One thing you may not have noticed is that the cardio section of the gym often doesn’t have mirrors where are the lifting area is surrounded by them.
Why? Because no one wants to watch themselves do cardio…it’s bad enough already.
Just kidding, it’s because when lifting weights the number one rule to prevent injury is proper form. Thus, it’s actually important to be looking at yourself.
Whether doing cardio or lifting weights I always feel more motivated in a great outfit. When I look good, I feel good, and I perform better.
I can’t remember the last time I wore an ill fitting cotton tee and baggy sweatpants to the gym. Now I’m not saying women should dress in all spandex and men should wear tight muscle tees.
What I am saying is wear something that makes you feel good. That’s all.
For me that includes some Lululemon or Nike apparel. I like to wear tighter clothes because I don’t always like my clothes moving up or down if I start jumping or doing pushups/crunches. I’ve really become quite picky honestly.
Do you dress for success at the gym?
