Why not get a head start (and excited about) planning your next workout outfit? Depending on the activity you’re doing, you can cater what you wear so that your look supports whatever motion you’ll be engaging in. Aside from casual athleisure wear, it’s important to have a variety of sports bras, bottoms, and shoes for your various calorie-burning activities. This way, you can maximize your workout without worrying about whether or not you have the correct footwear to brace your feet while hiking, or a top that will provide solid support—yet also enough movement for your next pilates or yoga flow class.
Read on for our guide on what to wear for different exercises.
High-Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) and cardio workouts require a workout set that will hold everything in place. Try this Good American core racer bra the next time you plan to do some interval training. You won’t have to worry about feeling exposed during your sweat session if you have a full-support bra.
When it comes to yoga, typically it’s more comfortable to wear a breathable option for your meditative workout. As far as pants go, it’s a personal preference if you’d like to keep them on the looser side or go with a classic fitted legging.
Monochrome workout sets were basically made for pilates workouts. The luxurious and stretchy fabric will allow you to move your body accordingly. And you’ll feel super stylish and fancy while working through each position.
It’s all about your shoes when you’re hiking. The better support you have on your feet the more enjoyable your walk will be. We recommend something with a sturdy yet flexible bottom. You don’t want your sneakers to feel super stiff, but you also need protection in case you step on something unexpected.
High-intensity workouts like boxing require both reinforcement and shorts or pants that allow for quick mobility. If you’re a loyal boxer, you’ll definitely want to splurge on a pair of gloves and several sets of hand wraps.
