wearing the right activewear

Working out comes very easy to some people, while others struggle to take the first step.

Whether you are just getting started in pursuing an outdoor adventure, or you have been training for quite some time, the clothing you choose to wear can improve your workout.

Below are a few ways that the right activewear can get you where you want to be physically.

It works with your body

It’s important that you purchase activewear that works with your bodies natural movements. You want to be able to enjoy your full range of motion and get the most out of your endeavour.  

When you are fighting with your clothes every step of the way, it’s easy to get frustrated, and eventually give up. One example of the right active shirt is the Plateau T. It offers breathability through the underarm mesh panels, as well as a flatlock seaming design so you can reduce chafing.

It wicks away moisture

If you aren’t sweating during your training sessions, then you might have bigger problems than your clothes! Whether you get your physical activity by running on a treadmill in an air-conditioned room, or playing soccer with mates in extreme heat, you’ll need active wear that can wick away the moisture you perspire. This way your clothes won’t dampen and stick to you uncomfortably.

It builds confidence

When you are wearing clothes that look great, you feel great! In turn, you give a better performance and are more likely to workout longer if you feel comfortable in what you wear.

Confidence and mental strength are two of the most important elements of successfully achieving your physical goals. While you might think that you have to be physically strong to get started, this isn’t the case. It starts with believing that you can accomplish anything you put your mind too. You do this, and you’ll be ahead of the game!

It lasts 

While it may seem expensive to buy high quality active wear when you are just starting out, in the long run it will save you money. High performance clothing will last much longer, and you won’t have to buy as many pieces of it (unless you want to!) The durability and strength will be able to withstand the different weather patterns that your training requires.

It can easily be layered

When choosing active wear it’s important to note that each piece should act as a protective layer for your body.

The first layer, which is normally a t-shirt, should act in keeping you cool and dry. The second layer, such as a fleece, will also keep you dry, but should be able to keep your body’s natural heat in so you stay warm as well. The third layer, your shell, should be a lightweight jacket that is water and wind resistant.
