In Need of Fitness Motivation? Walmart's New Activewear Line Redefines Working Hard and Looking… – POPSUGAR


Bursting onto the fashion and fitness scene with bold vibrancy, Walmart’s new activewear line, Love & Sports, isn’t your typical athleisure brand. The passion project of a celebrity fitness instructor and a fashion designer (who also happen to be a real-life couple!), this collection champions body positivity and inclusivity. Through the use of bright colors, on-trend styles, and high-quality materials, each piece is designed to empower and inspire you.
When creating the line, founders Stacey Griffith and Michelle Smith wanted to embody the rush of endorphins you feel when you’re falling in love or crushing a challenging workout. The result is a high-energy, high-performance collection of stylish pieces you can easily mix and match.
With the combined résumés of this power duo, it’s no wonder their collection is so on point. In addition to being a well-known fitness instructor and major player in the fitness industry, Griffith is also a bestselling author. Smith, on the other hand, lives and breathes style — she launched an eponymous contemporary fashion brand and has been commissioned to create high-profile dresses for clients around the world.
Whether you’re in the gym, on the field, by the pool, or walking the dog, Love & Sports is filled with feel-good clothing at feel-good prices and sizing. With pieces ranging from $12-$42 in sizes XS-XXXL, there’s something for everyone — which is exactly the idea. Ahead, check out some of our favorite pieces, and get ready to feel motivated.
Highlighter yellow deserves to be shown off. Wear it to the gym, and you’ll pop in a sea of neutrals. Plus, this design ($16) offers excellent compression to support you during high-intensity workouts.
Jazz up your usual uniform by swapping plain black leggings for a pair with a little more personality. This fun pair ($24) is made with a comfy stretch fabric perfect for yoga or studio practice.
Complete your workout wardrobe with this high-shine top layer ($38) that’ll instantly take your look from gym-wear to streetwear. It comes in four colors so you can choose one that best matches your vibe.
This mood-boosting bra ($16) features breathable side panels, a soft band, and a racerback for extra airflow and mobility. It’s perfect for shining in your yoga, barre, or Pilates class.
These sporty leggings ($24) are the definition of cool. From the contrasting side stripe to the logo drawstrings, their trendy features allow for major versatility. Consider them your more-polished version of sweatpants.
This v-neck tank ($18) is about to become your new favorite basic. The copped fit is not only great for the gym but also in your everyday routine. Pair it with relaxed jeans and sneakers for an easy, effortless outfit.
With a curve-hugging fit, these stretchy shorts ($16) are great for any kind of movement. Whether you’re running, biking, or hitting the fitness studio, try mixing and matching with the above tank for an electric combo.
This adorable romper ($28) can do it all. Swim cover-up: check. Comfy lounge look: check. Pajamas: check. It’s a one-and-done outfit that’s way too tempting (and multifunctional) to pass up.
You can never have too many T-shirts — especially when they’re this soft and effortless. From working out to hanging out, you can’t go wrong with this simple logo tee ($16).
While perfect for running, you can do way more than that in these classic athletic shorts ($18). They’ve got two pockets for stashing your stuff as well as a built-in panty for keeping you covered and comfortable no matter what your day has in store.
A convenient throw-on-and-go outfit, this casual dress ($20) is the perfect solution when you’re not sure what to wear. Bonus: it looks just as good with sneakers as it does with platform sandals.
A terry-cloth hoodie like this one ($24) is perfect for balmy summer nights, beachside strolls, and even the overly air-conditioned indoors. Lighter than a typical sweatshirt, it’s just the right amount of cozy.
A terry-cloth hoodie is one thing, but a matching terry-cloth set takes things to a whole new level. These shorts ($16) are so cute and have a charming retro look and feel.
Stylish enough to be worn as a bodysuit, this flattering swimsuit ($26) has so much summer potential. The scoop-back design makes it especially striking.
Another cover-up that’s not limited to the pool or beach, this romper ($28) can easily be accessorized for a more dressed-up feel. Try styling it with strappy heels, gold hoop earrings, and a neutral oversize blazer. You’ll be both incredibly comfy and seriously chic.
