Fitness Gear to Boost Your Summer Workout
These six innovative pieces eliminate funk, friction, fatigue and more courtesy of high-tech designs and fabrics you’ll love.
The extremely lightweight 2XU GHST Singlet (2xu.com, $60) is stitched with xylitol, which creates an all-over cooling sensation when temperatures (and you!) heat up.
Made with recycled polyester, Athleta’s Maze Be Free Knicker (athleta.com, $64) wicks moisture and leaves you smelling fresh post-gym thanks to anti-odor salts infused into the fabric that last wash after wash.
Asics GEL-Nimbus 17 sneakers (asics.com, $150) have a seamless mesh construction for a comfortably snug fit that stretches with every step to curb rubbing. The antimicrobial sockliner also stops stink by diminishing wetness and germs.
With its UV protection and no-snag nylon, the New Balance Ultra Half Zip (newbalance.com, $85) saves you from sunburn and keeps you from getting caught on branches.
Compression garments—like the sun-blocking and silky smooth Vimmia Printed Cosmos Short (carbon38.com, $66)—are designed to increase blood flow to your muscles, reducing post-exercise soreness.
