Plan Your Gear

Ready, Set, Exercise!

Be smart when choosing the right workout clothing.  Think comfortable and make sure your clothes don’t chafe, ride up or slide down.

Always choose the right shoe for the type of exercising.  For weight training and low impact activities consider a crosstraining shoe, running or walking shoes.  If you are going to be running, you’ll want a running shoe so your feet will have plenty of support.  If you are participating in a sport, you’ll want a a sport specific shoe so you don’t hurt yourself.  Don’t forget to choose the right thickness of sock so you don’t get blisters.

Choose the right clothing for your activity.  If you are running or walking, a simple pair of shorts and tee shirt made of special wicking material such as CoolMax will keep you cool and dry in the summer and warm in the winter.  If you are doing yoga, you might choose more fitted clothing so you can move freely.

Specialty stores can help you choose all the right footwear and apparel.
