7. UA Contain Storm Duffle ($80): Hit the gym in style with this new duffle bag from Under Armor. The bag has two large vented end pockets, including one expendable pocket for sweaty laundry.

9. Recovery Compression Tights ($160): The 2XU Recovery Compression Tights promote necessary muscle repair and circulation after any strenuous exercise. The supportive fabric reduces muscle soreness to help athletes stay in training and out of the doctor’s office.
