Everything you need to take your workout to the next level…

Kildare Village

Stand out from the latex-wearing, crop-top-sporting gym bunnies and embrace the design-driven yet function-first pieces and beauty buys that will improve even the most gruelling of HIIT classes. Because you’re in it for the impeccable, post-workout selfie, obviously.


When it comes to the activewear sitting closest to your body, breathable fabrics are a must, which is why racerback or tank tops with wide-cut backs with ergonomically positioned mesh inserts get an A+ for ventilation. A silk/wool-blend top is another must-try. While silk has a cooling effect in the cold, merino wool helps to heat the body up when needed. Try one for your next chilly power walk.

Compression leggings are nothing new, yet household names continue to jump on the high-tech bandwagon and give them a fashion-forward makeover. Why should you embrace them? Because they increase blood circulation, boost performance, make sure you’re working your muscles efficiently and also speed up recovery after you work out. Sounds like a win-win if we’ve ever heard one.

Gone are the days of the ‘nice to look at but not functional’ trainers. The perfect get-to-the-gym shoes are featherweight, flexible and supportive. And by supportive we mean great for running, sprinting, squatting, strength drilling… we could go on. Many sports brands technology ensures support around the entire foot or boast underfoot cushioning. Oh, and did we mention they’re easy on the eyes?
