Over the years, many fitness fads have engrossed people to appraise active lifestyle; with some turning their fascination on fitness into a more serious undertaking.
These developments have given other industries the cue to follow the trend, including the fashion industry. With this comes the emergence of ‘athleisure,’ described as a sense of style that incorporates activewear with casual clothing to be worn in settings beyond fitness facilities, such as the workplace, school, and other rendezvous for social gatherings.
Revamping women’s wardrobe
Combining durability and comfort in a versatile way, the 2019 Activewear collection of global fashion retailer Forever 21 merges business casual attire and sportswear in one—making it easier for women to achieve their fitness goals without compromising their professional image.
The collection boasts of transitional styles with easy to mix and match colors, in the forms of lightweight jackets, comfy pullovers, high-waist bicycle shorts, drawstring joggers, and flattering sports bra tops among others. These clothing come with breathable, sweat-wicking fabric guaranteed to keep the women’s body dry, cool, and comfortable while attending to your fitness activities.
This women’s activewear becomes even more reliable with the backing of UAAP Season 81 volleyball stars Desiree Cheng and Kat Tolentino, playing for the DLSU Lady Spikers and Ateneo Lady Eagles, respectively.
Innovating men’s footwear
Designed with an impact absorption and energy return technology, Under Armour has introduced Curry 6, tagged as the most innovative basketball shoe to match high-intensity performance on court like that of a three-time World Champion and two-time NBA MVP—Stephen Curry.
The team behind the newest footwear has arrived to a study that shows Curry as one of the NBA players who run the most while in a game; running about 2.3 miles per match. The team has broken down Curry’s movements, how he moves into his shots, how he accelerates and decelerates, his jumps, and the production of force that come with those movements.
The pair of shoe, thus, is good for running as much as for basketball, with its impressive product DNA that includes cushioned, close-to-ground feel and explosive return, lightweight directional strength, and superior traction among others.
The Curry 6 has also been revealed as an honor to the most iconic landmarks of Okaland, the home city of the Golden State Warriors.
The incessant blooming of the fitness industry brings fancy fads in the market, and despite their opulence, these are definitely worth the money. Just make sure not to break the bank.
