My Workout Gear

Updated: April 2020

One of the few things I shopped for regularly was workout clothes. And even now in isolation what I am investing in is workout clothes. More for motivation than need though. Being stuck at home I have started working out 7 days a week so workout clothes are still getting the most wear out of everything in my closet. Other than requests to shoot and share my workouts, the most requested post has been for workout gear. I take a daily post-workout selfie on Insta-Stories (for personal accountability and motivation).

Below are some of my go to pieces for workout gear:



Sports Bra
Sports bra is probably the most important piece of clothing while working out. If your girls aren't secured, you ain't gonna get a good workout. My work outs vary from high intensity, to mid intensity, to rigorous dance routine to yoga and stretching. Hence, I have invested in different kinds of sports bras for different activities. One of my recent favorites is this & this. I have tried several brands in the past years and the fit for different styles varies so it is always a matter of trial and error but all the below styles are either something I have in my closet or in my shopping cart right now. Some of the other styles for low impact, that I love are this and this.


Tops
Previously I used to wear a lot of tanks but over the last couple of years I have transitioned into breathable non-body hugging cotton muscle tees. I like a wide arm hole (like this) and a fabric which is light in weight and does not have static in winters and does not stick to me in summers. It is truly a personal choice. However, while doing yoga or similar classes which I might be doing down dog and other postures, I might go for a more fitted top just for functionality (like this).


Bottoms
The fundamental is same as the tops - breathable fabric - but of course the bottoms are usually more fitted. I have a hard time finding something which is cute and comfortable at the same time. A lot of time I stick with darker colors and simpler prints just so I can easily mix and match my tops. I do like to be coordinated in my workout gear. In the past Athleta and Nike have been my go to brands for bottoms, I have also shopped at adidas & Under Armor but getting the right fit and fabric with them has been a struggle for me lately. I am trying new brands in the coming weeks and I will keep you posted about the results.

Shoes
Last but not the least - shoooess! While I have stopped splurging on shoes (heels, and such) in general I do purchase a pair of sneakers every few month. Again, to emphasis I workout 7 (previously 5) days a week and I like/try to be color-coordinated in my look and shoes make a big difference. [I know, that's a poor excuse for my indulgence, so sue me! :D] Most of my workout sneakers are from Nike. They fit me well, come in many colors, are light weight and have not let me down ever.


So there you have it. These are my go to brands for workout gear. I hope you found the post helpful. If I missed something or you have any other specific question, feel free to as in the comments below.
