The Best Fitness Gear to Keep You Moving This Fall

Read next

Just because the weather is dropping, that doesn’t mean you have to hop off the family fitness train! Not only will it get you out of the house, but you’ll have more energy and feel good, too. From the right weight set to a Yoga mat and even a fitness tracker, we’ve got all the best fitness gear to get you moving. See them all below. 

McKee Performance Wear

Not only will you get uber soft, quality athletic wear from McKee, but you'll be helping give back, too. To start, the brand sells sizes for kids, men and women––all with a new take on sizing. Gone are high numbers that represent bigger sizes. Instead, the company uses its own size chart to avoid the negativity that often comes with clothing sizes. Families will find performance tees, joggers, shorts, sports bras and even tennis and golf skirts in classic colors that match almost everything. In addition, the company has its own McKee Again program, where you can send back gently used McKee products that will be donated to kids in need in exchange for a 25% off coupon. You can find out about how the brand gives back here.
