Office to Elliptical
We know choosing workout attire that is both comfortable and appropriate at a corporate gym can be a bit tricky. And when your gym is within your office building, baggy sweats and suffocating spandex are not an option.
“A loose pair of yoga pants should do the trick,” says Denise Austin, workout guru and author of Denise's Daily Dozen. She suggests pieces that are primarily black and slightly loose. “What’s most important though, besides a good sports bra, is choosing the right fabric – preferably a lycra-cotton blend. They keep the moisture away and prevent clothes from clinging to your body.”
