It's no secret that exercise is good for your health. It burns calories and fat while contributing to the formation of new muscle mass in the process. If you plan on exercising, though, you'll need to wear the right apparel.
Studies show that people who exercise on a regular basis have lower rates of heart disease, diabetes, obesity, metabolic syndrome and other harmful diseases than their sedentary counterparts. According to the American Heart Association (AHA), adults should get at least 150 minutes of moderate-intensity exercise a week or 75 minutes of vigorous-intensity exercise. By meeting these recommendations, you'll reduce your risk of many common diseases and illnesses.
But if you want to create an effective fitness regimen, you must wear the right gear.
Traditional 100% cotton clothes are a poor choice because of their ability to absorb moisture. As you sweat, this moisture will be absorbed into your clothes, causing chafing and subsequent injuries.
A more comfortable and better all-around choice of fitness apparel is moisture-wicking fabric like polyester. While cotton absorbs moisture, polyester has the opposite effect by wicking it away from your body. Wearing moisture-wicking fabric such as this will keep you cool and comfortable, making your workout sessions just a little more enjoyable. Of course, polyester is just one of many types of fitness apparel products. There are countless other types of fitness and exercise apparel, as revealed in the following two reports.
