Whether you are a yoga studio looking to bring breathable merch to your instructors, or a CrossFit gym looking to invest in quality gear your members can rep, finding the right gear can feel overwhelming. Over the years we have worked with countless yoga, pilates, and CrossFit clubs and have combined our knowledge with their recommendations to bring you the ultimate selection of products for you to choose from. It can be a struggle to find breathable workwear clothes that can move with you throughout your day, and with summer inching closer, we have prepared a list of our top recommendations for athletic clubs looking to expand their marketing into custom apparel!

CrossFit Must Haves:

CrossFit demands garments that can withstand rigorous movement and manage your temperature in the gym. Starting with a light jacket or a dri-fit pullover is optimal for colder weather. Layering your garments is ideal for warm-ups, keeping those muscles warm to avoid injury throughout your workout. Choosing sweat-wicking materials is key to maintaining comfort throughout a vigorous workout. 

Men’s CrossFit Garment Recommendations:

Posi Charge Mesh Reversible Tee from Sport-Tek is an amazing option for Men’s CrossFit. It comes in True Navy, Royal, Red, and Black. Its breathable polyester mesh allows for comfortable wear. Even when it comes to screen printing on polyester mesh, the material remains open and breathable, maintaining that lightweight comfort many appreciate in their workout apparel. This garment has piping on the shoulders, side panels, and a ribbed knit neck.

The Promesh Gym Shorts from LA Apparel are polyester mesh, mid-length shorts. These Men’s/Unisex shorts are made in the USA and have an adjustable drawstring waist and pockets.

Women’s CrossFit Garment Recommendations:

The Women’s Racerback Cropped Tank from Bella Canvas is an excellent top for CrossFit. It is a loose-fitting heather tank with a raw hem. You don’t have to worry about distractions from rubbing or chafing on rough seams during your workout.  This racerback comes in 17 colors, including classics like black, white, and a plethora of fun summer colors.

Sport Tek’s Repeat Shorts feature a 3.5-inch inseam for maximized mobility, as well as a built-in polyester liner. They also have an exterior cell phone pocket for accessibility. These shorts are versatile enough to adapt to life beyond the gym.

Yoga Must-Haves:

Garments intended for yoga require breathability and mobility. Lightweight tank tops and shorts are a staple in our yoga clients’ apparel orders. The following garments are soft to the touch, gentle on sensitive skin, and highly rated by pros in the industry.

Men’s Yoga Garment Recommendations:

LA Apparel’s Tri-Blend Unisex Tank is comprised of 50% Polyester / 25% Cotton / 25% Rayon, each adding a different component to the garment. Polyester adds elasticity to the garment, cotton adds softness, and Rayon slims the garment against the body. This slimming effect is ideal for yoga due to the importance of form. This tank is perfect for hot yoga and wicks away sweat while remaining breathable.

Sport-Tek’s take on the Repeat 7” inch Men’s short is a very yoga-forward garment. Moisture-wicking poly-spandex gives these shorts the range for comfortable movement. The elastic waistband and interior drawcord keep your pants comfortably in place during your flow.

Women’s Yoga Garment Recommendations:

OGIO’s Ladies Level Mesh Tank is a breathable, moisture-wicking polyester material. Tanks give an excellent range of movement for the heat and flow of yoga. Equipped with a t-back strap and metal ring, this tank is perfect for hot yoga and barrier protection between you and the mat. We recommend sizing down for a slimmer fit.

LA Apparel’s Poly Interlock Motion Shorts are comprised of a Poly Spandex combo. This is a great combo for that flexibility that moves with you through your session and is perfect for hotter weather. This waistband is designed to flatter, not dig into your waist, serving as a second skin for your session.

Aftercare of screen-printed garments:

The aftercare of your screen-printed athletic clothing is short and easy! We recommend washing your clothes with cold water and a great antibacterial detergent. To preserve your prints, make sure to turn your clothes inside out to avoid friction with other garments in the wash cycle. For the best results, hang dry! This technique can be applied to all screen-printed garments and is a sustainable practice of TLC to enjoy your garments for years to come! Our graphic designers, screenprinting team, and sales representatives look forward to making all your design dreams come true.
