One of the best things about Halloween is that it’s the holiday where you can wear almost anything you want and be whatever it is you want to be. No one is going to frown upon your decision to show up at their house dressed like a mime. Try this at Thanksgiving, though, and you might not get such a warm response. But, wear an 80s workout costume to Halloween, and you might just win the costume contest. Get inspired with these fitness Halloween costumes!
10 Hilarious Fitness Halloween Costumes
Your Favorite Beachbody Super Trainer
If you’re like most people, there’s a good chance you love wearing comfortable clothes. There’s no better way to make sweats and tennis shoes look like a costume than by dressing up as your favorite fitness icon. Considering all the time you spend watching the Beachbody trainers during your workouts, you can probably picture their outfits with your eyes closed.
Go solo, or pair up with someone to create The Master’s Hammer and Chisel, just like these Beachbody employees did!
Hans and Franz
This Saturday Night Live-inspired outfit couldn’t be more simple! Grab a friend, a gray sweatshirt and sweatpants, and a big belt. Then, stuff your clothes with cotton or with T-shirts to create that extra-buff look. Are you ready to get pumped up?
Richard Simmons or Jane Fonda
These two fitness icons have been Halloween staples for years. To dress as a convincing Richard Simmons, grab a tank top, very short shorts, high socks, a curly wig, and a headband. For Jane Fonda, it’s all about the leotard, tights, leg warmers, and a feathered or permed brunette wig. The brighter the colors, the better!
It might not be easy to become the most decorated athlete in the world, but dressing up like him is simple. Adorn your neck with up to 28 medals, either hand made or hand purchased from your local party store. Throw on a bathing suit or a giant blue coat, goggles, a swim cap, and you’re done! P.S. This works great for kids, too!
Simon Biles/The USA Gymnastics Team
The USA gymnastics team is a great option for a solo or group costume. If you’re on your own, dress as the gold medal-winning Simon Biles. Or, grab four friends to be the entire gymnastics team. Show some skin with a USA leotard, or keep warm in a red, white, and blue jacket and pants. Do your hair up in a tight, high ponytail or bun with a red ribbon, and don’t forget the glittery makeup!
Want to be your own star? Dress up as a Wheaties Box! You can buy the costume, or if you’re feeling creative, make your own with some cardboard and artistic skills.
Sports Fanatic or Your Favorite Athlete
If you love sports, then this costume will be a no-brainer. Wear as much of your favorite team’s gear to show how you’re the ultimate fan. The more over-the-top the better. Go all out with face paint and props. Or, emulate your favorite athlete by wearing his or her jersey and whatever he or she would wear during a game!
Is there anything cuter than a baby in a Halloween costume? Just look at this mini-Jane Fonda! Dress your kiddo up in a onesie, tiny legwarmers, and a headband, and for bonus points, find a small plush boom box or stuffed weight for them to hold.
What about the pup? While your dog might only want to keep their costume on for a quick picture, it’s sure to be absolutely adorable.
