For Genie Bouchard, visualization is a key component of success. “It's so important to dream big,” the tennis player declares, “and to work as hard as you can to achieve those dreams.”
This mind-body connection plays directly into Bouchard’s choice of training apparel. She needs gear that will activate her muscles, keep her warm and help prime her – physically and psychologically – for performance.
Inspired by the way athletes such as Bouchard employ a varied and vigorous training routine, Nike designers devised the Nike Zoned Sculpt Tight to offer support, fit and comfort for the body in motion. They looked to the six core training moves – push, pull, lunge, squat, bend and rotate – to tailor a tight that moves with the natural motion of a woman’s body, wraps and defines muscle movement and promotes a sense of fluid control.
The Nike Zoned Sculpt Tight is crafted from soft, light Dri-FIT fabric that employs an innovative knitting process to help provide compressive support to muscles around the core, quadriceps and glutes.
Simultaneously, the knit offers built-in breathability and sweat management, while the nearly seamless construction allows for freedom of movement. A higher, tilted waistband provides a firm, locked-in feel while strategic venting areas enhance cooling in key areas, such as behind the knee.
