How the Right Gear Can Help You Feel Ready to Start Running as an Influencer

As an influencer, you might want to take up running to improve your health and encourage your followers to do the same. However, if you plan to run as an influencer, you will seriously need to give thought to the gear you are wearing – which is where this article comes in.

The Power of Proper Footwear

Unsurprisingly, one of the most critical components of your running gear is your footwear. However, you might be surprised just how much different a good pair of running shoes can make to the experience of running, and how good it is for you.

Making the decision to invest in a pair of running shoes might be difficult – particularly if they are expensive – but shoes that are suited to your foot type and gait can prevent discomfort, injuries, and enhance your running experience in a dozen other tiny ways. You'll experience proper cushioning, arch support, and stability with the right shoes, enabling you to focus on the joy of running.

On the other hand, ill-fitting shoes can lead to blisters and even repetitive strain injuries as your shoes do not protect your feet from the impact of running. These could quickly make the running experience unbearably unpleasant, especially for a beginner just starting your running routine. So, to set the best example for your followers, you should prioritize a pair of good running shoes.

Creating the Rest of Your Outfit

Of course, the shoes that you are wearing are just the beginning of your running gear. A vital element of the overall ensemble, to be sure, but the right running shoes are not the only thing you are going to need for the best running experience.

On the contrary, you are going to have to put serious thought into every aspect of your running outfit. Not only because you will want to make sure that you are as comfortable as you can be, but also because you are setting an example for your followers and you'll want to be sure that you are doing a good job of it.

In fact, since your choice of outfit is so important, you might want to create an entire branded running outfit that you could sell as merch to help eager fans jump into the best running gear for them. Of course, services like Anthem Branding could help you to make this idea a reality by helping you to create high-quality merch – which would ensure that you are providing your followers with both quality and purpose in their outfits.

Commitment and Accountability

Of course, if you commit to creating and branding an entire range of exercise attire for yourself and your fans, you might find that it actually serves to help make it easier for you to stick to your running routine.


Well, you have taken on the commitment as part of your business AND as part of your relationship with your followers, which means you are now accountable for continuing your running routine. Otherwise, you might have wasted your business's financial investment and the fans who invested in the gear you provided.

Ultimately, a running routine is an exercise in applied discipline and commitment, so this boost to yours might be helpful in allowing you to keep to your running routine.
