Performance enhancing fitness gear coupled with high-spec protective features to boost your workouts is achievable with the right know-how.
To give you a real insight, I have selected a few of my favourite fitness gear training pieces: Adidas running shoes and ProGripsUK for customised Pro workout fitness gear and training support accessories, as used by elite athletes and bodybuilders.
Adidas Climachill Cosmic Boost Running Shoes (RRP £109.99) are super-lightweight with a comfy glove-like fit. I am wearing a pair in grey and white during gym workouts and cardio sessions (as pictured).
The more you run the more you’ll love their comfortable fit when pounding the pavement outside. Design features include a boost midsole that returns energy to every step, and a breathable Primeknit upper for a flexible and supportive fit.
Mizuno Biogear Tights are designed to provide stability and compression in equal aplomb and feature a tripartite of technologies utilized to boost performance.
Constructed with PowerMesh material, the BG8000 Mizuno Biogear Tights (RRP £89.99) provide pelvis support to stabilize the running posture and knee support to reduce the vibration and misalignment of joints, working synonymously with PowerMesh, Dynamotion™ Fit patterning for a better anatomical fit. Contouring to the shape of your body, a sports-specific fit combined with an excellent range of motion is granted to the wearer.
Support with cropped sports bra tops are a must-have piece in your gym workout wardrobe. The IceBreaker Sprite Women’s Racerback Support Bra’s lightweight construction is owed predominantly to its high Merino wool content. Naturally odour-resistant and breathable, this fabric has been interwoven with elastane to enable the garment to adhere to the contours of your body without impeding movement or comfort. A non-slip, racerback design and vibrant palette finish the garment in a stylish, sporty aesthetic. RRP £44.99
ProGrips UK are a unique sportswear brand who supply elite athletes, competitive bodybuilders and cross-fit enthusiasts customised protective workout accessories, belts, grips, wrist and knee belt support aids and Pro gym wear.
Luxe-effect exclusive designs including The Barbelle Babe and SuperHero ProGrips collection give you awesome grip and super cool style. So wearing the right workout accessories during training sessions can also help boost performance and even hit P.B’s.
As an elite-level bikini athlete I wear ProGrips UK accessories and Pro Gymwear when training and adore the Barbell Babe pink and black hand grips and support bands.
The grips protect my hands from hard skin formation and ease the burn pain of lifting weights. Doing 5 sets of 12 reps means my hands ‘burn’ where I grip the weights. Hard skin is reduced and prevented when wearing the hand grips.
The ProGrips Classic features a 2mm thick leather pad with 4 finger loops to keep the pad in place. These are perfect for all round use and a great choice overall when lifting weights. Sizes start from XS to Large.
Add the personal touch and customise your workout with a ProGrips hoodie, grips and support belts or buy ready-made workout anthem-type statements on the collection pieces.
