Check Out These Local Activewear Brands That Will Stand the Test of Time

There are a lot of stylish and functional activewear brands out there, but let’s be honest: a lot of the time, these activewear brands don’t stand the test of time. Too much stretching may lead to rips, and too many cycles in the laundry machine may lead to discoloration. That isn’t the case with these awesome activewear brands that we are currently obsessed with.

3 Local Activewear Brands That Will Stand the Test of Time

Gametime is a family-owned business that is engaged in the design, development, marketing, and selling of athletic apparel and accessories for a wide variety of sports and fitness activities (e.g. basketball, training, yoga, cycling, and even lifestyle wear). Ever since 2004, it has been their goal to create easy, comfortable, and lightweight apparel that can help enhance people’s sports performance.

Being a sports-oriented family, they saw the positive impact of an active lifestyle in terms of health and character, and they wanted to promote that lifestyle through their products. Since they are athletes themselves, they know the importance of wearing the right workout gear to allow people to become fearless. All of Gametime’s products are of the highest quality and provide the utmost comfort and functionality. Since they only use high-performance fabrics and materials (CoolTech), you can expect them to be breathable and lightweight, too.

You can find Gametime’s retail shops in 168 Mall, Market! Market!, and Cash and Carry. They also have online shops at Zalora, Shopee, Lazada, and their official website: http://www.gametimephilippines.com

Liberté Activewear PH (@liberteactiveph)

Justine Enide Lacaba, the owner of  Liberté Activewear PH, shares that she used to wear loose shirts and regular shorts while working out because she was afraid that her body wasn’t perfect enough for cute activewear. It wasn’t until last year that she finally mustered the confidence to amp up her workout wardrobe. That’s when she realized that the right activewear can really give people confidence and the motivation to stay fit and active. Liberté Activewear PH was created to encourage women to feel good in their own bodies by helping them work out comfortably without spending too much.
