When you or I go out for a run anywhere in your local city or town whether it be along the beach, at the park, or a school campus, the idea of what to wear tends to resonate first in our mind. Having said that, fitness clothing can stimulate our minds a positive feeling or energy that leads a person to go out and give it his or her all. However, when choosing your fitness clothes, there are some thoughts we’d like to share for your consideration.
Work out clothing are more than apparel that prevents us from exposing our nakedness and keeping us warm. Specific clothing brands can also serve the purpose of expressing our inner self when wearing them. They can raise our self-esteem and will us to perform with confidence. At times one may feel more masculine, feminine, bold, regal, or distinguished.
When a person feels energized, the clothing brand they wear can be the reason why it impacts their performance. During a workout, our bodies become heated. We become dehydrated from pushing ourselves to the point of exhaustion. Our pores open and the perspiration that exits our body serves as an internal air conditioner to keep us cool. Seldom do we pay attention to the progress we’re making because the mind is so occupied with elevating our performance and reaching a specific goal. The brand we wear tends to motivate and inspire us to perform at a higher level and possibly for longer periods of time.
It is a known fact that basic colors are psychologically symbolic. For example, when wearing an apparel that’s red, we learn it represents energy, power, passion, aggression, or love. Blue represents royalty, reliability, order, strength, or security. Black represents sophistication, power, mystery, formality. White represents purity, cleanliness, freshness, or hope. Green represents life, growth, money, and nature. Pink represents romance, love, sensitivity, femininity and beauty. In a nutshell, the color of our workout clothing colors reflects our emotions. The next time you go into your local gym, take a look around and observe what you see.
In today’s market, there are numerous brands out there that advertise positive messages and superlatives that catches a person’s attention. Some are very unique, colorful and strong with their message. Others are quiet and not so loud. The person wearing the eye-catching garment serves the purpose of letting the world know about their group or movement to spark conversation. Other brands want to stimulate thought about our climate, so they wear apparel that’s earth friendly. Very rare will one see a brand that sends a message of negativity. If so, wouldn’t that also be spark for a conversation? That’s something to think about. In short, most people understand the power of positive thinking and wearing gear that has a universal message that inspires a message of moving towards self-improvement or rebounding from a setback. Indirectly, that is why they enjoy wearing it. It represents where they are in their life emotionally, mentally, physically or spiritually.
At the end of the day, it matters what you wear at the gym, park, on a school campus or anywhere in public. Finding apparel that makes you feel good is important. Equally important is your comfort and cost. Take time to invest wisely when spending your hard-earned money and be proud of your decision.
