We all love the gym; it's a comfort zone for many. It’s cool on those hot summer days when you still want to get your sweat on, you know where all the equipment is & what time to get it, and there are always a few regular faces that you feel are like unspoken friends.
But if the pandemic has taught us anything, it’s that we can still get a good workout in even if it’s not in the confines of our beloved gym. Many of us have realised that getting some fresh air and soaking in some much-needed vitamin D is a good way to shake up our fitness routine and enjoy the great outdoors.
But with training outdoors comes a whole new element of conditions that you have to face - not every outdoor session is going to be sunshine and rainbows. Thankfully, our activewear is both suitable for inside and outside the gym so that you can train comfortably, wherever. We had a chat with our Head of Fashion and have compiled a list of our best pieces that can help you take it to the next level for your outdoor workouts.
‘Optimal is a great collection when training in the elements of the outdoors. Whether it's warm or cool, this collection features super lightweight and breathable fabrics that are perfect for those tough outdoor sessions. Our Windbreaker jacket is a must have when it comes to training outdoors and especially when the conditions are less than ideal. Its lightweight fabric not only offers you freedom of movement but also features a water repellency treatment that will keep you from getting soaked in the middle of your workout.’ - Head of Design, Jess.
