It’s been hard to stay on track with fitness goals during the pandemic. First the gyms all closed, then it became impossible to order weights and other workout equipment online. Even now that gyms are beginning to reopen, it’s with huge precautions, including limiting the number of people in one space at a time, and ensuring that all machinery is cleaned after each use.
And, of course, in accordance with official CDC guidelines, everybody working out is required to wear a face covering in order to limit the spread of respiratory droplets and the subsequent risk of transmitting coronavirus. Which is absolutely something we should all be doing. But finding a mask that’s comfortable enough to train in that doesn’t leave you feeling overheated, irritated, and breathless is no small order.
One brand that seems to have this down is Masqd: the Ultra Sport face mask promises a comfortable, breathable fit while exercising. The washable fabric mask includes a PM2.5 filter, which the manufacturer recommends be replaced after 6 hours of continuous wear in order to maximize the mask’s effectiveness (these filters can also be purchased from Masqd).
People who have bought the Masqd Ultra Sport have praised its “perfect fit”, saying it is “very breathable,” even while running, and “exactly what I needed for my indoor workouts.” It’s already the workout mask of choice for a number of fit celebrities, including Jennifer Lopez, Gwen Stefani, Olivia Wilde, and Chrissy Teigen.
In fact, the Ultra Sport has proven so popular this year that the entire product line has sold out no fewer than 12 times—which makes sense, given that the mask is the must-have item of 2020. It’s back in stock as of right now, but given the previous high demand, you might want to buy now if you want one for your future workouts. Each mask retails at $28, and orders are currently shipping within 15 days due to the high volume of orders.
