Your Favorite Dallas Gym Probably Makes a Cute Face Mask

Wear For Workouts, or Support Your Go-To Class From Afar

BY // 06.24.20

I’ll admit, I still haven’t worked out in a gym IRL since the pandemic began. Partially because studies haven’t been too positive about the safety of indoor gym facilities, where the major draws for going back are the very reasons doing so is difficult right now. But it’s also because I’ve grown to love my at-home streaming routine — I’ve never been so grateful to have randomly purchased Bala bands last year.

It’s been heartening to see how thoughtful Dallas gyms have been about safety as their doors begin to open, and how many places have been candid and transparent about the dangers of Covid-19 within their walls. There’s a big difference between learning to live with the virus and pretending it doesn’t exist — most boutique fitness studios seem to acknowledge that.

And though wearing a face masks isn’t typically forced during the actual workout (gyms are requiring guests to wear one in restrooms or lobby areas), many class goers might feel more comfortable easing back into gym life sporting the protective accessory.

For those still uneasy about an indoor workout, many of the following gyms are still offering streaming memberships — their virtual workouts have only gotten better since launching in March. Buying a face mask (or anything) from your favorite studio also doubles as a way to support them from afar.

 

Grit by Brit

The studio’s “Resting Grit Face” masks sold out fast when they first debuted this spring. Now that face masks are becoming more normalized in studios and Dallas as a whole, keep an eye out for a second drop coming early July.

Bandier

Not a boutique fitness studio per se, but anyone who frequents a boutique studio in Dallas is probably familiar with Bandier’s killer collection of activewear. Forever on trend, the Highland Park Village shop is now selling face masks.
