Gym Apparel

Most of us tend to flock towards whatever a high profile athlete or celebrity is wearing because we like it, and we assume if they wear it, it must be good. I, unlike many others tend to go against the grain a small bit and wear what the majority of people would probably not wear to the gym because it’s not exactly stylish. However, I feel comfortable wearing it and it allows for movement, it is appropriate attire and most of the time it is breathable material (although many times, I don’t do so well in that department). I personal believe that people should wear clothing that is all 3 three of those things: allows for movement, breathable material, and fits you comfortably. Not something many people give a care about, but something you should consider when shopping for a new gym outfit. 

 

The reason it’s more important to shop smart vs stylish is because you have to consider the type of sport you play, the kind of workouts you participate in, your body type, how often you sweat (if you sweat at all), and the environment in which you exercise in. Wearing the latest Nike leggings may add to the cute factor but the sacrifice may be that they don’t absorb sweat very well. If you are going to pay good money for your things, I want to make sure you know what to look for so that it caters to your style but also is appropriate for the activity. 

 

If you follow the 3 rules:

 
  1. allows movement
  2. breathable material
  3. comfortable clothing

You will find that it might aid to your workouts.
