What to Wear to the Gym
What you wear to the gym can help you get into the right mindset and increase your performance. Plus, it can make you feel good while you’re doing it.
How can I be confident in leggings?
The most important thing to consider when you’re shopping for workout clothing is the quality. Don’t settle for cheap and poorly-made gear that will not last. It’s also best to choose clothes that are made of fabrics that keep you cool and dry during your workouts, preventing heat illnesses.
Wicking Fabrics: The most effective way to eliminate sweat is to wick it away from your skin so it can evaporate through the surface of the fabric. This will keep you feeling fresh and dry throughout your workout and post-workout, too.
Breathable Fabrics: Choosing workout clothing with breathable fabrics like spandex, nylon and tech-driven materials such as Dri-FIT or Coolmax will help keep you cool and dry by pulling moisture away from your skin and evaporating it through the fabric’s surface.
Compression Gear: Adding compression workout clothes to your activewear can reduce the buildup of lactic acid that happens during intense anaerobic exercise. This reduces the pain, fatigue and cramping that can put a damper on your mood.
If you’re looking for a new pair of leggings or shorts, check out Fabletics, which makes high-waisted compression gear that’s perfect for any athletic activity. Its moisture-wicking fabric will keep you cool and comfortable while allowing full range of motion. The fabric also helps to prevent chafing.
