7 Fun Health-Inspired Halloween Costumes

The key to a great Halloween is finding an exciting costume and playing your character to perfection. So use some muscle and vitalize your fitness passion with one of these fitness-inspired costumes. You’re sure to get a laugh or a “noice!”

1. Lara Croft

Let’s get real, this girl is crazy in shape. And why wouldn’t she be? She’s a gaming legend. This one is pretty easy to pull together. All you need is to watch Lara Croft Tomb Raider or play the game to get into character.

2. Game of Thrones

Need a group costume? Look no further! You can’t deny that these characters could kick our butts! Think of all the sword-fighting and long and grueling journeys during war! No, we can’t deny they’re ready for battle. These costumes are a little more advanced, but we have faith in you. Let it be said though, you’ll be the talk of the party!

3. Your Anytime Fitness Manager or Trainer

Get ready for a laugh. Get to a healthier place by stopping in the club on Halloween as…wait for it… YOUR GYM MANAGER! Don’t forget to learn his or her mannerisms! Make sure to give everyone you see a workout challenge! May I recommend burpees? A name tag also is a must.

4. Hans and Franz

We’re going to PUMP… you UP! Hey guys, grab your lifting buddy and go as Hans and Franz! This costume couldn’t be more comfortable either! You just need sweat pants, a sweat shirt, a belt, and lifting gloves. If you really want to get into it, head to your local costume shop to find some muscle inserts—or ROCK YOUR OWN!

5. Thor

This guy God is kind of a big deal! You can learn how to make the Thor costume above at Instructables.com!

6. Yogi

This costume will probably win the comfort award. You’ll need a pair of yoga pants, a yoga tank, hair in a pony, and your yoga mat and bag! Done. You’re now a Halloween yogi. The trick here is to walk around talking in yoga terms like… “Namaste!”

7. Marathon-Running Forest Gump

A crowd-pleaser for sure, this costume is from the timeless movie Forest Gump! Get yourself a fake beard (or real, if you roll like that), yellow tee, red shorts, and knee-length socks and you’re ready to run!
