Gear Up for Adventure: Choosing the Right Clothes for Summer Fitness

June 1, 2024

Summer is a perfect time to embrace outdoor fitness activities and gear up for adventure. Whether you’re hitting the pool, jumping on a spin bike, or stepping into a high-intensity Killer B workout, choosing the right clothing is essential for comfort and performance. Let’s explore some summer fitness clothing staples to help you make the most of your adventures at Swell Santa Barbara.

Embrace Breathable Fabrics

Clothing made from breathable fabrics is key. Look for moisture-wicking materials that allow sweat to evaporate quickly, keeping you cool and comfortable during workouts. Opt for workout tops and bottoms made from lightweight, breathable fabrics like polyester blends or technical performance fabrics. These materials are designed to keep you dry and comfortable, even during intense summer workouts!

Protect Yourself from the Sun

With over 300 days of sunshine a year, Santa Barbara’s always aglow. But as much as we love to lounge in the warmth, it’s crucial to protect the skin from harmful UV rays. In addition to daily sunscreen application, consider incorporating sun-protective clothing into your summer fitness wardrobe. Look for athletic and swim attire with built-in UPF (Ultraviolet Protection Factor) to shield your skin from UV radiation. Don’t forget to wear a wide-brimmed hat and sport lightweight, UV-protective sunglasses to shield your eyes during outdoor workouts.

Stay Cool and Supported

Supportive clothing is essential for activities like spin classes or high-impact workouts. Maximize comfort and performance with sports bras that have good compression and leggings or shorts with a comfortable waistband. Keep feet cool and dry with well-ventilated athletic shoes—a must for high-impact movements. For aquatics classes, look for swim attire that fits well and provides adequate coverage. Whatever your activity of choice, make sure your athletic wear can keep you cool and meet the movement demands.

Versatility is Key

Invest in pieces that can transition seamlessly from your workout to other summer activities. A stylish pair of workout shorts can double as a comfortable option for a post-workout stroll on the beach, while a moisture-wicking tank top can be layered under a light jacket for a casual evening out. Athleisure wear is a great way to maximize your wardrobe and ensure you’re prepared for summertime adventures.
