Donning your favorite workout gear and heading to the gym isn’t always the best look. For some of us women, we head off to get our sweat on looking like we just rolled out of bed or we have no intention of being picked up at the gym. Don’t judge. Not everyone is like that, though. Some people hit the gym or head out in their gym gear looking as flawless as they always do. You probably even know someone like that. It’s annoying, right? How do they manage to look amazing in clothes that are meant to suck up your sweat? They do it, however, and we can do nothing but shake our heads in awe.
Celebrities usually fall into the category of being flawless no matter what, but we've also seen a few train wrecks in gym clothes. It’s a fact; not everyone can pull off that “I sweat, but I’m still beautiful” look. There are a few celebrities, though, the fit ones, the ones who take pride in a good sweat who've been pulling off some pretty flawless looks while wearing workout clothes.
They have amazing bodies, and they don’t mind showing them off. You can probably think of a few who come to mind who you just know look great no matter what. We've dug out a few for your entertainment, so read on to find out who the 15 celebrities are who look incredible in workout clothes.
15 Jenna Dewan-Tatum
With that dancer’s body, it’s hard for Jenna Dewan-Tatum not to look amazing. She has the perfect body for workout clothing, so it makes it easy for her to look incredible in them. She's been keeping busy with her dancing career as well as her role on Supergirl. She’s one girl who proves that workout clothes can be a fashion statement. Between her career and being there for her family, the girl must be exhausted, so maybe running around in workout clothes makes sense. “Definitely, there are lots of days that I am really tired, especially after becoming a new mom. There's nothing more exhausting because physically, mentally, emotionally, it requires you to be on all the time.” She’s definitely a dedicated and driven person, and that’s part of what we love about her. She goes after whatever she wants.
14 Miley Cyrus
Miley Cyrus has never been one to shy away from skimpy or tight-fitting clothing. We love how great she looks here in her gym gear. She’s definitely got an incredible body, and she has no problem flaunting it. Not only does she have great gear, but she has great taste in clothing as well. Love the pigtails! Despite her flawless body, she has issues with perfection, just like all of us women do. “I told my mom, 'I'm not buying another magazine until I can get past this thought of looking like the girl on the cover'. She said, 'Miley, you are the girl on the cover,' and I was, like, 'I know, but I don't feel like that girl every day.' You can't always feel perfect.” It’s true, though; she’s always the great-looking girl on the cover, so she has nothing to worry about.
13 Shay Mitchell
Shay Mitchell is one of the new girls on the block; she hit the scene with her role in Pretty Little Liars. She has a rocking body that's full of curves. There she is going for a run, looking as flawless as if she were getting ready for the red carpet. The bright colors are always such a treat for workout clothes. We love Mitchell and the positive vibe that she's brought to Hollywood. Mitchell has always had her own personal style and doesn’t just stick with one trend; it’s always about feeling good about what you’re wearing. “Personally, I don't really have a set style or look. It's pretty much what I feel like wearing that day, from a floral-print dress and high heels to ripped jeans and army boots.” We’ll pass on the army boots, but the rest sounds just about right.
12 Kate Beckinsale
What a babe, right? Kate Beckinsale has always had an elegantly toned body, and she looks fantastic no matter what. She's beautiful and sexy, the perfect package. We love how she's showing off her toned arms in this photo, and those black tights are to die for. One of the best things about Beckinsale is how down-to-earth she is despite her wealth and success. If you've ever seen her on Instagram, you would've seen just how fun she is. She’s the kind of girl whom you wish you could be friends with. "I can't tell you how many times I've gone to present at the Golden Globes, come home, whipped the dress off, and read to my daughter wearing gazillion-dollar earrings. That's how it goes in my house, and I wouldn't have it any other way.”
11 Jennifer Aniston
Does Jennifer Aniston ever look bad? She's one girl who's proven that you can age and still look sexy. In fact, it seems as if she's defied age completely. The reason that she looks the way that she does is that she's always taken really good care of herself, especially when it comes to fitness. She likes being in many types of clothing, not just workout gear, and we have to admit she looks pretty great here. One of her biggest assets has always been her sexy toned arms. “I'm a bit of a clothes hoarder, admittedly. I try to weed out stuff. My girlfriends come over for cheese and wine and go shopping in my wardrobe. They especially love it when they get stuff with a tag still on.” It would be awesome to get to shop in Aniston’s closet. Sign me up.
10 Jennifer Lopez
It's shocking for a woman of Jennifer Lopez’s age to have the stomach that she does, but all the power to her. She’s amazing and is just another example of how girls can rock at any age. With Lopez’s schedule, we're surprised that she has time to hit the gym, but she definitely looks amazing in those bright workout clothes. She's always been a curvaceous girl, and we're loving it. Between working on her TV show, her music career, and juggling her family, Lopez definitely has her hands full. She's always believed in herself, which is probably why she's made it so far. “I always joke about letting the haters motivate you. Everybody has that in their life -- people who doubt them or make them feel less than they are. It just takes faith and belief in yourself, and you've got to dig deep into that. That has to come from you -- nobody's going to give you that.”
It’s hard for supermodels to not look amazing in workout clothes. They have to always be super fit because of their career. These days, however, Gisele's retired from the world of supermodels, which is quite the feat for someone her age. She has a great body; those toned arms are really showcased well in that top. She's always been an active person, which probably helps her keep her body fit. It would also give her a lot in common with her man. “I've always played sport ever since I was little. I played volleyball, and I believe sport teaches you a lot, such as teamwork, respect, and discipline.” That's probably why she's able to appreciate and respect her husband’s career. The two of them look incredible together because they're both in really good shape.
