Looking good at the gym: top five tips

The number one concern when joining a gym or picking up a new sport will always be practicality: clothes that feel comfortable and help you to perform well. Yet you’ll also be keen to make a good impression, making sure that you look like you know what you’re doing and not letting your sartorial standards slip. The latest BOSS collection is packed with clothes that tick both boxes: engineered to perform and look good at the same time. Here are our top five tips for looking and feeling on point at the gym and beyond.

Choose a high-performing tracksuit

New year, new gym gear. Whether it’s for a trip to the gym or a run in the park, you’ll need a tracksuit that covers all bases. The best performing designs are lightweight, breathable and use high-stretch materials. The black tracksuit below is made from innovative S-Cafe® fabric, which boasts quick-drying properties and odour control - perfect for sweating it out on the treadmill. If you’re more of the outdoors type, you may want to opt for our iconic BOSS logo tracksuit featuring reflective trims for increased visibility in low light. For an outfit you can wear (almost) anywhere, a tracksuit in a versatile colour such as navy, grey or black is the best choice.

Look after every detail

Pay as much attention to the details of your gym outfit as you would your casualwear, and you’re sure to look put together. Look out for the smaller things like subtle logos or contrast panels, which will add a sartorial twist to your sportswear. A sharp cut and close fit to the body will also elevate your look in an instant.

Build your outfit on strong foundations

The BOSS Bodywear selection includes designs that will help you perform your best. Whether looking for an undershirt or underwear, pick a lightweight microfibre with inbuilt stretch for a smooth feel against the skin and easy movement. A pure cotton undershirt will come in handy on busy days as well, keeping you looking and feeling fresh while on the move.

Choose the bag to suit your look and needs

Here at BOSS, we take accessories seriously. Make your journey to and from the gym look sharp with a bag to match your workout look. Backpacks are a practical, hands-free choice, so are best suited for a day on the go. If your sporting endeavours are more extensive than an after-work trip to the gym, this holdall has enough space for a full change of clothes and more.

Choose the right T-shirt

Many sports T-shirts focus purely on how they perform, but designs from BOSS are about more than just function, and created with an eye on the details. A perfect fit is always in focus, while standout graphics or the iconic BOSS logo will bring a new dimension to looking good when working out.
