What To Wear To The Gym: Must-Haves To Level Up Your Workouts


back to blog

If you’re just starting on your gym journey or you’re already a fitness fanatic, the right gym wear is so important to make sure you get the best from every set.

From performance t-shirts to cotton shorts, vests and hoodies, look sharp when you enter the space with our guide on what to wear to the gym from BadRhino.

1. Performance T-Shirts

When it comes to gym tops, you want to make sure that you’re choosing the right fabric. Performance t-shirts make use of woven fabrics that allow the top to be breathable — which is perfect for when you’re working at max effort.

These fabrics are great as they can quickly soak up any moisture perspiring from your back, underarms and chest — and dry just as fast!

Complete your gym look with matching shorts and trusty trainers to keep you looking your best.

2. Trainers

Depending on your exercise routine, the right shoes can make a huge difference.

Set a new personal best when you undertake any workout with our range of trainers. If you’re taking on the treadmill or track, you’ll want to make sure that your trainers are soft and more flexible on the mid-section, but firm on the heel and toe. If you’re weight training, choose a trainer with a flat surface so it’s easier to control your squats without putting too much pressure on your legs.

If you pick the wrong trainers, you’ll start to feel the pain in your legs and knees — which can cause serious injury if you’re not too careful!

3. Vests

For ultimate mobility when you’re taking on the treadmill, weight training or anything in between, you’ll want a quick-drying vest in your rotation.

When it comes to finding a vest that’s appropriate for the gym, the most important thing is that you get the right fit. Remember to avoid low-cut tops (so you don’t flash your entire chest when you’re bench pressing) and stick to plain designs so you know they’ll go with your gym bottoms.

No matter the activity, you’ll be reaching for a lightweight vest over everything else in your activewear wardrobe.

4. Jogger Shorts

When it comes to choosing which shorts to wear for your workout, you’ll want to opt for comfort.

If you’re going to be doing more cardio-based workouts, shorts in a moisture-wicking fabric are best. If you’re making use of weights, cotton-fabric shorts in darker colours like black or navy will be a godsend when you’re pumping iron.

Or, if you’re going to be focusing more on low-impact workouts like yoga or pilates, avoid short shorts as they can show off a little bit more than you intended!

5. Hoodies

Perfect for throwing on after you’ve just finished your sesh, a hoodie is a must-have whether you’re in the gym or working out at home.

Keep it light so you don’t overheat and keep the designs to a minimum so you can easily pair them with your joggers or shorts.
