ABOUT THE WORKOUT: If you want the long lines of a dancer and the strong quads of runner, this is your workout. The reformer-treadmill combo workout pairs low-impact activity with high-intensity training, using human-powered machines (the Megaformer and Woodway Curve) to maximize the burn and sculpt your body.

DRESS FOR IT: Former model Tatiana Korsakova founded her London-based line Vaara because she wanted activewear that combined high-performance features with a soft feel and flattering fit. The color-blocked styles provide support and coverage while still creating a feminine vibe.

DRESS FOR IT: Founded by former public-relations powerhouse turned wellness guru Robyn Berkley, Live the Process is known for its soft fabrics, modern designs, and layering appeal.
