Working out and sweating go hand in hand. Sweat is hard to avoid when pushing our bodies to the limits and will often leave us feeling sticky and uncomfortable. But what if we could turn that uncomfortable feeling into more energy to keep us going? Under Armour’s latest range, UA RUSH, does exactly that, by using mineral-infused fabric that recycles the body’s energy when working out. Natural minerals that have been broken down into active particles and blended together are then woven into the fibres that become part of the UA RUSH range. Designed to be worn while exercising, heat from the body is absorbed by the fabric and fed back as infrared energy. This recycled energy gives wearers increased localised circulation, which helps improve performance, energy and recovery. Now there’s no excuse not to work harder.

Fitbit have just released the Inspire HR, their easy-to-use, yet stylish new fitness tracker. With all the essential features, such as the exercise and sleep tracker, stopwatch, and Reminders to Move, the Inspire HR keeps tracking your fitness simple, without all the added extras. Coming in a sleek design and understated colours, taking things back to basics has never been so stylish.
