Best Fitness Gears For Getting And Staying Active
For my workouts I use leggings because they are very practical and comfortable to wear. Leggings usually come in various lengths such as knee high, mid-calf, ankle length or bike shorts. Most women I know prefer leggings but if you have slimmer thighs you may opt for a pair of sweat shorts.
There are also lots of colours and fun patterns to choose from as well as different brands and customisations. You can get them with or without pockets, high-waisted and things like that.

Sweatpants & Joggers
On the days when I am not feeling to wear anything fitted I would wear a pair of sweatpants or joggers. They are much more loose fitting especially if you don’t want to show off the curves.

With the evolution of so many fitness brands there’s a pair of sneakers in every price range for everyone. Whether you are loyal to a particular brand or like trying new styles, the possibilities are endless. You should always choose a sneakers based on the activity you will be doing the most.
For instance I usually buy walking and running shoes because I mainly use them at the gym or for walking. They are lightweight, soft and suited for these types of activities. Don’t ever use your lifestyle sneakers for workouts or excessive walking because they will hurt and bruise your feet.
Worse case they can even damage your feet so I recommended that you seek professional advise if you are not sure. Different shoes may be required for more rigid training such as jumping and tennis for example.
Nothing beats working out in the comfort of your home on your yoga mat. While your favourite fitness instructor video playing in the background.
Having the right support for your boobs while working out goes without saying. It’s just one of those things that you should invest in if you engaged in a lot of sporting activities. Even if its just walking, I highly recommended getting some good sports bras.
Look for one that has good support for both your boobs and back. Ladies I am sure you don’t want your boobs to droop like that of an old lady before its time.

Sports Jackets & Hoodies
Not a must-have but you may prefer to wear sports jackets during the colder months. Or if you want to build a faster sweat while at the gym or outdoors, you can always throw on a jacket over your top or bra.

Tank Tops & Tees
Tops are my go-to for my workouts simply because my tummy is not as sexy as it used to be. So back then I would switch up between wearing sports bras or tank tops. But now I only use sports bra below my tops or t-shirts maybe until I my tummy is back to being flat flat.

You don’t need a Apple or Fitbit smart watch but if you have one it’s a cool gadget to have. Especially if you hate carrying around your phone with you at the gym or outdoors.
Alternatively, you can use your smartphone and download a fitness app to keep track of your fitness goals. If you are going to be carrying around your phone its a good idea to wear leggings with pockets or purchase a sports phone case.

I like taking my own water bottle when I am going outside to exercise or at the gym. Water bottles have become somewhat trendy over the past couple years. But more importantly you should always try to keep hydrating during your exercises.
There are a wide variety of brands on the market now and they are usually available in glass, stainless steel and BPA free plastic.

When I am doing my workouts I enjoy listening to the music that I like or I look at videos. It takes my mind off how much calories I already burnt and how many more to go.
It also keeps me pumped with the right adrenaline I need and helps pass the time as well. There are tons of affordable alternatives to the Apple EarPods.
