What size is right for me?

Physiclo activewear by nature of having built in resistance does run a bit small.  Our compression leggings and shorts are designed with multiple tight-fitting layers, so some people find it pretty tight to wear on the first try.  We would recommend using our size guide and just know that if they are tighter than your normal workout leggings, that is normal.


 Men's Guide

Pant Waist (inch) 26-28 29-31 31-34 34-37 37-40 40-43


Women's Guide

Waist (inch) 25-26 27-29 29-31 31-32 33-34 35-37
Hip (inch) 33-35 36-38 39-40 41-43 43-45 46-48


It's tight to put on - is my size is too small?

You probably have the right size but you are just not used to getting into a pair of pants that have resistance bands running through them.  This is normal and we have found there is a helpful technique for slipping into your new workout leggings.

The trick is to first work the pants up your knees, then shimmy into them. If you experience any unusual wrinkling or uncomfortableness, try taking the pants off and putting them on again- usually the second time fits much better!

The Physiclo Difference

How is Physiclo different from any other compression wear?

Simple.  We are the first compression wear to also incorporate resistance technology seamlessly into our apparel. Two separate elastic layers built right into the clothing stretch independently in different directions to cover specific muscle groups across a full range of motion.


What goes into Resistance Compression Wear?

Designed with breathable, moisture wicking fabrics but also scientifically designed to maximize the results of your workout.  With strategically placed resistance bands running under the garment, these compression leggings can be worn on their own or under any other workout apparel.


What are the benefits of training with Physiclo?

When you wear Physiclo compression pants, your body works harder to overcome the extra resistance they add to your movements, helping you get stronger, fitter, and faster.

This has resulted in:

  • 14% increase in calories burned
  • 23% increase in muscle activity
  • Achieve results in less time.

How to train with Physiclo.

What activities are good for using compression tights with resistance?

Training with Physiclo helps you take your exercise routine to the next level whether you prefer running, yoga, cross training, spinning, or any other fitness activities that require a lower body workout.  

Use as running tights to push yourself to hit that personal best on your next race.  Increase your efficiency while training for your next 5k, 10k, half marathon, or full marathon just by wearing our activewear during your run schedule.  Wear these just like you would any other compression gear while training to get the best performance on race day. 

Use as workout leggings in the gym and engage more target muscle groups on leg day or cut down the time of your cardio sessions.  Lunges, squats, box jumps, and any cardio routines are ideal for use with our compression leggings.

Will this make me feel extra tired during my workout?

Yes, PHYSICLO fundamentally makes you work harder and therefore your body will get tired more quickly than usual. But wait! Most people have noticed that the actual PERCEPTION of the resistance goes away after 15-20 minutes, so it won't make you feel like you're struggling.


Will this make me sweat more during my workout?

Nope, PHYSICLO is made from fabrics that are highly ventilating and moisture-wicking. If you're sweating more, it's because you're doing more!


Couldn't I just work out longer and get the same effect?

More or less, but do you really want to work out longer? In fact, why not work out longer and get BETTER results?


Can I wear this on the couch to burn extra calories?

No, unfortunately PHYSICLO isn't one of those "miracle pills". Our resistance gear acts like a multiplier to help you get more out of what you're doing. If you're doing nothing, then you'll get... well, nothing!


Can I wear this while I'm at school / work to burn extra calories?

Absolutely. PHYSICLO helps you get more out of anything you do, and it's sleek and comfortable enough to wear under everyday clothes. Of course, you won't get as much of an effect when sitting at a desk, but commuting and walking around with PHYSICLO are perfect ways to burn extra calories!


Can I wear this on game day / during competitions?

Not recommended. Remember, PHYSICLO is ADDING RESISTANCE to your movements. It's perfect for training in, but you'll want to take it off on game day.

Company history

PHYSICLO started out in 2013 as a project by a small group of medical students trying to find a way to help rehabilitate people who needed a "push" to reach that minimum baseline of healthy exercise.  

After talking with hundreds of potential customers, we decided to pivot our concept to creating functional fitness clothes to help athletes & runners train more efficiently. PHYSICLO is run by a team of NYU medical students, doctors, fashion designers, and Olympic athletes.

Our mission is to create the ultimate workout apparel that empowers people to take control of their fitness.
