How to dress for summer at your local fitness centre
- by admin
Fitness centres in Australia are set to open their doors in August with new gear including an “alternative to sweatpants” that’s designed to help you cool down.
The new clothing is designed to encourage you to keep your body warm during your summer, and will come in three different styles.
The first is a jacket which is designed for warm-weather days.
The second is a sleeveless top with a “giant” hood that covers the whole upper torso and is meant to prevent your body from overheating.
The third is a light jacket with a hood and hood hem that is intended to prevent heat loss and keep you cool during the hot summer months.
While the new clothing isn’t designed for long-term wear, it is designed with the intention of helping people cool down during the summer months in Australia.
The “alternate to sweat pants” is the “cooling-in-the-heat” style that can help people cool off quickly and efficiently during a heatwave.
“These are designed to work in a variety of environments, including hot humid days,” Dr Sarah MacNeil, from the Australian Institute of Sport, said.
“The cooling-out-in effect of these is actually quite important during summertime, because when you go to sleep and get dressed, your body starts to release some of that heat energy.”
What is the alternative to sweat pajamas?
For those who want to keep warm, the “alternated to sweat” jacket can be worn with a shirt underneath to keep you cooler.
“This type of jacket works well with sweatpants, but it is also ideal for people who like to cool off with a jacket, like gym members or sports enthusiasts,” Dr MacNeil said.
In a similar way to the “globe”, the “iceberg” style of jacket can help keep you comfortable during the heat, as well as to cool you down during your commute.
“It’s designed for people in cold weather and has a hood, so the hood is completely covered,” Dr McIntosh said.
A study published in the journal Physical Therapy Research and Applications showed that those who used an alternative to their usual sweatpants on the beach had lower body temperature, reduced body sweating and reduced body heat loss than those who didn’t.
“One of the major benefits of wearing a jacket while walking in the sun is that it helps you maintain your body heat, and this is very beneficial in a hot environment such as summer,” Dr James O’Donnell, of the Queensland University of Technology, said in a statement.
“For a variety to be beneficial in summer, it should be made of good materials such as polyester or breathable material.”
Dr O’Brien said it was important to remember that the alternative garments would be designed to keep the wearer cool in hot conditions, so they were not designed to be worn over sweatpants.
“They’re not designed for daily use in any way, shape or form,” Dr O’Connor said.
