What Should I Wear To Bootcamp Outdoor Fitness Classes?
Starting something new can be a little nerve-racking, especially when it’s joining a new fitness group. There’s a lot to think about, and it can sometimes get slightly overwhelming with all the questions going round in your head! Am I fit enough? What is the group like? Will they like me? Am I too old/young? What if I’m not in good enough shape? What do I wear?! Most of these are just usual apprehensions, but you will realise you have nothing to fear once you have done your first session.
So What Should I wear?
To help alleviate some of these worries, here are some ideas of what to wear to your Bootcamp session! It can be tricky for you if you are a newcomer because you’ve not been before, so you may not want to stand out from the crowd. So here are some tips on what to wear in all weather conditions!
On Normal Dry Warmish Day
On a regular day, you would just wear what you’d wear to the gym! Easy! Gym leggings/gym shorts, a sports bra, sports vest top/t-shirt, and a good pair of trainers. This is the basic attire; however, because we are an outdoor fitness company, the good old British weather can disrupt this suggestion slightly.
What To Wear On A Winters Day
So, on a typical British winters day, I’d suggest wearing the above but adding layers! Pop on a long-sleeved, light sports top over your vest top/t-shirt and a hoodie over that. You will find after the warmup, you can then start to remove some layers. Some prefer to train in shorts, and that’s completely ok. But maybe pop some jogging bottoms over your shorts, or perhaps some cycling shorts under, just so you don’t get too cold. If you choose to wear gym leggings, maybe opt for the longer length ones on the colder days!
What To Wear On A Rainy Day
So, now is the time to address the elephant in the room. Rain! Yes, it can be off-putting, but trust me when I say that once you’re out in the rain, it’s actually a lot of fun! Just make sure you bring a light waterproof jacket! You can always take it off, but it’s helpful to keep you dry and warm initially! Also, you may wish to bring a large black bin bag to place over your car seats for the drive home.
What To Wear On Really Cold Days
When the temperature really drops it’s a good idea to bring some gloves. If you have a pair of sports gloves with a slight grip on them, they’d be perfect! Trying to lift metal bars and swing kettlebells can be very tricky when your hands are cold.
A hat is an excellent option because, again, you can take it off once you’ve warmed up, but it’ll keep you warm in the meantime.
So, in the summer, you can wear almost any style of running trainer if they are comfortable and fit you adequately. Remember that it will turn muddy and slippery in the winter, so trail trainers will be a perfect option to help with grip.
And there you have it, the perfect Bootcamp UK attire! Now you can get booking your sessions, making sure that you are dressed for the correct weather conditions! But remember, always bring water!
