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 down. 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.

1. Choose a high-performing tracksuit

Whether it’s for the trip to the gym or for out running, a good tracksuit will cover a number of athletic occasions. The best designs are lightweight, breathable and use high-stretch materials. The black tracksuit below offers clean quilting and comfortable stretch fabric in a modern activewear look. For an outfit you can wear (almost) anywhere, a tracksuit in a versatile color such as navy or black is the best choice.

2. Look after every detail

Put as much effort into the details of your gym outfit as you would your casualwear, and you’re sure to look sleek. Look out for the smaller things like contrast zips or clean-cut 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.

3. 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 microfiber 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.

4. Choose the bag to suit your look and needs

Any new sport will require a host of equipment and clothes to go with it. Make your journey to and from the gym look sharp with the accessories to match your style. 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. Whichever direction you take, complementary trainers will seal the deal.

5. 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.
