’s Easy Tone ($79.98) sneakers to the gym in October, and I feel a difference. They’re lightweight, comfortable, and they’re helping me tone my thighs, calves and butt. It is like having twice the workout. I recommend trying them on in the store because they seem to run a bit small.”

    I would love any of them. They are really nice

  • debbie

    I would love to see some workout wear for petites that are not tiny tiny! I’m a 10p and workout wear is impossible to find! The Pants are always dragging on the ground. So I buy less flattering styles. Any suggestions?

  • Irishstar

    I would love any of the workout attire,but really appreciated the inclusion of the reasonably priced ones too. the quote at the beginning was a thought provoker….I think its true that I might be a little more inspired to keep up with an exercise regime if I felt that I wouldn’t scare small children if they saw me!

    I love workout apparel. I used to buy just Nike because they have the cool swoosh. Now I go for fit and comfort. Name is taking a back seat to functionality and inspiration. Uncomfortable or poor fitting workout apparel will find itself on the clearance rack. Working out is essential over 50 and comfort is the name of the game.

    I’d like to see some type of cami with built-in bra that I can use for working out. Do you have any suggestions?
