8 Must-Have Pieces That Will Keep You Cool During Even the Sweatiest Workout
Finishing a workout covered in sweat can be considered a badge of honor. Flushed cheeks, drenched hair, and stained clothes are all signs that you really went hard.
Still, pushing through an intense virtual Spin class or strength training session while sweat is dripping off your nose isn't always the most pleasant experience. You need moisture-wicking, lightweight gear to stay cool, calm, and collected. Stock up on these must-have fitness items, and see how much better your workout sessions get.
Thermoflask Double Stainless Steel Insulated Water Bottle
Staying hydrated is important any time you exercise. Keep an insulated water bottle ($18) nearby so you can rehydrate with deliciously cool water in between sets.
UA Armour Mid Crossback Print Mash Up Sports Bra
Your sports bra can make or break a workout: If it doesn't fit right, you'll be fidgeting with the straps and adjusting the band the whole time. Seek out a comfortable, breathable option that fits you just right, like this sweat-wicking option ($40).
HeatGear® Armour Printed Ankle Crop
Super-light leggings are also a must — you don't want to feel like your clothing is making you hotter than you need to be. These cropped leggings ($50) with a pop of color from the accent print dry insanely fast, so you won't feel sweaty for long.
invisibobble Original Traceless Spiral Hair Ties
Keeping your hair out of your face and off the back of your neck is also key. These spiral hair ties ($7) have an impressive grip, but won't yank out your hair, either.
