Look Good, Feel Good, While Working Out!

The positive impact exercise has on your health and happiness is often underestimated. Working out releases endorphins in the brain and raises your serotonin levels which contributes to your overall happiness.

Studies show that most women feel judged on their appearance when in the gym which results in a less productive workout and even their desire to leave.

Looking and feeling good in your gym clothes is a great way to motivate yourself and feel confident while you are exercising, and you will be inclined to exercise more often.

What To Wear

In recent years, the gym apparel industry has exploded and is continuing to soar thanks to likes of Instagram and fitness influencers that never fail to look good working out. But how do they do it?

The key to looking and feeling good in the gym is to choose items that suit the shape of your body. Not only will this offer maximum comfort, but this will contribute to your overall confidence while working out, so you don’t feel like you have to avoid the big mirrors.

Dodge the embarrassing underwear lines by staying clear of sheer leggings. Investing in a good quality pair of high waisted, black leggings will automatically increase your confidence as they will accentuate your waist and highlight your curves by hugging you in all the right places.

Colour coordinating your gym style is a great way of making it look like you’ve made a little more effort for the gym without looking like you have made too much. Whether you choose to match your top to your pants or your jacket to your trainers, you’re most definitely going to look chic while still being able to reach the top of your fitness game.

Size Matters

Whatever your preferred style of gym apparel, make sure you wear the correct size and shape for your body. Although you might be tempted to hide beneath baggy layers, you will actually feel more confident if you have taken the time to find something that fits your body shape true to size.

Consider what activities you do the most and base your gym wardrobe around this. For instance, baggy trousers aren’t particularly feasible for cycling or spinning and long flowing top won’t keep you covered whilst doing yoga. A fitted performance top works for pretty much everything.

Clothing trends are constantly changing and evolving, even in the fitness world. Remember that basics never go out of style so if you are spoilt for choice or intimidated by the vast range of styles, stick to basics such as black yoga pants as these are a timeless piece.

Fancy Footwear

Although it isn’t essential that you splurge on some fancy trainers for the gym, you choice of footwear contributes significantly to your overall performance in the gym. What you do in the gym should determine what footwear you choose.

Often modelled by Instagram fitness influencer GracefitUK, white converse are the perfect gym shoes for looking cute whilst working out. The flat sole makes them ideal for lifting heavy weights and squatting resulting in greater impact on the muscles.

If you’re a morning run kind of girl that needs a little extra kick to get you out the door, then why not opt for some bright pink running trainers to add a little fun and style to your gym outfit. Not only do these look great in summer with a tan, but the bright colour and cute style will actually motivate you to run as you will feel good wearing them.

Get Your Gym Face On

Ideally, makeup shouldn’t be worn in the gym however many women find that it makes them feel more confident. If you are someone that likes to wear makeup to the gym, then it is important to use light weight products that won’t clog your skin. Invest in some tinted moisturiser as this will hide blemishes and redness, as well as allowing your skin to breath.

Invest in some waterproof mascara as this will make you appear more awake and fresher, without wearing a full face of makeup. Everyone’s mascara preferences differ so you may have to spend some time searching for the right one. The Revlon Waterproof Mascara is renowned for having one of the best brush heads on the market due to it being super quick and easy to apply making it a great choice for your gym mascara.

Accessorise

A jazzy hold-all bag will not only contribute to your overall gym style, but it will also make your like a lot easier when transporting around the gym. It is never a good look trying to juggle your headphone, towel, water bottle and phone all in one go.

Investing in some wireless earphones for working out will mean you don’t have to worry about a cable getting stuck or tangled on something. You can also get noise cancelling earphones which block out the noise of the gym, helping you to stay focused while exercising.
