With spring in the air, we are patiently waiting for this self-isolation to end. While working from home, this is an excellent opportunity to get organized and get your spring clothes out. Like many, we are really excited about going back to the gym and yoga and catching up with our friends. It is also the perfect opportunity to update our workout wear and have fun. This is all about wearing Canadian apparel proudly and supporting our brands from coast to coast. Here are eight fresh Canadian athletic pieces you can work out in with style.

Colour blocking always gives a little extra to our outfits. This gorgeous tank from RYU (Respect Your Universe) has crazy technical details for movement to ensure nothing pops out. We have to call out the fabric, Polygiene, which is a recycled silver fabric finish that helps reduce the growth of odour-causing bacteria and keeps garments smelling fresher for longer. This Vancouver brand’s mission statement is to “build gear that’s tough enough for the harshest workouts and beautiful enough to fit your life outside the gym.”
