We rounded up the best spin class outfits, for whether you’re packing up your gym bag and heading to the studio or hopping on your Peloton to ride at home.
One of my favorite ways to sweat my cares away is indoor cycling because of its fun, freeing atmosphere. Getting synchronized as a group in spin class whether virtual or in-person is one of the best ways to boost your emotional wellness. Some might say it’s basically as good as therapy. But what do you wear?
Here are my handy tips for choosing the best workout clothes for cycling.

Best Spin Class Outfits
1. Spandex is your friend.
You’re riding a piece of mechanical equipment so you definitely do not want to wear loose workout clothes that can get caught in moving parts! In fact, it’s downright dangerous. There’s a reason Lance Armstrong wears spandex. While you may not be flying through the French countryside, sleek indoor cycling clothes make for a smoother, safer, more efficient ride.
2. Coordinate to make it fun!
Liven up your spin class outfits with vibrant colors and prints, and never be afraid of looking “matchy-matchy.” (That’s kind of what it’s all about.) Match your sports bra with your leggings, and you’re good to go! It’s all about having fun with your outfits, choosing fun pieces that make you feel good and want to get out and sweat.
3. Breezy is best.
While fitted indoor cycling apparel is essential, breathability is also a must. You’re going to be sweating buckets, so a spin class outfit that allows for airflow will keep you cool, comfortable, and bring you some much-needed relief during your workout. Pick leggings with mesh cutouts or a top with an open back to keep your ride breezy.
4. Transitional pieces are key.
I don’t know about you, but my favorite group workouts usually happen on weekends and include brunch with friends afterward. I always make sure my workout clothes are both functional and cute so I can head straight from an indoor cycle session to socializing over a coffee or mimosa. After all, friends that sweat (and brunch) together, stay together!
I hope these tips help you build up your wardrobe with the best workout apparel for indoor cycling.
