Its imperative that gym workouts or any fitness regime be rejigged often.

We sometime reach a plateau with our bodies and find those last 3 kilos the hardest climb, and this after overpowering those 15 kilos.

Working on different body parts and then combining that with interval training, Zumba or cross-fit might sometimes help break the ceiling. At Contours, we are lucky to have them change workouts every 3 months. A different set of group workputs and boot camps are offered to us every few months, keeping monotony away and motivation high!

Just like fitness regimes, you seem to hit a wall when it comes to what to wear today to the gym. Looking at the options in the gym cabinet and wondering what to combine and what would suit the intensity of the workout today can be frustrating.

So this post suggested by a fellow gym buddy (who went all out and clicked some very cool pictures of her gym outfit), is all about rejigging that gym wardrobe with some cool DIY solutions. Its time to dig into the closet and grab that pair of scissors as you reach out for some creative inspiration!
