There's something about looking and feeling good in your activewear that just gives one that extra boost of confidence. Recently, activewear is no longer only confined to the gym - we see it in grocery stores, malls, restaurants and so on - in a sense, it's become a 'casual wear' staple. So it's not surprising that more and more people are looking for activewear that's comfortable for exercise, and activewear that looks good enough to grab a couple of groceries at the store after the gym. 

While there are loads of activewear brands available to us, we wanted to compile a short list of activewear brands that are proudly South African incase you want to support local. 

Let's take a look:
