The gym outfit edit

the gym outfit edit whathannahwrote dumbbells

As I mentioned in my “20 goals for 2020” post, one of my targets for this year was to start going to the gym. I’m proud to say that I’ve now joined one, but obviously the hard part is still to come – that is, to actually attend, and keep on attending.

In an attempt to motivate myself, I’ve been spending time looking out for cute gym clothing and accessories. I mean, if I have to go, I might as well feel good when I go!?

So, if you’re like me and you’re looking for a little… self-bribe, shall we say, check out a few of the items I’m loving right now!

    I’m a strong believer of ‘if you look the part, you feel the part’ in regards to gym going. Brightly coloured and flattering gym wear makes all the difference to have you feel and perform in the gym! Good luck for your fitness journey!

    I love the colour of the gym shark leggings, I’m starting back at the gym this week and have to recommend the Tala gym wear. It’s such good quality and sustainable too!

  • Nancy

    I love all of these gym outfits! I found fashion being a great motivator for me, after comfort. Most of my clothes are from Nike, UA, CheriFit, and Lululemon. Thanks for sharing these options!

    Loving the outfits here! I always want to buy cute new gym outfits so that it keeps me motivated to workout, but I’m always hesitant to spend on more (old worn out clothes work fine as well). I guess one new outfit per yr wouldn’t hurt the budget ha!

  • emilyfswalker

    Love these clothes! Going to treat myself to some new gym wear in the January sales!
    I was gym reluctant when I started last year, my best piece of advice is to get an induction because I was terrified of using the equipment in fear of looking daft, but love the weight machines now after been shown how to use them x

    • whathannahwrote

      That’s my big worry about it all! I used to go and just use the treadmills because that was the only thing I knew how to work, but I want to do way more core stuff this time and I’ve got the fear haha! It’s so silly when you think about it, but that sounds like a really helpful idea for me at least so thank you! X

      • emilyfswalker

        I was exactly the same and totally get it, I assumed everyone would laugh at me or judge me for being the idiot who couldnt use a machine haha! No problem, I actually had a Personal Trainer for a while which was really helpful but expensive, so having an induction, or even just asking staff there to show you stuff is a much cheaper and just as good option 🙂 x

  • Raheela James

    Definitely love the GymShark clothes. I spend my day in yoga pants and workout clothes so will check those out for sure. Great list of cute gym clothes

  • I’m not going to lie, I have a pretty serious addiction to leggings lol! I can’t get enough of them and pretty much live in them at every chance possible

  • Kim

    These are some great picks! I really love the Next leggings, there not somewhere I’d usually think of for gym wear.

  • Ya

    These are so cute! I love when I have cute workout outfits, it makes me actually want to go to the gym !

  • glowsteady

    I run a lot and forever think I need more workout outfits. I love the look of those Next leggings and I would have never thought to look for gym outfits there either. Really like the Nike zip up too x


    • whathannahwrote

      It was actually my mum who first told me to try checking out Next, I wouldn’t have thought of it either! I’ve ended up finding quite a few nice items there the last few years now x

  • macarley

    Adorable and yes a new outfit can’t hurt! Happy New Year.

    Yes dressing the part always helps to motivate me! Plus you feel so much more confident in purpose built gym kit. Love these suggestions xxx

  • nortoncharity

    Those gym clothes are all so cute! I totally agree with you, I am more motivated to go if I have on a cute work out outfit!

  • Lucy

    I absolutely love buying new gym outfits! It does make me feel more motivated to exercise and go to the gym! x

    That hoodie and the laser tights drew my eyes, though I am not sure I would ever work up the courage to wear them!
    2020 is my year of building confidence, though, so maybe I will just dive right in. 🙂

  • Paulina Stelmach

    So happy for you! I also want to start going to the gym and I feel like 2020 is the year for it. I love the blue leggings and the cropped hoodie set !! They’re so beautiful 😍

  • How cute are these outfits?!?! I love the crop top hoodie. I’m trying to spend more time at the gym this year as well…I feel I need to get a little fitter before I can wear cute outfits like these 🙂 Best of luck on your 2020 gym goals!

  • Chloe O'Keeffe

    I have never tried gymshark but I really want to invest in a pair of their leggings this year, they are sooo fab

  • Aaliyah

    I love getting gym clothes more than I actually like going to the gym! All of these bits are so cute! I really like the gymshark laser cut leggings, that colour is so pretty! Great list x
