These days there are many gadgets available to use alongside and during workouts. Of course, it’s easy to strap on a heart rate monitor and see how well you are doing on a run, but what about when simply lifting weights? Radiate Athletics has designed a shirt that changes color according to your body heat. The science behind this is that engaging your muscles causes more blood flow, and they “heat up” as you work them out more. This heat is then reflected in the changing colors of the shirt. They will have various color schemes and styles ranging from hoodies, shirts, tank tops, and sleeves, in both mens‘ and womens‘ sizes. Currently only the long and short sleeve shirts are available for pre-order, with prices between $20 to $44.99, depending on color and style.

    Wasn’t this ‘technology’ available back in the 90’s? Those shirts really only changed colour around your armpits. =S I guess that if you are actually working out then the distribution of colour change may be a bit more relevant.

    I can hope that if you are working out and have a fitting shirt that it would change color like they show rather than having the armpits change color. After all, I am sure plenty of people can change the color of a white shirts armpits relatively easily. ;)

    In high school we’d do things like heat up hand prints in inappropriate places.

    I ordered shirts from this company on April 6, 2013 and they have yet to be delivered. After speaking with the President of the Company on numerous occasions, he makes one excuse after the other as to why the shirts have not been delivered.

    After getting tired of his excuses on September 10, 2013 I asked for a refund and he said “that ain’t gonna happen.” I then told him I would file a complaint with PayPal and he said “go ahead, they can’t do anything after 45 days from the date of the order was placed.”

    I did a search on the company address and it comes back to a residence in PA. I contacted the BBB and they have received “numerous” complaints on the company’s failure to deliver product. I was referred to the State of PA Attorney Generals office so I called them and they said to file a complaint and they will open a file. I also searched them on Radiate Athletics on Facebook and the complaints are terrible.
