Regular cotton T-shirts and shorts don’t cut it in the gym. Not only do they end up heavy with sweat (reducing your performance and comfort), but they also stink, affecting your fellow gym-goers. So instead of throwing on an old college tee or some cotton leggings, upgrade your gym attire to some high-performance sweat-wicking clothing. It’ll make you feel lighter and more energetic, while also preventing BO. Check out our favorites below, starting at just $4.

Bike shorts might be a white-hot women’s fashion item right now (thanks to the Kardashians), but they’re also a gym wardrobe essential. If you don’t have a good pair, we recommend these because they’re well-made, affordable, and feature handy pockets for your phone and wallet.
