Fab Fitness: Update Your Workout Gear to Boost Your Motivation!
There is nothing cute about ratty sweats and two sizes too big t-shirts right? So why is this standard workout gear for so many of us? If one of the reasons we go to the gym is to look good in our clothes, why are we rollin’ up on a workout looking schlumpy and frumpy?
You know that feeling you get when you strut your stuff in your sexiest pumps or that pair of jeans that makes you feel like you could put JLo’s butt to shame? Experts say that what you wear to get your workout on can increase your confidence and motivation too. #BOOM
Now, I’m not telling you to wear your stilettos to your next workout, that would be cray, but when you look good, you feel good and what better place to evoke good feelings than the gym?
*Side note* Have you noticed the insane amount of mirrors they have in those joints? That’s reason enough for me.
When shopping for good quality workout gear, you should keep a few things in mind:
- Breathable and moisture-wicking fabrics will make you more comfy
- Consider the activity; Yoga gear should be form-fitting as to not give anyone a ‘show’ during all that bending and stretching
- Don’t forget your foundation; make sure to get a comfortable and supportive sports bra and panties
- If possible, try before you buy; Be sure the clothes can bend and stretch with you to avoid any embarrassing wardrobe malfunctions
- Not all sneakers are created equal; Running shoes are lighter and have more cushion than trainers. This is another area where the type of exercise should be considered
Now go forth and treat yourself to some fab workout gear that shows of your style and makes you feel good.
’til next time…
I completely agree! However you feel about yourself has a lot to do with the quality of your workout. Exercising with a positive attitude is much more effective overall. #agreed 🙂

So true. That’s why I took my last pic in my one-piece workout outfit. It’s my favorite and I felt good in it. That’s saying a lot because I usually don’t want to take pics in regular clothes.
Ohhhhh so THIS is why I don’t stay consistent with my workouts! #GottaGoShopping Thanks for the excuse…errr…reason/necessity to go buy some workout gear 🙂

Yes, it’s great to look stylish and head to the gym.
But sometimes the price of workout gear is pretty prohibitive.
I only buy it on sale.

Great selection. I do feel more motivated with nicer gym clothes.

That is a good idea. When you are looking good whle you work out, it gives a sublte message and reinforces one of they points for working out – you want to look good.
I love these pieces! Comfort is key and when you feel and look good, you definitely feel more comfortable working out!

These outfits are cute & comfortable. I always feel better when I look better working out.

I agree 100%. The problem I have is that if it is too fabulous then I don’t want to mess it up by sweating in it. I guess that is the reason I have not been out running….:(
