Functional training just got sleeker thanks to this slimming, swimmable fabric.
The signature material of wetsuits has come ashore: Neoprene is finding itself in everything from rash guards and sports bras to gym bags and sneakers. And while scuba divers and surfers alike have long preached its power—insulation from chilly waters and quick drying, long-lasting capabilities—gym goers, too, are beginning to sport the fabric.
That’s because neoprene is less expensive than other breathable materials, comfortable, and it allows for all kind of movements—everything an athlete loves.
So consider the below welcome additions to your summer workout wardrobe, whether you’re running the shoreline or merely dreaming of it from the treadmill.
