Get a well-fitting sports bra. It can make or break your workout. Go to a store where you can be well measured for a sports bra and try on a variety of bra styles before you choose the one that's right for you and your particular fitness needs. Try out the bra by moving around in it, jumping up and down and bend over to ensure that it stays in place.

Fitted top:

 Modern gyms call for better-fitting tops. In certain types of gyms, such as a yoga studio, tighter clothes are required, since it gives instructors a better idea of your posture and form. Choose clothes made from performance materials that wick away sweat to help keep you fresh and dry.


Choose your bottoms based on the type of exercise you'll be doing once you're at the gym. There are a variety of gym bottoms to choose from, including shorts for cycling classes, cropped leggings for yoga and stretched pants for Pilates and general exercise. The adjustable waistline is important for a personalised fit.

Choose the right shoe for your activities. Running shoes aren't suited for aerobics classes and cross trainers usually aren't suitable for running. Consider the shape of your foot also. For extra support you may require padding in the arches, depending on how high or low your foot arch is. Go to a sports shop and get help from the attendants.

Box braids: this is like regular cornrows, but these are bigger than regular ones hence the name.

The Bun: This tight and sleek look will keep your hair out of your face while you're working out, and is sweat-friendly.

Gym Make-Up

You can put on makeup to the gym to look attractive and presentable. If you must wear makeup, choose sheer, light foundation so you don't clog your pores. If you're exercising outdoors, use a tinted sunscreen instead of foundation. Use waterproof mascara and then a nice lip balm or lip gloss. Less is more.
