In recent years, Crossfit has grown to become one of the most popular forms of exercise in Sweden and large parts of the world. It is a high-intensity form of training. The athletes are pushed to the limit in various exercises where the body's natural movement is used. Including weight lifting, gymnastics (pullups, Roman rings), body weight (push-ups, leg bends). Also cardio training which is usually performed in intervals.
Since it is a high-intensity form of exercise where you activate the whole body in a series of different exercises, it requires you to have good training clothes that do not restrict your movements. As you may have already guessed, at Relode we offer really good crossfit clothing for both men and women. You will find more information and examples below.
Good Crossfit clothing must meet the following requirements
We believe that everyone who practices crossfit must have clothing that meets the following requirements.
Firstly, your clothes must be very durable as they will be exposed to great stress. As I said, Crossfit is a very varied form of exercise and your clothes should work just as well when you do deadlifts and pullups as when you do an interval workout on the rowing machine.
Therefore, choose training clothes made from quality materials with high absorbency.
The vast majority prefer to train crossfit in tight clothes that are flexible and comfortable. If you have a t-shirt that fits too loosely, there is a risk that it will rub on your body or get in the way when you do certain exercises. Therefore, try to find both pants (tights) and tops that fit your body like a glove.
Another advantage of using tight-fitting training clothes when doing crossfit is that they offer support for the body. For example, many people want tights with a high waist and some prefer long-sleeved shirts that are tight over the arms and chest.
Relode's best crossfit clothing
We who work at Relode train a lot and crossfit is a favorite of most people here. Unsurprisingly, we have therefore also created crossfit clothing that we ourselves use and are happy to recommend to anyone interested in crossfit. Of all our clothes, the following three collections are absolutely the best.
Slipstream Seamless is one of our best selling collections. As the name reveals, these clothes are seamless, which offers optimal comfort and reduced risk of chafing and pressure points. Above all, we recommend the Slipstream tights for crossfit, but also the top.
Mercy is the name of a collection of training clothes that we launched in 2021 and which has already become hugely popular. The quality tops and 3/4 tights are best suited for crossfit, but for those of you who often get cold, we can also recommend a cropped hoodie.
Core is one of our largest collections of stylish training clothes that offer optimal support. Which is good when doing crossfit. The clothes are available in black, white and two shades of dark green.
Core singlet and Core top are excellent all-round garments for all forms of training in crossfit.
What is Crossfit?
Basically, crossfit is a form of training with the goal of activating and optimizing the body's natural movement patterns, which is why it is sometimes called functional fitness. You simply want to activate the body in the way it is intended, just as our ancestors did.
It is one of the most versatile forms of training and one of the reasons why it has become so popular is that you can easily adapt the training to your ability and goals. It is often said that there are as many versions of crossfit as there are practitioners and crossfit trainers. Therefore, we have a vision to offer garments for all forms of training and moments within the sport.
Crossfit today has millions of practitioners all over the world and since 2007 the Crossfit Games have been organized every year where the world's best meet in a series of different stages. At the time of writing, Mat Fraser is the world's number one athlete with five Crossfit Games wins under his belt.
