2. A light and breathable t-shirt

Keeping the upper body cool will keep you as comfortable as possible during your Crossfit workouts. 

A good tank top or t-shirt that is well fitted will offer you stylish support whilst helping to keep you cool. Brands such as Virus and Halo offer good quality clothing made from breathable materials that are great for Crossfit and other forms of high-intensity training.

3. Breathable shorts, tights or leggings

Breathability in your Crossfit clothing will make you a lot more comfortable, which is where good quality shorts, tights or leggings can make a massive difference. These will help support you during heavy lifts whilst not inhibiting your range of motion during other movements. 

4. A good quality sports bra

If you need a sports bra, make sure you pick one that offers good support. You are going to be jumping around and running, which means you'll need a sports bra to support high intensity workouts.

Breathable socks are essential in Crossfit as the likelihood is you will be performing a lot of compound and jumping movements in quick succession. Having socks that offer support as well as breathability will really benefit your workouts.
