Thank you to lululemon and ShopStyle for sponsoring this post.
And, no, I am not talking about my underarms…. isn’t the point of working out to sweat it all out. To me there is no better feeling than sweating during a workout. When sweat pours off my face and down my arms, I feel like I’ve really accomplished something in life. That and the fact that its physical evidence of all the crap leaving my body – stress, anxiety, 5th grade math word problems, whiny little voices of kids who don’t want to finish their breakfast and can’t find their socks, deadlines, expectations, un-finished to-do lists…. all puddled up into little water droplets on the floor and out of my body. So yes, I make it a point to sweat on the daily. Pretty sure I am happier for it.
The downside to sweat is the inevitable fact that it gets on your clothes and we all know that wet clothes = embarrassing marks/uncomfortable icky feeling. lululemon challenged me to sweat in their new Everlux fabric – their fastest drying fabric ever. When work and exercise collide, consider that one less thing to put on my to-do list. My favorite sweaty workout combo is running followed by yoga. To me, this workout is the perfect balance of cardio and strength and zen. The sweat is just added bonus.
During my three-mile run, I build the heat. While it’s still not super warm in PA this time of year, I am definitely perspiring at the end of my workout.
The sweat really comes when I go inside for yoga when airflow is low and humidity tends to be high. So yes, getting sweaty is a given, but the Everlux fabric in the leggings in Everlux fabric are both super breathable and manage the heat for you so you can stay focused and comfortable in your workout.
I personally don’t mind being sweaty during my workouts, but I do mind feeling wet and cold afterwards. My favorite part of experiencing this fabric was that it dries so fast that you can literally go from studio to shopping (that is the saying, right?) without being drenched.
