Stop wearing baggy workout clothes! YES! I’m talking to you.
Let me ask you a question. When you wake up in the morning and feel bloated, big, fill in the blank, do you go towards the figure fitting clothes or the baggy option?
I go for the baggy option. And I think that is A-OKAY, EXCEPT when you are working out.
When you are running, dancing, spinning etc. the more exposed the better!
I don’t care if you are 5, 10, 20 or more pounds overweight, if you want to faster results, take off all those clothes.
This is so counterintuitive, I know, but when tighter-fitting exercise clothes, you work harder.
How do I know? It happened to me.
Because I taught for 15 years, I was always wearing “exercise clothes,” but it wasn’t until this winter when I went to class in what I would call my so-so clothes, I needed to do laundry) instead of my go to outfits, that I realized I didn’t have my workout mojo. I was standing there going through the motions wondering what my deal was, and then I looked in the mirror and it hit me. My clothes! When I wear my favorite Demi Lovato for Fabletics or Lululemon outfit, I am soaring.
If I don’t feel fabulous in my outfit, I don’t get a fabulous workout.
What you wear impacts intensity level in your workout.
Don’t believe me?
Try it! Go and get a super cute outfit that is made for the type of workout you are doing. Don’t wait to lose the lbs. Do it now. Do your workout and experience the difference.
According to Harper’s Bazaar, ‘Clothing can be empowering in everyday life, and when it comes to working out, contributing to our confidence levels and raising self-esteem. Indeed, there’s even a psychological phenomenon called “enclothed cognition” which suggests that the clothing a person wears can trigger mental changes that positively affect their performance and confidence level. In the simplest terms, when you look good, you feel more confident, so investing in gym kit which makes you feel the part can help you to feel better in the gym and truly conquer a workout.”
Every little bit helps…and caring about what you wear is a little thing that can go a long way!
