The designers of 2XU, have collaborated with yoga-instructors, to create a unique selling proposition for the brand, their ICE X yoga sweatpants. These trousers work like compression suits and are contoured to the wearer’s body shape.
The PWX perforated fabric helps with the release of hot air, in more extended sessions of practice. Moreover, the non-slippery surface provides a snug grip which makes these trousers the perfect outfit for yoga.
2. Climachill Tech By Adidas
Adidas has just launched its latest compression wear shorts made from an innovative material called Climachill. Climachill has the capacity of wrapping the muscles snugly and provide extra support, all while blocking sweat to keep you feeling cool and fresh.
After trying them for a couple of weeks, I can say that Adidas Climachill is the perfect outfit for gym-training and/or jogging.
3. Heated Jacket By Polo Ralph
These body-fit heated jackets feature temperature adjustment via the smart sensors installed in them. The system works by intelligently monitoring your body temperature, knowing when you feel hot or sweaty.
The temperature drops automatically before you begin to feel hot, and it falls when you think the body starts to warm up. Great for those transition moments inside/outside the gym.
4. Hypercool Max Tight By Nike
If you are into super marathons, triathlons, decathlons or any other kind of longtime activities outside under the soon, then this might be the best product for you.
Hypercool Max Tight pants have a thin polymer film designed to protect the body from UV rays and infrared heat, especially on the knees and shins while cycling.
The pants are also excellent at preventing next day muscle fatigue and numbness by increasing and maintaining blood circulation.
5. FlashDry Technology By The North Face
Based on FlashDry technology, this winter jacket is unique in its capacity of protecting from the sun while also being soft and smooth at the touch.

There are other products as well like smartwatches that track your exercise routine and provide feedback, calorie bands, goggles for relaxing and concentrating vision and many others. These products will bring you closer to achieving your personal sports goals.
