Pride Month is upon us and whether you're a runner or cross training is more your thing every fitness junkie needs a pair of brightly colored running shoes or one of these pride tees in their life to show their support.
From Under Armour's Pride collection (featuring the brilliant 'love all athletes' slogan tee (opens in new tab) and tank top (opens in new tab) pictured above) to Nike's new Be True collection - which is inspired by the idea that sport can be the setting for radical inclusivity - we love the thought of spreading the Pride message and rainbow colors as we go for our weekly jog.
When it comes to fitness gear Adidas Love Unites range is perfect for a workout, or a comfortable rainbow colored alternative while you're WFH, while Puma's Unisex Forever Free collection, created in collaboration with supermodel and LGBTQ+ advocate Cara Delevingne, is a mix of tees, hoodies and leggings.
Take a look at some of the best sportswear collections to celebrate Pride Month in more detail below...
Under Armour's Pride Collection
Under Armour's HOVR Rise 2 shoes make it into our round-up of the best cross training shoes (opens in new tab), but the iconic style also comes in runners - and we love this update on the HOVR Sonic running shoes (opens in new tab), with rainbow colored soles and laces. As well as supporting Pride Month with these trainers you'll also benefit from UA HOVR™ technology, which provides a 'zero gravity feel' when running and real-time form Coaching from UA MapMyRun™. The brand's Pride tees are also perfectly styled - choose from its black 'united we win, divided we fall' tank top or the short-sleeved pride Courage t-shirt.

This Love Unites collection (opens in new tab) from Adidas is super stylish and gender neutral. The Love Unites allover crewneck t-shirts come in a patchwork of colors, reflecting the multiple identities that make up the LGBTQ+ community. While the brand has jazzed up some of their well-known trainers too - including their Ultraboost shoes, which are available in a rainbow color, with a Love Unites slogan on the tongue.

Puma's Forever Free Pride Collection (opens in new tab), which includes tees, hoodies, footwear and leggings, has been made to inspire others to be free from fear and believe in themselves. With Cara Delevinge fronting the campaign we love its Pride-inspired take on the classic PUMA Suede as well as its rainbow embellished slider. While we can't get enough of its rainbow accents and ‘Forever Free’ slogans which are emblazoned across their leggings and tees.

During lockdown she found her love of running outside again and now attempts to run around 50 miles a month. When it comes to other fitness, she loves a sweaty cardio session – although since she’s been working out from home she’s sure her downstairs neighbors aren’t too happy about it. She also loves to challenge herself - and has signed up to do hiking holidays, intense bootcamps and last year she went on her dream activity holiday: paddle boarding around deserted islands in Croatia. On her rest days, she loves to recover with a simple yoga flow session – the perfect antidote to her active fitness schedule.
