We all know that it is not necessary to put your full make-up or try extra hard to put your hair in the perfect ponytail in order to have a killer workout. However, picking out clothing for the gym that you are excited to put on can affect your mood and even push you harder in the gym. Putting on bright colors right before my workout re-energizes me and helps me get pumped. I love that in the gym my workout clothes can be as “loud” as I want them to be. I can wear colors and styles that I cannot wear at work or out on the town.
There are days when I am running low on clean clothes and I am forced to wear a super bland outfit I’m not crazy about. When I have those days I am less motivated, less confident and less likely to do that extra rep or run that extra mile. Weightlifting and wearing bright/fun workout clothes make me so happy and up for a challenge. If you are one to normally wear a lot of blacks and greys, I urge you to start adding bright colored pieces to your workout wardrobe. I started using this app called “Stylebook” to plan out my outfits using my actual clothing. I used Stylebook to create the outfit below. I will probably write about Stylebook in a future blog post because I love it so much!
