States have considered reopening gyms to the public with the recommendation that people still wear face covers and masks and follow CDC recommendations regarding face coverings. Luckily, several sports brands have stepped up and are offering their own non-medically graded breathable fabric face masks for the gym and to work out in. These same masks are a great option for outdoor joggers and runners or those looking for face-coverings more suited to and designed for an active lifestyle or activity.
Check out these new sporty designs ideal for the gym to make it easier to work out and stay safe, along with deals we found to help you offset the cost of your gym membership.
