The Best Workout-Friendly Face Masks

We’ll be real with you, we never imagined we’d ever write a blog post like this. But the world is a very different place these days, and now, more than ever, we want to ensure we’re doing everything to support the health and safety of our community.

Admittedly, we were unsure how it would feel to to sweat it out while wearing a face covering. Would we feel short of breath? Would the mask trap all the sweat on our face? Well, we’re happy to report that members of our team have been practicing with masks on over the past week…. and it’s no biggie with the “right” mask! Below is an ever-evolving list of our favorite workout-friendly masks.

  • Athleta – Activate Mask – $9.99 for a pack of 2
    • Designed for your active lifestyle
    • Performance-driven, comfortable TurboDry™ fabric
    • Moldable fit around nose and cheek bones
    • Advanced patent-pending technology that helps block particles
    • Adjustable, soft knit ear loops for all-day comfort
    • Breathable non-medical mask
      • Michelle H. says, “This mask is awesome because it has adjustable straps, dries super quick, and stays in place while I practice. Also, they come in cute colors!”
  • Athleta Everyday Mask – $30 for a pack of 5
    • Pleated fabric for a variety of face sizes
    • Adjustable, soft knit ear loops for all-day comfort
      • Bri. B. says, “I have been loving & telling everyone to get the Athleta “everyday mask” I Love it!! It is breathable, has a smooth fit and washes up really nice!”
  • lululemon Face Mask – $28 for a pack of 3
    • Low-profile seams for a streamlined look and comfortable fit

    • Smooth on skin, sweat wicking
  • Primal Wear Mask 2.0 – $22 
    • Re-usable, Non-Medical face mask. SpeedPro Fabric. Includes adjustable ear strap, filter pocket, and X-Frame (X-Frame design lifts the fabric mask off your face, providing superior airflow.)
    • Includes a removable filter
      • Laura L. says, “Can you say game-change? Comfortable material with adjustable straps and a built in lanyard. It stays snug to my face but has a built in frame so I’m not inhaling mask.”
  • Onzie Mindful Masks$24 for a pack of 2
    • Made with multi-layer fabric made of Full Flex Spandex technology for the exterior with a high performance inner lining and elastic straps.
    • Made from up-cycled fabric
      • Heather D. says, “The Onzie masks are my favorite! They are comfortable on my face and ears, breathable, and super cute – the price point is great too. I also love that they are a female owned, small business.”
  • 3D Mask Bracket – 5-pack for $10.99
    • Material: made from a upgrade soft plastic that is very comfortable against our faces, non-toxic , safe and washable for reuse.
      • Michelle H. says, “Super inexpensive and makes a HUGE difference.  You can put these beneath any mask and it won’t suck into your nose or mouth as you inhale.  It works best in masks that have a slot to insert a filter, but you can also just have the insert against your skin.”

 

Can’t get your hands on one of the styles listed above? You’re not alone! Masks are definitely a hot commodity these days. We’ve had students give a stamp of approval to disposable masks, as they are a bit more breathable than their standard cotton/cloth cousins. (Please make sure you dispose of them properly to protect the environment!) Some folks also recommend bringing a second, back-up mask so you can make a swap mid-class or as you’re getting ready to head out the door.

About Kirk: 

Kirk was working 80-hour weeks and wearing his shoulders as earrings when he found yoga in 2005. Forever the competitive athlete, he loved the physicality of yoga. When the spiritual and philosophical side of yoga were exposed to him, Kirk was hooked. Yoga provided him with what other activities couldn’t -- the ability to foster the benefits of practice both on and off of the mat. Yoga was something that Kirk could bring into all aspects of his life. 

Kirk knows that yoga can be intimidating, so he crafts a class that is playful and inviting, while still being challenging and safe. His creatively planned classes build strength and flexibility in your body and mind while establishing clarity, giving you more confidence to overcome obstacles in your life, and keeping you injury-free. His classes are themed with a message that is relatable and will inspire you to take it with you off your mat. Kirk has been teaching yoga since 2008 and lead his first teacher training in 2012. Where Kirk truly shines is in coaching, developing and bringing out the best in others.  

Kirk enjoys traveling (40+ countries to date!), snowboarding, and cherishes time with his wife and two daughters. 

About Christen: 

Christen Bakken’s yoga journey began in 1998 in a Bikram studio that provided a safe and secure place to practice. She saw the yoga mat as a place to remember her purpose and a place to play. As she continued her studies and began her journey to teaching in 2006, Christen infused yoga classes with devotion and the yoga mat became a place of personal transformation and healing. Her classes are filled with laughter, song, sweat, and usually heart openers. In 2013, Christen began training yoga teachers. This is the place where she finds the most joy - in community with folks looking to grow and be of greater service in their homes, on their mats, and in the world. Over the years, she has led trainings in Denver, the Midwest, Florida, and now abroad. She has trained in continuing education modules, 200-hour, 300-hour, and 500-hour programs. Beyond the mat, Christen is a passionate adventure seeker - she loves to bike, snowboard, and spend time with her husband and pups. She sees each day as a blessing and hopes to remind all who interact with her of this truth.
