NFL and MLB pro-athlete Deion Sanders once said, “If you look good, you feel good. If you feel good, you play good.” When my son was younger, my husband would take him shopping for new gear before the start of every sports season. And he’d remind him of this philosophy.
One day, it occurred to me: This saying could also apply to my workouts. Every day, I was dressing in a big, comfy T-shirt, loose shorts and plain-old sneakers. I’d throw my hair up in a pony tail, skip the makeup and head straight to the gym after dropping off the kids at school.
Of course, at the gym, there were always women dressed like me—then there were those wearing “cute,” coordinated outfits. I had a hunch most women secretly wanted to be part of that stylish set.
