Attire matters.

Apart from doing exercises correctly, experts also say that wearing the right kind of attire is vital for a good workout as it ensures comfort and helps you move easily.

Wear the right clothing

If you are exercising outdoors, especially in hot weather it is better to wear light couloured, sweat-wicking clothing. This will help you feel cool. In case of cold weather use a base layer that absorbs perspiration away under your warm layers. Avoid clothing which is made of rubber based materials as they prevent perspiration from evaporating. Also, different sports have specialized attire, for example cyclists wear padded shorts. Find out if there is any clothing that is ideally suited for your fitness or sports  needs.

Use the right kind of attire and shoes for sports and fitness activities.

Wear the right shoes

Uncomfortable shoes that are either too tight or too loose can be quite a nuisance. They not only hamper your progress while training but could also cause injuries. Just like with clothes, sports specific shoes are designed. For instance basketball high top shoes are made to provide ample ankle support. Spend enough time when choosing shoes, check if there is enough space for your toes and that they will fit well with whatever material socks you wear.
