Fitness fans, rejoice!
We are all making strides to live more active lifestyles, but whether you opt for high-intensity workouts like circuit training and running, or prefer to stretch it out with the likes of yoga and pilates, your tired trackies and threadbare old concert tops are not fit for purpose.

The brand is known for its ability to expertly combine function with fashion – offering high-performance fitness clothing that wouldn’t look out of place from the boardroom to the bar. The quality designs are made of innovative cuts and fabrics that are flattering as well as moisture-wicking, flexible and will keep you secure and supported.
From 9th June onwards, you can get your hands on some of the lululemon’s bestselling and most covetable styles for less as part of the brand’s Summer Sale, including the Align, Wunder Train, and Energy ranges.
Upgrade your workout, pavement-pounding or stretch-ready apparel with the selection of sports bras, hoodies, leggings and coats – all of which are on offer this summer.
For all the motivation you need to hit the gym, shop our edit of the best of the sale below.
Align Tank: was £45, now £39, lululemon.co.uk
In an array of muted and eye-popping shades, the Align Tank will keep you comfortable and supported throughout your workout, while being able to mix and match with your leggings. It has a soft skin-feel thanks to the brand’s trademarked Nulu fabric that is not only cosy but also breathable, lightweight and sweat-wicking. It should also keep its shape due to the inclusion of Lycra in the construction.
Scuba Oversized 1/2 Zip Hoodie: was £108, now £74, lululemon.co.uk
There’s a reason why this is a hugely popular silhouette for the brand. It’s a cosy style that works equally well for commuting to gym classes as it does for lazy Sunday duvet days. The attractive selection of colourways include warm coral that is ideal for the warmer weather. The hoodie features a handy kangaroo pocket with a hidden sleeve for your valuable possessions, a half zip, thumbholes and best of all, it sits at just the right length. The hemline is not too short but it won’t swamp you either.
lululemon Align™ High-Rise Short 8″: was £48, now £34, lululemon.co.uk
While these shorts are primarily designed for Sun Salutations, we think they would work just as well for festival season with the eye-catching pink hue. With a second-skin feel, they offer all the flexibility you need as you move from pose to pose, and feel buttery soft to the touch. There is even a hidden pocket for the likes of cards or keys.
Energy Bra: was £38, now £2, lululemon.co.uk
lululemon has some of the most hard-working sports bras in the game, particularly if you lean towards the bigger end of the bust spectrum. The Energy Bra has all-day comfort and yet still offers a medium level of support for mid-level intensity workouts like yoga and pilates. The fabric is stretchy, breathable and sweat-wicking to keep you cool, dry and secure throughout.
Scuba HR Jogger: was £108, now £54, lululemon.co.uk
In the last few years, loungewear has formed a core part of our wardrobes so give your timeworn trackies a luxe update with these cosy joggers. Trousers you’ll never want to change out of, they have a soft terry construction and a relaxed fit that slightly tapers at the cuffs for a flattering twist on your casual clothing.
Drivers Coat: was £159, now £69, lululemon.co.uk
If there was one piece of clothing synonymous with British fashion, it’s the humble trench coat and lululemon puts a contemporary twist on the style with its Drivers Coat. The pared-back design is sleek and sophisticated, while packing a performance punch. It’s water-repellent and has a vented back for breathability.
