After months of waiting, summer has made its much-appreciated return. With warmer weather creeping its way back into the our forecasts, there’s a revisited taste of adventure in the air. And just like a sun-soaked cookout, nothing screams “summertime” quite like being active outdoors. Thankfully, the month of June comes bearing a fresh assortment of go-to essentials for every fitness discipline.
From tech-savvy accessories, to trail-ready footwear, fitness-focused fuel and more, June has everything you need to get your workouts on track — or started, for those late to realizing their New Years resolutions. So, at the halfway point of 2022, let’s dive in to see the latest and greatest in the fitness realm.
Liquid IV Hydration Multiplier+ Probiotic Kombucha
To get the most out of your summer fitness fun, you need to stay hydrated, right? Well, Liquid IV delivers, combining the brand’s rapid absorption technology with the gut-healthy power of probiotics in the all-new Hydration Multiplier+ Probiotic Kombucha.
Boasting 1 billion CFU probiotics per travel-ready pack, this powdered kombucha can help you stay refreshed while also taking care of your personal microbiome. The natural tart green apple flavor is the perfect tasty addition to turn your bland bottle of water into a cool refreshment for any summer training session.
Price: $24.99 (14-pack)
Hoka One One Tecton X
Want to shake up your summertime running routine? Take a new route with trail running’s latest innovation. Featuring two parallel carbon fiber plates, the Hoka Tecton X is the brand’s latest addition to the sport that’s poised to really make an impact.
According to Hoka, the parallel plates are designed to allow you to dynamically interface with trail running’s changing terrain, maintaining race-level speed and responsiveness without compromising stability. Along with this industry-first tech, the Tecton X also brings a dual-density Profly X midsole and grippy Vibram outsole to the profile. We’re excited to see how seismic of a shift this revolutionary runner proves to be as we tackle our running goals this summer.
Aura Strap 2
To achieve the physique of your dreams, you need a little planning to map and track your progress. The new Aura Strap 2 takes your workout and diet logs up a notch as the only wearable device providing fat, muscle and water balance measurements to your trusty Apple Watch.
Simply touch the heel of your palm to the electrodes on the back of the Apple Watch band and let the bioimpedance analysis sensors do their magic, calculating body fat, muscle mass, minerals and water for an easy-to-read, informative scope of your personal body composition, hydration and fitness progress. You can even sync your stats to your Apple Health app for a well-organized library of data ready to help guide your fitness journey to superior summer swoleness.
GORUCK Sand Kettlebell
Hitting the beach doesn’t have to mean leaving your training at-home thanks to GORUCK’s all-new lineup of sand kettlebells. Ranging in weight from 13 to 53 pounds, these durable training essentials feature a multi-step closure system to keep the sand well-contained.
The heavy-duty padded handles make gripping GORUCK’s sand kettlebells easy and comfortable, perfect for kettlebell swings and other versatile movements. They’re also a great option for those just getting started in kettlebell training, as sand-filled units are more forgiving — and more scalable — than their cast-iron counterparts (although we’re still fans of the latter, too).
Lululemon SenseKnit Running Collection
In celebration of Global Running Day, Lululemon stokes the flames of fitness journeys everywhere with the all-new SenseKnit Collection. Taking aim at the common pitfalls of compression gear — limited mobility, lack of breathability, etc. — the SenseKnit Collection uses the brand’s proprietary SenseKnit fabric, offering engineered zones of support with total mobility for a true running in-sync feel.
The SenseKnit Collection features a number of apparel picks ready for the road, including a long sleeve shirt, 10-inch running short, 28-inch running tight and running sleeves. Currently, only three colorways are available, but Lululemon says more options will launch with each season.
Maurten Solid 225 Sports Fuel
A car without fuel just won’t run. The same notion applies to your training. No fuel? No progress. Maurten has been a go-to supplier of go-juice for a while now, and to add to their impressive stable of gels and drink mixes, the Swedish brand just launched its first energy bar, Solid.
Natural in taste and boasting nothing but the essentials, Solid is a carbohydrate-rich, low-fiber fuel source designed to keep your engine going through your training or race days. The rice and oat original is sweet, but for those craving a little more flavor, a cocoa-based Solid C 225 option is also available. A splendid treat for any sun-drenched workout.
Price: $36 (box of 12)
Ten Thousand Seamless Shirt
When you’re in the throes of intense June training, you’re going to sweat. And while you might think those pit stains serve as a badge of honor, it can be a little uncomfortable — and unpleasantly funky. Ten Thousand, makers of some of the best workout apparel available, has the answer to your salty sweat sessions with its new Seamless Shirt.
As the brand’s most technical top to date, the Seamless Shirt boasts body-mapped mesh for enhanced breathability, along with added vents in areas prone to sweat. And, as the name suggests, this shirt features a comfortable, seamless profile thanks to a state-of-the-art-seam-free knitting process. Stay, cool, calm and comfortable wherever your training takes you this month in this latest top from one of fitness’s most trusted apparel brands.
100 Percent Norvik Sunglasses
Summer and sunglasses go together like peanut butter and jelly, and if you step out in one of the latest frames from 100 Percent, you’ll be more than ready to jam through your next workout. With brand roots in mountain biking and cycling, the Norvik Collection takes inspiration from racing styles of the past and combines that heritage with today’s modern innovations.
These stellar shades can be great for outdoor training or sunny jogs down any route, thanks to their lightweight TR90 frame and interchangeable lenses to match light conditions. Removable side shields can also help block out any elemental intruders when things get squirrelly, making these a quick go-to for seeing summer progress in a whole new light.
