Halloween is one of the biggest party nights of the year and a night where millions of people embrace fancy dress. While dressing up is great fun, standing out from the crowd and coming up with a costume that’s truly unique can be difficult. That’s why today I’ve put together a list of 7 Fitness Themed Halloween Costume Ideas that you can use on October 31st to share your passion for fitness with the world and also create a costume that’s unique and original.
1) Rocky Balboa
Sylvester Stallone is one of the most well known fitness icons of all time and Rocky Balboa is one of his most famous characters. In total, Rocky Balboa has appeared in six different films, spanning across 30 years. The films are renowned for their inspirational training scenes and their high tempo soundtrack with songs such as ‘Eye Of The Tiger‘ and ‘Burning Heart‘ being played by millions of people every single day as they hit the gym and workout. By dressing up as Rocky Balboa, your Halloween outfit is sure to deliver a knockout punch and impress everyone that sees it on the night.
To create your Rocky Balboa Halloween costume, you will need…
– 1 Rocky Balboa Black and Gold Boxing Robe
– 1 Pair Of Rocky Balboa Black/Gold Boxing Shorts
– 1 Pair Of Everlast Velcro Pro Style Boxing Training Gloves
– 1 Pair Of Adidas Box Hog Boxing Boots
Once you have all the kit, simply put it on and you’re good to go. Then to finish off the Rocky effect, make sure you practice your punches and get ready to shout “Adrian!” at some point during the night.
2) The Terminator
Arnold Schwarzenegger is another extremely famous fitness icon and the Terminator is his most well known character by far. As a character, the Terminator perfectly combines the themes of fitness and Halloween. On the one hand, you have Arnold himself being a former professional bodybuilder and fitness pioneer. However, on the other hand, the Terminator character is a murderous robot whose sole intention is to wipe out the human race which puts it up there with all the other chilling Halloween characters.
To create your Terminator costume, you will need…
– 1 Men’s Black Classic Leather Biker Brando Jacket
– 1 Black T Shirt
– 1 Pair Of Classic Fitted Men’s Leather Pants
– 1 Pair Of Mens Black Skechers Gunnar Tucson Leather Military Biker Boots
– 1 Pair Of Terminator Style Motorcycle Glasses
– 1 Pack Of Terminator Cyborg Wounds
– 1 Black P99 Wicke Agent Cap Gun
Once you’re fully kitted out in your Terminator costume, all that’s left to do is perfect your robot walk and utter the line; “I’ll Be Back!” as you leave the house.
Rambo is another one of Sylvester Stallone’s most well known and loved movie characters. However, while Rocky’s weapon of choice is a pair of boxing gloves, Rambo’s is a knife and a gun. In terms of fitness, Rambo is a great Halloween costume if you’ve been hitting the gym hard and really lets you show off your lean, mean, muscular physique.
To create your Rambo costume, you will need…
– 1 Black Tank Top
– 1 Pair Of Camo Cargo Pants
– 1 Pair Of Rothco Steel Toe Jungle Boots
– 1 Red Bandana
– 1 Franki Baker Green Aventurine Tibetan Buddha and Silver Pendant
– 1 TD-2011 Toy Machine Gun
– 1 Rubber Dagger
Then when it’s time for you to head out for your Halloween celebtrations, put on your costume, arm yourself with the toy machine gun and rubber dagger and go do Rambo proud.
4) Bruce Lee – Game Of Death
Before Stallone and Schwarzenegger rose to fame, Bruce Lee was a global fitness icon who starred on both the big screen and small screen. He made a total of five films before his untimely death in 1973 and also starred in the popular television series – The Green Hornet. During his rise to fame, Bruce Lee demonstrated amazing speed, strength and reflexes along with a brilliant physique. He was also inspirational in the fitness world and motivated many people to improve their physical fitness levels and start practising martial arts. Even today, over 30 years after his death, Bruce Lee is a name that is instantly recognised around the world.
Although Bruce Lee starred in five different films during his short career, his most memorable outfit by far is the yellow and black stripe jumpsuit that he wore in the unfinished 1973 movie – Game Of Death. In fact, this outfit is so iconic that Quentin Tarantino referenced it in his 2003 movie – Kill Bill and used it as the outfit for his main character in that film – The Bride. For this reason, it’s a perfect, fitness themed Halloween costume choice.
To create your Bruce Lee – Game Of Death costume, you will need…
– 1 Bruce Lee – Game Of Death/Kill Bill Jumpsuit
– 1 Pair Of Onitsuka Tiger Mexico 66 Yellow Black Men’s Trainers
– 1 Yellow Bruce Lee Foam Rubber Safety Training Nunchucks
Once you’re dressed in all yellow, all you need to do is get into character by practising your roundhouse kicks and memorising the brilliant Bruce Lee quote; “Board’s don’t fight back.”
5) Luc Devreaux – Universal Soldier
While Jean Claude Van Damme has never reached the same level of success as Arnold Schwarzenegger or Sylvester Stallone, he’s still a well known film star with Universal Soldier being his most popular role. He’s also an icon when it comes to fitness and has a muscular physique and an extremely impressive range of flexibility which allows him to perform full box splits in the vast majority of his films. In addition to this, he’s a highly skilled martial artist. By dressing up as Luc Devreaux from Universal Soldier, you can recreate Van Damme’s most famous character on Halloween night and demonstrate your love of fitness at the same time.
To create your Luc Devreaux – Universal Soldier costume, you will need…

Then once you have all your kit together, fine tune your Belgian accent, make sure you’re walking like a robot and head out for Halloween as Luc Devreaux.
6) Barney Ross – The Expendables
The Expendables has an all star cast that’s full of fitness icons including Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jason Statham, making it the perfect film for both fans of 80s action movies and newcomers to the genre alike.
