WORDS BY DAISY SCOTT
When the New Year comes around, so do all those resolutions you made. To help you get into your new gym routine or inspire you to settle into those sets, we’ve compiled our list of performance apparel and accessories that make it easier to get into a brand-new habit.
So, from embossed yoga mats, abstract print activewear to boujee gym accessories. We’re giving you all the options so there’s no need to compromise on your style at the gym.
MODEST ACTIVEWEAR CHOICES
If you are looking for modest activewear, there’s no need to look any further than our collection. Discover the Abysse’s Clark long-sleeve wetsuit that has been crafted from a blend of recycled polyamide, suiting all outside activities, or look to the brand’s minimal-fuss Kino high-waisted leggings for inside classes.
Looking for something a little more elevated? MISBHV has all the options — from fitted Sport Active performance tops and matching logo seamless leggings that suit that HIIT class, to base layer ski tops and knitted balaclavas to suit your après ski style.
Naturally, if you are eager to bring your style to the treadmill then look to Emilio Pucci and Burberry activewear. What would we wear to that busy Pilates class? The Emilio Pucci Nuages-print jumpsuit or Burberry panelled checked stirrup leggings, obviously.
LOOK AFTER YOURSELF & THE PLANET WITH CONSCIOUS CHOICES
Now that you are looking after your body and health, it’s time for you to do the same with the planet. We all want to make a positive mark and an easy way to pave the way for a conscious future is by wearing activewear that looks after the environment too.
adidas by Stella McCartney has been a pillar for conscious activewear, with performance pieces made from post-industrial and post-consumer waste such as, plastic bottles. Once you’ve discovered your favorite style, you are one step closer to empowering the highest-impact performance with the lowest impact on the planet.
Wanting to discover activewear that delves into mindfulness and collaborating with your routine? Then LA-based activewear brand, Live the Process is exactly where you should be shopping. Reflecting a conscious lifestyle, each performance top and pair of leggings help you to perform at your best — thanks to its high-tech materials such as four-way stretch, breathability, heat reduction and moisture wicking. Our favorite pieces? The Ballet-tie top and Saros Henley performance playsuit.
ESSENTIAL AND (NOT-SO ESSENTIAL) GYM ACCESSORIES
Your gym routine is not complete until you have a sleek water bottle and a yoga mat that you can take with you everywhere. Find our essential (and not-so essential, but iconic) accessories here.
Your yoga flow looks great on this No Ka’ Oi debossed-logo square yoga mat— what’s even better, is that you have the choice of your favorite color, who’s to say you can’t have one for every type of flow. Or, if you prefer a slimmer silhouette with subtle padding discover the Isabel Marant Tapis yoga mat.
Stay hydrated with stainless steel HAY Sowden and S’well water bottles — not only are they chic, but they can also be used outside the gym too.
If you prefer to work out at home, then do so in style. Lift away all your worries with a Versace 10kg kettlebell or get active with Karl Lagerfeld skipping ropes and elastic bands. Who said sweating couldn’t be sophisticated?
