Nix the plaid pj’s, people. A recent collaboration between Under Armour and star NFL quarterback, Tom Brady’s wellness brand TB12, suggests that there’s a far better uniform for good sleep – one that doesn’t involve button-up, collared tops and drawstring cotton pants. Instead, the new sleepwear du jour make use of technology to give you your best sleep, and to help you perform your best when you’re awake.
The new sleepwear line, dubbed the Sleep & Recovery System, is the first of its kind. The pajamas, which debuted earlier this year at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, use infrared technology to reduce inflammation and help you sleep better. The pajamas are especially instrumental in helping with post-workout recovery for seasoned athletes and novice exercise enthusiasts alike, especially when used in conjunction with the Under Armour Report app that works with your pj’s to help you better understand your sleep habits and improve upon them.
“I firmly believe that sleep and recovery are critical aspects of an effective and holistic training program,” Brady said in a statement regarding the Sleep & Recovery System. “Proper sleep has helped me get to where I am today as an athlete and it is something that I continue to rely on every day.
