Are you serious about getting stronger, faster, and in better shape than ever?
Whether you're training as an athlete or working out to stay in shape, achieving great fitness results isn't easy. As we get stronger and fitter, we need to find new ways to challenge our bodies, otherwise we end up stuck in the same routine and watching our results plateau.
At least, that's what happened to us. As former athletes, busy with school or a 9-to-5 job, we just couldn't find time to increase our morning runs or extend our evening gym sessions, so we found ourselves stuck working out every day but without results to show for it.
The solution we invented was Physiclo... a new kind of functional fitness wear that allows you to add extra resistance to any workout, designed by a team of NYU medical students and Olympic Silver Medalist Fencer, Keeth Smart.
The idea started as a medical school project, originally designed to help patients exercise more easily and efficiently. If they couldn’t find enough time to go for a run or hit the gym, then we could help them make the most of whatever time they did have... by building extra resistance directly into their clothing.
Today, Physiclo is the first functional compression apparel with built-in resistance technology. Our products combine the power and functionality of resistance band training with the quality and versatility of performance sportswear to help you achieve greater fitness results.
