When you go to the gym dressed it gives your body a boost. Clothing doesn’t always have to be the motivation but it is a good tool. Choosing a gym outfit can give you the extra boost you need to finish your workout. What you wear affects your performance directly.

Back in July Puma decided to collaborate with ASOS to produce activewear for plus size men and women. The size range from 1x-5x for women and 1x-6x for men. The options for plus size activewear are getting so better! Now we can all have a little Puma in our closet. Check out some of the new releases from the past month!

When people start working out they usually have a set amount of weight they wanna lose. Most people don’t know weight loss should not be the only goal. Sometimes when you start a workout regimen you can get discouraged by results. Deciding to start a healthy journey the results will never be instant but they will be consistent. If nothing else always go dressed for the part!

Another one of our favorite plus size activewear brands is Rainbeau Curve. This San Francisco based brand has had activewear before it was a trend. They are on of the first companies to see the need for plus size activewear. Check out some of our favorite looks from this year.

Weight Loss: PSA

New year …. New YOU ?!? Trying to lose the same 20 pounds from last year? No,no maybe you're still waiting for your partner to get on board. Weight loss seems impossible when your plus Size right ? Like I always state not matter how comfortable you are with your body nobodies goal is to stay BIG/PLUS SIZE! Check out these quick tips to start your new year weight lose off right!

  1. DO WHATEVER WORKOUT YOU WANT! Don’t skip a certain workout because you think you don’t have the body type for it. Find your comfort zone and do the workout at YOUR pace.

  2. DON'T DOUBT YOUR STRENGTH! Your BMI can help determine a lot. But that’s not all gauge your progress by how YOU feel. When you start feeling the workout is too easy, GO HARDER!

  3. TECHNIQUE IS EVERYTHING! Proper form is always important. Not knowing how to do a exercise properly could increase your risk of injury. Whatever you choose to do, do it at your own pace and comfortability.

  4. MAKE NON-SCALE GOALS! We tend to measure our progress by the scale. The scale is not always accurate. Muscle weighs more than fat. It could be that time of month. Focus on how your feeling, how much your energy has changed. Celebrate your confidence and your consistency with your workouts. Victories don’t have to be based on the SCALE!

  5. DRESS THE PART ! Last but not least dress the part. If you are a fashionista like myself make sure you incorporate that in you weight loss journey. So many brands have extended to plus size. Nike and puma now both have plus Size workout clothing. Don’t go to the gym looking a mess and lose motivation! KEEP IT CUTE! Dressing the part will keep you motivated.
