Product edit: Your gym kit update (part 2)

RW Rachel V Wall

Sometimes perspiration needs inspiration and what’s more inspirational than new gym gear? We’ve gathered the best in new athleisurewear and accessories so you can freshen up your kit and fire up your motive. 

1Fabletics Training Day Sleeveless Tee, £24 (£12 if you’re a VIP member)

Available in six colours, this training top is as elegant as it is efficient. Boasting a four-way stretch and the perfectly-considered armhole size, it’s designed to pave the way for a workout unhindered by the limitations of traditional gym tees. As is now typical of any new product in the world of athleisure, this tank benefits from sweat-wicking fabric that encourages breathability, reduces chafing and repels odour.

2Rhone Mako shorts, £65.99

Traditionally, training shorts are longer than running shorts (for obvious reasons) and they tend to feature pockets for the odds-and-ends you rattle around with on the gym floor. But Canadian brand Rhone is going for two fit little birdies with one high-tech stone having released their Mako Short. Designed with versatility in mind, they feature a designated phone pocket, a hidden zipper stash pocket – perfect for your house keys on a run – are quick drying and benefit from four-way stretch fabric and anti-odour technology. Available in four refined colours and creating the sleekest of silhouettes, style over substance is no longer a problem.

3Bn3th Classic Boxer Briefs

Luxury underwear brand BN3TH is on a mission to make the distractions of unsolicited wedgies a thing of the past, because “no one performs at their best when they’re adjusting”. Their patented MyPakage Pouch Technology is the secret to their success, boasting total, three-dimensional support down there. They also feature a Seamless Pucker Panel that lifts and enhances (you’re welcome), are chafe-free and thanks to moisture-wicking fabric, are delightfully breathable. To top it off, BN3TH are fiercely committed to protecting the environment and these boxers are created using Tencel, a fibre that requires much less water and energy to manufacture than traditional fabrics like cotton.

Lululemon

Workout socks might seem like unnecessary faff but today, the technology we can benefit from thanks to brands like lululemon might have you reassessing that philosophy. The Power Stride Crew Sock was designed for the active individual. It features the brand’s PerformaHeel 3D knit which provides durability and a comfy-cosy fit that won’t bunch-up or slide around.

5Rains Gym Bag, £59

A gym bag is a long term investment but they go through the ringer in their lifetime, so it’s advisable you choose something that will age with dignity. We love the Gym Bag by Rains. It’s a superb example of less is more and features the boxy style of a Gladstone bag, two short handles and a longer strap (for cross-body excursions) and, not surprisingly, waterproofing like no other.

6Adidas MyShelter Cold.Rdy Parka, £249.95

Leaving the house for a 7am HIIT class just got a whole lot easier. This new release from Adidas features all the traditional notes of a parka, with a 2020 streetwear twist. With a classic mid-thigh length, it effortlessly pairs insulated contemporary puffa-panels with a loose shoulder yoke that wraps around the torso and upper back to remind us that we’re dealing with a British institution – the inimitable parka. This is one of those pieces that makes you look put together, regardless of what you’ve thrown on underneath.
