We’re now two thirds of the way through 2020. At the year's start, Strava, the popular fitness app with a user base of more than 49 million, crunched the numbers, and identified January 19th as the day most people would give up on those ambitious get-fit New Year's resolution (it even dubbed the date Quitter’s Day, a sad holiday indeed). But Strava also used its data to advise how to stick with it, with getting out a minimum of three times per week topping the list. We’ll add another motivating factor: good workout clothes.
Running, cycling and hitting the home gym are purposeful practices in seeking discomfort. Sure, you can do all of these in an old cotton tee, but why not manage your physical unease as much as possible with something that fits, breathes and wicks away sweat? Right now, you can snag some of the best out there from Rhone, which is currently offering up to 70 percent off a ton of items as part of its ongoing Labor Day Sale.
Granted, a number of sale items — like dress shirts and polos and pants — aren’t workout-friendly. But scroll down a bit and you’ll find active gear aplenty. Need a place to start? Try the Reign Long Sleeve (
$78 $60), 6″ Swift Knit Short ( $68 $48) or 8" Guru Short ( $78 $39) — and prove to Strava that you aren’t a datapoint.
