A Brief Guide To Gymshark Athletic Apparel: Here Is What I Suggest

If you haven't heard of it, let me introduce you to Gymshark. Gymshark is a UK-based athletic apparel company that has taken over the fitness world. In recent years, the company has expanded greatly, and people all over the world are purchasing their amazing products. With items ranging from $20 to roughly $60, I feel like Gymshark remains around the median in terms of affordable workout wear. Lululemon was always the popular athletic apparel brand for me, but I never wanted to pay $98 for a single pair of leggings. While paying $50 for a pair of leggings isn't exactly cheap either, it seemed way more affordable. Additionally, you really get what you pay for in terms of quality and long-lasting wear.

Because Gymshark offers a wide range of apparel, honestly it can be very overwhelming for first-time buyers to decide what items are best for them. While the website makes it easy to find all of their products, it can still be hard to tell what you should buy. Here is a little guide on what to consider buying based on what kind of apparel you're looking for.

If you like high-waisted...

Personally, I think high waisted in the only way to wear leggings, but that's just what I think If you agree, that's great. While there are some low-rise leggings and pants options, Gymshark really produces mostly high waisted items. Because of this, there's so much variety! My personal favorite lines of high waisted shorts are the Vital Seamless and Energy Seamless collections. I own a couple of pairs from each, so believe me when I say that you will not be disappointed. Leggings from these collections not only provide a sleek high waisted look, but the material is so comfortable. I wear my leggings not only to the gym but everywhere else I may go in a day.

If you like comfort...

One thing that I really love about good leggings is that they feel comfortable to wear. I wear leggings ALL the time, not just to the gym, so I really need my leggings to feel good when I'm wearing them. In terms of comfort, again I suggest the Energy Seamless collection. The material on these items is soft and stretchy, including holes in the sides for more air circulation. I find these leggings to be very breathable as well as just cozy.

Another one of my favorite collection is the regular Flex collection. The Flex leggings are the staple Gymshark leggings, so they also happened to be my first pair. The Flex leggings having a low- to mid-rise style which is not my favorite, but they are still oh-so-cute and comfortable. The material is not as tight and elastic as typical leggings, but they are still great for workouts.

Lastly, the Slounge collection is one of Gymshark's best collections. Slounge is not as much an exercise collection as it is a loungewear collection, based on the name. The slounge pants I own are basically fitted sweatpants/joggers that offer a sleek but comfortable look. I promise you that the slounge collection will not disappoint.

If you like crop tops...

Personally, I don't buy as many gym tops as I do leggings, but cute tees and tanks are still essential to a nice fitness wardrobe. Also, with high waisted leggings like I usually wear, crop tops are the way to go. In terms of long sleeve tops for the winter, I reach for the Vital Seamless collection. This collection offers incredible tops in four beautiful colors to match all of the Gymshark leggings you own! The material is thin so you don't overheat in the gym, but not too thin that you'll sweat right through it. The same goes for my go-to short sleeve crop tops. For this, I usually choose my Dreamy top. The material for these items are a bit different: not as stretchy but so so soft and totally sweat-proof.

If you like bright colors...

If you're like me and brightly colored clothing piques your interest, well then you're in luck. Perhaps my favorite things about Gymshark apparel is the huge range of colors. This company is different from most in the sense that not all of the clothes are black and grey with a single mesh panel on the legs. So many of Gymshark's collections offer bright, popping colors, allowing you to stand out in the best way at the gym! So in terms of recommendations, I say ALL of the collections. There are so many colors you have to try!

While Gymshark is less than some other popular athletic apparel brands, it still certainly is not cheap. But quality is important, so their incredible clothing is worth every penny in my opinion. So go ahead! Treat yourself to a pair of Gymshark leggings and a matching crop top.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
