Never been to a yoga class before? We hear you 🙋 It can be daunting trying out a new class but getting the outfit sorted is half the battle, right? Yoga focuses on breathing and flexibility so wearing a stretchy or loose-fit top is a good place to start. This Nike Yoga Dri-FIT top gives you room to move AND it has Nike’s sweat-wicking tech built in. On the bottom, keep it straightforward with neutral gym leggings, like these plus-sized ones from South Beach. (Psst! Check out our plus-size workout clothes and our Curve collection for more beauts like these 😍)

Pilates is all about targeted exercises. Your instructor needs to keep an eye on your posture, so slim-fit kit is better for this one. Why not get coordinated with a matching set from ASOS 4505? But don’t be fooled – this isn’t your ordinary gym-wear set. Underneath its highly wearable exterior is a double-layer design with breathable mesh inserts to keep you supported and your sweat hidden. If going matchy-matchy isn’t your thing, pick up a Puma Studio crop top with its dryCELL moisture-wicking material. It’ll help keep you comfy and feeling confident even if you're just a beginner 💪

 

WHAT TO WEAR FOR WEIGHT TRAINING

Specialist gear is a must for a long weight-lifting sesh in the gym. To make that barbell a little easier to lift, we recommend Nike's specially designed trainers, which work just as well supporting heavy lifting as they do pumping up agility drills on the turf. We’re talking soft foam cushioning, a wider base at the heel and breathable mesh to give you full support when performing both static and dynamic exercises. Pair them with some shorts from Under Armour, complete with fast-drying fabric, a compression fit and super-light HeatGear material. Work them on their own or underneath some baggier shorts if you like more coverage.

Go on, smash your PB wearing this incred sports bra-and-workout-top duo 💥 Since weight training is considered a low-impact activity, we’ve picked out a mid-support sports bra from adidas for its moisture-absorbing AEROREADY tech. Obvs this cross-strap design is stuh-ning, too. Complete the look with a Reebok Training tee with breathable mesh inserts to help keep you free and breezy.

Comfort is 👑 so we love this pair of Nike oversized joggers that give you space to MOVE! They can only be improved by a cute crop top to show off all of your fierce choreo. But if you’d rather go baggy on top though, we recommend a lightweight sweatshirt from ASOS 4505 that won’t make you sweat any more than you need to.

Scared about your first gym sesh? 😅 We’ll walk (or run) you through it. First: your earphones. If they ain’t wireless, we ain’t interested, so ditch your old tangled pair and check out these Sudio Tio earphones that boast nine hours of playtime and hang safely around your neck. Second: your gym bag. Don't make it to the gym without a duffle bag from adidas. Perfect for chucking all your stuff in, it has handy external pockets for easy-to-reach gym bits (like those earphones) 😊

Whatever you’re doing in the gym, make hydration a priority. You need to replenish the water you lose through sweat, so why not do it in style? 🤠 This water bottle from Corkcicle has an insulated steel base to keep your water cooler for longer and a shatterproof lid – we love to see it. And for those of you still wary of using shared equipment, how about some resistance bands? This set from South Beach is perfect for those workout-from-home days.

Hit the ground running (literally) with gear that gets you moving. First things first, sports bras. A high-impact sports bra is a *must*. Not only will it help keep everything in place, but you can say ‘see ya!’ to rubbing and discomfort. We love the Puma Running high-impact bra for its super-soft ellaVATE fabric, topped off with dryCELL sweat-wicking tech. And for days when the weather won’t play ball, it’s gotta be an ASOS 4505 lightweight jacket – no excuses here, people 🌧️

Yep, a good pair of trainers can really take your runs to the next level. These kicks from Nike are specifically designed for feet that sit further forward, which ICYDK is most common in women. Lightweight and breathable, it’s the techy sole with squishy foam that helps absorb all of that pavement-pounding impact. But if your cup of motivation is still running low, check out these 2-in-1 shorts from Under Armour which will help you avoid any ride-up *eye roll* (IYKYK) 🙄
