Fitness & Activewear Report

Whether you're just getting off the couch or you're an active, life-long sports enthusiasts, one of the ironies of life is the difficulty in finding work-out and active lifestyle clothing in plus-sizes Everyone says you should be doing it, but then finding the clothes to do it in is a challenge.

Fortunately, plus-size fitness apparel is more readily available on-line, even in larger, more extreme super-sizes which fit our Biggest Loser stereotypes of what "all" large bodies look like.  One of the fastest growing segments of the plus apparel market, demand is growing as people become more and more health conscious.

One of the key challenges for many plus-size body types is finding the proper sports bra. More so than many of their thinner counterparts, plus-size women are likely to have D cup or larger busts which can be very painful during exercise if left in regular bra support.  If this is a particular concern for you in a large, hard-to-fit size we highly recommend Enell sports bras which are among the most popular with plus-size women who need extra support and stability during exercise routines. For those on a tighter budget or with less specialty support needs, Champion sports bras are another good choice. This item, along with the proper footwear, is the area in which the most money should be invested in your fitness wardrobe in order to get the best quality and safety benefits.

While yoga, Zumba, swimming, and classic gym work-outs are among the most popular activities, many plus-size women also participate in things like dance, winter sports such as skiing, triathlons, tennis, golf, hiking, biking and any number of activities that have specialty clothing needs.  As more and more girls play team sports we also are beginning to realize that fitness and active lifestyles are less about losing weight and more about staying healthy and enjoying life.

If you are new to exercise and have any health conditions, it is advised to ease into routines and consult your doctor and fitness professional for the best plan for you and your body's safety.
