As March comes to end and we enter into the Spring, it means that Summer will be here before we know it. With that in mind, how many of us are reluctantly putting away our comforting woollies and waterproofs in favour of lighter, less bulky clothing? It also means, that more and more of us are hitting the gym with a vengeance for some intense training in the hope of getting that beach body beautiful!!!
But did you know as well as doing the right exercises in the gym, what you wear is also important? It turns out, the clothes you choose can actually have a pretty big impact on your performance. Besides helping you get into the right mindset to tackle a gym session, they provide a host of other benefits as well.
At Activemen Clothing, we stock a number of undiscovered brands aimed specifically at men who want to look good as well as feel good during your work out. We are delighted to be able to share these with you along with the top three benefits of choosing the right workout apparel during your gym or other exercise and training sessions.
Due to the fact that you’re going to be sweating a lot during your workouts, it helps to have the appropriate clothes. And having breathable fabrics (like the specialty fabric found in the Björn Borg T-shirt) that wick away moisture and keep you feeling cool and dry is going to make a tremendous difference in how you feel.
Your ultimate essential training partner, this Björn Borg Tee has your back, whatever your activity. A high-performance training tee in single jersey made from Hydro Pro material that wicks moisture away from the skin to keep you dry and comfortable when it matters. Besides its sweat-wicking abilities, the performance fabric found in the Björn Borg line is also great because it won’t promote bacteria growth. Less sweat and bacteria growth means no more smelly workout clothes!
It’s important to feel comfortable when you are training, and though cheaper, cotton options may seem the best option, this fabric will start to get damp and heavy once you’ve been sweating in it.
By spending a bit more on the right workout gear, you’re investing in clothing that is going to be extra durable, allowing you to get plenty of use out of it. Compared to what you'd find at a typical department store or on a sale rack, performance clothing such as the Physiq Apparel Supreme T-Shirt.
This super cool T-Shirt has become an iconic design since its launch in 2013. It is the most universal, physique accentuating t-shirt for in and outside the gym. The unique stretch fit fabric (made from a cotton and elastane blend) will keep you cool and the high-quality construction is ready for any challenge.
One of the main benefits of wearing the right workout gear is comfort. The worst thing you can do is wear clothing or shoes that you aren’t comfortable in when you hit the gym. For example, the wrong shoes will give your feet blisters and the wrong shorts are only going to rub against and irritate your thighs. Not fun!
When you choose articles of clothing that provide you comfort in terms of the fabric and style, it makes a world of difference. You’ll feel confident in what you’re wearing, which allows you to direct your full attention to your workout instead of feeling self-conscious. Plus, it won’t cause you any discomfort that negatively impacts your performance.
The Pursue Fitness BreathEasy Agility Shorts 3.0 offer a perfect, all year round, relaxed fit for in and out of the gym. Re-invented with new colour ways, fabrics and improved fit, theses knee-length shorts come in a lightweight, breathable, hex-embossed fabric with convenient zipped side pockets and a flat, elasticated waistband.
All of these products, along with other workout brands, are available to order today from the Activemen Clothing website. So what are you waiting for? Let us help you to get that beach body beautiful by feeling good when you’re training or working out.
