Gym MVP - Our Editors Tried Fabletics Men And Nike

It's just about summer, and you know what that means...time to get outside and get active! But first, it’s time to ditch your ratty workout gear and invest in durable activewear that will last — without breaking the bank.

Our editors have been on the search for an activewear brand that has everything you could possibly need. No matter if you need gear for playing ball, heading off on a hike, or simply chilling on the couch.

Quite a few brands came close to ticking all of the boxes and, ultimately, two came out on top: Fabletics Men and Nike.

When we compared both to see which has the best activewear for men, here’s what we found:

Key Similarities:

  • Both brands design workout and sportswear that includes sports apparel, loungewear, and accessories
  • Both brands emphasize quality and use premium fabrics that maximize your workouts
  • Both brands provide access to workout apps that support your training

Key Differences:

  • Fabletics Men products average $24 (with VIP membership) | Nike products average $45+
  • Fabletics Men runs promotions regularly | Nike rarely has promotions on new drops except on major holidays
  • Fabletics Men’s $59.95 monthly membership has yearlong credits and promos | Nikes' membership offers new drops but few discounts

Fabletics Men

From shorts, joggers, pants, tees, tanks, vests, sweatshirts, and jackets, to socks and caps, everything you need is in one place — at an insane price. Fabletics’ innovative tech and premium fabrics ensure you’ll look and feel exceptional.

As a new VIP member, you'll find amazing deals like 70% off your first order, $24 Pants, 2 for $24 shorts, and 2 for $15 on tees and tanks.

Here's how it works: for $59.95 each month, members have exclusive access to new arrivals every week with 20-50% off. It’s a super flexible membership – just opt to ‘Skip-the-Month’ by the 5th and avoid being charged. If you forget to skip, Member Credits can be redeemed for any 2-piece outfit or item up to $100, online or in-store.Plus, there’s an entire year before your credit expires!

Not to mention, there’s free shipping, returns, and access to the Fabletics FIT App featuring trainer-led, on-demand workouts.

With Fabletics Men, it's all about quality, function, and style. We love Fabletics’ exclusive benefits and saving money so we stock up whenever we want.


We’ve all heard of Nike — one of the most recognizable sports brands in the world. Mainly known for their sneakers, they also have tons of clothes and accessories — from tees to workout clothes, fleece trousers, jackets, and hoodies.

Nike uses a bunch of different materials and technologies in their product line — all designed to optimize your workouts. Their prices are definitely higher than average: tees start at $45.96, and their workout shorts are $51.86. That’s a bit steep for us.

Nike’s membership program offers access to the Member Shop, which boasts a unique collection of Nike shoes and pieces only available to Nike Members. Although their membership is free, you don't get any extra discounts, so it doesn't feel like a membership at all.

Editor’s Note: Nike has special promos for holidays and special events, but the chance of finding your size is slim!

Final Thoughts

With Nike, while everything is fine quality, it feels like you’re paying for the brand name — and the advertising — more than anything else. Fabletics Men’s performance apparel is truly exceptional — hello, The Fundamental Short II and Training Day Muscle Tank!

Fabletics Men’s fabrics are anti-static, anti-stink, and a 4-way stretch that is made for heavy workout sessions, impromptu jogs, or even a pick-up game. All this, but at an incredible price point.

Although we’ve been loyal Nike users in the past, we're Fabletics Men now. In the end, it’s simply the better of the two because Fabletics has everything the big brands have and more.

With something for every guy out there and unbeatable offers like the 2 for $24 on shorts, you will want to make the switch to Fabletics Men today!
