Keeping a New Year’s get-active resolution isn’t easy, and there’s data to prove it. Strava, the popular fitness app with a user base of more than 49 million, crunched its numbers and says that by January 19, 2020, most people will have given up (it even dubbed the date Quitter’s Day, a sad holiday indeed). Strava also used its data to advise on how to stick with it, with exercising with friends and getting out a minimum of three times per week topping the list. We’ll add another: get good workout clothes.
Running, cycling and hitting the gym are purposeful practices in seeking discomfort. Sure, you can do all of these in an old cotton tee, but why not manage as much of your physical unease as much as possible with something that fits, breathes and wicks away sweat? Right now, you can snag some of the best out there from Rhone, which is currently offering up to 50 percent off most of its gear.
