❗️LEM'ME TOUCH ON SOMETHING REAL QUICK ❗️ As I was doing my deadlifts in the crossfit room today, a girl I knew walked in. She started practicing her pull ups. Counting her, we were 2 women and 5 men in the room. I saw her getting really sweaty as time passed, but she was keeping her long sleeves top on. . . In the lockers, I saw she had a sport bra underneath. I kindly asked her : "Why did you keep your top on while you were training ? It was so hot in the room !" She hesitated, and answered : "I do not feel comfortable anymore since a guy told me I wanted to show off my body" . . 😡👿😩😤 EXCUZEEEE ME. I was so pissed off. I almost asked her which guy told her this so I could give him a little pep talk. So guys can train as they want but women would not have the right to work out in a sports bra ? . HELL YES YOU CAN GIRL. Do not let anyone tell you how you should behave. Sports bra have been created FOR this purpose, so please, do not feel ashamed wearing it at the gym, especially when it is so warm. For your health, for you comfort, and even more simply for yourself 👊🏼 ______________________________________ ❗️PARLONS DE QUELQUE CHOSE D'IMPORTANT RAPIDEMENT ❗️ Alors que je faisais mes soulevés de terre dans la salle de Crossfit cet après-midi, une autre fille est entrée. En la comptant, on était 2 femmes pour 5 hommes. Elle commença à travailler ses tractions, et je voyais qu'elle transpirait de plus en plus, mais elle gardait son haut à manches longues sur elle. . Dans les vestiaires, j'ai vu qu'elle avait une brassière de sport en dessous. Je lui ai demandé gentiment : "Pourquoi tu as gardé ton haut quand tu t'entraînais ? Il faisait tellement chaud !" Elle a eu une hésitation, puis a répondu : "Je n'ose plus me mettre en brassière depuis qu'un mec m'a dit que je voulais juste montrer mon corps" . 😡👿😩😤 PARDON !!! AI-JE MAL ENTENDU !! J'ai failli lui demander quel mec lui avait dit ça pour lui toucher deux mots. Alors comme ca les mecs pourraient s'entrainer comme ils veulent et nous on ne pourrait pas se mettre en brassière ? . ET BIEN SI. Les brassières de sport ont été crée à cette fin, donc par pitié ne vous sentez pas honteuses quand

It's not uncommon for women to feel nervous about wearing tight leggings or showing a little skin when working out because they haven't yet reached their weight-loss or fitness goals. But to feel self-conscious because someone might think you're showing off your body, well, screw that!

Louise posted these side-by-side selfies after seeing a fellow woman at the gym getting super sweaty in a long-sleeved shirt. In the locker room, she noticed the woman had a sports bra underneath and asked her, "Why did you keep your top on while you were training? It was so hot in the room!" The woman's response was, "I do not feel comfortable wearing a sport bra at the gym since a guy told me I wanted to show off my body."

Louise questioned that, saying, "So guys can train shirtless but women would not have the right to work out in a sports bra? HELL YES YOU CAN GIRL. Do not let anyone tell you how you should behave."

We completely agree. Wear what makes you feel comfortable, whether it's loose shorts, booty shorts, a tank top, just a sports bra, or a clown suit. Don't worry about what other people think of your gym attire, because you are there to get sh*t done, and what you're wearing really isn't your concern. Be proud of your body, and if you want to show off all your hard work, you should!
