Looking great at the gym or while out for a run isn’t our top priority, but let’s be honest, we don’t want a bunch of strangers seeing us for the first time looking like a complete mess, either. Having confidence and dedication are key to reaching your health and fitness goals, and we all know looking and feeling good boosts confidence immensely.
No matter what your preferred style is, there are a few key tips to follow that should work for all:
Comfort is Key
Having clothing that are too tight, too loose, or ill-fitting in other ways will negatively affect your workout, as well as your confidence. Feeling uncomfortable will also affect your focus which can be unsafe during things like heavy weight training.
Quality over Quantity
Having a few, well-made pieces rather than a whole load of unethically made, cheaply priced items is definitely the way to go. Not only will quality gym clothes be better for the environment, they will also make you feel more confident. Additionally, and perhaps the most important of all, is that quality gym clothing made with particular materials will actually help you during a workout by wicking sweat away to leave you cool and dry.
Be Unapologetically Yourself
Yes, you’re at the gym and not out for a fancy dinner, but that shouldn’t stop you from expressing your own personal style.
Now that you’ve got the knowledge, it’s time to shop! Head to gumtree.co.za or your Gumtree app (click for Apple & Android) and don’t forget to use your location settings to find quality fitness clothing close to home.
