How to Choose the Best Clothes For Exercise

Running is not the same as riding a bicycle, as the same is not to do yoga which take an aerobics class.

There are many exercises that allow you to stay in shape, but to make a greater profit, or simply to feel better, it is recommended to use the most suitable clothes to perform each type of physical activity.

It is not going out to buy all kinds of t-shirts and pants, even more if you consider the high price that tends to have the sportswear brand. But once you have chosen sport that wants to practice it is important to know what type of garment is the best to do this exercise.

Functionality, comfort and durability are three of the aspects to be taken into account, in addition to the appearance, although there are other factors that influence the decision.

Custom

Baggy pants are ideal for biking, while clothing with little flexibility would limit your movements in yoga and pilates classes.

“For customers, it is important to know what exercise will make”, said BBC World Dhyana van der Pols, head of textile innovation and production of the World Federation of the industry of sport products (WFSGI, for its acronym in English).

Currently, there are many trends, one of which is that the sport is having a fusion with fashion which can be seen in fabrics, colours and fibresDhyana van der Pols

“Currently, there are many trends, one of which is that the sport is having a fusion with fashion which can be seen in fabrics, colours and fibres”, explained.

Once considered the activities will be performed and with which frequency is important to determine the extent that most adapts to the texture of your body, as there are clothes that despite being a smaller size are flexible enough to meet the function you need.

“What manufacturers are concentrating now is in pants that are compressed, ultra lightweight materials, i.e., in tissues that help you improve performance and achieve your goals,” said specialist.

Appearance

Van der Pols noted that it is important not to confuse comfort with vanity, since it could be detrimental to the exercise; Although it is also true that the appearance also plays an important role for the motivation of people.

“An example is what happens in Colombia, where women like to have a good figure, with breasts and back nice and correct proportions,” said the leader of the WFSGI.

“What happens there is that clothing is important, so it has been incorporated a technology of checker’s figure in the sports bra.” said JANESPORTSBRAS.

“Then you are with high compression fabrics in clothing that has integrated the functionality of the form. People realized that before women had to use clips to keep the form under the sports bra, which was very uncomfortable. This need was studied and why was satisfied,”he said.

Fibers

There are exercises that make you perspire more than others, while if it is done in a gym or outdoors also makes a difference.

In any case important thing is to make sure that the body remain as dry as possible and with sufficient ventilation to avoid overheating.

“Another trend that is very strong is the training of high-intensity, high temperature, which is carried out mainly doors indoors or in a gym with instructors and personal trainers,” said Van der Pols.

In this sense, it is advisable to avoid the garments of cotton, which could be used in activities of low intensity or slow-moving.

The problem is that cotton is a material that leaves no breathing body, wet with sweat and becomes heavy and uncomfortable.

In this case seek a type of synthetic material that serves to repel sweat, like nylon and polyester, as well as expel moisture from the body through the fabric.

Wool and bamboo t-shirts also allow you to keep your body cool.

In manufacturing technology has also advanced and garments that incorporate fibers such as Coolmax or Supplex help to control the temperature.

“It all started at the request of the professional athletes that increasingly demanded better fabrics,” said Van der Pols.

“Four years ago the trend was humidity control, fast drying, the antibacterial and durability, that was what you were looking for endurance sports. What happened then was that there was a transition from the same requirements for the general market.”

Layers

It is not so relevant for the majority of tropical countries, but it is not if the exercise is practiced outdoors early in the morning or at night.

To counteract the times of cold and heat, it is advisable to play with layers that can be increasing or decreasing as you raise or lower the body temperature during exercise.

The formula is to have a layer basis allowing breathing to the body, but that at the same time keep heat. Then you can opt for a layer lighter and finally with a waterproof protective layer or which serve to cut the wind.

During the warm days, it is important to dress properly to avoid the excessive sweating and keep the body hydrated.

Other factors

“It is also happening to people not only want to look well during exercise, but before and after. People increasingly more doesn’t change when you leave the gym, simply put a windbreaker or a raincoat and continue with your daily routine. That’s why, in the last two to three years there has been a tremendous technological development”.

In this sense Van der Pols referred to devices such as monitors, belts and accessories that will incorporate to the sporty look.

Other elements that may be relevant are the number of pockets – how to carry the keys – and color: clear or reflective shades are the most recommended to exercise outdoors at night.

Footwear should also be selected carefully, taking into account the role that is going to give and the type of foot.
