With health and hygiene more important than ever, it’s about time that gym towels got a long-overdue upgrade. By bringing our revolutionary product re-imagining skills and world-renowned textile innovation to gym towels, we are proud to introduce the latest in gym towels: the antibacterial workout towel — made with patent-pending technology and fabric in many proudly Aussie designs.
Our humble beginning
From our debut at Bondi Markets in 2016 to worldwide recognition and availability in over 100 countries, we never imagined how quickly Tesalate would take Aussie style and innovation to the rest of the world.
It all started when our founders Jacky Lam and Volkan Ozbek went for a swim at a secluded beach at Sydney’s Royal National Park. Returning home with wet, heavy, and worst of all, sandy towels, they were inspired to change the way towels work.
After many months of researching and designing, Tesalate’s signature sand-resistant beach towels were launched. But it doesn’t end there. The success of the revolutionary beach towels pointed to other areas where towels could do with a facelift. Cue our new range of antibacterial workout towels.
More than antibacterial
Whether you’re working out at the gym, doing a yoga session outdoors, or pilates at home, your exercise towel is likely to undergo a series of head, neck, and hand wipes as you get warmed up and sweaty. Once exposed to sweat and moisture, regular fitness towels act as an excellent breeding ground for bacteria, mold, and mildew.
But not anymore. With a safe, antimicrobial formula built into the very core of our fabric, Tesalate workout towels are not just effective against bacteria but also prevent the growth of microorganisms such as fungi like algae, mildew, and mold. Now you can sweat out toxins without any guilt of spreading germs or ruining your favorite gym towel — score!
Odor-free workout towels
After years of perfecting our fast-drying fabric for our highly-rated beach towels, we have created entirely new fabric technology called Novaguard™ with our new antibacterial features. Rapid-drying and germ-free, our workout towels stay fresh and odorless. See you later (or never) wet and smelly gym sweat towels!
From the same founders, designers, and creative spirit that invented the original sand-free beach towel, Tesalate workout towels are just as thoughtfully crafted. Featuring two distinctive Aussie-designed prints and patterns on either side, you can now easily dedicate one side to placing against gym equipment or on the floor while strictly using the other side to wipe your face and body. Keeping things extra hygienic.
Made from our custom-engineered fabric, Teslate gym towels are ultra-absorbent, lightweight, and quick-drying — so you can sweat your heart out without having to lug home or pack away a soggy, smelly workout towel.
Australian-designed gym towels
From neon leopard print to multicolored floral, rainbow tie-dye, and even psychedelic shapes, our workout towels are 100% Australian-designed and available in over 15 prints. Whether you prefer a slick and simple design or a bright and eye-catching style, our range of gym towels is sure to have something for everyone.
What are the best gym towels?
Quick-drying, antibacterial, lightweight and absorbent, are just a few of the features that make our towels the best workout towels. Unlike regular gym towels, Tesalate gym towels are crafted from a fast-drying, patent-pending fabric with in-built antimicrobial properties. This means you can wipe away sweat without having to worry about creating a moist, bacteria-promoting environment in your gym towel. Drying in half the time of a regular towel, you can take home a dry and germ-free towel after every workout.
In addition to its antibacterial and rapid-drying properties, our custom-engineered gym towel fabric is super lightweight — even after an intense sweat session. Simply roll or fold up one of our workout towels and you’ve got a compact towel that is good to go.
How do Tesalate workout towels work?
By lacing a non-toxic, antibacterial solution into the fabric of our workout towels, all germs, bacteria, and fungi are prevented from making their home in your towel — even in wet and sweaty conditions that usually make for prime breeding grounds for bacteria.
While most gym towels are made from dense cotton, our signature quick-drying and ultra-absorbent towels are created from our custom-crafted Absorblite™ fabric. With multiple absorbent thin fibers, our towels are much more moisture-wicking than regular towels whilst still drying in half the time! You can rest assured that after every gym session, yoga class, or pilates routine, your Tesalate gym towel will be dry and bacteria-free.
Are gym towels sanitary?
Wiping down gym equipment, placing your gym towel on the floor, and wiping your own face and body exposes your gym towel to countless nasties and germs. Being saturated with sweat throughout and after every workout, regular gym towels become a prime breeding ground for bacteria.
But a Tesalate workout towel isn’t your regular gym towel. Thanks to our patent-pending fabric, your workout towel is no place for bacteria and germs. With an in-built antibacterial formula in the very core of its fabric, your Tesalate workout towel prevents bacteria from surviving and reproducing.
On top of this, our range of fitness towels is crafted from our signature Absorblite™ fabric. Drying in half the time of regular towels and absorbing large quantities of moisture, you can wipe away sweat as you need without having to take home a wet and smelly towel.
How often should I wash my exercise towel?
As a rule of thumb, you should wash your workout towel after every use to keep it hygienic and clean. While our exercise towels are odor- and bacteria-free, regular washes will keep them looking and feeling great.
All Tesalate towels are super easy to wash and care for. Throw your workout towel into your machine for a cold temperature washing cycle then hang it up to airdry — being quick-drying you don’t need to tumble dry them.
Towel tip: drying beach, bath, and workout towels on low heat settings can actually increase their softness and even prolong their life while high-heat tumble drying can harden your towel’s fibers and make them feel harsh on your skin.
Do gym towels spread germs?
Every time you wipe down a piece of gym equipment with a regular gym towel or lie it on the floor for a workout or stretching session, you are facilitating the spread of germs. As they get moist and sweaty throughout a workout, regular gym towels become prime environments for the survival and growth of bacteria and microorganisms. When you wipe away sweat with a regular gym towel, place it down on gym equipment, or carry it home, you spread those germs onto everything they come in contact with.
Tesalate gym towels, however, prevent the spread of bacteria from workout towels to equipment, other people, and your own skin. By creating a customized antibacterial formula that is embedded in the very core of our exercise towel’s fabric, bacteria and microorganisms from sweat and equipment cannot survive on our towels. Every time you wipe your face or body or place your gym towel on a piece of gym equipment, you can be sure that your gym towel is not spreading any germs.
What size sports towel do I need for the gym?
100cm long and 45cm wide, Tesalate workout towels are perfect for the gym, yoga sessions, and all outdoor fitness sessions. Once you’re done with your workout, easily roll up your towel into a tiny size to take it anywhere and everywhere.
