Question What to wear for the gym? - April 1st 2015, 11:18 PM

I plan on a joining the gym soon. The thing is I always wear skinny jeans and I'm really picky on what I wear for the gym as I only own skinny jeans. I know i can't work out in skinny jeans my legs would be to tight to do any exercises. The thing is I don't know what to wear. What t shirt and What trousers should I buy? When I go out I often wear vans which I wouldn't imagine are suitable for the gym either. I don't want to wear something which makes me feel uncomfortable which is why I have always felt uncomfortable going to the gym because I'm not in my own clothes.
I have been to gyms previously but only for short periods I wore jogging bottoms and a Nike t shirt once which made me feel really uncomfortable.

What would you guys advise wearing?

Thanks take care.

Maybe you can try sweatpants or track pants. You can get shorts that go above your knee. You can look around at the athletic section of a clothing store, too. You don't have to buy anything new if you don't want to, though; you can use old clothing that you might have or something like that. If you don't feel like athletic clothes are yours, you can always do things to make them feel more comfortable to you, like decorating them and that sort of thing.

Hey there Justin,

Skinny jeans probably aren't the best idea for the gym. Could you get some shorts? Or would you not feel comfortable wearing them? Loads of guys in the gym tend to wear them and you won't get too hot. Just wear something comfy for working out in and then you can put your skinny jeans on as soon as you're in the changing rooms.

I wish you the best of luck.

Maybe just a t-shirt with shorts/sweatpants? You should be fine without a special kind of shirt, though I think the dry-fit ones are more comfortable (I think dry-fit is a brand or something, but, you know... whatever you call those thin shirts made of stretchy stuff :P ). You can probably just get a decent pair of running shoes/sneakers from an athletic store or even just a regular shoe store.

Have fun at the gym!

use t-shirt and pants you feel most comfortable in. comfort is the main thing when it comes to physical trainings, imho

what you wear to the gym is just a matter of what your doing. If you are going to lift weights, for anything but deadlifts just a shirt and pair of shorts is good. But if your going to deadlift get a pair of tube socks or some sweatpants or athletic pants. or if your gonna hit some cardio just get a pair of shorts and a shirt. Or why not get a pair of the guy version of leggings. I think they are called compression pants. they are pretty much just the athletic version of skinny jeans I guess.
