Heed these tips on what to wear when working out

The gym is a great place to get rid of some stress and tone those muscles, but beware: there have been many fashion don’ts spotted at Lied Recreation Center. Make sure you’re not one of them by following a few quick tips.

Do wear bright sports bras. It’s okay to let them peek out of your tank.

Don’t ever wear denim or clogs to the gym. Think function over form.

Do pull your hair back. You can find tons of stylish and functional headbands and elastics at Target or Walmart.

Don’t show up at the gym at 7 a.m. with full make-up. It will all run off and clog your pores, and everyone will know you put it on just for the gym.

Do exercise caution when wearing cutoffs. They are comfortable and affordable alternatives to expensive work-out gear, but make sure they still qualify as shirts. If the piece of clothing is simply a cotton sling thrown over a sports bra, consider something a little less revealing.

Don’t worry too much about how you look. After all, you go to the gym to be healthy and feel good, so enjoy that workout! Just don’t wear denim!