8 Jessica Biel
Jessica Biel has always had an athletic body right from the beginning of her career. We’ve been able to appreciate her love for sports and stand in awe of her incredibly shaped arms. Here, we get to see her in action, and when her arms are flexed, they're certainly awesome to behold. You go, girl! She has a lot of concerns about aging that we can probably all relate to. Our bodies change, whether we like it or not. “I feel my knees changing -- like, why do I have this pain when I'm running on the treadmill? What's going on with my lower back when I wake up in the morning? I just feel changes. And I'm definitely fearful in a very vain manner about my body aging.” We hear you, girl. The changes going on in our bodies aren't always easy to accept.
7 Britney Spears
Britney Spears hasn’t always looked amazing in workout clothes. She had that period of time when wherever she went, she looked like she was homeless or had just gotten out of bed. Remember when she went into the gas station restroom in her bare feet? We shudder when we think of that time. But these days, Spears has a whole new career and outlook in life. She's looking better than ever and has been rocking some workout gear that shows off her great body. She's been blowing up her Instagram with photos of her workouts, and we love them. She's always struggled with her role as a role model. “I guess it's because I do have a younger audience that, you know, parents worry about the role-model thing. But when I was younger, I looked up to people, but I never wanted to be them. I always had my own identity. I'm an entertainer when I'm on stage, and they need to explain that to their kids. That's not my job to do that.”
6 Charlize Theron
Finally, a celebrity that looks like she uses her workout clothing to actually workout in. She has that gleam of sweat that means she had a damn good workout. She's another actress who's always had a toned body. We love the way her arms look in this outfit. Theron, however, likes to be respected for more than just her body, and we can certainly appreciate that. “And I was victim to that very early in my career, where I would go into auditions, and I'd be wearing a big T-shirt, a big baggy T-shirt, and loose jeans -- you know, to try and show people that there was more to me than just that.” It certainly didn’t affect her career at all since she's been banging out one great movie after another. Theron is a great example of how you can get even more badass the older you get.
5 Cameron Diaz
Cameron Diaz has had big muscles and a six pack long before it was super cool for women to look like that. Some may say that she's too muscular, but we think she looks incredible all the time. This tank top is working really hard to show off those incredible arms that she has. She's always had a really great state of mind when it comes to body image. “I'm very happy with the way I look. I wake up some mornings, catch myself in the bathroom mirror, and go, 'hey girl, you're alright.' But on the other hand, I find the website stuff, and the polls, something completely removed from my own personal life. You can't take anything like that too seriously; otherwise, you'd end up in the loony bin.” We all have to be happy with the bodies that we have. If you aren’t, then work hard to get to where you want to be.
4 Heidi Klum
Heidi Klum has always been an ambitious woman. Not only did she have a career as a supermodel, but she's also been working on her own business ventures over the years. As a supermodel, she's always been aware of having a great body. We can see in this photo that she takes great care of herself as she goes for a run with Kim Kardashian. The two are getting their sweat on, and it’s always best to have a workout partner to keep you motivated. She likes to start her day off in the shower, and that’s how she plans her day out. “I'm a big believer in to-do lists. I think of five things in the shower. I set goals and get my work done, but I have to plan for fun things, too. I'm always thinking about what will make my family happier. So, I set up playdates and trips.”
3 Hilary Duff
Hilary Duff looks pretty cool in a casual atmosphere while wearing workout clothes. We’re a big fan of booty shorts, and she's showing them off perfectly. She has a sweater that will lock in the heat for her workout so she doesn’t get a chill while outside. We love Duff and wish that we saw more of her. She's had such a great career as a singer and actress, but these days, she's been focusing more on her family. It’s not always easy to juggle a career and a family, but many actresses make it work. She has a great love for clothes, and it’s not just workout gear. “I love clothes. I can't control myself. I have a huge fetish for shoes and clothes and makeup. I'm the kind of person who doesn't like to wear things over and over again.”
2 Amanda Seyfried
That bottom is definitely a squat bottom that we can appreciate. She's showing off her best assets in this photo with tights and a tank top. She has a great smile and looks like she can take over the world. She also recently had a baby, so we think she's been looking pretty great since then. We love how her career has grown over the years since Mean Girls. When it comes to being fit, you have to have a balance between exercise and eating well. Regardless of how many actresses will tell you that they eat French fries all the time, it’s just not realistic if you want to keep a fit body. “Well, it's very easy for me to gain weight, but even though I tried not eating for a week when I was really young, I couldn't do it any longer because I liked my food too much.” We hear you, Amanda!
1 Reese Witherspoon
Reese Witherspoon looks fresh-faced and a little badass here. She doesn’t have a super skinny body; she's a girl who's had a few curves in her day, but she always looks amazing. We love the black Rogue shirt she's sporting. She's one busy girl; she has movies, TV shows, and even a book club that she's working on, so fitting in a workout can be difficult. One thing about Witherspoon is she's always had a very positive outlook on life. “I had parents who believed I could do anything -- and I know how that made me feel. I think both my parents, having careers in the medical profession, feel they are helping people on a daily basis, and that was inculcated in me as a value. I had to struggle with giving up the idea of becoming a doctor myself.”
