Does buying trendy, new gym clothes really help you exercise? Or do you just LOOK like a gym rat while you ride the couch and binge-watch Netflix all day?
Researchers polled 2,000 people who hit the gym regularly, and the overwhelming response was . . . YES, those expensive clothes CAN actually help. 79% said wearing "cool" workout clothes really does make them work out harder. If you're just trying to get to the gym more often though, ANY workout clothes can help. 88% of people said just the act of putting on gym clothes is a huge motivator. In other words, once you put your gym clothes on, you'll probably work out. Your chances of skipping it at that point are pretty low.
Here are the top five things people said motivate them to KEEP going to the gym . . .
1. Seeing results.
2. Putting on their gym clothes.
3. Drinking a lot of water during the day.
4. Having a workout buddy.
5. Eating healthy.
And if you haven't seen this SNL bit about leggings, it's funny as hell!
