Sports and fashion run deep between Splits59 founders Jonathan Schwartz and Keith Peterson. Jonathan has competed Ironman triathlons from New Zealand to Canada and his father co-founded Calvin Klein Inc. Meanwhile, Keith was working for big-name fashion brands like Tommy Hilfiger and Dolce & Gabbana. In 2008, the two launched their women’s athleticwear line, Splits59, named after the split second difference it takes on a stopwatch to reach your personal best and push yourself harder.
Fabrics and designs
High-performance fabrics keep you motivated and moving towards that finish line while quick-dry, moisture-wicking properties ensure you stay cool and comfortable along the way. Many of their yoga leggings have strategically-placed mesh panels that improve breathability while some even have reflective properties perfect for late-night runs. Chafe-free seams ensure a comfortable fit throughout your routine with plenty of stretch incorporated into the fabric to move with you every step of the way.
Splits59’s workout wear fits true to size. But if you’re in between sizes, we suggest going up one size for the best fit.
How we wear our Splits59 favourites
We love how Splits59’s modern designs keep us looking sleek and stylish in and out of the gym. Their form-fitting leggings and capris keep up with intense workouts, from long-distance runs to sweaty CrossFit sessions. We love throwing on their tanks, tees and pullovers to layer up before or after workouts. We even find ourselves slipping on our Splits59 favourites for rest days or quick errands in the city since they’re so incredibly comfortable.
Why buy Splits59?
Through their FITPRO and FITPRO ELITE programs, Splits59 works with elite athletes and fitness professionals that test out their gear in their normal workout routines. We feel good knowing that their garments are truly put to the test. Plus, with celebs like Miranda Kerr and Emily Blunt as fans, we can definitely see ourselves looking glam in Splits59 for our next workout.
