Keep your cool when exercising in warm weather with our complete fitness wardrobe, from breezy cropped tops to moisture-wicking leggings
Cropped tees and vest tops
Don’t let hot weather get in the way of your fitness goals. Instead, give your workout wardrobe a summer upgrade, starting from the top by swapping long sleeves for cropped tops and vests featuring clever tech to keep you cool during even the sweatiest of workouts. Lightweight mesh fabric with sweat-wicking, quick-dry properties means this relaxed-fit short-sleeved top is a comfortable option for the summer months. This cute cropped top is made from lightweight, breathable fabric and comes in four summery colours, while the relaxed fit means it won’t cling. If you like to wear a vest when you move, this fitted vest top gets five-star reviews for its great cut and breathable fabric that makes it suitable for yoga, running and gym workouts.
You can still wear sports leggings and stay cool as you break a sweat during summer workouts by choosing styles made from breathable, moisture-wicking fabric. Choose design elements with a ventilation benefit such as mesh panels, and add cropped styles to your summer activewear stash. Our high-waisted, moisture-wicking Go Train leggings feature mesh ventilation panels to keep you cool and dry while you work out, even on the hottest of days. Cropped sports leggings bridge the gap between full-length styles and shorts. Our marl grey and black Go Move cropped moisture-wicking leggings keep you cool and dry and feature a drawstring waist, plus a waistband and a leg pocket. Not only do our leggings look and feel great, they come in an extensive size range from 6 to 24 in most styles.
From a 5k run around your local park to a hardcore HIIT session in the back garden, gym shorts are a key piece of kit if you’re a fan of a sweaty summer workout. These double-layered shorts are designed for running, but would provide plenty of coverage for a HIIT class too. Combining sweat-wicking inner shorts with breathable outer shorts (both with essential stretch for ease of movement), the flattering high-waisted design features a drawcord waist for a comfortable, customisable fit. Bonus: the secure, zipped pocket that’s big enough for keys and a phone. With four colours to choose from, including goes-with-everything black and bold cobalt blue, there’s sure to be a pair that catches your eye.
Slick sports bras
Your breasts require the same level of support for summer workouts as they do in colder weather, but as temperatures rise, a strappy style can feel more comfortable than a cropped-top design that covers more skin. This strappy sports bra, which comes in pink and a navy print, looks great alone or under a cut-out vest top. Designed to fit snugly, it provides support for medium-impact movement, making it perfect for an online power yoga class, a Zoom dance-off or an outdoor gym workout. Made from breathable fabric with moisture-wicking and quick-dry properties to keep you cool and dry while you move, it features removable cups and there’s even a small zip pocket that fits keys or a bank card.
Breathable socks and trainers
Keep your feet sweet during workouts by including socks and trainers featuring breathable fabrics and clever technology in your summer fitness wardrobe. Both the Goodmove lace-up trainers and Goodmove lace-up knitted trainers are crafted with breathable, naturally antibacterial Tencel for fresh feet throughout your workout. Save your soles with our great-value sock packs. This two-pair pack of ankle socks features antibacterial properties to keep feet smelling sweet, with seam-free design for comfort and moisture-wicking, quick-dry fabric to keep feet feeling fresh. This three-pair pack of footsie socks comes with cushioning for extra support when you’re on the go, plus antibacterial properties and Freshfeet tech to keep feet fresher for longer.
