Take Your
Workout to
the Next Level

The latest essentials you need right now

You don’t need a personal trainer or a gym membership to get good fitness results. But that's not to say you can't invest in your health. Upgrade your gear and you'll no doubt boost your performance and thus, see some real progress. And there's never been a better time to hunker down and get in shape. So to help you out, we've pulled together some recent innovations that are all but guaranteed to help you crush your fitness goals.


The Best New
Workout Gear

Smarter Shorts

The better the shorts, the better your workouts. At least that's what we've found. Which is why Ten Thousand worked with hardworking guys who spend time in and out of the water—including a former Navy SEAL and professional freediver—for their latest pair. The quick-drying training short has a secure pocket system and is resistant to saltwater and chlorine in order to last as long as possible. Other options we're wearing right now: The stretchy lined All Over Shorts by Olivers and Vuori's old school looking Banks style.

Air Conditioning

Exercising outdoors is all fun and games until the sun and heat wipes you out. This handy towel is engineered to stay cool and provide relief from sweltering temps. Just soak it in cold water and within minutes, the HydroFreeze Technology snaps into action and, unlike gel-filled cooling items, will keep its chill for more than two hours.

Body Weight Boost

You don't need big machines or even a set of dumbbells to get a great workout. But these humble discs can make any bodyweight move more intense—thus providing a bigger payoff. Push-ups, pikes, lunges and mountain climbers are all more punishing when you've got to control every movement.

Better for Biking

Cycling brand Rapha just revamped their line of sport sunglasses to feature hydrophobic, high-contrast lenses to ensure you've always got a clear eye on the road. The technology was designed specifically for cyclists, reacting rapidly to sudden changes in light. And these are handsome enough to wear even when you're not biking.

A Modern
Foam Roller

TRX reimagined the foam roller and came up with an innovative design that encourages deep muscle release and improves circulation through an innovative rocking motion. It's got three zones of intensity and an anti-slip surface to keep it right where you need it.

We all know the expression: “no pain, no gain.” But that doesn't mean you can't speed up the recovery process to help ease your discomfort and get you ready to workout again. And CBD has been scientifically proven to reduce inflammation in the body and help improve pain and mobility.

Cover Up

Zensah Performance Face Mask

Performance mask,
$18.99 by Zensah

If you’re working out near others (or in a gym), you'll need a mask. But most aren’t built with fitness in mind. Zensah’s quick-drying mask uses a highly-breathable knit with straps that go around your head for a secure fit. Or try a lightweight gaiter for an easy-on, easy-off solution.
