We know sticking to your New Year’s Resolution isn’t the easiest thing in the world, especially when you don’t have the proper gear for the occasion. If you find yourself in this catch-22, we have the perfect solution — well, to be specific, lululemon does. The world-famous performance brand is adept at crafting all sorts of garments and accessories across the board fit for virtually any form of workout. So, with that in mind, we narrowed down the most essential pieces to pick up based on your go-to exercise routine.
Fast and Free Short Sleeve Shirt
Best for Biking: While this anti-stink-treated shirt is primarily made with running in mind, it operates just as well on two wheels. The slim-fitting Fast and Free shirt is made using lululemon’s proprietary Breathe Light mesh, a sweat-wicking, quick-drying material that’s lightweight enough to keep you comfortable at high speeds.
Waterproof Rain Shell Hiking Pant
Best for Hiking: lululemon’s venture into hiking apparel shouldn’t have come as much of a surprise considering its garment engineering prowess, and these pants are one of the new line’s most functioning pieces. Composed of the brand’s seam-sealed Glyde fabric, the Waterproof Rain Shell Hiking Pant is breathable, comfortable, and capable of fighting off unwarranted rainfall.
Commission Relaxed-Tapered Golf Pant 30″
Best for Golf: As its name suggests, lululemon’s abrasion-resistant, Commission Relaxed-Tapered Golf Pant features a traditional tapered fit, so they’re just as easy to wear once you leave the course. For enhanced performance, the bottoms are rounded out with a ventilated gusset for optimal freedom of movement and a trio of pockets, including a drop-in compartment ideal for golf tees.
Surge Warm Half-Zip
Best for Running: This performance-tailored, half-zip sweater is composed of lululemon’s signature Rulu fabric, so it’s quick-drying, soft to the touch, and surprisingly lightweight, considering how warm it is. Plus, it’s available in a trio of subtle colors that’ll still look good with all your other gear.
Both Ways reversible Bucket hat
Best for Swimming: Surf season is officially upon us, deeming this bucket hat the perfect piece of shoreside gear to have on hand. That said, it operates just as well after a refreshing dive in the pool or walk on a sunny day, thanks to its quick-drying, sweat-wicking composition.
Metal Vent Tech Polo Shirt 2.0
Best for Tennis: Where would we be without lululemon’s remarkably versatile Metal Vent Tech tops? This particular option comes in the form of a traditional polo, making it ideal for hitting the tennis course and reducing chafing while you perfect your forehand. Best of all, the breathable mesh top features nearly 100% recycled polyester, so it’s sustainable, sufficient, and sleek.
License to Train Tight
Best for Training: This pair of training tights is made of the brand’s trusty Luxtreme fabric, paving the way for low-friction support, breathability, and maximum comfort from top to bottom. They even feature a hidden pocket for your smaller gear and silicone grippers in the inner waistband to keep them in place mid-workout.
Nulu Relaxed-Fit Yoga Pants
Best for Yoga: Closing this guide out with a piece that lululemon is arguably best known only makes sense, as few other brands can hold a candle to these high-end yoga pants. Composed of the same breathable Nulu fabric that we mentioned earlier, the virtually weightless bottoms are as breathable as it gets and feature added Lycra fiber for shape retention through every stretch you make.
