Want to spend your workout outdoors with a fitness-friendly run? Want to start your day with a healthy but tasty snack? Want to comfortably relax and re-center under the sun? This list of the latest July fitness essentials is full of bright and new must-haves for every activity. Now let’s light the fuse and see what sparkles in the dog days of summer.
Tracksmith Run Cannonball Run Collection
This all-new summer line from Tracksmith’s running-focused tracksmith doesn’t just serve as stylish kit for your next mile. It is also a list of instructions. When those July temperatures reach the triple digits, sometimes the best recovery session involves a dip in the nearest body of water.
The reintroduced Run Cannonball Run collection includes tees, tops, shorts and accessories — like this women’s running tank — that are ready to splash. Borrowing styles from the Twilight, Van Cortlandt and Allston collections, these clothing selections showcase comfort and style with eccentric marigolds and pearl blues. Whether you’re diving into the water or just dipping your toes into a summer run, these swim-friendly strings are sure to keep the good vibes going.
Komuso Classic Shift Necklace
July is known for calm, clear skies, but that doesn’t mean anxiety and stress can’t cloud even the brightest of days. The Classic Shift from Komuso is a stylish piece of jewelry designed to help you slow down your breathing to refocus when those difficult circumstances arise.
To use the Classic Shift, simply breathe into the 2-inch pendant, made of high-grade 316 stainless steel, for 10 seconds. This whistle-like piece helps you slow down your breathing, giving you control over your breathing as you shift your focus and regain control of your well-being. The chain and pendant come in different colors, so you can match your jewelry to your personal summer aesthetic. The whisper-quiet profile lets you manage anxiety wherever your adventures take you.
Hoka Mach 5
With bold colors and even bolder innovations, running icon Hoka has had quite the summer so far. And it looks like the “Take Flight” brand isn’t lowering its stature with its latest release in the all-new Mach 5. Combining styling cues from the previous Mach 4 and Mach Supersonic, this daily racer offers a lively, lively stride that’s perfect for pounding the pavement this July.
The updated dual-density ProFly+ midsole gives every step the soft, comfortable landing that has become standard on the Mach stable. Jacquard mesh covers your foot for a durable, stylish profile, while a flat tongue with a stitched tongue helps improve traction. With a handful of colorways available that stay true to Hoka’s bold, stand-out style, these day trainers could be the exclamation point you need to really push the pace.

Hydro Wave Rower
Going out on the water is the ultimate summer activity, and it can also be a real workout. Because when you don’t want to take a trip to the lake — or don’t have room for that bulky kayak — indoor rowing machines can definitely keep the fun afloat. Hydrow, makers of our favorite indoor rower, just expanded their line of fitness essentials with the space-saving Wave Rower.
Coming in at 36 square inches smaller than the brand’s flagship model, the Hydrow Wave is also 40 pounds lighter and still delivers an impressive workout experience. Paddle your favorite waterscapes or take part in Hydrow’s abundance of live and on-demand training sessions. Front-facing speakers and a 16-inch full HD screen keep you engaged through every stroke, and at $1,000 less than the original Hydrow rower, this essential home fitness machine can make staying active a smooth endeavor.
Puma Run XX Nitro
Running is a universal activity. Required footwear should follow suit, for men and for athletes. At least, that’s the mindset Puma has introduced with its all-new Run XX Nitro women’s running shoes. Designed specifically for the female footprint, this latest runner features elements that better hug the female heel, crease and arch, along with an updated Nitro Foam midsole for a lightweight and durable ride.
The Run XX Nitro also caters to street runners for longer distances, thanks to the Run Guide rigid edge that helps better align your foot and increases your stability. As Puma continues to expand its running lineup, this women’s-focused silhouette has us itching to see what’s next on the calendar.
