Since the lockdown rules have been eased, we’re all pining to get out and fit and in these extraordinary times, exercise can provide much-needed comfort and relief. The prospect of cancelled gym or Pilates classes, games and races is sad, but Olympic Sport’s new range promises to inspire you to turn up the burn, whether you’re exercising or getting on with life.
The huge rise of the athleisure trend over the last few years has seen the lines blurred between traditional sports gear and casual wear. We want our active wear to be ‘ready for anything’, from leisure to fitness and everything in between. Sneakers have never been more fashionable and Olympic International’s new collection offers classic designs to colourful pick-me-uppers. The heroes include the Stride, Achilles, Activate, Atlas, Arena, Boost and of course the Coach for football fans.
