January is the perfect time to get back on track with your fitness routine and start a new year of healthy living. While it’s easy to create a list of ambitious fitness goals, it can be trick to maintain your motivation throughout the year. One of the easiest ways to get inspired in the gym is to find clothes that are cute and functional while you’re burning calories. We’ve researched the latest innovations in fitness fashion to put together a list of workout gear that will help you accomplish your goals in 2015!
Sweating may be an inevitable side effect of burning calories, but that doesn’t mean you need to exercise in wet, sticky workout gear. Fitness fashion companies have created new types of fabric that keep you dry and comfortable throughout your exercise routine. The Champion Double Dry Absolute Leggings are made of a special fabric that wicks away moisture from your body, and the Nike Dri-Fit Running Shorts also feature mesh vents to keep your skin cool and dry. You can also keep your feet dry to reduce blisters and discomfort with the Nike Dri-Fit Socks.
Avoid the Smell
In addition to keeping your skin dry, Athleta features a line of workout clothing infused with antimicrobial silver salts that prevent your clothes from holding onto bacteria and developing the signature post-workout smell. That means you can wear your clothes more often and wash them less often without worrying about pesky odors! The Athleta Zip-Up, Fastest Track Tank, Be Free Knickers, and Sahara Chatarunga Shorts all feature this anti-microbial material as well as a REGUL8 fabric that regulates your body temperature to prevent you from getting too hot or too cold during your workout.
Get Night Visibility
It can be hard to fit a workout into your busy daily routine, so many people fit in a workout in the evening. Thankfully fitness companies have created lines of clothing specifically made for night runners that increase your visibility in dark environments. The Puma Mobium Ride Nightcat sneakers are made with a material that is highly reflective at any angle, and they also feature a blue LED light for extra visibility. The FILA Flare Reflective Running Jacket and Athleta Sonar Reflective Dot Tight both feature reflective designs to keep you safe in the dark!
