Plus Size Looks for the Gym

Plus Size Looks for the Gym

Going to the gym can be a scary experience for anyone. You may feel as if you are being judged for how you look, what you wear and how you choose to work out.

Plus sized people may feel especially sensitive at the gym. If they are already feeling a lack of confidence about their body type, they will feel like all eyes are on them when they step out on the treadmill. This can be a major setback to people who are dealing with body issues.

The good news is, we have a line of leggings that is especially made for plus sized people. The fit these leggings provide is meant to give support where it's needed and make exercisers feel sexier and more comfortable in their own skin.

Read on to find out how you can incorporate these leggings into looks that will make you feel great about yourself.


#1. Inspirational T-Shirts

Camo leggings and a motivational tee will let everyone know you are ready for battle.


A t-shirt with a motivational message is a great way to let everyone know exactly why you’re at the gym. They will know that you are working on self-improvement and there is no need to feel as if you need to explain yourself to anyone.

An inspirational t-shirt will also help keep you motivated to reach your fitness goals.


#2. Jackets and Long Sleeves

These abstract psychedelic leggings provide a fashion forward look. Add a long sleeved jersey and hoodie for warmth and complete the outfit with red sneakers for a splash of color.


If you feel more confident with a covered-up look, long sleeves and hoodies can be the way to go. They are also great for keeping your muscles warm in cold weather. They will help you look forward to the day when you are ready to bare it all.


#3. Sports Bra

If you feel confident about the upper half of your body, you might just decide to strip out of the baby blue hoodie to reveal the fun pink sports bra underneath. The colorful look of the leggings and light pink sneakers will make the look even more interesting.


Some plus size women feel the need to cover up, but overly layered looks can result in a sloppy appearance that adds bulk. If you feel confident about the top of your body, a sports bra can be a great complement to your leggings or you can even wear one with yoga shorts in cooler temperatures.


#4. Leggings

Bring out the color in these tie dye leggings with a magenta tee and sneakers and an orange gym bag.


The reason Fierce Pulse leggings are recommended for plus size women is they have a high rise waistband that provides maximum support and won’t fall down. They are also made of a quality polyester spandex blend that is airy and comfortable. Pair them with your favorite pieces for a look that makes you feel confident.


Have the Right Attitude

  • In addition to wearing the right clothes, it’s also about having the right attitude when going to the gym. Here are a few pointers.
  • Everyone sweats. Don’t be too sensitive about those beads forming in uncomfortable places. It means you’re making progress.
  • Don’t be concerned that everyone is watching you. It's likely people are focusing way more on themselves than they are on you.
  • If you want to take a selfie every so often, go ahead and do it, and remember, this journey is about you, not what others think of you.

Hopefully this article has given you motivation to be your best and look great while doing it. Good luck moving forward with your fitness goals.
