“Hitting the gym” has become almost colloquial given how popular going to the gym has become. Add to the growing number of gyms and the growing popularity of personal trainers the emphasis on fitness that’s placed these days, and you’ll know what we mean. However, even though more and more people have begun going to the gym and working out, few have mastered the art of proper gym wear.
This blog is all about telling you what you should be wearing before heading out to a gym.
Before We Begin
Before we get down to tell you what to and what not to wear, keep this in mind: everything that you wear in a gym needs to be flexible. It also needs to be thin but durable fabric. The idea is to keep yourself comfortable while also making you feel confident. This will motivate you to take your workout more seriously. Additionally, when you catch a glimpse of yourself in the mirror and see how great you look in your workout clothes, the motivation will mushroom straight out of the ballpark!
What to Wear
T-Shirts : Polyester T-shirts work best as they allow you to breathe. Make sure you’re either going for your specific size or free-size.
Joggers or Shorts: For the legwear, joggers and shorts is the standard combination. They should be lightweight and rather narrow. You need to be flexible and move freely in these.
Proper Shoes: Your first criteria for getting shoes should be to look for comfort. Runners are great for cardio (and, of course, for running). For heavyweight lifters or those who’re into squats and deadlifts, ankle-supporting power-lifting shoes are the best.
What Not to Wear
Since we’re at it, avoid the following to ensure that you’re not making your time at the gym unfashionable.
Shirt or Shirtless? You’re neither in a boxing ring nor in a Terminator remake. Wear a shirt no matter when you’re working out.
Appropriate Armpit Gap: The appropriate armpit gap for your shorts is for it not to exceed your hand’s width. The same goes for tank tops.
Shorts: Of course they’re called shorts, but there’s a limit to their shortness. Shorts can’t be short enough to expose the nether regions.
