You know what they say – “fail to prepare, prepare to fail”. With that in mind, you’d be surprised by how many people you’ll see taking on challenges wearing workout gear that’s so far from appropriate it’s embarrassing.
Things like training for a marathon in plimsolls, or swimming in an old pair of shorts should obviously be avoided, but for some strange reason they do happen. Depending on what you want to achieve it’s possible buying all the gear you’ll need could prove quite expensive, but clever expenditure on quality products can add a lot to your fitness success.
