why we love this: action gym towel

Like most of us, before I set eyes on the Action Gym Towel, I was certain that my little ol’ gym towel was capable of everything I needed it to do.  It did not cross my mind to ask my towel to do more – that’s where our oh-so-talented design team came in to make the day of gym-goers everywhere!

A well-sized, roomy pocket: on its own it sounds pretty average, right? Well, add that pocket to the face of a luxurious gym towel and you have the Action Gym Towel!

It wasn’t until I was getting my things ready for a trip to the gym that I realized this pocket could come in handy before I even walked out my front door.

I have a few extra pieces that I reserve for the gym:

• Hair tie - I’m envying those ladies with short, chic styles right now!
• Slipless headband too, because it has been many long months since I started growing my bangs out
• Gym pass – need it to get through the doors

The pocket lets me keep these items in my towel once it comes out of the wash so that I won't forget to bring my essentials every time I head to the gym.

Now, we all know that ladies tend to carry a few extra pieces, but what about guys? What would they use this pocket for, I wonder?

Fortunately, my fiancée was able to help with that mystery.  He chose his iPod and armband carrier, as well as his work out gloves; and yes, it all fit – I closed the zipper myself!

So we’ve covered the gym prep, but how did this towel perform when I arrived at the gym? I tested it every way I could think of, like on the treadmill:

I was most interested to see how it would perform underneath me on the bench, holding my keys all at the same time. I am glad to report that it is large enough to keep the keys from pressing into your back and cover the bench too!


Thank you lululemon design team for taking the everyday gym towel a giant leap forward! Here’s the rest of why you will love the Action Gym Towel:

• This luxurious 20”x30” gym towel makes you want to work up a sweat at the gym
• The perfect blend of cotton and modal, which are both absorbent and super soft against your skin.
• Built-in zipper pocket keeps your keys, coins and a hair tie at your fingertips
• “Hang out friendly”: has a built-in loop so your towel never hits the floor in the locker room

Just another product to rip ppl off. How much is this $30? Lulu lemon is over priced and made in china. These guys never have a sale on cuz they think they are hot shit. I never walk in a lulu lemon store anymore.

Is this a joke? A lot of companies make products like this. What’s so great about this thing? I don’t get it. I use http://www.GermGuardTowel.com and it is awesome!

Hi Tan!

Our design team recently released the Small Manduka Towel which is a great piece for the gym http://bit.ly/GCX8Pm The towel is made from Cocona fabric which is odour resistant and uses natural technology derived from recycled coconut shells.
