Some gyms do not have towels and you can feel awful if you end up discovering this after your work out. We allow you to rent a towel at

The Gym so that you do not have to remember to bring one for your workout  swim or class. We also have some shorts and tops in case you forget your gym outfit.

“Shorts and T-shirt is a collection that always performs well, for a basic workout and does not entice too much interest or ridicule and is the standard option. You can get some outfits where they are created from a moisture wicking or dry fit material that will keep you feeling great and dry despite sweating.

Your best options for most fitness classes are capris, slim-fitting long pants or shorts.

Women what not to wear!

  • Unintentionally revealing tops, they may look and feel great when you wear them standing up, but bending over to do a press up could turn the most lovely looking top into something more. To avoid showing too much check your outfit from a number of angles before putting it in your bag and you can choose tops with a higher neckline so that you feel great during your work out.
  • Super short-shorts: when it is tight Spandex shorts well-known among women volleyball players, it may attract far too much interest!
  • A Long-Sleeve T-Shirt Tied Around Your Waist This can catch on machinery and it actually draws more attention to the area you may be trying to hide.

Men what you should not wear!

  • Layered shirts: few men feel that are not big enough and thus choose to wear multiple layered outfits to appear larger. Other mistakes could include:
  • Sandals/flip-flops
  • Barefoot
  • Workboots
  • Dress shirts: there is an occasion and position for sharp buttoned clothing – like a job meeting do not use if for the gym.

What everyone should avoid

  • Jeans: are not suitable while exercising as they are too restrictive and do not breathe. Imagine trying to do a squat or skipping it really could be tricky.
  • Baggy Sweatpants Long, baggy pants can catch on exercise machines like stationary bikes, where the hem can get stuck on the pedals or the water bottle holder.
  • New running shoes with digits, (like gloves for your feet)these do not have sufficient covering or protection for the weights area.

Final point of interest on what to wear at the gym

Some Scandinavian countries have their members taking off their shoes on entry to the gyms. So you see many people lifting weights without any protection. Some personal trainers may say that this will help with your core muscles and working naturally with your body.  Others would say drop the weight on your toes and you will be thinking that was not so clever.

It is essential to go to the gym with an outfit that is suitable for the gym. But more essential, is that you use outfits that you’re comfortable in, allow you to feel dry, and also allow you to move freely and make you look good.
