Sometimes we all need a bit of help getting back into ﬁtness. That could be a something as simple as new running shoes or a ﬁtness buddy, trainer or even a colleague. It’s much easier to get motivated to work out when you have someone helping you along. But it doesn’t have to be a person. It could be a pair of 2XU tights. While you may not think your workout gear plays a big role in your sports and workout performance, it can, in fact, play a big role both physically and mentally to help you be your best.
According to 2XU, a pair of compression tights don’t do much without the wearer. But put the two together and magic can happen. This is the premise behind the brand’s latest ‘Better Together’ campaign. Featuring members of the 2XU community, the campaign will focus in on real people and their stories, communicating that through sport, we can do hard things together.
Taking research and testing conducted with athletes and world-renowned institutions, 2XU says its compression gear allows everyone to experience the benefits of compression, no matter their ability. Not like your regular workout tights the brand says, 2XU Compression is designed for movement and recovery. A unique graduated compression profile encourages blood flow towards the heart, allowing you to reduce injury, perform better and recover faster.
