Just mastering a handful of pull-ups is hard enough — let alone doing a pull up with sweat dripping down your face, into your eyes, and well, into every crevice of your body. Fun times. Hats (baseball caps, namely) keep your sweat and messy gym hair under control (sort of), allowing you to stay in #beastmode all workout long. See? It’s possible.
Whether you’re lifting, running or just strolling around the block, these hats — ranging in price and purpose — will finally give you the relief you didn’t even know you needed.
If you want to show people just how busy you are…
Get your “can’t you see I’m working here?” face ready. This LOL-worthy hat is the trademark slogan for Outdoor Voices — and we can totally see why. One thing’s for sure: whether you have an intense workout or a rest day, you’re still “doing things” while wearing this adorable hat.

If you want a feminine touch…
Most fitness hats are black because they hide ugly sweat stains… except for this gorgeous white floral hat by CALIA. Sure, it’s cute — but it also has mesh paneling that will keep your head cool from start to finish.
