How to Choose the Perfect Activewear for Your Workouts

How to Choose the Perfect Activewear for Your Workouts - VERZUS ALL Apparel

Activewear: where comfort meets performance

Are stinky, sweaty gym clothes making you feel uncomfortable when you workout? Choosing the right activewear can make all the difference in your workout and day-to-day activities. Wearing high-quality, comfortable, and performance-enhancing clothing not only helps you to feel more comfortable and boost your confidence, but it can even increase your workout effectiveness to help reach your goals. However, with so many options, it can be challenging to know what to look for when buying activewear.


Your options for activewear have become more innovative with each passing day. From moisture-wicking gym clothes to UV-protective shirts, there are a variety of options in textile technologies that can adapt to users’ everyday needs. So whether you're a dedicated gym-goer or a casual jogger, there is a function and style for you. 

Moisture-wicking fabrics keep you cool and comfortable

When working out, your body generates a lot of sweat, and that sweat can make you feel heavy and uncomfortable during your workout. That's where activewear made from moisture-wicking fabrics is crucial for an efficient, comfortable workout. Moisture-wicking fabrics are designed to draw sweat away from your skin, keeping you dry and comfortable, and helping your body stay cool by increasing airflow. You can look for materials like nylon, polyester, and spandex, but for the best results, look for an engineered fabric like VERZUS ALL’s DRYTX® technology.


DRYTX® moisture wicking fabric takes moisture wicking fabric to the next level of comfort. A revolutionary 4-way stretch fabric, DRYTX® is made with eco-friendly PFA (perfluoroalkyl aka forever chemicals)-free rapid vaporization technology. VERZUS ALL’s proprietary fabric is also used to manufacture clothing for some of the biggest names in athletic wear - and now we’ve made it available directly to consumers. Shop our selection of DRYTX® moisture-wicking athletic apparel like the Results tee for menResults tee for women, the Barely There sports bra, and more.

Anti-odor gym clothes fight B.O. with antimicrobial technology

Another common issue with workout clothes is that they can start to smell bad after repeated wears - especially if they're made from synthetic materials. Anti-odor gym clothes help combat this problem by using silver or other antimicrobial treatments, which reduces the growth of bacteria and helps prevent odor buildup. Though these materials are potent antimicrobials and can help keep your workout clothes smelling fresh for longer, they are very damaging to the environment. For instance, silver fibres leach into our ecosystems during the manufacturing and laundering processes, leading to the destruction of our ecosystems.  That’s why VERZUS ALL is dedicated to creating sustainable anti-odor gym clothes. Our innovative PROTX2® technology is the industry’s most powerful sustainable odor-fighting fabric. In fact, our PROTX2® fabric is so effective, it’s used to produce apparel for some of the biggest names in athletic wear.


Moisture wicking fabric for everyday wear, everyday comfort

Moisture-wicking tee shirts and tank tops can serve a purpose beyond a full workout and make the perfect undershirts for folks with physically demanding jobs where a little sweat is par for the course, such as factories, shipyards, construction sites, kitchens, or package delivery drivers. Anti-odor gym wear is a lifesaver for commuters who break a sweat while running to catch that morning train, and are a favorite for folks in the hospitality and restaurant industries, where even a little B.O. is out of bounds. 


If you spend a lot of time outdoors, UV protectant activewear is a must, especially for builders and tradespeople like roofers, who spend the majority of their day in the baking sun. Wear UV protectant clothing for a safe and comfortable workday.

UV-protection shirts for outdoor sports, running, and hiking


If you enjoy exercising outside, investing in UV-protective shirts is an excellent choice. UV-protective workout clothes typically have a UPF rating between 15 and 50, which means that they protect against ultraviolet radiation from the sun. Choose clothing made from tightly knit fabrics, like polyester and nylon, for added sun protection. Also, make sure the shirt is long-sleeved and covers your shoulders for optimal UV protection.


VERZUS ALL: the best UV-protection your workout can get


If you’re an outdoor enthusiast, it’s important to protect your skin from the sun’s harmful UV rays. Unfortunately, regular cotton has a very low SPF rating, so if you’re sweating outdoors, don’t count on cotton tees to get your back. VERZUS ALL has solved this problem with an innovative UVTX technology that filters out the sun’s most harmful rays, without weighing you down or making you sweat. Luckily, you don’t have to trade comfort for protection on your outdoor adventures from walking to hiking.  


With the VERZUS ALL Results T-Shirt, you can have it all. The Results tee combines UVTX UV-protection, with DRYTX® moisture wicking, and PROTX2® anti-odor technology, all in one incredibly comfortable, functional, and affordable workout shirt. This is the same materials used by giants of the fitness industry, available for the first time directly from the manufacturer keeping up with trends in athleisure fabric technologies. 

The right sports bra makes all the difference

The right sports bra can make or break a workout - it must be comfortable, supportive, and fit correct to stay in place when you’re on the move. It’s firstly important to make sure you're wearing the right size; as a sports bra that's too tight can affect your breathing and restrict your movement, while one that's too loose won't provide enough support. From there, you’ll be at your best without the discomfort of sweat or stink as you wear it during your workout.


Barely There: the ultimate sports bra for your workout

When it comes to choosing the right sports bras for your workout, there’s no better feeling than our Barely There sports bra when it comes to confidence and comfortability. With the  Barely There sports bra, our featherlight 4-way stretch fabric hugs your curves in all the right places for ultimate support, without feeling restrictive or too tight. Best of all, the Barely There sports bra is infused with PROTX2® and DRYTX® technology, to keep you cool, dry, and odor-free after even the toughest workouts. 

The essentials: shirts, shorts, joggers, and hoodies

Other performance athletic wear, like running shorts, jackets, and hoodies, are just as important as the clothes mentioned above. Running shorts should be lightweight, comfortable, and preferably have moisture wicking properties. A warm hoodie is essential, especially for runners and outdoor activities, but also to keep you warm on your way home after a sweaty workout. Jackets should be water-resistant, as well as breathable, to keep you dry and comfortable during outdoor workouts.
