Whether you are a yoga girl or a treadmill chick, there are a few wearable essentials that you need to stay in style while sweating it out at the gym. Working out is one of the few physical activities that allow your body to perform at its full potential. Thus, dressing appropriately and in the proper active wear becomes important to ensure that you don’t have any “accidental slips”. Sure you will get super fit but nothing is worth a boob spilling out from a badly fitted bra or a ripped crotch while doing lunges.
And that is just the tip of the iceberg. Dressing incorrectly can do your more harm than good. Ill-fitted bras can lead to stretch marks and a painful workout experience. Swampy pants can lead to irritation and an unpleasant feeling throughout your routine and bad shoes on a fitness equipment can really damage your feet. Amateur or a pro, everybody needs to have these basic essentials checked for a smooth session at the gym. Happy lifting!
