5 Ways To Look And Feel Better At The Gym
It's okay to want to look cute while you workout.
In a perfect world, nobody would ever worry about how they look in the gym. After all, the main reason you're there is to improve how you look and feel when you're like, not in the gym, right?
Still, if you're feeling self-conscious before you've even come within a ten-mile radius of a treadmill, know that you are definitely not alone.

Luckily we've got you covered with five tips that are bound to have you looking and feeling your absolute best while you workout...
Book an induction or PT session
Nothing looks better than confidence, which is why it's a good idea to book a free induction or even a personal training session.
Knowing you've got the perfect squat and spot-on step machine technique will not only have you looking like a true gym hero, but should also ease the anxiety levels just a touch.
Invest in some killer workout clothes
One way to feel better about your gym experience is to invest in some comfortable and practical clothes that you can lunge your heart out in, you know, so your leggings don't end up round your ankles.
Moisture-wicking fabrics are a great idea as they allow sweat to evaporate quickly and, for obvious reasons, it's best to avoid anything that goes see-through when stretched.
Take a mate
Venturing to the gym alone can be a pretty daunting experience, so taking a pal will allow you both to focus on pushing each other rather than worrying about whether Trisha on the treadmill is giving you judgmental stares.
Plus the moral support is always nice.
Invest in gym-friendly makeup
Going make-up free is preferable as it's always nice to let your skin breathe when sweating, but understandably that's not something that everyone feels comfortable doing.
Luckily there's a ton of makeup that will safely see you through your sesh without causing major breakouts. The Eyeko Yoga Waterproof Mascara is great for avoiding cardio-induced panda eyes, or if you're looking to cover all bases the entire CliniqueFit makeup range is a godsend.
Block out the haters with headphones
So your gym buddy bailed to eat pizza in front of Friends re-runs, but are you going to let that keep you from your kickass workout? Hell no.
It's easier to forget about your insecurities when you're equipped with the playlist of dreams. 'Cause nothing looks better than bossing the cross-trainer to 'don't cha wish your girlfriend was hot like me?' Believe us, we've done it.
