From our deep understanding of the intense nature of crossfit to our dedication to quality and design, we represent a fusion of functionality and fashion within the world of sport.
Why specialized crossfit training clothes are important
Crossfit is more than just a form of training and exercise. For many, Crossfit is a lifestyle, a passion, and a sport that requires the utmost in physical and mental strength. This brings us to a crucial aspect of any crossfit enthusiast's gear: the workout clothes.
Crossfit is unique in its versatility. It combines elements from weightlifting, gymnastics and cardio training, which places high demands not only on the person who practices crossfit, but also on the clothes that are worn. A typical crossfit workout (WOD) can involve anything from running and rowing to lifting and pull-ups. This versatility requires clothing that can adapt and support a wide range of movement without inhibiting any performance.
Extremely stretchy, breathable and light weight
We at Birke1972 know about the intense nature of crossfit and this places high demands on the durability and functionality of our training clothes. The clothing must be able to withstand repeated loads, maintain its shape and, not least, support the muscles correctly.
We believe that our crossfit training clothes are of the highest quality and that they can withstand being used. For example, you can take our 2-Layer Infiltrator Super Stretch as a starting point , which comes in a super stretchy and highly breathable material. We have used a super light and strong material that keeps the important things in place, but gets heat and moisture away from the body. They have been developed specifically for Crossfit and for those of you who love to do really deep squats. They can stretch up to 100%, so no matter what demanding exercises you do, they will follow your body's movements without in any way hindering you in your training.
The material feels light, thin and airy, but it holds up to anything you can think of to make out of wild things. If you participate in OCR or similar forms of training, we recommend our RECON shorts instead, which are also very stretchy but exceptionally strong.
The difference between regular sportswear and Crossfit-specific clothing
Although ordinary sportswear can be comfortable and functional for many forms of exercise, our crossfit training clothes differ by being designed specifically for the unique demands of crossfit. This includes clothing that is extra reinforced in areas that are typically exposed to wear and tear, such as knees and elbows during burpees or lunges. It also includes materials that can effectively manage sweat and provide optimal breathability, which is essential during intensive workouts. Our crossfit training clothes are also developed so that you can move in them. Eg. is our Runway T-shirt made in a stretchable material, with an elasticity of up to 50%, which adapts to the body's movements and gives you great freedom of movement.
Choosing the right workout clothes for Crossfit isn't just a matter of style; it's a matter of performance, comfort. By investing in specialized training clothes, you ensure that your body has the best support, so that you can give your best in each and every workout.
