Turn heads at the gym for your deadlifts and your fresh threads
If there are two things Hong Kongers love (besides food!) it’s fitness and fashion. So why not combine them both this season with the hottest sportswear apparel on the market. Whether you’re just starting your fitness journey or you’re already a gym rat, new workout gear can give you that extra push to crush your goals.
Read on to find your new favourite workout gear.
In the gym or on the streets, bike shorts are a total fashion move at the moment. Nike makes a great pair that transitions seamlessly between the squat rack and a girl’s brunch: the Nike Air Shorts. These high-waisted beauties are as comfortable as they are versatile. They’ll stay put during the most rigorous workouts, and still look cute when you’re sipping your smoothie after.
Step into the gym in style in a pair of Adidas AlphaBounce Beyond trainers. They have enough cushion to support you on cardio days, support for when you need, and enough sole-grip to keep you going on all terrain. These are perfect for people who like to switch up their routine and never get caught in a workout rut – their just as versatile as you.
No self-respecting gym bunny can go without a tried-and-true pair of leggings. Like bike shorts, they’re perfect for almost any occasion – from brunch to squats. They offer fuller protection, compression and coverage than shorts, and are generally the most comfortable pair of pants around. Try the Nike Epic Lux line, especially if you’re a runner. They’re made with a little more Spandex, for a form-fitting fit, and contain Dri-FIT technology to wick away sweat during your workouts. Also, we love this cool washed coral red design which will help you standout in a crowded gym.
A good workout means plenty of sweat, an Lululemon wants you to embrace it with their Sweat Your Heart Out top. Made with a mesh-like four-way stretch material, this shirt has ventilated coverage that leaves you cool but covered. It’s your new must-have for high-intensity classes like spin or circuits.
All a good workout needs is determination, grit, and support. Nothing derails progress like feeling self-conscious about your body, or even worse – being sore! Hong Kong’s own Caelum Greene makes a sports bra so beautiful, it’s basically a top. We love the MICHI Fusion Cutout Bra. It has unparalleled softness, extra support, and sweat-wicking technology. Did we mention it looks cool too? Because it’s really gorgeous.
