How to Shop for Workout Clothes

List: Posted: 12/10/10

When performing your daily exercises, it is important for your health and safety that you have the right workout clothes.  Without this clothing, you may find the need to adjust them constantly, or suffer from trips or falls caused by too-long hems or wearing the incorrect shoes. Here are a few tips that will help you through the shopping process...

Match the Garments to the Activity

When shopping for workout clothes, you should make sure that you are matching your clothing to the activity.  For instance, if you are going to perform yoga exercises, then loose fitting clothes may not be the best choice.  Alternatively, you can find form-fitting tops and pants that are perfect for yoga.  Workout clothes that conform to the specific task are ideal.

Pick the right time of day for shoe-shopping

When buying sports shoes, remember that you feet naturally swell in the afternoon or after a long shopping session pounding the sidewalks. This may lead to those snug-fitting shoes you tried on in the store 'magically' becoming too loose when you get out there on the tennis court. Always do your shoe-shopping first, or remember to compensate by buying a tighter-fit of shoe if you must shop after sundown.

Simple is Better

Before purchasing the workout clothes that you are interested in, you should try on each item (men - this means you too!).  Something that looks good on the peg may have a weird fit, scratchy inner lining, or annoying internal tags that can't be easily removed. Garments that are simple to use and care for are always a better choice when working out as you'll be washing them (ideally!) after each use.

Complement Your Personality

You should also have fun with your workout clothes.  Purchase garments in the designs and colors that fit your personality.  Having a sense of style while working out is a great way to enjoy your exercises.
