Fashion tips: Dress right before hitting the gym

New Delhi: Always have the right pair of shoes, fresh socks and make sure you go for clothes with sweat-resistant material before you hit the gym, says an expert.

Swati Deogire, Myntra Fashion Stylist, has shared important tips on things to keep in mind before hitting the gym:

* Shoes: Come prepared with a pair of basic running shoes that are suited for a simple workout session at the gym. They will ensure that your feet are protected and that you stay fit as well as stay injury-free.

* Hoodie: Whether you’re a newbie or a fitness maniac, no workout gear is complete without a comfortable hoodie. Invest in a sweatshirt and wear it for your workout every now and then as it will help you sweat more and lose those extra kilos faster.

* Sweat resistant t-shirts: You do need a couple of training t-shirts before hitting the gym. But make sure you go for those with sweat-resistant material to avoid looking like you just took part in a wet T-shirt contest.

* Fitness tracker: The best way to stay up to date with your health is by strapping on a fitness tracker. Wear one to the gym to keep tabs on your heart rate, calories burned and what not!

* Fresh socks: Stock your wardrobe with at least seven sets of cotton socks to keep you going throughout the week. They help in absorbing excess moisture, resisting odour and also prevent blisters.

* Opt for shorts: We often overlook the simplest things in life and the same treatment is meted out to our good ‘ole gym shorts. Go for ultra-light mesh shorts for added comfort. Like the T-shirts you’ve invested in, ensure these too are sweat-resistant.
