*articles may contain affiliate links* In order to keep up with the ‘lil Burghers, the mama behind this site has to have gym wear that keeps up with her workouts. I was introduced to a solution through Arctic Cool.
Gym Wear for the Active Parent
Launched in 2016, Arctic Cool is a line of athletic wear. It is the fastest growing apparel company that incorporates cooling technology into its apparel. This clothing line is powered by HydroFreeze X, a fiber-based, cooling management system. HydroFreeze X moves moisture away from the skin and lowers the temperature of the fabric so you can keep active and keep cool.
Admittedly, I’m a science geek, so I loved learning more about how this technology from Arctic Cool works:
Arctic Cool developed Hydrofreeze X Cooling Technology for dynamic sweat wicking, dispersion, and supplemental evaporative cooling that occurs between the fabric and the skin. Hydrofreeze serves as the best of both fabric worlds while stepping onto a higher plane of apparel science.
The technology functions by using your body’s natural cooling process during high-energy activities. Sweat activates the fabric and is initially wicked away from your skin. Hydrofreeze then disperses the moisture throughout the clothing fibers, keeping all areas equally dry.
A cooling process occurs as a result of air moving across the surface of the fabric and interacting with the elements (such as wind) in motion. The physically heat-tempering result is tangibly felt across the surface of your skin and consequently regulates your body temperature.
This system keeps you hydrated by reducing sweat by keeping your body cooler. The moisture is expelled from the fabric during natural evaporation that occurs by interacting with the air.
My Thoughts on Arctic Cool
As a mom who runs and does CrossFit, I am no stranger to sweat. When I gave Arctic Cool a try, I was happy to find that my hot mess look wasn’t as bad as normal. Their gym wear is also stylish and not restrictive, which really helps with the self-confidence I’ve been building back up. For sizing, I did have to go with the XL – follow the size chart when you purchase!
You can check out more about this techy gym wear (the apparel line includes T-shirts, tank tops, and accessories for men and women) on the company’s website.
