Men's gym attire

Men’s fashion has had a meteoric rise in recent years, and this has crossed over into men’s fitness attire.

Many fitness brands have opened clothing sections, with some brands even being completely dedicated to this sector.

So is men’s gym fashion different from standard fashion? We reveal all below.

 

The Rules Of Men’s Gym Attire

 

Know your gym

Not every gym or location is the same. You could probably get away with shades on in an LA gym, but wear shades in a North London gym and you’ll probably get some dangerous looks from bald 6ft 4 savages.

There are some gyms that are very open and community feeling, then there are others where it’s 99% men and everyone’s focused on nothing but pure strength and size.

Stick to basic gym clothing on your first visit, see what others are wearing and then opt for that.

 

Is It Gym Appropriate?

Many people forget that they’re going to the gym to workout, sweat and get results. Seeing a guy who’s put more time into his outfit that his routine is a sad sight and somewhat embarrassing.

This is usually the guy doing nothing but looking at himself in the mirror, or looking at every girl who walks by.

You could be wearing the greatest gym attire money can buy with hoods, skinny joggers and more zips than a leather jacket, but if you can’t move and it’s uncomfortable then what’s the point?

As my old trainer used to say, “we’re training muscles not egos.”

Make sure you can move around and get the workout done without any complications. If you’re sacrificing fashion for fitness, you’ve probably misunderstood the meaning of working out.

 

Fitted Or Lose?

This depends on your body shape. If you’re not happy or confident with your current frame, and you’re just starting your journey, then loose fitting clothing is probably a good idea for obvious reasons. You don’t want to be wearing a skin tight shirt if everything doesn’t quite look contained.

However if you do have an impressive frame, and you’re a bit of a gym veteran, then why not display this to others? At the end of the day, why else do we go to the gym outside of health purposes? We all want to look good and we want people around us to notice.

 

Colors

The best colors to wear at the gym are those that don’t show sweat stains.

Everyone should sweat at the gym, it’s not something that surprises us when we see it, but it’s still pretty unsightly.

In order to avoid this, opt for darker colors like black, navy, dark red. If you decide to wear white, light blue or grey, then everyone’s going to see those underarm and back stains more clearly.

It may be a statement as to how hard you’ve worked, and in a male dominated gym you’ll look like a winner. But in a gym where women reside, darker colors prevent you from looking like a swamp monster.
