Celebrities are often ahead of the times when it comes to what's trending in fashion or beauty, and that certainly applies to brands as well. One activewear label has been making waves recently thanks to some support from some influential fans, and you’re going to want to take notes.

In case you hadn’t heard of it, Gymshark is the latest sportswear brand on the block, and it’s been trending recently after being spotted on stars like Rebel Wilson, Hailey Bieber and Vanessa Hudgens. It’s likely that you’ve seen some of your favourite influencers rocking their seamless and supportive workout gear too, as they’re also an Instagram-favourite.

Created in 2012 by teenager Ben Francis and a group of his high-school friends, Gymshark has grown into one of the most recognizable brands in the world of health and fitness.
