Best Gym Gear for Girls & Guys

Gym class is a regular part of everyone’s school routine so why not inject a bit of fun and style into your gym bag? With just a few basic t-shirts and some bright pops of color, it’s easy to brighten up your locker with some fun and comfortable gym gear that’ll make playing organized school sports something to look forward to every week. To prepare yourself for rainy weather and the times where you have to play sports or run outside, make sure you get yourself a comfortable hoodie! You can either go for cozy fleece or something more streamlined with a bit of elastic in the fabric so you don’t heat up as quickly. One of the most important things in your gym bag should be your athletic shoes. Make sure you get a pair that are appropriate for cross-training - you’ll be doing a lot of varied fitness activities in gym class and you want a pair of shoes that will support your feet and body in the right way. Ask the salesperson at the store to help you find the perfect shoes that will both support your foot and be suitable for your gym class - the right shoes will make a big difference!


Girls Gym Gear

For girls, a good sports bra is essential - ideally you should get a sports bra that is made of a moisture-wicking fabric, which means that it helps to keep the sweat away from your skin and allows more ventilation. You can also get a tank top with a built-in sports bra which gets rid of one step in the change room! Cropped workout pants are a good alternative to shorts if you feel self-conscious in them - they’ll also keep you much cooler than full length gym pants and can be worn all seasons. If you want to keep hair out of your face while playing sports, get a sporty headband in a bright color to keep your hair out of your face. It looks good and is practical too! Running shorts are much easier to run in if you’re into track and field - the short length and lightweight fabric help cool you down too. It’s a good idea to get a separate gym bag for your gear to keep yourself organized and to remind yourself to throw it all in the wash every weekend!

Guys’ Gym Gear

For guys, it’s important to get gym clothes in lightweight fabrics so it can cool you down while you sweat in gym class. Avoid wearing fleece lined sweatpants for indoor sports - you’ll overheat much faster and get tired as as result. Basketball shorts, a t-shirt and a zip-up hoodie will take you from running outside in the rain to playing a game inside the school gymnasium. If you want to spruce up your gym gear without wearing anything too loud or bright on your clothing - get some funky athletic shoes or high tops with a cool design or detail. An added bonus is that you could wear them outside of gym class too! Keep your gym gear in a separate bag to keep everything clean and separated. It’s a good idea to also throw the gym bag into the wash as well to keep it all smelling and looking fresh!

I got this shirt and it has open shoulders. I really like it, but kinda want to cover it a bit. Like sew lace or bows where it's open. But I'm not sure if it'll look good or not. Any suggestions?
