Whether you’re in a communal exercise environment like a gym, pilates or yoga studio or you prefer to get your endorphin hit outdoors, a good workout towel is an important part of your session. Acting as a barrier between you and public exercise equipment and used to wipe the sweat off your face and body, regular workout towels are prime breeding grounds for bacteria, which is why we have taken it upon ourselves to bring our revolutionary textile innovation to gym towels.
Where it all began
Looking back, it’s hard to believe how quickly Tesalate towels became a worldwide phenomenon. From our humble debut at Bondi Markets in 2016 to the most reviewed beach product in the world, available in over 100 countries.
It all started when our founders Jacky Lam and Volkan Ozbek visited a beach at the Royal National Park in Sydney. After a swim, the two of them returned home with heavy, wet, and worst of all, sandy beach towels. This dilemma triggered a conversation that led to 18 months of researching, designing and the creation of Tesalate’s signature sand-resistant beach towels.
But the story doesn’t end there — re-inventing beach towels just wasn’t enough. Introducing our latest textile innovation product — the antibacterial workout towel.
Your antimicrobial workout towel
Every time you wipe away your sweat, wipe down equipment at the gym or lie your workout towel on the floor for a workout or stretching session, you expose your regular exercise towel to thousands of microscopic nasties. The damp environment that your towel provides is just perfect for the growth of bacteria, mould, and mildew and as you continue to use your towel throughout the session, you facilitate the spread of germs onto everything your towel comes in contact with.
But not anymore! By embedding an antimicrobial formula into the very core of our workout towel fabric, bacteria and microorganisms such as fungi like algae, mildew, and mould can no longer make your workout towel their home. So you can be confident that after multiple sweaty head, neck and hand wipes, your best workout towel will always be completely germ-free and never spread bacteria to equipment, other people and your own skin.
While most gym towels are made from plush cotton, we have combined our signature quick-drying, ultra-absorbent and custom-crafted Absorblite™ fabric from our world-famous beach towels with new antibacterial features — creating the best gym towels for sweat that stay bacteria- and odour-free. With multiple pin-thin fibres, our gym towels are much more moisture-wicking than regular towels whilst still drying in half the time, so you can sweat to your heart’s content without ever having to worry about going home with a smelly and wet workout towel.
Size does matter
Lugging around a lush bath towel or oversized exercise towel not only slows down your fitness sessions but can also be very inconvenient for those around you. Being just 100cm long and 45cm wide, our workout towels are the perfect size for gym, exercise classes and all outdoor workouts. And once you’re done, simply fold or roll up the ultra-lightweight workout sweat towel into a compact size and you’re good to go, mate.
Features that go the extra mile
While the more obvious benefits of our towels may be their game-changing textile technology, there are also more subtle features that make them the best gym towels on the market. Designed to feature two distinctive prints and patterns on either side of the towel, you can designate one side for wiping your face and body and the other for placing against gym equipment or laying on the floor — making usage extra hygienic.
