Ten Thousand is all about fitness clothing with a purpose

Focus on the mission rather than your statement with Ten Thousand

At Short Motivation, we love to hear about brands with a purpose, which could be the reason why the company designed their clothes in a particular manner or fabric, or how they tackled the industry in a disruptive or alternative manner. Enter Ten Thousand whose fitness range is all about reaching your goals and how they can help pursue opportunities in life, better. For Ten Thousand, it’s a quiet dedication to to your training, whether this is running, cross training or weight lifting.

The designs are subtle and minimalistic, with a view to blending in rather than standing out. Focus on the mission rather than your statement. Fabrics selected are the latest performance material and are continually evolving. There are three ranges, focused on endurance cross training and weightlifting.

Distance Pullover

The Endurance Range is all about running and consists of three items all in two colours. The Distance Short, the Distance Shirt and the Distance Pullover. The shorts are lightweight and chafe-free with Italian fabric providing cool comfort and support. The tee is no-cling, Italian made, with dry-fast properties and silver ions to prevent odour. The pullover is a Merino mix so keeps you cool and warm depending on the temperature and it has drirelease fibers to wick as much sweat as possible and is perfect for when running in cooler temperatures.

Interval Short

The Cross Training ‘interval’ range consists of the Distance Short and a Distance Shirt. The short is a four-way stretch fabric with ventilation and a waistband that is constructed for movement. There is an optional liner which is treated with silver ion for odour control so you can keep using the short over and over. The shirt is also made from odour killing, quick drying, moisture wicking, Italian knot fabric so it is perfect for demanding interval workouts.

Foundation Short

The Strength Training ‘foundation’ range consists of single item: the Foundation Short. Based on a classic board short, the fabric is mid-weight and has a wide range of motion while also being able to handle any abuse/scrapes that result from weight training. There is the classic optional liner with the silver ion antimicrobial feature for odour control.

One of the key features of the Ten Thousand brand is their OIOO ‘One in One Out’ option. When you purchase your first piece you can request to be part of OIOO, Ten Thousand will send you a package to post your old workout gear back, enabling you to declutter. The items are recycled or resold and you receive 10% off your next purchase.

Prices start at a reasonable $58 for the Foundation Short, whilst the Merino wool Distance Pullover will cost you $110. The full range is available on the Ten Thousand website and we have our eye on the Interval Short.
