Father’s Day Gift Guide: The Best Warm-Weather Workout Gear
Wahoo Elemnt Rival Multisport Watch
A multisport GPS smart watch, the Elemnt Rival tracks segment time and workout data, powered by Elemnt technology. This smart watch is just as robust with features for triathletes as it is for weekend warriors; during races all dad has to do is press ‘start’ and the watch can track all activity, even through triathlon transitions. Founder and Chairman of Wahoo Chip Hawkins says, “Wahoo’s Elemnt Rival is a comprehensive GPS Sportwatch for athletes (and parents) on the go. As a dad myself, using this watch helps keep track of my fitness goals and performance whether I’m running a 10K or hiking with the family.”
Is the dad in your life still wearing the same pair of shades for all activities, from kayaking to brunch with family? Please help him find a more functional, probably life-changing sunglasses solution. Costa’s Lido shades are inspired by the vibes of the Pacific shores, and suitable for any waterfront activities, come with top and side shields to prevent light leaking in. A vented, hydrolite nose pad and temple tips keep frames locked in place and prevent fogging. The Lido frame is made from lightweight, plant-based bio-resin and lenses are polarized and made from polycarbonate.
Lululemon Metal Vent Tech Short Sleeve Shirt 2.0
The gift of replacing worn-out, stinky or just weirdly oversized workout shirts is a gift for dad and those working out with him. Made from 100% recycled polyester fiber, this slimmer cut alternative to traditional workout tees is made from lululemon’s proprietary Silverescent™ technology, powered by X-STATIC®, that inhibits the growth of odor causing bacteria. Minimal seams mean less chafing, and added elastane means better shape and stretch for longer.
Lululemon Pace Breaker Lined Short 7”
Lululemon’s Summer, 2022 colors are motivation to workout all on their own. This lightweight, sweat-wicking short suits every workout from running to weight-lifting. The Pace Breaker lined short is a perfectly versatile gift to get him through the warm weather months looking and feeling great when he sweats. The Swift fabric is a four-way stretch material, that’s abrasion-resistant, sweat-wicking and quick-drying. It’s also chic enough to take him from workout to brunch.
Available in a color lineup that looks right off of a sexy LA beach, this oversized pullover with dropped shoulders and smart cuffs at the sleeves and waistband will give him all of the hot-dad-but-casual vibes. Made with a heavyweight French terry fabric, and constructed in a shape that’s designed to work from studio-to-street, it will be his perfect go-everywhere sweatshirt. Convenient for Father’s Day gifting, Alo also provides free returns by including a prepaid shipping label in each package for any size exchanges dad might need.
What dad doesn’t prefer a short that matches comfort with versatility and functionality? The Crossover Short by Mark Wahlberg co-founded Municipal somehow maximizes each of these three, key categories and its construction is suited to almost any warm weather workout: from golf and soccer to tennis and basketball. This short is double layered with a 100% cotton micro-perforated mesh exterior and modal/spandex blend interior, side pockets with a hidden and zippered security pocket and a longer length, hitting right at the top of the knee.
