If you’re a fan of “Dancing With the Stars,” you’ve no doubt admired contestant Amanda Kloots‘ poise, presence and persistence in the ballroom.
“The Talk” co-host and fitness instructor told Page Six Style that the competition is “beyond hard, both physically and emotionally,” despite scoring favorably with straight eights for her foxtrot with partner Alan Bersten — her favorite dance so far.
“[It] brings the biggest smile to my face every day,” Kloots, 39, added. “I’m truly having the best time and I love being able to perform and dance again.”
More than just a learning experience, her time on “DWTS” has proved downright transformative for Kloots.
“The most important thing I’ve learned about myself is that all of my insecurities
are literally laid out on the table every day right away,” she said. “There’s no time to pout about them or even get self-conscious — you have to accept them, try to fix them,
learn from them and improve immediately.”

And while she dons stunning costumes to perform on the show, Kloots said her personal style leans more laid-back, calling it “comfortable and chill with an edge of sexy.”
For elevated workout wear, she swears by Bandier, naming its AA Center Stage Legging ($98) and Front Row Bra ($68), AA Encore Cropped Raw Edge Tee ($48) and SJ Juniper Zip-Up Hoodie ($88) as a few of her favorites for “DWTS” rehearsals.
“It’s a family business and a one-stop shop for the best of the best in athletic fashion,” she told us of the company, whose Friends & Family Sale runs until October 11.
Below, Kloots shares more of her favorite pieces for practicing her tangos, salsas and jives. From sweatshirts to biker shorts, there’s something for every type of workout enthusiast.
