We are proud to present the third BeautyMNL Awards: a twelve-part event that celebrates this fabulous year in beauty and wellness. After comprehensive discussion—and a whole lot of road-testing—the girls at the BeautyMNL office have listed the Best Products of 2018.
In the tenth installment of the 2018 BeautyMNL Awards, we’re putting the focus on fitness. We’re of the mind that the products and the activewear we sweat in should work just as, if not harder, than we do. But with so many choices out there, we know how challenging it can be to figure out which ones are worth our hard-earned money.

Luckily, the BeautyMNL team did all the work for you. We found the 16 Best Fitness Products that will keep you in fighting form. From sports bras and leggings to small equipment and sports nutrition, the list includes everything you need to become your healthiest, fittest self. Get a head start on your New Year’s resolutions with one of these picks. Just scroll!

Active Myofascial Release Ball, P600
“Works to roll out any tension on the back or other parts of the body. Plus, it’s small and portable, so it’s easy to bring in your bag!” – Frankie C.

Active Resistance Glute Bands (Goal Getter Collection), P700
“I use this at the office when I want to exercise my legs and booty, but have to earn a living too! They’re very easy and versatile, and just the right equipment for someone like me who isn’t really into fitness but likes to squeeze in a super-duper light workout when I can.” – Bea M.

“I bring this with me everyday, everywhere. Good for glute activation exercises and for added resistance when doing my other leg workouts! Saw major improvements in my physique since I started using these!” – Kristen Z.

“These bands provide a great way to sneak in a little exercise under the table, even during work hours! I personally love the highest resistance band as it helps you feel the burn even after just 5 minutes into the routine.” – Pam C.

Andi Activewear Jo Raven Seamless Crop, P750
“I wore this in a spinning class and felt really comfortable and at ease. It has a great fit on my body and supports my upper body well.” – Marla M.

“This ultra-cute top has been on such heavy rotation since the day I received my package, I almost feel bad for all my other workout clothes! It’s universally flattering, extremely comfortable, provides great support, survives lots of sweat and movement and multiple washes, is not a struggle to get in and out of (unlike most sports bras), AND you can wear it in and out of the gym—just pair it with high-waist jeans and throw a jacket over it to make it more office-appropriate or night out-friendly. LOVE!” – Lianne S.

The Andi Activewear Jo Seamless Crop is available in Alabaster, too.

Andi Activewear Emilie Charcoal Gray Push Up Sports Bra, P825
“I was looking for a new sports bra and found this really cute, so I decided to purchase it. I’m really satisfied and impressed with the quality! It provides enough support, fits perfectly, and allows me to move comfortably.” – Carli D.

The Andi Activewear Emilie Push Up Sports Bra is available in Raven, too.

Feet and Right Yoga Towel, P699
“I really like this yoga towel! It’s perfect for yogis like me who don’t want to carry my yoga mat everywhere I go.” – Trish R.

Fitique Nutrition Booty Band Loop Resistance Bands, P599
“My booty’s best friend! The best tool for keeping your muscles engaged even while remaining seated for 8 hours or more at work.” – Nisee L.

Flux Movement Wrap Around the World Top (Green), P600
“I always look forward to wearing this wrap when I spin or do yoga. It’s so stylish yet so comfy to wear!” – Angie G.

Machita Activewear Sculpt Tights in Black, P1,700
“These tights fit so well that I could almost assume they were custom-made for me! I also loved how I could easily move in these tights (ideal for all kinds of workouts). Because of how much I really liked this, I also got the same tights in the color Plum. I’m crossing my fingers for other colors in the future!” – Reg E.

The Machita Activewear Sculpt Tights is available in Plum, too.

One Bar, P159 each
“This is probably the best-tasting protein bar in the market. ALL their flavors taste so good, yet they only have 20g of protein and SO little sugar in them. I’m never without one of these in my bag!” – Patty G.

Puma Powershape Forever Logo Bra, P1,650
“I like wearing this when working out because it looks nice, fits well, and provides the support needed. Also, it’s very simple and basic, and it pretty much goes well with any pair of workout bottoms.” – Maia M.

RXBar Chocolate Sea Salt Protein Bar (52g), P135
“Unlike most protein bars, this one doesn’t taste like protein at all. I’d credit it to the fact that it derives its protein from egg whites, and not whey like the usuals. The ingredients list is clean and short, it tastes amazing, and you can ration it if you have a smaller appetite. A single bar lasts me 3-4 snack servings, and it totally satiates my craving for sweets!” – Ayana T.

The Superfood Grocer StarterPack 4-Piece Set, P695
“All the contents of this pack help me build stamina for a great workout! I find a way to drink them all up, and the benefits of each one (especially of the spirulina included) always arm me with alertness and stamina to work out better and longer, plus help with quicker muscle recovery after.” – Joanna T.

The Superfood Grocer StartPack is available in a 7-Piece variant, too.

Tesla Yoga Pants High-Waist Tummy Control in Black, P950
“The first time I used this was on my first spin class. Needless to say, every part of me was drenched in sweat afterward. However, I was surprised at how it dried so quickly! I didn’t notice any sweat marks either. (I did get the black one so I can’t speak for the other colors.) The high-rise cut makes it flattering and gives just the right amount of compression as well. I discovered this brand from my friends who mentioned that they’re a great dupe for Lululemon leggings, and at 1/4 the price, I can say you’re definitely getting the best bang for your buck.” – Rimina P.

The Tesla Yoga Pants High-Waist Tummy Control is available in Gray, Navy, and Olive, too.

Towelite Bath Towel (24 x 48in), P580
“I love traveling with this! It’s super lightweight, compact, and it absorbs and dries faster than a regular towel! It also comes in so many different sizes!” – Patty G.

Wheyl Nutrition Co. Just Naked White Whey Protein, P550
“I super love this flavor! Just the right amount of sweetness, and you can easily mix other ingredients to make a protein smoothie! The packaging is also super cute, not intimidating, which is perfect for their female audience.” – Bea C.

Wheyl Nutrition Co. Just Clean Caramel Whey Protein, P550
“I always mix this with my post-workout smoothie for that much-needed protein fix. I never feel hungry afterwards because it makes my smoothies more filling. I love the flavors that they offer, as well as the fact that the taste isn’t overpowering. 10/10 would recommend!” – Mara T.
