You spend your days at the office counting down the minutes until you can barre, burpee, or bust a move in dance cardio class. On weekends, you're off and running—and enjoying all the fringe benefits of hitting the pavement. And in between, it's all about Instagram inspo. (BTW we can save you some scrolling time if you're looking for the ultimate breakfast smoothie recipe.)

So when you're planning a topical costume that'll turn heads at your Halloween party, it's time to spoof your real life—not the one Ricky's or Target imagines you to have. (How many "sexy" pirates have you actually met?)

To help you out, we've rounded up some wellness-savvy get-ups that are budget-friendly, DIY, and on-trend. From pop singers and their athleisure-inspired looks to Olympians rocking Rio-ready uniforms (or meme-worthy facial expressions), you can pull these timely looks together in no time.

Scroll down to see the trendiest DIY Halloween costumes, inspired by healthy pop culture icons.

Abbi Abrams in Broad City

Call this Soulstice classic—from the days when Abbi (played by Abbi Jacobson) was the go-to for "pube situations" in Broad City's fictional Equinox-meets-SoulCycle, before her big break into trainer-dom. Complete the look with gloves and a headset.

Purple balloons, $4.57
Dressis Mini Tank Dress, $14.99

Ariana Grande performing "Side to Side"

Ariana Grande seriously impressed us during her VMAs performance earlier this year (especially considering she did an entire workout in stilleto-heeled boots). You probably won't be able to bring a bike around with you—although an at-home Peloton bike would sure do the trick!—you can still rock Grande's signature high ponytail to really channel the singer.

Shop the look:
Neon Brights Plastic Visor, $7.65
Jockey Sport Seamless Bra, $34
H&M White Sweatpants, $19.99
Converse Hi-Top Sneakers, $38,75
Hands-Free Headset, $9.65

Tracy Anderson

Just like Anderson's A-list clients, the star trainer has her own signature look: baggy cropped sweats, a tight tank, and—of course—her light hand weights. As a bonus, the extra poundage will help give you a low-impact workout while you party on Halloween.

Shop the look:
3-pound weights, $12.98
Victoria's Secret Banded Boyfriend Pant, $54.50
Climawear On Point Jacquard Knit Tank, $44

Member of the Final Five

The new wave of superstar Olympic gymnasts has inspired with more than just their outfits.

Throw on your favorite red, white, and blue leotard with a gold medal (or six) to channel your favorite Final Five member.

Shop the look:
K-Bee Intensity Mystique Leotard, $38
Multiple gold medals, $4.95
