How you dress is important – you must have heard this advice a billion times by now. But it is not only when you are at your workplace or going out for a date or a lunch with friends is when you should dress wisely. It is equally important everywhere, including what you were to the gym. Be it some light running and stretching or full blown workout, you need to do them in the right attire.
Jogger pants are a quintessential part of men’s gym wear collection; and thanks to the recent, more flexible approach to men’s fashion, they have become a part of everyday clothing as well. If you are thinking of updating your wardrobe with some new cool gym wear, here is why you need to invest in a couple of good joggers.
They are soft and comfortable to work out in
Joggers are made of extremely comfortable materials, woven intricately to make the fabric all soft and feathery on skin. They are usually of 80% thick cotton and 20% polyester for the basic ones. Thus they are the best options to do the running and stretching and all other workout activities. For outdoor wear, there are others fabrics that you can pick – fleece, wool, or even corduroy is a popular choice. What is comfortable in the gym will anyway be an easy wear outside.
They trap the heat and keep the body warm
When you work out, you need the body to warm up and start melting the fats. For that, you want to trap the heat generated by the heavy working out to make it effective and joggers do exactly that, but at the same time lets the body breathe. They help keep the heat inside and warm up your body – it helps you work out better as well as get the right results.
They absorb sweat
There is a reason joggers are also called sweatpants sometimes, and that is because they absorb sweat while you are literally sweating it out. Even though they are meant to keep your body warm, you will start sweating at some point – otherwise your workout is kind of pointless. The materials with which joggers are made helps absorb the moisture keeping the skin clean and dry and comfortable for you to continue your session.
They are as stylish as they come
The world has moved on from broad fit, baggy track bottoms to the more stylish, slim fit joggers that we see nowadays in men’s fashion. They are designed and made keeping in mind that even gym wear is not outside the realm of fashionable clothing. Men’s fashion individualists started to make the joggers tapered with elastic near the ankles to give them a more tailored look that sits well and does not look sloppy. As a result, joggers now make gym wear look as classy and fashionable as any other apparel meant for outside.
They make you feel good and workout better
When you look good, you feel good – another much said and heard line in the world of fashion. So when you wear that stylish jogger pants to gym and you see yourself looking good in the floor to ceiling mirror even while sweating it out, you automatically feel good about yourself. It might sound a lot like something totally superficial and pointless, but it actually helps you get the motivation and pumps you up for a much better workout session than you had planned.
Joggers have joined the mainstream men’s fashion as well, much to a lot of people’s surprise who only saw it as a gym wear earlier. But sooner or later the world catches up to any fashion trend and now they are equally preferred on the treadmill as well as in the pub.
