The idea of hitting the gym on a regular basis is super exciting at first, and after several weeks it usually turns into drag, but fear not because there are little ways how you can keep your motivation high and stick to your gym goals like never before. Looking good in your own skin and feeling comfortable as you go through the exercises is one of the ways how us girls keep coming back to the place of pain and eventually gain. No matter what the reason that brought you to the gym, be it health problems, dating goals at any age including senior dating or your pure love of fitness, we’d like to present our top 4 fashion tips that will make you look good as you pump up the iron.
#1: Comfy Shoes In Bright Colors
Bright colors when it comes to footwear, especially sneakers, are still everywhere this season, so let your imagination run wild when you go shoe shopping, and opt for a hot pink or a neon green pair. Make sure they are made of high-quality fabrics that are going to protect your skin once you start sweating, and that they are sturdy enough to protect your ankles from getting twisted. In addition to serving their purpose health-wise, bright-color sneakers will more than serve their purpose fashion-wise because they’ll be your statement piece at the gym, and you’ll be able to create your little outfits around them.
#2: Comfortable Leggings
Wearing leggings to the gym that are tight-fitting will ensure your bottoms don’t get in the way when you need to do some gravity-defying exercises or stretches. You need to make sure they are comfortable enough as to not restrict any movement despite the fact that they are tight. At the same time, the fabric they’re made out of needs to be breathable and highly sweat absorbent. If you go for sneakers that are screaming ‘look at me,’ it’s probably a good idea to opt for black leggings that will go with anything. Stay away from full length because you’ll be way too hot in those come warmer weather, and choose a style that is cut a few inches above your ankles.
#3: Performance Tops That Keep Everything In Place
Most makes design tops that if made in other fabrics could be rocked at a party because they come with deep cleavage, a bare back or are simply so skimpy they make more than a few heads turn. Stay away from those because you don’t want to be worrying about your clothes more than your postures as you move through your routine. In the fall and springtime, opt for short sleeves,so you don’t get too cold, and in the summer a performance tank top with wide straps will do. The top you choose needs to hold your chest in place and offer enough support without being too tight. Again, this is your chance to go crazy with color without even worrying about trying to match your top with your sneakers.
#4: Accessories And Gym Don’t Mix
All you need when it comes to accessories is a good hair elastic or a headband if you prefer those, and that’s pretty much it. Any jewelry, whether designed for the gym or a girl on the go would just disrupt your flow of energy and would impede your workout, which is not only a physical but also a mental massage. Come to the gym wearing whatever you like, but take it all off as you get ready to get your blood flow and heart rate going without worrying about a necklace that can get stuck on equipment or a bracelet that flies up and down your arm, shifting your focus from your muscles and onto external factors that have no business interfering with your exercise.
