Memorial Day sales are still just starting up. All the prices and sales listed below are accurate at the time this piece was published. But to keep you posted on all the deals, we'll be updating this piece as often as possible. Happy shopping!
A Quick Language Note
We make deliberate choices about the language we use when it comes to gender. While more brands now carry gender-neutral workout clothes, you’ll still typically see many clothing brands market their products to men or women.
The main difference between most women's and men's clothing is the fit: Men's versions tend to be longer in length and roomier due to physical differences. However, fabrics, quality and comfort should be the same between gender-labeled pairs. We encourage everyone to purchase the products that feel right for them.

If you want to perform your best while you train, recovery is crucial. Having an at-home massage device is one easy way to incorporate recovery in your daily routine. This one made our list of favorite fitness splurges.
"This little device is powerful, and once I push through the initial so-good-it-hurts feeling — and on a seriously sore hamstring, it does hurt — I can feel the tension in my muscles just dissipate," Campbell-Salley says. "It doubles as a warmup tool, and as someone who tends to skip warmups and cooldowns, having this handy makes it easier to get my muscles primed for work. And it's portable! I can take it to the trailhead and use it pre-run or pre-hike to make sure I'm not starting cold."
Pro tip: After a long day, put on your favorite TV show, throw your legs up and enjoy some at-home TLC.
