Workout Clothes

Working Out in 1923

I'm not necessarily one of those people that believe a new year equals a new workout. I think it's important to work out all year long to live a healthy life, but I am a firm believer in having good workout clothes!

 I know what some of you are thinking "You're just going to sweat, so why invest in expensive clothes?".

Why? Here are my reasons:

1. You most likely are working out in public (even if you're not), you need to look presentable.
2. The better you look, the better you will feel and the more motivated you will be to push harder, run faster or just get moving.
3. You will be sweating and therefore you will need to wash these clothes...often! Having clothes that last after being washed a few times a week is important.

Therefore I am not saying you should spend all your Christmas money on new work out clothes, but if your workout clothes look like this then maybe you should consider it.

 I am saying at the bare minimum invest in a good pair of leggings/tights that fit you right now (nothing too baggy or too tight). If you are blessed with a bigger chest, then invest in a really good sports bra too. If you're not then Champion found at Target makes great and affordable options.

If you need somewhere to start check out AthletaUnder Armour or Lululemon.

Last piece of advice -make sure to try everything on and move around in the new clothes to make sure they fit before wearing them out in public.

Now get out there and start sweating it out... in your new workout clothes!

  1. I am really happy to avail an awesome deal on two pairs of alo leggings and tank tops. I need proper gear for my Yoga sessions for a long time and finally found something that perfectly fit my requirements as well as budget. The gear holds in my bulges very nicely.
