Contrary to popular belief, wearing sweat-inducing clothing doesn't actually help you lose weight any faster. Sure you'll sweat more, but any weight you lose is lost in your body's hydration levels and if you've already read the page on water bottles you know how our bodies react to that. Instead, opt for clothing that'll boost your motivation instead of your risk of heat stroke.

Attention guys! You know those too-tiny cotton shorts you wore to high school gym class? Well, toss them in the trash! And ladies we know it's hard enough to get the motivation to work out let alone after you've poured yourself into a Lycra-excuse for exercise pants. The gym, or even your home gym, is no place to potentially blind innocent passers-by. It's about time you got some serious fitness apparel.

My advice to those who truly want to get fit is to start substituting food rewards with fitness wear rewards. For instance, if you lose 5 pounds of body weight treat yourself by buying a sleek sports bra for the gym in your favorite color. I understand that fitness wear is expensive, but the lightness felt in your wallet will leave your hips lighter, too. Check out some of the latest innovations in athletic attire from popular brand names like Fila, Puma, Champion, Rockport, Nike and Adidas.

When it comes to fitness wear, light, airy and loose-fitting is where it's at. You're already aware that if you're too hot or cold your desire to work out dissipates faster than you can say double-dip! So avoid sticky plastic-coated warm-up suits, stifling sweat suits and torturous sports bras.

Contrary to popular belief, wearing sweat-inducing clothing doesn't actually help you lose weight any faster. Sure you'll sweat more, but any weight you lose is lost in your body's hydration levels and if you've already read the page on water bottles you know how our bodies react to that. Instead, opt for clothing that'll boost your motivation instead of your risk of heat stroke.

If you're not willing to commit to new fitness clothing yet, then layer. After all, it's better to remove a layer if you get too warm than to be freezing and running home to your warm bed. But if you do choose to splurge on a new pair of yoga pants instead of a chocolate croissant, what material should you choose?

Cotton Blends are old faithful when it comes to exercise wear. The first choice in exercise wear is soft on your skin and absorbable; while offering plenty of breathability. A shirt made from a cotton/polyester blend will maintain its shape and still dry faster than 100% cotton.

Nylon is known as the 70s porn star of fitness wear for its tremendous luster and virility. You'll recognize any fitness garment made from nylon by its bright, shiny appearance. So unless you want to be the next winner of Galaxy Fitness, stick with matte finishes.
