With gyms reopening and the weather getting cooler, it might be the best time to invest in some new workout gear for fall. If you’re looking for quality performance pieces without the high price tag of some other higher-end brands, look no further than fan favorite Under Armour.
Under Armour’s brand was founded on one thing: Making an exceptional men’s base layer shirt with performance features like moisture-wicking, at a time when that didn’t exist. Since then, the brand has evolved into offering athletic wear and shoes for women, men, and kids, in many sport categories, and now face masks. Regardless of the brand’s expansion over the years, their ethos has remained the same, which is creating “performance solutions you never knew you needed and can’t imagine living without.” This has led to the brand's growing popularity with both consumers and athletes, including celebrity athletes like Tom Brady and Dwayne Johnson, aka “The Rock”.
If you want to train like "The Rock" or other celebrity athletes, you’re going to want gym gear that can live up for the performance. Below we’ve rounded up 10 of Under Armour’s most popular pieces that people can’t get enough of from base layers to shoes.

8. UA HeatGear Armour Long Sleeve Compression Shirt
This is not your ordinary long sleeve shirt.

9. UA Tech 2.0 Short Sleeve
This basic short sleeve shirt is anything but basic. This shirt has a near cult-following with a 4.4-star rating and more than 760 reviews. It’s loose and lightweight with a streamlined fit, meaning it won’t be overly baggy. It’s made of UA Tech fabric that is quick-drying, sweat-wicking, and has a soft feel.
One buyer really put this shirt to the test and became an instant Under Armour fan saying, “I started today with a 6 a.m. run, went from there to the gym, then worked a physical job. I helped a relative move to a new apartment up two flights of stairs in 85-degree weather. Throughout the whole day, no matter how much I was sweating (and boy did I sweat), I didn't feel very sweaty at all. The moisture-wicking feature certainly seems to work! The shirt is very comfortable, never got in the way, and just felt great to move in. I will definitely be buying more to complete my activewear wardrobe. I'm sold on Under Armour.”
10. UA Tech Graphic Shorts
One word that kept coming up over and over in the more than 460 reviews (and a 4.6-star rating!) to describe these shorts was “perfect”. These shorts are one of Under Armour’s original training gear pieces being loose, light, and designed to keep you cool. One satisfied customer raves about these shorts and writes, “These shorts stretch and flex with you, but are loose and comfortable, so they never cling to you. They're super lightweight, cut just an inch below the knee on me (I'm 5'7") so they don't feel like baggy basketball shorts, and with me being a bigger guy, the waistband and drawstring are perfect and don't pinch or roll under like some shorts do. The only criticism I have is there aren't enough colors I'd wear because I'd easily buy five pairs.”
