You probably never thought about having fitted and stylish clothes before. But they can actually make your workout more efficient!
You heard that right. In my first few years of hitting the gym I thought the same thing. Why spend any money on workout clothes when that same cash could be spent on other stuff?
It’ll certainly won’t make a difference in your workouts.
Or will it?
Here are 5 ways how it will:
1. Stylish Workout Clothes Makes You Feel Better
The above title speaks for itself. When you buy new clothes and wear them you just feel better than average, don’t you? The day you wear new clothes you feel new and fresh, you feel like nothing can really stop you that day.
Good thing is that this feeling can go on for months with new clothes, it’s not just the first time. The same is true for fitness clothing. Only in this case, you’ll work out harder, pay more attention to performing the exercises in better shape and you’ll generally have a better outlook on your workout. You’ll feel like you pushed it to 110% this time.
2. They Make You More Committed
When you spend money on something you become more committed to it. When you buy some new clothes for work you feel that from now on your character changed a bit. You are now treading on a new path.
When you buy workout gear you’ll feel that there is no going back now. You’re spending money on something you believe in. You’re spending money on the need to change yourself, to workout harder and achieve the form you’ve always wanted.
The purchase is what creates the true commitment.
3. Stylish Workout Clothes Are Useful
Not the least of importance is the fact that exercise apparel is actually useful! It let’s you stretch out, it sucks up much of what you perspire and lets your body breath more easily. It is generally a good feeling to work out in these types of clothes as you have more energy from not worrying about perspiring and your body having more room to breath.
Another positive aspect is its elasticity. A lot of the times regular clothing won’t allow you to stretch out fully. And when you only do 70% of the full movement, you’ll see only 70% of the result.
4. You Are What You Wear
As the saying goes, the kind of clothing you wear makes the first impression. Not to others but to yourself! Have you ever noticed that when you dress up nicely, in all of your best clothes and go out you feel especially cool?
The reason for that is because you have already made up your mind about being good looking. And you did that because you saw the nice clothes on you.
The same happens with fitness clothing. When you dress up in all the right fits, when you feel the newness of the clothes you are mentally prepared for the workout.
You feel good, you look good, you must be good.
5. They’ll Get You The Right Kind Of Attention
Finally, fitted, good looking exercise apparel will get you the right kind of attention from girls. Now let’s not go into the money thing. It doesn’t cost a lot to dress up nicely in the gym and the chicks know this.
What matters is that you took the time to do so, to dress up nicely. As you’re looking around in the gym, looking for some equipment to use you’ll notice that you’re not just a shadow in the gym anymore. You are a breathing part of it. Girls are looking at you, guys are looking at you.
There is no bigger boost of confidence than when you know that you have some sort of standing.
And that confidence will make the difference in your workouts from now on.
