Phone, wallet, keys, mask.

This should be the now-memorized checklist before heading out of the house, especially with the newest Omicron variant of COVID-19 potentially on the way.

Even outside of the gym, while getting outside to go for that walk or run is a great idea, you still should have a trusty mask for passing people or crowded parks, as recommended by the CDC.

“Exercising and physical activity are important for physical and mental health and should be continued for healthy living, especially during the coronavirus crisis,” reads the CDC website. “However, it is necessary to take precautions to reduce exposure to and transmission of COVID-19.”

They recommend taking precautions should you choose to work out in a gym or studio, as opposed to outdoors. First, make sure to keep at least six feet of separation (about two arm lengths) between you and others inside the gym. Also, calling ahead to see how many people are inside, asking about their ventilation system and making sure they have a mask policy are important steps before heading out. Lastly, they also advise individuals to bring more than one mask to the gym to change out sweaty masks for dry ones.

“For healthy people, wearing masks during exercise has not been shown to be harmful,” reads the CDC site. “Remove your mask if it gets moist from sweat and replace it with a clean mask while exercising. Have more than one mask on hand so that you can easily replace a moist mask with a dry one.”

Working out while wearing a mask can be the sweaty situation as described by the CDC, especially if you don’t have the right type of mask. Luckily, many sport and athletic companies saw the need for matching masks made from their sweat-wicking materials and comfortable elastics that seem to do the trick.

Here are some gym-worthy options that wick-sweat, keep you as cool as possible and, most importantly, protect yourself and others while working out.
