While the gym obviously isn’t a club or fashion show, having the right clothes to workout in can help motivate you and make you feel more comfortable when working up a sweat 💦
Q: “ What would you recommend wearing to the gym? “
A : That is all going to be dependent on personal preference, but there are some main guide lines I do suggest when workout shopping 💁🏻♀️ ( take it from the legging queen herself 👸🏻 ) ——————————————————————————
1️⃣ Sports Bras — ALWAYS TRY ON THE SPORTS BRA! I’m so guilty for this and I know other women are too, we are just to lazy to try it on and already know our size but often times this can change especially if you have weight fluctuation. Jump around in it, twist side to side, maybe do some stretches and of course always look for something somewhat supportive for when you’re doing vigorous activity.
2️⃣ Tanks, Shirts and Tops — While in the past oversized shirts and sweets were rules of the gym the modern days now called for a new trend of tighter fitted clothing which is great for fitness professionals as it allows us a better view of your actual posture.
3️⃣ Leggings, Shorts and Bottoms — Choosing your bottoms really comes down to the type of movement you’ll be doing in the gym. Look for good quality fabrics that don’t stretch out or lose elasticity after a few wears. Something that I like to look for is leggings with pockets ( 💥 @lululemon
) leggings with scrunch bum ( 💥 @cutebootylounge
) and leggings with adjustable waist lines ( 💥 @nikesportswear
4️⃣ Footwear — PLEASE do not wear your sandals or bare feet in the gym, this is so unsanitary 🤮 not to mention dangerous because I’ll probably walk by you just to drop a plate on your toe and teach you to pick up your gym etiquette 🤭🤫 If you’re serious and looking to keep your posture and form correct, go to a retail store that specializes in sports goods and get them to help recommend a shoe that is compatible with your foot ( ex. If you have sunken arches or have bunions ) ————————————————————————— What is your favourite clothing brand when shopping for cute fitness gear!?
