Bala Bangles Are the Workout Accessory You Never Knew You Needed

Like it or not, athleisure is still a thing. (Sometimes we even sport our athleisure apparel to the gym.) The latest stylish workout gear? Bala Bangles. The fashionable wide bracelets, which you may have already spotted at some major New York City exercise studios, are actually wearable weights that are almost too posh to take off post-workout.

From Pilates to strength training, the bangles are designed to make your workout more challenging. Inspired by jazzercise wrist weights from the 80s, the thoroughly modern bracelets are especially effective when you’re doing leg raises, pull-ups or core training. They’re also a great alternative to dumbbells because traditional weights limit your range of motion.

They come in a range of cool colors, from deep blue to neutrals. The brand even partnered with sites like Free People to offer limited-edition shades (we’re crushing hard on the sunshine yellow set). Check out the slideshow above to see which weights work for you.
