Three Cheers for This Red, White and Blue Fitness Gear

Just like that, the 4th of July is here again. In other words, it’s time to pull out everything in your closet that fits the bill for celebrating this holiday — all things red, white and blue! And we’re not just talking about that flowy, pinstriped dress or that fitted muscle T that you plan on wearing during the festivities. We’re also talking about the patriotic attire you plan on wearing in your fitness classes. After all, what better way to celebrate our nation’s birthday?

Whether it’s a slight pop of color on your workout headband or a full-on American flag on your jersey leggings, we’ve got you covered. Here is some 4th of July-inspired fitness gear that will add a little patriotism to your workout.
