Be A Dance Machine
Work the chic-at-exercise look à la Sonoya Mizuno. You need an active gear that keeps the cool in, and kicks the heat out. UNIQLO’s AIRism technology will take care of that!
UNIQLO’s AIRism range
Choose from Tank Tops and Racerback Bra Tops then pair it with the ultra-comfy Cropped Pants and you are ready to go. For cooler weather, simply add on the UV Cut Mesh Full Zip Hoodie, with moisture-wicking technology that keeps you feeling fresh and dry while sweating it out. It also protects yourself against sunburn.
When You Are On The Move
Love your night runs? Slip on the Light Pocketable Parka, which comes with convenient little loops for your earphones. This water-repellent layer-on is also light and easy to carry around – simply throw over in the event of light rains. For the occasional hike, shield the sun with the UV Cut Mesh range of hoodies, which comes with a high collar and hood with drawstrings to tighten the coverage. Should there be light showers, simply reach for your pocket-sized UV Light Pocketable Parka and layer over.
Do Your Yoga Moves Comfortably
As you focus on building core body strength, maneuvering graceful postures and working the mat – the last thing you want is a pair of floppy pants inhibiting your movements, breaking the flow. Focus properly with a pair of Ankle Leggings, which wraps around flatteringly, paired with streamlined accent strips at the sides to exude sporty vibes.
Go Matchy-Matchy With Him
Androgynous dressing is the new chic. Bond over a good workout with him while decked in perfect synchronised flair. Don the loosely cut and light-as-air Round Neck Short Sleeve T for her, and the flattering Dry EX V Neck Short Sleeve T-Shirt for him. Finish with the AIRism Sweat Pants and Dry Stretch Active Shorts respectively and you are ready to conquer.
Workout Secrets You Might Not Know
• Crunches do not produce flat abs; planks and bridges do a far better job.
• Interval training works, even if it’s just a routine of alternating two-minute walks with two-minute runs.
• Your body needs rest days too, even if you’re just a casual gym goer.
• Yoga improves strength and flexibility, but does little to burn the calories.
• Women have it way harder to build bulk. So ladies, fear those weights no more!
