Working out should be one of the most straightforward, mindless tasks of modern life, requiring little more than gym shorts, a pair of running shoes, and maybe a motivating soundtrack. But in the past few years, a dizzying number of fitness gear and tech companies have flooded the market — selling everything from activity-tracking finger rings to yoga pants that correct your form — turning the simple act of getting dressed into an endurance test in itself.

In comparison, New York City-based apparel brand Wolaco focuses on the basics, creating fashionable but fuss-free apparel that actually makes your life and workout that much easier — making it our go-to brand for exercising on the road.

Funded by a Kickstarter campaign that overshot its projected goal by about 400%, Wolaco is best known for its super durable compression shorts, which have discreet, sweat-proof side pockets that are ideal for storing valuables like cellphones or keys.

Wolaco has already won over professional athletes, including former NFL running back Tony Richardson — and now that the brand is branching into women’s wear, it’s only a matter of time until sport's leading ladies start donning the thoughtfully-designed technical gear.

Taking a conscious approach to expansion, the new drop consists of just 4 products: a sports bra, two different workout tops (one short sleeved, one long-sleeved), and a super flattering pair of leggings — complete with the sweat-proof pocket detail, of course.

The styles are feminine while still being practical for everyday wear, and come in a variety of different shades, including teal, periwinkle, and maroon.

Now that Wolaco has your workout gear all sorted, all that's left for you to do is drag yourself to the gym — and if you live in New York City, Wolaco's got you covered for that, too.
