What To Look for in Your Gym Wear

27th Nov 2014

Physical exercise is the most effective way to maintain health and fitness and overall well-being. Whether it is weightlifting, stretching, running, dancing, etc, every one of these exercises help to shed that winter weight, as well as shape the body effectively. Aside from the physical aspects, exercising also helps strengthen the muscles, cardiovascular system, and improve the immune system that helps prevent different illnesses such as heart ailments, diabetes, obesity, etc.

Most people are not aware of the fact that properly chosen outfits can help them to exercise much better and for longer period of time. It is important that before you begin any workout program, you have to have proper attire, especially gym wear, which can not only help you workout effectively, but motivate you to start that new regime! 

When you go shopping for some nice  gym wear, oftentimes these clothes are quite expensive, particularly the designer brands or those with special patterns and materials. A lot of the time, you are paying for the brand and their logos plastered across their products. BlankClothing is great for athletics that don't want to advertise other sponsors. 

What you can do is check if it is made from a good quality fabric or not. A good fabric will fit well and allow your body to breathe. You can also add some relaxed clothing to layer up so you can keep warm before your internal body heat kicks it up a notch.

The most widely used fabrics for gym wear are cotton and synthetic materials like polyester. Although cotton is great for daily activities and also for workouts, the drawbacks are that it accumulates moisture and does not enable the skin to breathe as comfortably as synthetic materials. What you need to look for are quick dry fabrics or  bamboo, which help wick sweat away from the body.

If you are more serious about your exercising, you can look into  compressions that help improve circulation & post-recovery.
