There’s definitely a right way and a wrong way to dress for the gym. Sure, you’re there to get your sweat on but that doesn’t mean you should just wear a ratty old t-shirt and some sweats. Plus, you want to find functional items and fabrics that will wick moisture and provide performance benefits. For this video Ashley was joined by our friend and fitness guru, Steve Cook, to discuss how you should dress for the gym.
Look for technical fabrics with performance benefits. There are many better options than an old cotton t-shirt and those heavy sweats can catch on things and restrict movement.
Watch Your Fit
Yes, there is such thing as too tight and nobody wants to see everything, so find a balance with your fit. Sleeveless is ok, but don’t be the guy in the tiny tank top showing excessive nipple. If you are going to be wearing base layers or tights, we recommend laying shorts and shirts over them.
Stick With Simple Colors
Keep it basic, stick to foundational colors like black, navy, grey, white. A pop of color or pattern is definitely welcome, so don’t be afraid to have some fun with your gym style. You also don’t need to feel the need to match everything from head to toe, have some variance in what you’re wearing.
As we’ve discussed before, keep your logos minimal and try not to mix different brand logos, especially if they’re large and noticeable.
Have Gym Wardrobe
It can be tempting to just wear your old t-shirts and shorts to the gym. But just because you’re working out and getting sweaty doesn’t mean you shouldn’t cultivate a well-put-together look. That being said, no need to overthink it. Keep it simple, functional, and easy-to-wear.
