ViewSPORT is a new company focused on training smarter by using sweat activated technology. Their t-shirts “show your work” because as you sweat through the shirt, hidden text and a logo emerge, letting you (and everyone near you) know just how hard you’re working. The more you sweat, the more the image comes through.
The guys over there sent me a couple t-shirts to try out, and this past weekend I was giving a lesson so I thought I’d take it for a spin. When I give a lesson, it’s as much a workout for me as for the kid I’m working with. Making 200+ feeds on the run is tiring, especially when you don’t play all the time or get to the gym… well, ever. As you can see below, I was putting in work.
ViewSPORT sells the shirts for $25 online and they are available in a bunch of different shades of grey with 3-4 different slogans or logos on them. The best option for these shirts will be in the team order department. ViewSPORT can do custom work with any logo or lettering, so just imagine if all the guys on your team were in the weight room before the season wearing shirts that said “Chapman Lacrosse” or “Head, Heart, Hustle”. Those are cheesy examples, but you get the point… show your work and what you’re working for.
Overall, the shirts are comfortable, remind me of those awesome hypercolor shirts from the 90s (except these are for athletes and hypercolor are for hipsters), they do something kind of useful and they even allow you to be creative.
The company is still pretty young and I can only imagine their product will improve. For an overview of the company, you can check out this Democrat Chronicle article. This ViewSPORT shirt gets a really solid 7 out of 10 and if you know our rating system then you know a 7 is very good – especially for a brand new product.
