The rainy season can be a major pain in the backside for those of us who love to work out outside. A sudden rainstorm can make you reconsider your plan to go for a run or do some bodyweight training on your terrace or in a nearby park. However, it turns out that exercising in the rain can improve your fitness. Working out in the cold and rain tests your stamina, burns more fat, and increases resistance – plus it’s unquestionably more fun than plopping down on a treadmill indoors. Plus what’s better than having a whole fitness wardrobe?
However, a haphazard workout in the rain with no planning can be unpleasant, if not dangerous. You’ll need a monsoon-friendly activewear wardrobe to make your rainy-day workouts comfortable, safe, and pleasant.
We’ve curated a list of fitness wardrobe essentials for you which you must buy this monsoon!
1. Puma Ignite Woven dryCELL Training Shorts
Puma’s dryCELL technology keeps moisture, sweat, and, in this case, raindrops away from the skin in these training shorts. We don’t advocate wearing these in a torrential rainstorm; they’re best for light rain.
2. Wildcraft Hypadry Rain Jacket Suit
If you’re going on a monsoon trip or trek, you’ll need extra rain protection. This two-tone rain jacket suit features sealed seams and waterproofing up to 2000mm, ensuring complete dryness from head to toe. To finish the appearance, add waterproof walking shoes and a hat.
3. Decathlon Rain Training Cap
It’s critical to keep your head dry when exercising in the rain to avoid disease. Decathlon’s water-resistant training cap is a lightweight must-have for all of your rainy workouts. It has a rear velcro strap that may be adjusted for a comfortable fit.

5. Nike Pro Tights
If you don’t want to expose your legs, these Nike workout tights are a good option. Dri-FIT technology from the brand keeps you dry and sweat-free by wicking away perspiration rapidly. You can add a layer of weather protection by layering these with training shorts.
