Gear Up and Stay Stylishly Active With This Local Activewear Brand


From protective equipment for your head down to support gear for your ankles, Womanly by Manly is there to support every part of you

Staying fit and healthy doesn’t have a universal look. You could be in full gear doing an extensive workout regimen complete with a personal trainer, or you could just be in your joggers going for a run around your neighborhood. Although staying stylish while working out was never a requirement, it can definitely boost your confidence. It might even motivate you to get up and follow that workout routine you saw online you saved two months ago. Being active takes dedication and discipline, and if a fresh set of activewear and equipment can get you moving, then this local brand has got your back.

Giving workout a pop of color

Established in 1973, Manly founder and designer Gobind Sitlani got the idea of setting up a brand specializing in activewear while browsing a magazine. Since importing products was not an option during that time, Sitlani took this as an opportunity to source and manufacture local products instead. Started by offering men’s activewear then expanding to support and protective gear, the company then branched out to womenswear nine years ago, with Womanly by Manly.

Womanly by Manly is proudly the brainchild of founder Gobind Sitlani’s granddaughter. She excitedly pitched the idea of producing vibrant and colorful cycling shorts for women when her mom, Gobind’s daughter, took over the company—then the rest was history. Starting with their Ladies Compression Shorts, the brand has now effectively broadened their market, further diversifying their range of products.

With the success of the first ever products of Womanly by Manly, they have also extended into various forms of activewear that are specially made with an inclusive size range. While the Dry Fit Apparel collection and Athleisure Wear Sets are available until 2XL, their High Rise Yoga Tights offer sizes up to 5XL. You can also brighten up every workout experience through the vivid hues of the Dry Fit Athleisure Sets, available in Pumpkin Spice, Cotton Candy, and In Love With The Coco. Another part of their extensive workout gears and accessories are Yoga Mats and Resistance Bands to name a few.

Every fitness enthusiast can find whatever they may need for their head down to their feet. From wrist supports to full-on athleisure sets, everything they produce are all proudly manufactured in their factory in Taguig with some of their fabrics even locally sourced from there as well. Their products might be stylish already but they also take it a step further through their dedicated orthopedic pieces, specifically the Lumbosacral Support and Back Support Belt to name a few. 

While the Womanly by Manly started with apparel, they also offer various accessories and active gear. If you’re planning on setting up your own home gym, their Ab Rollers, Push Up Bars, and Manly Jumping Rope might just fit your set up perfectly. From bicycle helmets to ankle supports, Manly Womanly Active Support Gear is there to support every part of your fitness journey.
