Range of running apparel
Running equipment eliminates unnecessary decorative elements - nothing be distracting during a run. What kinds of clothing are available and how to choose?
For jogging and gym workouts, the most essential thing is the choice of leggings.
Leggings are probably the most common place to start when composing your workout outfit. For jogging they should be quite firm, but elastic and well-shaped, as the whole is literally shaking, thus support would definitely not be amiss. Leggings should not slip, they should be tight on legs and not interfere with leg movements. It is important to pay attention to the seams, they should be flat and not cut into the skin.
Choosing leggings, it will be easier to choose a beautiful, comfortable, lengthened or cropped top or T-shirts - a fitted or a loose model;
if you chose bright leggings, it will be easy to choose a monochrome top of one of the colors present on them, or choose your favorite black top that will perfectly complement your look or a white top that will refresh your face;
If the leggings are monochromatic, then the choice of the top becomes even easier - choose the exact opposite color. Black to white, blue to yellow, red to green, etc. They say opposites attract for a reason. Or get yourself a monochrome look. All colors are taken into account in our products. All of them can be easily combined with each other and the possibilities of creating images are infinite.
You can put a tank top over it, T-shirts, fitted, loose, with or without sleeves, and so on dozens of options - it's a perfect solution for working out either in or out of the gym.
Sports bra for running - all bra offer breast support, thus it remains to choose the exact model that suits you. The choice is so great that even in a sports top you feel like in a comfortable and lightweight bra.
Shorts are a summer option for cardio and strength training. Longer or shorter, shorts are less hot and bring variety;
sweatshirts with long sleeves - for morning and evening exercise in the street, they will protect from sunlight, wind and humidity, solid models for the bottom layer in the winter outfit.
Running form, assembled from sportswear elements, effectively wicks moisture and sweat away, lets the air in to prevent the warming effect, not rubbing. Compression models additionally protect joints and muscles:
reduce pain in the limbs;
help to recover from intensive exercise;
prevent vascular and joint problems.
With the use of compression the muscles receive more nutrients, oxygen exchange and blood flow increase. Such clothes protect from vibration and shock during running and reduce the risk of injury.
Fabrics for running sportswear
Natural fabrics are good for low-intensity training, as they do not provide the same moisture drainage and microcirculation as modern high-tech fabrics. For sportswear, synthetic elastic materials are preferable. Why synthetics? In today's world they make amazing highly functional fabrics for sports wear, they are breathable, do not draw moisture and dry in a couple of hours.
Polyamide is durable and quick-drying and is recommended for the gym. It is air-permeable, highly elastic, doesn't wrinkle and maintains its color for a long time.
Nylon is a product of polyamide processing, suits especially good for outdoor activities. Long-wearing, holds its shape and fit. Designed to eliminate sweat effectively during intensive workouts. The nylon fabric is reminiscent of silk. In our online store, we present a collection made of recycled econyl nylon. These garments have a silky surface, they are cool and hold their shape perfectly.
Polyester is as smooth as silk to the touch. An antibacterial material that repels water and dries quickly, it regulates bodyheating because it does not let air in.
Elastane or lycra is a synthetic additive to the base fabric that gives the fabric elasticity and stretch. Lycra is a thin fabric with high strength. It wicks away moisture, is easy to wash and is air permeable. It’s also resistant to sunlight and does not wrinkle.
Jogging outfit is rarely made of only one kind of fabric - in each piece, the fabric is made up of many materials to ensure both a comfortable fit and heat regulation.
Explore, mix and match clothes and styles and go out in your favorite sports outfit, not to drive, but to run to the gym near the house.
