Islam does not restrict women from exercising — in fact all Muslims are urged to take care of their bodies through healthy eating and exercise — but women face a special set of challenges in a culture of co-ed gyms and skimpy workout wear.
Inspired by @withloveleena recent article on what she wears for her workout, I thought this could inspire you too and help you sort out what to wear for your own gym classes.
Get yourself a high neck sporty top to keep your neck covered if you ever decide to go with a turban look to allow your body to breathe, for trousers, there’s a lot of wide leg sporty pants which don’t show your curves or your shape, they also help your legs to breathe.
If you want to wear your hijab as usual you can try jersey hijabs they are so practical for the gym as their material helps absorb the sweat.
If you’re lucky enough to find an “Only Women Sport Club” then don’t deprive yourself from wearing all the trendy sporty outfit to enjoy looking to your body progress all around the club mirrors 😀 In this case, you may want to try out some of the womens gym wear from Ryderwear!
