If you’re like most people and have waited until the last minute to start brainstorming a Halloween costume this year, you might find the pressure of nailing the perfect ensemble to be getting in the way of your excitement. But don’t worry –– we’ve got your costume covered this year, thanks to these five super simple fitness-inspired getups. And the best part is, all you’ll need to create your costume is a little bit of your usual exercise gear. (The second best part is that when it comes to burning off all that Halloween candy, you can pretty much start right away since you’ll already be dressed and ready to go.)

1. GIGI IN THE BOXING RING

Gigi Hadid proved that her boxing sessions with trainer Rob Piela are paying off when she defended herself after an aggressive prankster attacked the model in Milan. So even if you’re not planning on getting in the ring anytime soon a la Hadid, it’s definitely worth spending a night looking like you do.

Nike Power Legend Twist Stretch-Jersey Leggings, $85

2. USAIN BOLT
