Of course not, I didn't really mind, sportswear a fundamental importance from the aesthetic point of view: just be trendy. Often one does not think of convenience and practicality of clothing suitable to the exercises to be carried out, as, rather, to be “trend”. Nothing could be more wrong because the garments worn in the gym must first of all be comfortable and allow freedom of movement. it is advisable to get rid of the bulky clothes. So let's see in detail http://calibreapparel.com/Women/Activewears what are the right clothes to wear when you practice sports.

I love workout clothes.

I know I can do this, and I know we can all do this as long as we are willing to try.

They totally make a difference. When I got back to the gym I was wearing sort of baggy clothes and when I hit a normal BMI I bought leggings, and exercise tops. Made all the difference. First off, I looked much better and thinner so that was motivating. Second, it make me feel like a "real" exerciser. And Third, they are more comfortable.

Persistence is more important than perfection.

Don't assume your freedoms are assured.

If you're not outraged, you're not paying attention.

I much prefer to have workout specific clothes, and find I'm a fan of Fabletics as I find the quality and price about right.

Does it change my motivation or my training? No, I doubt it has any effect in that way, but it does make working out a lot more comfortable to have clothing made for it that doesn't do weird things as I workout.

I don't have a preference when it comes to workout clothes and have never thought much about it. I've tried compression gear, but didn't notice a difference in my training so I stopped. I'm picky about the shoes I wear though!

For me, proper fitting clothes help me focus on my workout, which can indirectly help improve it. if my yoga pants are falling down i'm going to be constantly pulling them up and distracted throughout my workout. i've bought more expensive workout pants and cheaper ones, and for me the additional cost hasn't been worth it. i prefer to replace my workout clothes more frequently than my work clothes, so i'd rather spend less and replace more often!

Healthy choices and actions have positive impacts, even if the scale doesn't move!

I really prefer to wear cotton fabrics for comfort. Unfortunately, workout clothes are rarely substantially cotton, but I do have a few pieces.

The tight workout clothes do not feel comfortable on me. I'm tall, the pants are usually too short, the cropped pants slide down my abdomen too much, the arms of the long sleeves are usually elbow length on me.

But when I was married to a wealthy man and living in a mansion and going to local pilates classes, I had to dress to impress.

I buy good quality runners on sale always for 1/2 price, sometimes at winners, I have a few tops for workout that are designed for not sweating in them, I sometimes where T-shirts, I have workout pants, everything I buy on sale for 1/2 price or less. I do not buy expensive brand names. Most times you can tell by looking & feeling & reading labels if it is a quality item that will last.

I have pleurisy, 3 types of anemia from Iron,folic acid,other vitamins not working,chronic pneumonia, pleurisy, chronic kidney disease, a partially collapsed lung, low blood pressure & blood clots in both lungs for 3 years..I am 55 years old. I had cervical cancer 6 years ago, no signs last 4 years as well.I am on P.S.T. time zone.

I like working out in cute outfits, but well fitting shoes and bras are really what make a big difference.

I prefer to have specific workout clothes that I use, and yes, I generally get those from "workout" sections of clothing stores or from places like REI, etc.

Some clothing is designed to help wick moisture away from your body, for example.

I don't necessarily go for those tech kind of clothes, but I can tell you I'd much rather do yoga in nice, stretchy yoga pants than in a pair of jeans. ;) Most workout clothing is designed to allow you maximum range of motion and help keep you cool.

Last, I prefer to have dedicated workout clothing because I get all sweaty and stinky in it. I don't want to ruin my everyday clothing.

Good quality workout clothes certainly can't hurt. As others have said, they'll provide proper support and sometimes help reduce pain. (Quality shoes are a must!) Personally, I also tend to feel more motivated when I have fun clothes to work out in -- and being happy to work out can't hurt my performance.

No, I don't mind at all! Yes, workout clothes are best if they FIT correctly. They are designed to allow more freedom of movement without binding, chaffing, etc. They also allow for better breathing and mositure expulsion. Sadly so many makers of workout clothes, make them for fashion to keep sales up. Function is the rule for activewear, not fashion, IMO!

Neither really.

I don't think my clothes equal better performance at all. Good quality running shoes professionally fitted for my feet do make a difference to lessen pain but they don't make me faster.

I also have lots of actual workout clothes that I have accumulated. Some pieces I have had for 8 or 9 years and have held up because I care for them properly. I think all of my workout clothes, no matter their age, are in good condition and look nice, which makes me feel better but they don't make me faster or stronger.

Hey guys, do you choose some special workout cloth? Or just buy whatever? :D

Earlier I didn't really mind, but recently I started paying more attention to it.
I have impression that it's improving my routine.

Recently I'am totally on for tights of quality, this one turned out as best tights for gym so far www.ryderwear.com/seamless-tights-charcoal

What is your experience? Do the ' special' workout clothes really improve results or just motivation?
