Look Good in Work-Out Wear
Alright ladies, it’s time to take off the baggy tee shirts and sweatpants. An accomplished feeling during a work out is a must-have attitude, however, a visually appealing work-out outfit can boost you up even more. Now you may be thinking, “there’s no need to impress anyone,” or “we’re going to get hot and sweaty anyways.” The point is to build that self-esteem for yourself as you’re running on the treadmill or lifting weights. It’s time to invest in a new workout wardrobe!
Your workout apparel should not reveal too much of your body to give you an uncomfortable, overexposed feeling, but it should also not be large to the extent where you feel like you’re swimming in your clothes. If you don’t feel very comfortable with your body, consider wearing a zippered hoodie paired with lounge pants instead of an XXL tee shirt with thick sweatpants.
The Pink Collection at Victoria Secret has a variety of great workout wear. Try their signature sweats in a color of your choice. The $39.50 hip vintage slim pant has a comfy and sexy signature fit. Their Wear Everywhere zip hoodie with a drawstring hood, also $39.50, is a favorite for sporting a simple look.
Forever 21 has an affordable collection of activewear for you to get physical in. The Stripped Stretch Fitness Tank costs an affordabe $5.80, and the Activity V-Neck Tee has an eye popping neon yellow color for only $4.80.
Now onto sportsbras! A good sportsbra is vital in providing you with comfort and support as you exercise. Try one like the Aerie F.I.T. workout bra for $24.50 or the Victoria Secret’s Body-Wick system seamless cami bra in prints or solids for $26.00 each.
Last but not least, sneakers. We all know that sneakers that are both stylish and functional are often rare to find. So here are some suggestions for you. When buying a pair of sneakers, focus on simple designs and colors. The Nike ‘Free 5.0 V4′ Running Shoe at the price of $55.90 is a light-weight mesh shoe that mimics barefoot running while at the same time provides great cushioning and support. The Puma Speeder Mesh ($43.50) has a classic leather upper for long-lasting wear and mesh for comfort and breathability.
Remember, putting effort into dressing well may inspire you to work out more. The idea is that when you look good in your clothes, you feel better about what you are doing and you are going to be willing to do it more.
