Suddenly, you remember you're wearing 'no name' workout clothes. In an instant, your muscles turn to jelly, and you can no longer find the strength to go on. You lay prostrate on the floor cursing yourself for not splurging on the $100 running/yoga pants that could've taken you from mere human to workout god. If only you could go back in time; but, it's too late.
OK, seriously, has that ever happened? I'm going to go out on a limb here and say "hell, no." So tell me then, why do people pay large amounts of money for workout clothes? Are they really worth it? Let's talk it out.
I love clothes as much as the next person, but I've never been able to justify spending more than $25 on an item of clothing I'm only going to sweat buckets in and on, i.e., wear to the gym. Am I missing out on something? Don't get me wrong, I LOVE the way those expensive tank tops and yoga pants/capris look. They're beautiful; and the fabric is definitely top notch. But, all I'm going to do is sweat my butt off (I hope/wish!) in them, and no matter how you slice it a sweaty tank top is a sweaty tank top. I just can't do it. When I'm considering whether I want to take the plunge I always think, do I want these yoga pants or do I want that new skirt at J.Crew? The skirt wins. Every. time.
So unless one of you can convince me a $60 tank top will make me faster, stronger, or skinnier (if I'm paying $60 for it, it better do all 3!) than a $20 tank top, I'm going to say name brand workout clothes: DON'T. At least for me.
I'd love to hear what you think!
