Fitness has become an indispensable part of our lives, especially throughout the pandemic when many turned to workouts like running, tennis, yoga and even roller-skating to alleviate the stress and boredom that comes with lockdowns. Whether you’re a hardcore fitness enthusiast or someone who just enjoys moving their body from time to time, chances are that looking cute and feeling comfortable in your workout clothes rank pretty high on your list of priorities. And brands are definitely aware of the need for stylish *and* functional workout gear.
Sustainable brand Allbirds just launched their first-ever activewear collection, while New York-based men’s activewear brand Ten Thousand has entered the Canadian market, offering styles that meet the demands of specific workout modalities such as water sports, compact sports, military training, and more. And we’d be remiss not to name check Reebok’s ongoing collaborations with Cardi B and Victoria Beckham, not to mention Lululemon’s limited edition SeaWheeze collection celebrating the transformative experience provided by running.
No matter what your favourite fitness routine consists of, we’ve got you covered. Here are some of our favourite new workout gear to buy — and break a sweat in — now.
