Workouts can be a great way to stay healthy and fit. But there’s no point getting yourself to the gym if you’re wearing the wrong clothes! You need to be comfortable and flexible, and not too self-conscious. At the same time, you should look stylish enough to give you the confidence you need to feel like a winner! Luckily, there are all kinds of clothes that do the job. We’ll help you find the best clothes for your workout, no matter how different your goals and tastes are.
Activewear for To & From
When it comes to workouts, you want to be comfortable. That means not having to worry about what you’re wearing. For that reason, it’s best to wear activewear that you can wear to and from the gym. That way, you’re not wasting time changing clothes when you could be working on your fitness. As for what to wear, opt for sweatpants, leggings, a T-shirt or a tank top. You’ll be comfortable and ready to go in no time.
Clothes to Put On After Your Workout
The clothes you put on after your workout are just as important as the clothes you work out in. Post-workout clothes need to be comfortable, breathable and absorbent. They should also be loose enough to allow air to circulate and your skin to breathe. A good way to achieve all of these goals is to stick to natural materials like cotton and linen. synthetics like polyester and nylon can trap heat and moisture, leading to a sweaty, uncomfortable experience. Look for clothes with a relaxed fit and a natural fiber content to make sure you stay comfortable long after your workout is done.
Layer for All Conditions
The final layer is the impermeable layer. This should be an outer layer that completely blocks the wind and rain. A hardshell jacket is perfect for this. You can also wear a water resistant poncho. A word of caution: these layers will make you hot and sweaty, so make sure you remove them as soon as your workout is complete. If it’s cold outside, you can wear a base layer, a middle layer, and an outer layer. The base layer is a thin layer of fabric that wicks away moisture from your skin. The middle layer is a insulating layer that keeps you warm. The outer layer is a waterproof and windproof layer.
Under Your Clothes
When it comes to working up a sweat, comfort is key. That’s why we recommend wearing loose-fitting clothes made from breathable materials like cotton or linen. Avoid anything too tight or constricting, as it will only make you feel uncomfortable and restrict your movement. In terms of what to wear under your clothes, try to choose fabrics that will help absorb sweat and keep you feeling dry. Our suggestion? A good old-fashioned cotton T-shirt. It’s soft, it’s absorbent, and it’s perfect for layering. Plus, it comes in a variety of colors and styles so you can mix and match to create your perfect look.
Clothes for the Way Back
When it comes to the clothes you wear to the gym, comfort should be your number one priority. You don’t want anything too tight or restrictive, especially when you’re just starting out. Give yourself plenty of room to move and breathe, and choose fabrics that will wick away moisture. Our Sport-Tek Tee is perfect for the way back. It’s made from 100% polyester jersey fabric that’s soft and comfortable, and the raglan sleeves provide a natural range of motion. Plus, it’s tag-free for a distraction-free workout.
