I recently signed up to a gym with the intention to get fit, healthy and combat my constant need to sleep all of the time. In the past i’ve tried exercising from home and never really been dedicated enough to stick to a routine, signing up and actually investing in my fitness is hopefully the push I need. Either that or i’m throwing £20 in the toilet each month!
So going to the gym requires gym acceptable clothing, to which I have the pair of trainers I wore for P.E. in high school 6 years ago and the sports bra I bought this time last year when I decided to get fit then too. I was in dire need some gym wear that was going to push me to step into the gym but not drain my bank account baring in mind this might be just another whim. So I headed over to trusty old Primark.
Currently, Primark has the most exciting range of gym stuff available at the moment. A wall of coral, teals and peachy tops with matching bottoms and socks! Where could I go wrong, even the sound of it sounds like a summery fitness dream!
I picked up two tops, a simple grey cami for £8 and teal crop top £6. Now I know what your thinking, I was a little skeptical of the grey at first too, no one wants sweat patches but the material is quick dry and I’ve had no problems so far. I also picked up and pair of black shorts for £4, I started my gym kick in leggings and my oh my did it get sweaty up on that elliptical, grabbing these shorts were a blessing. I purchased two packs of trainer socks, they come three pairs in one pack for £2, bargain. And finally a small towel for £2.50. All of that for under £25!
If like me you want to give exercising a go but don’t have the appropriate clothing then Primark is definitely your place to go. I’m not going to lie, I have been eyeing up a pair of Nike Pro leggings to go with the Nike Run trainers I have permanently burning a hole in my online shopping basket but I think i’ll give them a miss until I know this isn’t just another phase.
Let me know if you have any great (budget friendly) places to shop for gym attire or have any tips for staying motivated when exercising. I need all the help I can get!
