Picking the Right Gym/Sportswear

Keeping fit should be a way of life for all of us. And the clothes we were exercising at home, at the gym or while walking/jogging, play a huge role in how successful our fitness journey will be. I like to go for quality when it comes to anything, and my sportswear are no exception. The beauty I have on above is by My Protein and it is my current sportswear kit. It feels and looks good, and it has made my fitness journey very successful so far.

When it comes to picking the right sportswear kit, here are the 5 features I look out for –

 

Stretch

I like my sportswear kit to be stretchy. Them being stretchy means I move more freely in them, which helps while exercising. When shopping for your next sportswear kit, look for pieces made from extra stretch material.

 

High Polyester Material

Go for pieces that made from high polyester material. This material is breathable, drawing sweat away from the body, keeping you comfortable and dry. This would enhance your fitness journey, trust me. The last you will be needing is a sportswear that makes you sweat.

 

Good Fit

Many of us think baggy clothes are the best for exercising but that is so far from the truth. The best fitness clothes are those that follow the shape of your body and give you a waist.

Go for Layers

Autumn is here so if you plan on going jogging, the best way to deal with changes in your body temperature is to have on layers so you can add or discard when needed.

 

Get a Sport Bra

I was one of those ladies that didn’t understand the importance of a sports bra until I started my fitness journey. A sports bra is a fitness essential. Bouncing, unsupported boobs are very uncomfortable and bad for your back. There are loads in stores now, and many are really affordable so there is no reason not to have 1 at least.

  1. I tend to go for more expensive sports bras that will really last me for years, as well as some good quality tight leggings / shorts depending on the season. I definitely need to buy some more kit now I’m exercising 5 to 6 times a week (thanks to the oh so delightful freelancer 15. Ha!)

  3. You are completely right. Us girls who like to pamper ourselves, like to look and feel good in everything we do. And I found getting some cute gym clothes that you find yourself attractive in help a lot with your motivation, and to go and show those cute leggings off! ^^

Speak your heart, don't bite your tongue.
