Should I incorporate wearing a fragrance into my fitness routine?

As a courtesy to your fellow fitness lovers, be sure to read up on your facility’s policy on fragrance before indulging in your favourite cologne

My recommendation: As wellness culture continues to infiltrate our social lives, physical activity hubs such as gyms, fitness studios and run clubs are becoming venues to meet and mingle. Take Toronto’s Othership, for example. It′s a sauna and ice bath facility that wants to redefine how we view a night out with friends, billing its Evening Social as a place to “see and be seen.” While stylish options for flattering activewear abound and beauty brands offer cosmetics that stand up to sweat, a bit of trial and error might be required to determine how your scent is muted or amplified by your workout routine. As a courtesy to your fellow fitness lovers, be sure to read up on your facility’s policy on fragrance before indulging in your favourite cologne.
