The California Winter Workout Gear That's Getting Us Through The Cold Season

The California Winter Workout Gear That's Getting Us Through The Cold Season

By Rachael Medina November 14, 2019

As the cool breezes start to rustle the leaves and the days get shorter, it feels impossible to find the motivation to complete a winter workout. Between the intermittent showers, holiday parties, and family obligations, there never seems to be time to fit in an entire workout routine—that is, until we put on our favorite cold weather workout clothes. Just slipping into the warmth of these California-made clothing items makes the Sunday scaries and the seasonal sadness feel a bit more distant. All of a sudden, time opens up and taking a jog around the block or lifting weights at the gym feels more like a hobby and less like a chore. So, before you entirely give up on the idea of working out when it’s cold outside, give these winter workout outfits a chance.

Finding the motivation to leave the house when it's cold outside can feel like an impossible task, but California's workout gear helps reduce the burden.

Athleta

Based in: Petaluma

When it comes to winter workouts, comfort and warmth are the top priorities. Athleta's cozy sherpa reversible jacket combines the best of both so you can focus on getting fit. Photo courtesy of Athleta.

Athleta perfectly combines ethical practices, high-quality materials, and fashionable designs to create workout clothes you can’t find anywhere else. Along with producing some of the best yoga clothes in California, the company has workout gear specifically made for hiking (so you can tackle the Tahoe Rim Trail), cold-weather training, golfing, traveling, and more. While all of Athleta’s winter workout clothes are winners, we’ve found a few favorite items this season.
