The Perfect Fit For Fitness
The Gentlemen’s Curb is a lifestyle blog where fashion meets fitness in a BIG way. Here are some more tips for #menofsize in that are doing their best to become healthy. (We will never be small in our lives, so we have to live our best lives.)Going to the gym or jogging around the block is simple if you are slim and sleek. As a big and tall man, it can be much trickier. Working out means having the right clothes for the job or else you will be uncomfortable and exercise less. Unfortunately, big guys don’t have the same choices as everyone else because, well, no one caters to giants! Still, exercise is an essential part of keeping healthy, so you have to find a solution. The good news, fellas, is that there are four quick fixes underneath. All you have to do is have a read and keep the following in mind.
Stretch Over Tailored
Everyone wants to look their best while they exercise. Sure, it isn’t a fashion show but you are on display so it’s nice to dress to impress. The problem is that fitted clothes aren’t brilliant for big people. Because they are tight, it can feel as if you are about to bust out of the seams. As a rule, stretchy yoga tops and pants are much better for gym-goers and athletes because they are flexible. Or, you can wear loose-fitted tops and pants and so that you have extra room to breathe.
Big men know the average store doesn’t have clothes which fit, so there’s no point wasting time. Yes, it would be awesome if Nike started to take the plight of big and tall people seriously, but that has yet to happen. Therefore, it’s quicker and cheaper to shop at the places that you know will be able to help. Kohl’s and JCPenney are two excellent places to start, as is Amazon and eBay. There are companies such as Large Lad and Bad Rhino also have some great athletic wear. For specialist equipment, Champion has a wide range of athletic apparel to choose from while Under Armor has a great variety of items. The worm is slowing turning, guys.
Are you a gym junkie? If the answer is yes, it can make getting dressed far easier. Gyms are inside, which means they are warm and balmy. The temperature outside may be below freezing, but that doesn’t matter when you have shelter. Therefore, there’s no need to wear sweatpants which are too tight. Instead, opt for shorts that have an element of give and allow you to work out unobstructed. The same goes for t-shirts. Rather than a long-sleeved underlayer, try a vest. Anyone who exercises outside will freeze to death, but gym members will be perfectly relaxed.
Try Before You Buy
Lots of manufacturers say they offer big and tall menswear but bend the truth. When you wear it for the first time, it feels as if it was made for guys who are smaller than average. Okay, you can take it back, but it’s a hassle and doesn’t help the situation. The only thing you can do is to test drive it before heading to the checkout. Simply slipping on gym clothes is a perfect way to make sure they fit and are comfy. You should always do this before you buy from a new store or supplier.
