Are you ready to upgrade your athletic apparel? Remember: just because you’re going to sweat in your workout fit doesn’t mean it has to be boring.

We’ve rounded up a few of our favorite local boutiques and clothing stores in Pittsburgh where you can replace your worn-out (and let’s face it, probably smelly) workout clothes with some new athletic apparel that will help you look your best for when you want to feel your best.

(P.S. – you can wear your new activewear to Made in PGH’s free workout event with SHAPE Training and GNC at Ross Park Mall on March 13th! Sign up today to join the fun.)

Dona Jo

Just in time for spring, Dona Jo has a playful and comfy line of the most stylish tennis apparel and activewear to get you in the mood for some movement. Skirts, skorts, leggings, joggers, even dresses – whatever you’re most comfortable in, they’ve got ‘em! Everything they carry is handmade in Brazil and stitched with care to help you express yourself on the court, in the gym or even just at brunch.

Lane 51

Wexford-based boutique Lane 51 has a line of fun, comfy athletic apparel called Go-Active, and you’re going to want to go right to their website when you find out the best part: every single item is under $50. You can fill up your closet with leggings, joggers, sports bras, and pullovers without breaking the bank, and the quality is on par with some of those national brands that charge twice that for a single pair of leggings.

Moda Pittsburgh

Moda Pittsburgh’s two locations in Shadyside and Lawrenceville carry pieces from the latest collections and designers taking over your Instagram Explore page, including athletic tops and bottoms for both men and women. With brands like Stampd, Adidas Stella McCartney, and Y-3, you can stock up on athletic apparel that’s almost too trendy to sweat in – but feel free to do so anyway!

Square One Athletics

Starting at square one? Try Square One Athletics! According to founder Perry Parker, “Everyone started somewhere,” and if you’re looking to take that first step, do it in activewear that supports your body as you move and helps you feel your best so you can perform. Their latest drop is the Minimal collection, with monochromatic workout essentials like cutoff and long-sleeve tees, compression shorts, and hoodies.

Yoga Jean

Owned by local yoga instructor Paul Jean “PJ” Frontino, Yoga Jean is “a brand fit for everyone and every body, made to cultivate community.” With stunning matching sets made with buttery-soft fabrics in neutrals and dusty pastels, Yoga Jean apparel is comfy and stylish. The site also carries workout essentials like hats, hoodies and yoga mats.
