1. The Clothes
Having good workout clothes is necessary to make your workout more enjoyable. Having light-weight, flexible, and airy clothes allow you to workout to the best of your abilities. It is also important to think about the color of the clothes. I am more motivated to workout if the clothes are colorful and bright!
2. The Shoes
Make sure your workout shoes are supportive. I have had workout shoes that have lacked in helping me reach my fitness goals. They were uncomfortable, and not really meant for the type of activity I do. I recently bought a new pair of workout shoes and I see a big difference. I am able to workout longer, and have the needed support for my feet. Again, go for something colorful!
3. The Equipment
If you decide to join a gym, most, if not all, of the equipment you’ll need is already provided. I, however, workout from home. The main items I use are: weights, a yoga mat, and a fitness ball. These workout items allow you the ability to do various exercises that work nearly all areas you wish to change. I also use YouTube to my advantage. There are a lot of workout videos for any type of exercise you could imagine!
4. The Snacks
Whether you have a snack before or after your workout (for me it depends what time of the day I workout), you want to make sure it is filling and nutritious. I like to have something such as a smoothie, assorted nuts, or a nutrition bar. These options provide protein and energy, and of course they are delicious!
