Workout Gear So Hot, It'll Make You Sweat

Quicksilver

Roxy's new workout gear is cute and practical.

While Victoria's Secret yoga pants and Pink tees seem to be the hot ensemble to don to your boot camp class and the gym, there's a new alternative of cute workout gear.

This summer surf brand Roxy is giving active ladies a new option for feminine and affordable exercise garb.

The collection, called Athletix, is made up of sports bras, tanks, tees, shorts, pants and jackets in feminine cuts, patterns and colors like pink, baby blue and violet.

Plus, the line is tech friendly, meaning every garment comes with built-in, sweat-proof media pockets so you can safely store your iPod and cell phone and finally ditch that burdening gym bag.

"It [also] includes practical details such as reflective tape and ventilation layering," said Roxy spokeswoman Ashton Spatz, who also adds that the gear was inspired by the needs of their "professional surfers, skiers and snowboarders." 

Noteworthy items in the collection are Athletix Rox workout pants, which feature a flower printed, fold-over waist band, the hot pink Powder Puff shorts and the I Heart Sport Tee, which is cute and easy over a sports bra.

The Athletix line runs from  $19.50-$66.

Find it at Island Water Sports in Deerfield, Roxy shops and at Roxy.com
