As a woman, finding the right Tights & track pants to wear to the gym can be a balancing act.
On one hand, you want to be comfortable as you use the treadmill or lift weights
but, on the other hand, you also don’t want to draw negative attention to yourself by dressing provocatively.
Finding the Tights & track pants to suit your comfort level, personal style and the gym’s dress code might require a few attempts, but once you’ve found what works, you can get in shape without worrying about what you’re wearing.
In general, women can wear T-shirts, tank tops, long-sleeved shirts and sweatshirts during their gym workout. It’s wise, however, to check your gym’s dress code to ensure what shirts are appropriate. In general, gyms permit tank tops but frown on halter tops and shirts that show excessive cleavage. As with all your gym clothing, ensure your tops are made of light, stretchy fabric that keeps you cool and doesn’t limit your mobility. Synthetic fabric typically provides a lighter, more comfortable feel than cotton.
Different workouts call for different outfits, so consider the activity you’re doing and the weather conditions, if you’re working out outdoors. If you’re taking an easy hatha yoga class, loose cotton clothing might feel refreshing, while a serious hike requires sweat-wicking clothing to avoid overheating. As well, you might require technical gear with reflective stripes or patches for cycling or running workouts, especially if you work out at dusk or dawn. And, of course, any outdoor workout requires wearing sunscreen to protect your skin.
