Quirky and outlandish, Richard Simmons definitely had a signature look. For this exercise-friendly Halloween costume you’ll need a bright tank, red-striped hot shorts, tube socks, tennies, a sweatband, and wild hair. (Get the full costume here.) The finishing touch is an upbeat attitude!

If you love glitter and spandex, this Halloween costume idea is for you. Pick from one of Netflix’s Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling (GLOW) characters and go solo, or turn it into a group fitness halloween costume!


4. Fitness Couple

Couples who work out together stay together: show off your buff biceps and thick thighs as a couple this Halloween. Throw on your best athleisure and grab some props like a water bottle or jump rope — just maybe leave the 300 lb. deadlift bar in the gym.

If you or your partner has a bun in the oven, this couples costume is beyond easy to pull together. Mamma only needs an orange and white stripped shirt, and Dad can wear Paulie Bleeker’s track practice get-up of a headband and yellow workout short shorts.

Ok, so this isn’t a “workout” costume exactly, but healthy eating is totally a part of that fit life! Plus, you eat kale so much, why not dress up like it for Halloween?
