There’s nothing wrong with wearing a pair of cut-off jean shorts and your Metallica t-shirt…you wear what you got. You’re comfortable, and you can knock out a super workout. Right?
Yes, you are right. But you do have options these days. You look respectable during the day. Why not carry that look into the gym.? It’s not that you’re trying to impress anyone or pick up a date or anything like that.
Here are some things to look for when you’re ready to replace your cut-offs and tour t-shirt.
A Tank Top
This T-shirt is the perfect intersection of function and style. You want a tank that has plenty of room in the armholes, so you can lift your arms without feeling constricted. The material won’t make too much difference unless you plan on sweating buckets. In that case, a cotton blend or something like COOLMAX may be a better option. And take a towel.

A Long Sleeve T-Shirt
Sometimes you need a little extra coverage (especially in the colder months). Invest in an updated classic long-sleeve tee. You’ll keep your muscles warmer between sets.

With so many athletic shorts to choose from, it’s easy to fall back on your old reliable cut-offs. Or don’t opt for the cheapest pair from the same name brand athletic companies you wore back in high school. Look for shorts that are versatile – ones that let you perform at your best in the gym, at a fun run, or zipping to the corner coffee shop.
Choose shorts with a rugged nylon construction and multiple pockets.

Clothes don’t make that man. But, as the saying goes: Looking good, feeling good! And that’s the mindset you need when you’re tackling the gym.
