Ten Thousand Interval Shorts Review
Ten Thousand – The Brand
Ten Thousand clothing brand has been my go-to choice for fitness attire for a while now. What I admire about Ten Thousand as a brand, is they are no-nonsense. By cutting out the “middleman” everything they make is of the highest quality. Premium materials sourced and priced fairly for the consumer. They are built to serve a purpose while still looking good.
Why Ten Thousand? One thing that draws me to the brand is their ethos, Ten Thousand hours make a master, Ten Thousand miles builds character, and Ten Thousand feet up can yield a new perspective. Interval Short (Liner)
Fit and Function
The Interval short is hands down the best activewear short I have ever worn. When purchasing the shorts you have several color options, inseam lengths, and an optional liner. Depending on your configuration the short will run you $58-$68. I personally have both short options, with and without a liner. The lined option is great for in the gym when you know you’re planning on breaking a sweat. While the no liner can also function well as a swim trunk, great for those hot summer days at the lake or river.
The fit is amazingly comfortable the waistband is soft, and the fabric is breathable yet able to take some abuse. They have a great athletic fit and stretch making them ideal for flexibility or squat day. In addition to the fit, the pockets are reliable, and it even has a “no-movement” zipper pocket for those days when you only want your keys and card while on the go.
Who are they for?
Across the website, it seems that these shorts were designed for men. Specifically, men who like to play hard, stay active, and those who do not want to change into different clothing. The development team also lives and breathes the ethos of Ten Thousand, they come from many backgrounds such as CrossFit, running, swimming, functional fitness, MMA, surfing, and even Special Forces operators. With such a diverse and well-rounded team, they are truly able to put forth fantastic products. If you feel you deserve an upgrade to the clothing you train with then these are for you!
In all honesty with this product, I have nothing bad to say about it. Some of their other products have certain cons to them but the interval short is top-notch. For some people, the cost might be a barrier to entry. They are not the cheapest training clothing out there, but they are not the most expensive either. I would like to preface the prior statement by saying you will absolutely get a product that is worth the cost.
I constantly found myself talking about these shorts to friends, so I finally decided to write about them. With all the field time I have put into the interval short both indoors and outdoors they have withstood the abuse through use test. Because of this, I cannot recommend them enough for men who lead an active lifestyle. So, go get after it, put in your Ten Thousand hours, gain a new perspective, and don’t forget to have fun in the process!
Nate Smith moved to Colorado from the Bay area California, when he was two years old. Raised among the mountains in Evergreen, Nate holds a deep reverence for being in a natural environment. When he left high school that’s when his journey of outdoor adventure truly began.
His main interests include, climbing, hunting/fishing, skiing, camping/backpacking and anything by the water. In addition to all this, Nate attended culinary school, has a background as a chef, and then pivoted into the fitness industry.
He went back to school to study holistic corrective exercise, physiology, and ELDOA; a manual therapy for the spine. Eventually opening MovNat Denver (since closed due to covid) a gym that made training for adventure and moving well in nature its priority.
Having many interests Nate has been figuring out a way to build a cohesive framework for all his passions. This framework took the shape of a lifestyle/fitness brand and podcast called Primal Aspects. The podcast is his platform to speak on all his interest and provide more detailed content for free.
In the winter months, Nate works part-time as a Ski Tech for Boone Mountain Sports. Mounting skis, doing repairs and testing the latest skis on the mountain. This job affords him the time to hone his skills as a skier and take a behind-the-scenes look at the outdoor industry.
More recently Nate has been helping to guide Hunts in Texas with Mansal Denton founder of Sacred Hunting. Mansal created sacred hunting to take men through indigenous rites of passage using hunting as the medium. Nate views hunting as the most human act, it is also the ultimate way to contribute to conservation efforts of the wilderness.
