OMORPHO has launched ‘the world’s first micro-weighted apparel collection,’ entitled Gravity Sportswear. Each piece features the brand’s ‘MicroLoad’ – which is a series of small weights placed strategically across the body to help you push yourself even further during your usual workout. The brand was founded on the premise that lightweight apparel isn’t always better when it comes to training, and believes that the added resistance helps your muscles work harder and burn more calories. Research has shown that the collection can increase calorie burn by up to eight percent, power output up to eight percent and improve speed by up to three percent. Styles retail from $159 - $399 on site, with options available for both men and women.
