After wearing lululemon for years, The Body Coach shares the best kit in his gym wardrobe that you need to buy 

 

Since buying his first pair of shorts in our Richmond store – his local – Joe Wicks has been hooked on lululemon training gear. And now that relationship has evolved from long-time admirer to new training partner, in his latest role as lululemon ambassador, the Body Coach has had plenty of time to test the collection and pick out his favourites.  

“I’ve never had a clothing partner before,” says Wicks. “I chose lululemon because they think like me, about the importance of mental wellbeing, but also because they make clothes that feel great. Not to mention the quality–it’s just incredible.” 

As you can imagine, a life as active as The Body Coach’s is the perfect proving ground for training apparel–and that includes the comfy, post-workout gear to recover in. We asked him to recommend the lululemon gear he can’t live without, to help you pick the kit worth adding straight to your basket.

“For me, these are all about movement. They’re so flexible and light, not to mention super comfy. They’ve got a wicked little zipper, so when I’m out running, I never have to worry my keys. I can wear them while I’m doing my yoga, my HIIT training and I just love being able to move. I hate restrictive clothing!”

“I love the training wear, but I never realised lululemon had such a big range of men’s lifestyle gear. The tracksuits, jackets and hoodies, like this one, are awesome and so comfortable to wear around the house.”

Made with Warpstreme™ fabric, these versatile joggers are good for anything from sofa days to backpacking weekends. And after Wicks revealed that getting outside in nature did wonders for his mental health during lockdown, it’s no surprise these made his favourites.

“This is one of the most comfortable things I’ve worn. It’s great for yoga, good for stretching but also when you’re at top speed on a treadmill. Plus, there’s no armpit chafe because it’s so soft and seamless. It’s all about comfort and versatility, I can do it all. This one’s the one!”

While Wicks’ loyalties lie with the Surge Short, he knows that different kit is designed for specific movements. The Surge Short will power you through those treadmill sprints, but our new LTT shorts are sweat-wicking, quick-drying, and have added Lycra® for more stretch. Plus, they’re made from abrasion-resistant mesh fabric to withstand the toughest workouts.

“The quality, the feel and the fabric are just unbelievable. Everything is so well-made and for this, the quality lasts forever–no matter how many times you wash them.”
