Swati Deogire, Myntra Fashion Stylist, has shared important tips on things to keep in mind before hitting the gym:

Shoes: Come prepared with a pair of basic running shoes that are suited for a simple workout session at the gym. They will ensure that your feet are protected and that you stay fit as well as stay injury-free.

Fitness tracker: The best way to stay up to date with your health is by strapping on a fitness tracker. Wear one to the gym to keep tabs on your heart rate, calories burned and what not!

Fresh socks: Stock your wardrobe with at least seven sets of cotton socks to keep you going throughout the week. They help in absorbing excess moisture, resisting odour and also prevent blisters.

Hoodie: Whether you’re a newbie or a fitness maniac, no workout gear is complete without a comfortable hoodie. Invest in a sweatshirt and wear it for your workout every now and then as it will help you sweat more and lose those extra kilos faster.

Opt for shorts: We often overlook the simplest things in life and the same treatment is meted out to our good ‘ole gym shorts. Go for ultra-light mesh shorts for added comfort. Like the T-shirts you’ve invested in, ensure these too are sweat-resistant.
