When you are getting ready to go to the gym, how do you pick out what to wear? Do you grab what is at the front of your closet or the same old pajamas every day? While your attire at the gym may not seem important, it can actually have a large impact on how productive your workout will be. Your workout clothes should work as hard as you do. But, if you regularly find yourself tugging at your clothes or feeling distracted while exercising, then there is some problem that you need to resolve soon. It is true that your gym clothes should look good and stylish, as that is also a part of what motivates you to keep exercising. But it is more important that it should feel good and comfortable. Unfortunately, buying good quality workout clothes at affordable prices is difficult. To combat this, various home grown and international brands have introduced new ranges of workout clothes which are stylish yet comfortable and priced competitively.

Wearing the right type of clothing while working out has many perks, as mentioned below: –

It enhances your performance: ‘Dress for success’ is an oft-repeated mantra and it applies quite well to what you wear while working out. High quality and intelligent fabrics work well with the body to expedite performance, with standing the rigour of intense training to keep you performing at your best. Opt for fitness clothing that is designed for your type of workout but never forget to put comfort first. You can definitely check out the Adidas Dri –fit collection, which incorporates high quality fabrics, getting you one step closer to a toned body.

Keeps you free from odor causing bacteria: Cheap quality workout clothes often cause itching and rashes arising from the bacteria in the sweat you produce. You should opt for light, breathable and sweat-wicking fabrics which will draw moisture away from the body, leaving you feeling dry and comfortable. Workout clothes with intelligent fabric helps regulate and maintain your body temperature to ensure you perform at your best and in ultimate comfort. To combat the odor caused during workout, our very own home grown brand SEVEN by MS Dhoni recently launched the Irresistible Andes Tee. These tees are 100% breathable, skin-friendly and have been anti-microbially treated for odor control, meaning there is nothing to be worried about. So, happy times at the gym.

Gives you the freedom to work hard: Clothes that don’t fit properly, whether too tight or too baggy, can hinder your movement and the efficiency of your exercise routine. If you are constantly pulling and tugging at your clothes, you won’t be nearly as productive. Wearing the right fit is as important as the fabric of your workout apparel.

Adds feel good factor and keeps you motivated: It is true that your gym clothes should look good and stylish, as they also play a part in motivating you. Wearing your pajamas or the oldest clothes lying at the back of your closet isn’t going to cut it in terms of improving motivation. Use this as an opportunity to buy a new exercise outfit. You can check out the new collection – HRX by Hrithik Roshan – which is super cool and stylish and available in vibrant colors.

Keeps you posture accurate: The first and foremost thing you are told while working out is to keep the exercise posture correct, otherwise, all your sweat will be a huge waste. Make sure you buy clothes and specially footwear which contribute to your exercise and take you a step closer to the perfect physique. Your shoes play a vital role in keeping your posture correct during the workout. Buy a pair of shoes from SEVEN by MS Dhoni’s prive collection.
