A few months ago I started a simple routine that I can do at home, and it’s enabled me to find time to workout no matter my schedule. But even though no one sees me, I still like to dress the part as I find that I put more effort into the exercise if I feel like I’m dressed for it! Plus, part of starting and sticking to a routine is to be excited about doing it and nothing excites me more than new clothes (and bags… and jewellery…).
My routine involves jumping rope, resistance bands, 8-minute abs (the youtube video is pure gold) a few yoga moves, balance poses, and stretches. I don’t run. I don’t cycle. I don’t swim. 2XU is amazing if you do any of those activities though. It will breathe and move with you and provide you with a second skin. The materials are lightweight and stretchy yet very durable. They also provide compression to improve recovery and increase power.
I really liked the sports bra, which featured a flat sliding lock closure instead of traditional hooks. You can also connect the straps in the back to make a racer back top (i.e more support) or leave them unhooked for added flexibility.
The brand also does team-wear, available in custom colour combos so you can take on the MacLehose Trail with your colleagues looking like pros. Or if that’s not your bag, then at least you can show up to a dodge ball match or bubble soccer looking like you mean business! Either way, this brand is all about performance so you’ll be able to focus on the task ahead rather than the comfort of your outfit.
Whether you’re starting small like me or running and winning race after race, 2XU will have you outfitted for the occasion. 2XU clothes some of the top athletes in the world, including skiers, stand up paddlers, and trail runners! So if it’s performance and professionalism you are after, then you have found your new favourite brand in 2XU.
