Hurley “Dry Out” Hybrid Dri-FIT Shorts
How to Stay in Shape in Style!
Times are changing and the fitness world is no different. In fact, it is changing at such a rapid pace it can be hard to stay up to date.
Gone are the days of indoor, equipment-based workout routines, where people leave their office chair just to sit down on machines at the gym and perform a series of sets in a circuit.
People are figuring out that we have to move and sweat in many different ways that a piece of equipment just can’t provide. We need to move our body the way it was designed to move.
The new physical culture that is forming has a definitive style and flavor. Buzzwords including: functional, core, movement, and higher intensity have taken the place of aerobics and bodybuilding of the 80’s and 90’s. People are learning how to challenge themselves in a variety of ways that involve bodyweight movements, basic barbell exercises, kettlebells, and much, much more!
The beauty of this is that there are literally no more excuses. Wherever you are, whoever you’re with, whatever time it is, you can easily get your workout in.
They Are Listening!
Just as exercise methods have changed, so have what we choose to wear. Great companies are listening to this new audience and are offering stylish, technical, and practical workout wear. Items that can literally take you from your workout to the beach, and dry quickly enough to grab a bite with friends on the patio, and enjoy the last bit of sun the day has to offer.
