Fitness-conscious New Yorkers have endless possibilities when it comes to their workout clothes. But how many clothing companies can say their products are certified as General Medical Devices? Japanese high performance sportswear company C3fit can.
Using the highest standard Lycra Sport material and employing a highly technical manufacturing process, C3fit is a global brand that has created products that increase blood circulation and reduce swelling. In accordance with its stringent guidelines, Japan’s Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare has certified C3fit’s long tights, calf sleeves, and high socks as General Medical Devices, recognizing the health benefits consumers receive as a result of wearing these products.
The three C’s in the name C3fit stand for Compression, Conditioning, and Comfort. The compression is graduated to provide the most pressure at the ankle, reducing the pressure up the leg to increase circulation and keep excess muscle vibration to a minimum. The result is a more efficient workout and better conditioning.
C3fit’s “smart seam” technology flattens the seams, which are in sewn in the company’s proprietary crescent pattern. The Impact Air Long Tights are constructed to provide support to knees, thighs, hips, and calves, absorbing the impact of running while stabilizing your core. Although you feel the compression when you’re wearing C3fit tights, you can move comfortably and freely. It’s almost as if you’re getting a massage during your workout. The unique fabric is lightweight and breathable, and it also provides UPF40 or above protection so that your skin during outdoor workouts are shielded from the sun’s harmful rays.
C3fit also carries a line of arch support socks with a crisscross design that mimics the taping that athletes receive before a game.
It’s not a brand that is exclusively for athletes; anyone at any fitness level can enjoy wearing C3fit products and benefit from the company’s technology. C3fit’s calf sleeves energize your tired legs and are perfect to wear if you’re simply hanging around your apartment for a relaxing evening.
All C3fit products are manufactured in Japan and shipped around the world, throughout Asia, Europe, and North America.
C3fit doesn’t have a brick-and-mortar store in New York, but all of their products are available for purchase online. For more information, please visit C3fit’s website and follow them on Facebook and Instagram @c3fit_usa.
