I love collecting workout gear. I think I speak on behalf of fellow fitness enthusiasts when I say that new workout gear motivates me to exercise. Personally, I treat myself to different kinds of gear every time I achieve my fitness goals—or when they’re on sale. Normally, I go for casual sports shirts because I can use them both to work out and to look good. These are the type of tees I don’t mind spending money on. Here are five dual-role tees that get the job done: 

A sports shirt for the heat

A fashion statement
Nike Jordan essential sleeve boxy T-shirt  

I vibe with crop tops because they’re always comfortable and never out of style. Nike’s Jordan essential sleeve boxy T-shirt is a bonus for me because, well, it’s a Michael Jordan wardrobe classic in crop top form. It’s made of pure lightweight cotton with a boxy shape that’s considered an easy fit. It’s something I’d wear for a run outside my village or to the gym.

Made of high-profile polyester and cotton fabric, Oakley’s sports tee will make you feel and look your best. If COVID never happened, this is the type of shirt I’d wear to the office because I know I can head straight to my workout after work hours without changing. It saves me from the hassle of bringing more workout gear. It also has hydrolix material management which keeps odor and bacteria off your shirt and keeps you dry and cool throughout the day.

A sports shirt for days when I don’t work out
Adidas Trefoil tee

The classic Adidas Trefoil tee is made of 92 percent cotton and eight percent elastane single jersey. It’s something I’d wear even if I don’t plan to work out because of its fit and style. The shirt can go with jeans, shorts, leggings. The brand considers the Adidas Trefoil tee fresh, fun and full of pride.

A sports shirt for training and travel
Lululemon All Yours short sleeve train

Lululemon’s All Yours short sleeve train is designed for sports and travel. It has abrasion-resistant fabric and no-stink zinc invisible technology that prohibits the growth of odor and bacteria on the fabric. It’s a ’fit I’d choose when I’m inside a plane or fitness studio since it can pass as a dressy casual blouse. The All Yours short sleeve train is also quick-dry and comfortable, perfect for those who are always on-the-go.
