Whether you’re an avid yogi, addicted to the HIIT, or prefer to make a splash, you need to make sure you look utterly gorgeous and that your gym wear works as hard as you do. Comfort is key and style is an important bonus. Your outfit should never be a distracting factor during a workout.
Here is how I have tackled the new year workout wardrobe challenge:
I practice Bikram and it is all about dressing for the temperature of the class. I realised this after several embarrassing fainting episodes and the desire to get completely naked to try and make it bearable (luckily for my fellow yogis, I resisted!) For hot yoga I go for a bra top and capri pants with Sweaty Betty and Lululelon as my go-to brands.
HIIT & Running
It’s all about the bra and the feet. Make sure you have enough support in both areas. I have used Nike for bespoke fitting of both and it has paid off. I can now concentrate on training instead of things bouncing about and worrying about my knees and hips.
I have always swum and I try to get to the pool twice per week. I always feel long and lean after a swim, as well as hungry! Swimming requires a suit which can support and stabilise you in the water, along with quality, tight-fitting goggles and a swim cap. I like the new improved Speedo Fit Pinnacle Kickback swimsuit (it looks good in the sauna afterwards as well).
