What you choose to wear when training will significantly enhance or affect your commitment and performance. You want to be at your very best, holding focus and retaining energy where possible.

A worst-case scenario for any guy would be to feel uncomfortable and self-conscious – after all, at the gym it’s a hall full off mirrors so you want to do yourself a favour.

With brand collaborations flying here, there and everywhere in the current fashion climate; looking stylish isn’t something difficult to achieve nowadays. And just because you’ll be sweating doesn’t mean you shouldn’t take charge of your look and what you opt to wear.

The best advice would be ‘go with your gut’ – if it looks and feels silly when your in the changing rooms chances are if you wear those shorts in the gym you won’t be feeling relaxed and ready.

So you’ve essentially got your workout attire sorted and your sneakers in check; but what about all your bits and bobs that come with a workout – where do those go?

If you’re a well-prepared and organised guy you’ll know not to forget your towel, shower and daily hair products. These all belong somewhere, ideally in a stylish gym bag.

Any style of bag these days can be of use to hold these items but if you’re switched on you would know to choose something easy to carry, lightweight and that can’t resist a machine wash. Gone are the days of carrying home sweaty kit in your most favourite leather satchel – which you failed to pre-empt on your morning rush.
