We Took This New Activewear Line For A Spin—Literally



I avoid cardio workouts—I’m more into quick and heavy weights session versus a prolonged state of heavy breathing and even heavier sweating. But when I do cardio, I want it to be worth my time. Which is why I welcome the pain (and endorphins) brought about by a good spinning class—it’s fast, efficient, and targets the whole body.

A spinning class, however, requires mobility in your choice of workout wear. Personally, I prioritize function and style without sacrificing comfort. Specifically, I need my pieces to wick away sweat as I absolutely detest the feeling of wet fabric sticking to your drenched body. Lucky for me, superior moisture-wicking technology and comfort come together in Old Navy’s newest line of activewear.

Old Navy Active offers a range of performance wear fit to your style and performance needs.

During a spinning class in Electric Studio, we got the chance to take Old Navy Active pieces for a test run. At once lightweight and heavy duty, Old Navy Active made sure we do more than just break a sweat—breathable fabrics engineered with innovative stretch technology ensure movement, performance, and comfort. Most importantly, it’s activewear that’s hardworking as us. I prefer workout wear to be tight as my body feels more supported this way, so I opted for a Go-Dry tank top from the women’s line. To say that it kept me dry and comfortable would be an understatement as you wouldn’t have thought I sweated buckets looking at me after the one-hour ride. There’s none of that disgusting feeling post-workout that makes you want to run straight to the shower and out of your clothes. It’s almost like I didn’t work out at all—save for my drenched hair and spent energy.
