It just so happens that the only strictly-female gym in my area closed down. Typical, right?!
Just as I was getting into a consistent pattern with my workouts and overall healthier lifestyle..
Anywho, it's back to outdoor walks / runs for me, but this begs the question – what do I wear?
Exercising in public as a Muslim woman means finding an outfit that is modest but still practical and lightweight. After scouring the internet (and asking trusted friends around me), I've pieced together a list of the best modest gym wear companies for you to check out:
