what to look for when
Nothing kills your motivation to move quicker than a workout outfit that offers zero comfort.
Whether you're looking for a cute new something to add to your active wardrobe or building it up
from the very beginning, it's all about making sure you have the right pieces. Beyond just being
the perfect fit for your body, make sure that they're the perfect fit for your workout too.
you run for the tills, make this your go-to shopping game plan:
Nothing beats that feel-good confidence you get from wearing something that looks and feels like
a win, and it's that confidence that'll inspire you to keep on working out. So before you make a
beeline for the baggy layers, why not opt for a figure-flattering look that will accentuate your
Basic leggings are the perfect starting point for going colour crazy with your pick of ladies gym
tops - like the gym-ready racerback vest, the fun 2-in-1 or the old faithful V-neck tee.
Yoga in a tennis skirt, anyone? How about cycling in baggy track pants? The key to comfort starts
with keeping your look activity appropriate. Keep in mind the moves you'll be doing the most, and
make this your starting point for loading up your shopping basket.
The best bet for beginners: comfy cropped leggings and a performance top that's designed to
wick away sweat. To be sure after you've bagged your pieces, try out a few signature workout
moves in (or just outside) the changing room.
Sweat Wicking Ability:
Working out and working up a sweat go hand-in-hand, and a sweat-soaked workout is never
ideal. Shop for garments with moisture-wicking attributes that draw sweat away from the skin and
to the outside of the fabric. These are designed to keep you cool in hotter conditions, and keep
you comfy in colder climates.
Our signature moisture management material – Dri-Sport – features in a number of our garments.
Look for synthetic blend fabrics such as polyester, nylon and lycra blends, as well as the Maxed
Elite range of ladies gym tops and bottoms.
It's everywhere: from the waterproof mp3 players used by some swimmers to the impossibly
lightweight running shoes used by marathon athletes. Technology continues to take the sporting
world by storm, and it doesn't stop at workout clothing.
Look out for laser cut holes for improved breathability, moisture management technology that
wicks away sweat, or reflective details that ensure you're more visible during low light training
Just like your day-to-day
wardrobe – getting your active wardrobe on track starts with investing in a few quality basics that
are versatile enough to take you from season to season. Save on gear that can easily be layered
up in the winter months, and dressed down to the bare essentials in the summer months -
especially if you train outdoors.
Start with a moisture-wicking top and bottom as your base layer. Keep warm with a long sleeve
running tee and complete your cold-climate look with a rain and windproof nylon shell. And as the
days get warmer – dress it all down to the basics again.
So before you shop that look because it looks hot on the hanger, or you love the colour - think
twice about how it feels, fits your body and fits into your active lifestyle. You've got the tools, now
all that's left to do is rock that champion gear.
