Got Sweat? Get a Handana!

Let’s talk about sweat. We all sweat when we work out (or should!), so dedicating an entire post to controlling sweat is inevitable – no, essential. Some people love being drenched in it, others really hate it. But everyone can agree that whatever your feelings about sweat, we all need a hand managing it. Sometimes sweat can get in the way of a great workout: sweat dripping into your eyes, losing your grip on sports equipment, and breakouts. Instead of reaching for a sweat towel or using a headband, you can give the Handana a try.



You have probably heard the saying “I don’t sweat, I sparkle”. Ha, that’s putting it sweetly! If that were the case than some people would look like a disco ball! The amount a person sweats depends on more than your level of exertion: genetics, gender, hydration, and hormones all play key roles. But whether you “sparkle” or gush, it is nice to have something on hand to control the liquid awesome.


I got a Handana to try out and I ran it through several different workouts to see how it performed:

  • Rowing machine
  • Stationary bike
  • Weight lifting (yep, it works when lifting weights, too!)
  • Pull-ups, pushups, dips, etc.
  • Zumba

I wasn’t sure how well the Handana would do during weight lifting and strength training, but it still performed beautifully! I replaced my right weight glove with the Handana and it didn’t slip around or fall off. I machine washed and dried my Handana 2 times and it was still in good shape. I may lay off the machine drying though just to make sure the heat doesn’t destroy the elasticity in the fabric.


Overall, here are the things I loved most about the Handana:

  • Fabric: soft, wickable, stretchable, maintains it’s shape
  • Convenient and portable!
  • Ambidextrous
  • Sturdy – stood up to weight lifting and washing with no tears so far
  • Stylish: nice colors and cute design

The Handana is a perfect way to control your sweat when you still need to use your hands and don’t want to tote a small towel around. You can even get one for each hand for big sweaters or endurance workouts. Got friends who sweat? Handana makes a great gift, too!

You can also check out Handana at the Disney Princess Half Marathon Expo in February and you can support the Handana company through their page on KickStarter !
