It’s summer – the time to get out, work up a sweat and get in shape. It’s all part of maintaining a proper work-life balance, too.

Using compression technology, the new line of Adidas Techfit garments can give you greater control over your body movements while reducing post-workout muscle soreness. It works by applying pressure to the body, which helps to improve blood circulation. Less soreness means less downtime, and less downtime means more workouts for faster results.

Columbia PFC-Free Outdry Extreme ECO
You might love nature, but to enjoy it you’re probably wearing sturdy outdoor attire produced with a harmful impact on the environment. Columbia’s OutDry Extreme ECO rain jacket is different. This durable item is made without environmentally harmful PFCs (perfluorinated compounds), and the main fabric is 100 percent recycled material, made out of 21 recycled plastic bottles. It’s also undyed, which saves over 51 litres of water. Shop 031-033, G/F, Cityplaza, tel: 2569 8200
The NikeLab ACG line – ACG stands for all conditions gear – is about intuitive, functional design with a streetwear aesthetic. Its latest all-purpose, water-resistant trainers can survive a torrential rainstorm and still hold their own at a hip event. The shoes have a stylish magnetic buckle and a strap over the arch, as well as adjustable cables on the heel to give you an extra secure footing. Shop 133, 1/F, Cityplaza, tel: 2554 7273
