Men's Fashion Tips - What To Wear To The Gym

Posted: Jan 26 2017

What to wear to the gym


In our previous posts, we've provided you with all the information you need to create and stick to a workout routine, as well as which foods to eat to reach your fitness goals this year. Now that you've got the knowledge, we're here to provide you with some tips on what to wear to the gym. 


What Shoes to Wear to the Gym

With the current sneaker trend at its peak, sneakers can be worn with most outfits as a fashion statement. So, if your job permits it, get a pair of sneakers that is versatile enough for a work out, but stylish enough for you to carry on for the rest of the day.

Pro Tip: keep an extra pair of socks handy to switch into after your work out to prevent your sneakers from soaking up all the post workout sweat, and to refresh your feet!

Nobody likes sweaty damp underwear. So to help you get a workout in before work/school or before dinner/drinks, lined shorts mean you can go sans underwear during your workout. When the question is what to wear to the gym, this quick tip will help save on bag space + keeps you comfortable during and after your workout. 


Transition Seamlessly From Work to the Gym

Want to slot in a workout after work/school? Use your workout tee or tank top as your undershirt layer. Since you won't be working out until you’re gone from the office, job, or class, you can free up some bag room by using this little trick. Make sure that your workout shirt has wicking or quick dry properties to keep you from feeling excessively hot or clammy throughout the day.

Track your Progress

Gone are the days of clunky toy-like fitness tracking devices. Now, it's much easier to mask your fitness tracking device as a sophisticated watch. Track your progress, time your workouts, and keep track of your diet on these wrist friendly trackers. Then, after your workout, pop on a leather strap or metal band to transition seamlessly into work or class!



Layer it up

For the colder months, or if you're going for a run outside, compression tights keep your muscles supported and warm. But, why not save your bag some room and wear them under your slacks/jeans. They'll add an extra layer of warmth and you'll change into your workout clothes that much faster!

Look Sharp All The Time

We're not saying you shouldn't be comfortable to and from your workout, but you don't have to compromise style for comfort. On days that you're not coming from school/work, french terry sweatshirts and sweatpants are great for warming up and post-workout, but with the right fit and right style, they can look just as sharp as your regular outfits. 

Too warm out for sweats? Try some thinner nylon fabrics instead!

Final Words:


  • Smooth transitioning. If you've got a busy work schedule and want to save time, consider wearing your workout t-shirt as an under-layer.
  • Layer it up. During the colder months, consider wearing gym friendly compression tights.
  • Stay cozy. Consider wearing a comfortable sweatshirt and sweatpants on days that don't require you to head to the gym from work.
