Caption: The best fitness clothes to invest in ahead of gyms opening again
With gyms and fitness classes set to open again very soon, now could be the perfect time to spruce up your workout wardrobe.
It’s all very well wearing your moth-eaten sports bra and pyjama bottoms to do Joe Wicks in your living room – but you probably want something a little bit nicer when you start working out in public again.
It could also help you with your motivation. Getting back into a regular fitness routine might be tricky after months of lockdown, but giving yourself the opportunity to show off your shiny new kit could get you out of bed.
So, whether you’re looking for high-impact gear, something for the yoga class, or new kit for evening runs now the weather is improving – we’ve got you covered.
Form and functionality is just as important as stylish design with these must-have pieces of activewear.
Shorts or leggings, sports bras or long-sleeve tops – these are some of the best items to invest in before gyms open up again.
