Fitness • May 19, 2023

We recently launched our Trainer-Approved series. After doing a round-up of the best leggings for HIIT &  Strength workouts, we asked our Instagram followers what they wanted to see next and they chose Trainer-Approved Shorts for Men.

When it comes to crushing your high-intensity interval training (HIIT) and strength workouts, having the right gear can make all the difference. While most fitness enthusiasts focus on finding the perfect pair of shoes, one crucial aspect often gets overlooked: shorts. Yes, you read that right! The right pair of shorts can significantly enhance your performance, comfort, and overall workout experience.
