What We’re Wearing

To Get Active

Gearing up to work out for your mental health

Working out comes with many complexities—not feeling confident at the gym or having the desire to go for a run, but least of which is your body may not respond well the next morning. I'm guilty of both since I have a toddler now. Truth be told, it's insanely hard to carve time out for some much-needed exercise.

These days, working out looks a bit different for me. It's not about getting physically ripped (which isn't bad), but more about mental health. Getting some movement in releases those endorphins, helps sharpen my mind and just makes me feel good overall. So workout gear, for me nowadays, should double for errand runs and daily life occurrences.

In my kit, Asics sneakers are great for indoor and outdoor performance—the technology and materials behind the shoe make them great for taking on trail runs or doing deadlifts. They also look great with nice cargo pants or tech shorts. The ripstop tote is a must-have for all your EDC and is perfect to pack your gym items like a soft terry cloth towel for your cooldown or a huge Nalgene bottle to help keep you hydrated. Working out looks different for everybody. But when you look good, you're a whole lot more motivated. And remember that getting exercise for your mental wellbeing is just as important for your physical stamina.

Rethink
Your Cardio

According to Elite SRS, 15 minutes of jumping rope burns up to twice as many calories as a 15-minute run. Next time you don’t feel like running—just pick up a jump rope.
