It’s not all about how things look you know, it’s about how colour makes you feel on the inside…
Behavioural experts have been researching how colours can affect our moods and personality in all aspects of life, including how colour can affect our workouts. There is a psychological connection to almost every colour and you may even notice that certain areas of your gym coordinate with the psychological references associated with certain colours.
Red is an awesome choice for your work out gear in if you have a particularly strenuous routine planned as it is said to exude passion and power. Blue is the best colour for boosting productivity when you’re struggling to get the motivation you need – particularly for those 6am mid-January workouts. As for pastel colours they are associated with calming and mindfulness, pastels are popular shades used for yoga rooms and rest zones due to their tranquil effect.
There you have it, the hottest new gym wear trend since changing room selfies and the biggest trend of 2018 so far, although we’re sure there are many more to come.
