Why do some people where a hat while running or working out? There are many reasons why people where a hat to the gym or on their run. For some, it's all about style and for others it's all functionality. Let's break down some of the top benefits of wearing a workout (gym) hat.
- Style- OK we get it, this can seem a little shallow, but if we are honest, most of us want to look our best. If you dig a little deeper, studies actually show that your how you look (or you perceive you look) can have a big impact on how you actually perform. All the more reason to wear a hat to the gym or on your next run if it makes you feel more confident in the way you look.
- Protection - No, we aren't talking about wearing a hard hat. Many hats offer UPF, which can help protect your head from harmful UV rays if you are working out or running outdoors. Hats can also protect your eyes from the sun or rain (this is even more true if your hat is water resistant).
- Hair and Sweat - Have you ever been sweating so much that it seems like you're spending more time wiping sweat out of your eyes actually improving your fitness? Finding a running hat that is moisture wicking or a sweat resistant hat can save you from constantly having to wipe the sweat out of your eyes. Ladies (or men) with longer hair can also use a gym hat to help keep their hair out of their face.
- To Get Fitr - This one maybe for MorFitr only, but we have seen video after video of athletes getting Fitr in a MorFitr. They say if you look MorFitr, you feel MorFitr, and if you feel MorFitr, then you get MorFitr. Maybe its just us, but we are certainly down with all these benefits simply from wearing a MorFitr hat.
The bottom line is that hats certainly have a place in the gym or when performing outdoor exercise. Whether you wear your hat for style, protection, sweat control, or even as a status symbol, we support you hat wearing athletes!
