What to Wear to Workout in Summer

Get the most out of summer workouts with Goodmove: expertly designed activewear that performs.

Statement making sportswear

The right gym clothes can power up your sweat session to the next level, especially in the summer, when many exercise lovers worry about overheating and chafing. Luckily, our Goodmove range is expertly designed with clever details and hi-tech fabrics that always perform. Just look at our vibrant cobalt blue crop top and matching leggings, which are both made from a moisture wicking, quick-drying fabric to keep you feeling fresh. Added stretch and a seamless silhouette means you’ll be comfy, no matter how intense the run or HIIT class. You can also find a great range of sports trainers available at M&S through our partnership with The Sports Edit, including Hoka, Veja, and Asics.

Smart layers for summer showers

As much as we cross our fingers and hope for a summer scorcher, the reality can be somewhat different. If you’re a keen runner, you’ll need clever layering pieces that mean you can lace up your trainers and head out even if the heavens open. Try this hooded running jacket, which is made from an ultralight weight fabric and has an adjustable hood. It’s showerproof, thanks to our Stormwear technology, and has reflective trims to help keep you safe when running at night. Wear with our Go Move cropped gym leggings, which have a handy zipped back pocket for all your bits and bobs. Or if you prefer shorts, our woven layered gym shorts are breathable and comfortable on hot days.

Walk it off

Summer is a great time to get outside and enjoy the scenery on a long walk. These relaxed fit walking trousers are just the ticket for hikes or dog walks – they’re super comfortable and are waterproof in case of bad weather. Wear with this pure cotton t-shirt: we love the cool relaxed fit and flattering scoop neckline. If we’re lucky enough to get a heatwave, swap the trousers for our trekking shorts, which have an elasticated waist for comfort and practical zip pockets. Keep your feet supported mile after mile with our lace-up walking boots, which have a sturdy shock absorbing sole.

We’ve got everything you need for a great workout, including gym bags and water bottles. Never forget your gym card or sweat towel again with this Goodmove tote bag, which has plenty of pockets for keeping your essentials organised. Stay hydrated with a stainless-steel water bottle from Chilly’s, which keeps your drink cool and refreshing. Stay safe in the sun when exercising outside during the summer with some Goodr sunglasses – they’re made with no slip and zero bounce so they stay in place even if you’re running and have UVA protection. Yogis will love our yoga mat bag, which makes your yoga mat easy to carry and even has extra space for towels and blocks. Take care of any post workout redness with Ren’s Redness Relief Serum, which soothes and calms your skin.
