You can buy practically anything on Amazon. In fact, I think if I were to take a poll right now and ask all of our readers out there what's the craziest or weirdest thing they've bought on Amazon, I'd probably get some very interesting responses. But while you can buy some odd things on the site, you can also buy the basics and essentials, of course, and get it to your front door in just a day or two (depending on the product). And that's why billions of people shop there, right?
One department where Amazon really comes in handy? Fitness and activewear. You can buy all the gear needed for a home gym, plus everything you'll want to wear for workouts in said home gym.
The thing about the retailer, though, is that there are hundreds of thousands of options on the site. Want a pair of bike shorts? Here are seven pages of results for you. It can be overwhelming to shop the whole site. To help, we've compiled a list of the best activewear brands on Amazon below. Did we miss any? Send us a DM at @thethirty.
1. Amazon Basics
Let's start with Amazon's in-house clothing brand that features all the essentials (hence the name!). You'll find all the workout gear you'll need, from sculpting leggings to performance outerwear in a variety of sizes. In addition to activewear, Amazon Essentials also has some great basics and shoes, too.

I first discovered Baleaf when I was doing research for a bike shorts story—they're bike shorts have over 70,000 ratings and 4.5 out of 5 stars! The brand also has some well-reviewed activewear for all different types of workouts, from yoga to running.
The cool thing about this piece is it has UPF 50+ and UV protection, which is great for outdoor workouts.
Founded in 1919, Champion is such a classic athletic brand. So it really needs no introduction, but if you're not familiar, it offers some durable and trusted basics for both workouts and lounging. It's so helpful that you can shop it on Amazon, too.
You can't go wrong with a classic hoodie from Champion.
Colorfulkoala has some dang good leggings. They're comfortable, stretchy, soft, and provide tons of support. They come in a variety of inseams, which is perfect for both short and tall people alike. Plus, if you love patterned leggings, you need to be introduced to this brand.

6. Crz Yoga
CRZ Yoga has just about the softest workout leggings ever. Its Brushed Naked Feeling leggings have stellar reviews, with many people saying it's just as good as the pricier brands. The line also features sports bras, tank tops, and shorts—all equally as comfy as the best-selling leggings.
These feature a seamless waistband and flatlock construction, which equals no chafing.
Hanes is another classic brand—if I'd have to guess, I think a huge majority of people have owned something Hanes at least once in their life. You can shop the brand on Amazon, which includes its budget-friendly selection of activewear.
For your intense, high-impact workouts, try this ultra-supportive sports bra. It also has a breathable mesh layer to keep you cool.
Lemedy is another brand I discovered while doing research for a story—in this instance, it was sports bras. The brand's sports bras have crazy-good ratings, and are a bestseller with THE/THIRTY readers. If you're looking for a sports bra that offers solid support, but is comfortable to wear all day long, shop this line.
With a built-in bra, this tank is so easy and seamless.
Ododos's leggings and other workout bottoms are so stretchy and feel like second skin, but don't worry, they pass the squat test. The brand also has sports bras and workout accessories, like a belt bag.
