The Ultimate Gear You Need to Boost Your Workouts
Wherever you take training. Stay protected. Stay active. Stay safe.
Training is all about pushing yourself further and harder than your last session. Whether you’re lifting, squatting or lunging, you’re giving yourself a handicap if your kit isn’t up to scratch. So, what’s so important about what you wear?
Performance gear is designed specifically to give you an edge during your training. Whether it’s keeping your body cool or your feet stable, reaching your targets is easier with the right gear. To help you find training gear that’ll give you a leg up on the competition, DW Sports have created a list of the best performance clothing and accessories available today.
With Nike’s extensive selection of training gear and Under Armour teaming up with none other than Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson for their new range, these two sporting powerhouses are showing the rest how it’s done. From shoes to shorts, this kit will take your workouts to the next level.
Under Armour Performance Gear
When you’re busy training hard, you need gear that can take as much punishment as you can. The men’s Under Armour Project Rock 2 training shoes have been meticulously designed to provide you with more power behind every step. UA HOVR™ technology creates a ‘zero-gravity feel’ to help eliminate impacts, while compression mesh locks in and contains UA HOVR™ foam to give back as much as you put in. Perfect for pushing yourself, the shoe’s outsole contains a UA Tribase to maximise ground contact and a stability chassis provides incredible support for heavy lifting.
This t-shirt is finished with a loose, fuller cut, designed to prevent any distractions during exercise. It’s also made from a super-soft cotton-blend fabric to provide excellent comfort that’ll last all the way through to your final set.
When you’re busy smashing your goals, you need quality gear that can keep up with the pace. The men’s Project Rock shorts by Under Armour are built with performance in mind, ensuring nothing stands in your way.
Made from Under Armour’s HeatGear® fabric, these compression shorts will keep you warm and fit like a second skin, while sweat-wicking fabrics make sure that sweating won’t stand in your way. The 4-way stretch-woven fabric won’t let you down either, being tough, lightweight and providing you with better movement in every direction.
What better way to add a finishing touch to your workout gear than with the Project Rock cotton cap from Under Armour? Made from 1005 polyester, the durable, stretch-worn fabric provides maximum comfort.
Designed with a pre-curved visor and an unstructured front, the cap conforms to the shape of your head for a sleek, low profile fit. Plus, the ultra-soft sweatband and inner lining allow for greater stretch and breathability as you work up a sweat.
Nike Performance Gear
Nike Women’s Metcon 5 Whether you prefer powerlifting or get your kicks out of cardio, the Metcon 5 training shoe from Nike is designed to help you power through every workout. The diverse cushioning foam is firmer beneath the heel for a secure feel, yet softer in the forefoot to help cushion and support high-impact moves and keep you light on your feet. With a textured print upper for lightweight durability and directional traction on the outsole, you’ll be able to quickly adapt to whatever your workouts have to throw at you. You can even give yourself an extra burst of power with the removable Hyperlift insoles for when you need to power through that last tough set.
Combine effortless, minimalistic style and practicality with this Nike Pro Veneer cropped tank. From heavy lifting to gruelling cardio sessions, stay comfortable and stylish during even the toughest training.
Equipped with Nike Dry-FIT technology, this cropped tank wicks sweat away from your body to keep you dry during intense workouts. There’s even a discrete, lightweight mesh on the back, meaning you’ll always stay cool and collected when your training heats up.
Never choose between performance and style again, thanks to the Nike Pro Warm Hollywood tights. With targeted power mesh panels, subtle Nike swoosh detailing and two-tone colours with a glitter-look finish, these leggings are sure to make a statement.
Comfort is at the forefront of the design, with a tight, body-hugging feel and sweat-wicking fabric to keep you dry as you’re giving it your all. With a combination of a warm base layer and breathable mesh, you can keep warm during early-morning workouts and stay cool when your training starts to heat up.
If comfort is your priority when training, look no further than the Futura bra from Nike. Perfect for medium-impact exercise, this non-padded sports bra is designed with sweat-wicking technology to ensure you stay dry and comfortable when training. No workout is off the table, as the open racerback design gives you a full range of movement while the flat seams and elasticated underbust create the perfect snug fit. Featuring the bold Nike Futura logo, this sports bra is the perfect addition to any workout look.
When you’re busy giving it your all, you don’t want to be held back by your kit. This is where the Nike Dri-Fit Elastika tank comes in. With a longer back hem than most tank tops, you’re guaranteed greater coverage, so you can stay focused on your fitness. Crossed elastic straps stay secure to your body as you train while providing exceptional airflow to help keep you cool. If that wasn’t enough, this tank is made from sweat-wicking materials, ensuring you stay dry and comfortable at all times.
