Under Armour Has Designed a Face Mask for Training and Exercising
There's been much debate about wearing face masks while working out. Several experts say the risk is extremely low in the outdoors but there's still a huge chance of someone coughing right when you're passing them. On another hand, a face mask makes it harder to breathe.

Well, we've found the solution and it's still a face mask. This time, it's one that's specially designed for working out, exercising, and training. Enter Under Armour's UA Sportmask, a high-performance mask that's made to be worn all day and when playing sports.
Under Armour started building prototypes of the Sportsmask as soon as health officials stressed the importance of face masks. The result is a design that gives you the airflow you need, as well as a cool feel. According to Under Armour, it's best for running and training.
"At Under Armour, we always want to be part of the solution, especially during this extremely challenging time," said CEO of Under Armour Patrik Frisk. "We specifically designed this mask for athletes and for all of us who want to exercise and train while also keeping ourselves, and those around us, safe."
Priced at $30 (approximately P1,500), the mask has been created with the utmost attention to detail. It has a water-resistant outer shell, anti-microbial treatment on the inside, and it lets air through a polyurethane open-cell foam.
The UA Sportsmask is available in four sizes and can easily be washed. Now, for some bad news: As of writing, the mask is sold out. But, don't worry: You can still pre-order it now and it will ship by August. It's a long wait but it's worth it.
