New Year, new gym gear from Sweaty Betty
Ready to work off those mince pies? Get motivated with these stylish workout clothes from Sweaty Betty.
Ready to get back to the gym and work off your Christmas indulgences? Having the right gear is often the first hurdle and/or excuse.
Being comfortable during your workout is so important. See-through leggings whilst squatting, no thanks. Feeling confident, comfortable and ready to smash your goals with minimal distractions is what to look for when shopping for new gym gear.
A recent article from Shape discusses "enclothed cognition," which refers to a sort of mental shift you experience when you wear certain clothes. It means if you wear a funky pattern, like these Contour leggings, you might, in turn, feel more "fun" and confident in yourself.
"When you put on new fitness gear, you begin to get into character like an actor putting on a costume for a performance, as a result, you expect to have a better performance, making you more mentally prepared for the task."
Dr. Jonathan Fader, sports psychologist for the New York Mets.
So, it turns out buying new workout gear isn't a frivolous act of self-indulgence, it really does add to your performance.
