Many people will hit the gyms, walking trails and yoga studios this month, searching for an exercise routine that sticks and helps them keep their New Year’s resolution to get fit. Before signing up for that Pilates class, head to the store and invest in some quality workout clothing. It’s not as simple as selecting the right colors, although our Fashion section gives you some colorful ideas! The right exercise clothes also perform a function. Purchase shoes designed for the type of activity you’ll be doing. Stick with cotton or cotton-blend socks to minimize sweaty feet. Breathable fabric is also important when choosing tops and bottoms. And don’t forget accessories – hats keep your head warm and headbands keep the sweat out of your eyes. Check out the slideshow above for some of our favorite finds around Lake Norman.
