We’ve talked about equipment that you’ll need on your fitness journey, but don’t hop to those speed ropes so fast! Proper workout attire might seem redundant, but they actually help you perform your workouts better in the long run.
Consider activewear an investment into your health and fitness. It helps you be more flexible, move better and feel good, too. Not to mention how much new workout clothes just makes you want to put them on for a workout! Here are our 5 activewear essentials that you can use (& re-use) for any workout.
- Sports bra
1. Sports bra
A basic sports bra is important for any workout. It provides support for a workout that a normal bra just can’t provide. Depending on the impact of your workout, it can help to gauge how much support you’d need.
Leggings are the perfect piece of activewear to have because they can be styled with almost any look. A solid coloured one is easier to pair with literally anything, while a colourful one adds a pop to your outfit.
More of a shorts person when it comes to working out? Shorts are easy, versatile & allow your skin to breathe a little more than leggings do. You can opt for tight-fitting shorts, also known as biker shorts.
Go with regular shorts if you want something more flowy and casual, while still being suitable for any workout.
Some workouts are barefoot, but sock it up (literally) for cardio! Cotton socks are best for breathability and comfort. It also helps cushion your feet in your shoes.
Pro tip: keep an extra pair of socks in your car or your gym bag for longer days. You’ll find that you need a change more often than you think!
Hear us out on this one- good underwear is imperative to a good workout! Itchy bands, camel toes and wedgies have the potential to distract you from your workout.
