The Health Issue: What to wear to the gym

"Why is it so hard for women to get to the gym?" -Anonymous Guy Friend Asks

     This is something guys do NOT understand about women. How many of you have heard your girlfriends, sisters, cousins, mothers, women in your life say:

1.) " I am just not ready to go to the gym yet. I want to lose five pounds first."

2.) "I feel like every time I go to the gym my thighs grow bigger. I am trying to slim down not bulk up."

3.) "I just am so tired at the end of the work day. If I had more time, then I would go."

    Truth, I have at various points in my life said all of these things, and more! And, I know I am not the only one, so as I was getting ready this morning for the gym I thought about how I could inspire other women, who are body conscious to also go to the gym today, and be successful in their efforts to exercise.

    The first problem women face when going to the gym is what to wear. Men, don't have this problem. They throw on one of their multiple beer logo, or phish concert tee-shirts, snatch up a pair of basketball shorts (which they wear on the daily anyway), and they're out the door. Women on the other hand like to look somewhat put together. I am not saying we all wear matching suits, but we do wear complimenting colors. We also want to wear something that is comfortable for working out. We don't want to wear underwear that gives a wedgie, leaves panty lines, or causes us to sweat. We don't want bras that dig into our skin, or yoga pants that show off our muffin tops. What I am saying is, if you're attending the gym because you are feeling a bit more voluptuous than usual, you also want an outfit that conceals the problems you are trying to rectify.
