A 22km run on a Sunday morning showed me how the heat (internal and external) can severely affect my training performance. I started out at 7am and ended close to 10am with a hilly route as the finisher. Bad move because with the long slopes, my rising body temp plus the blazing sun beating down on me, my pace was badly affected.
CoolSwitch does exactly what its name states - it cools your body and skin when you start to heat up and sweat. The technology blends three unique active cooling agents, integrated for the first time ever in an apparel application, with each of these ingredients delivering a specific benefit over the course of a workout to help athletes stay cool.
As a result, during a workout, CoolSwitch wearers feel cooler, less physically taxed and their skin temperature stays lower, allowing them to exercise longer. With Under Armour’s CoolSwitch technology, it is a leap forward for athletes and fitness enthusiasts everywhere to maintain and further their fitness and wellness journey.
