When it comes to getting kitted out for an intense training session at the gym, functionality should be your number priority, with style coming in a close second. So, before you get flexing, stretching and moving, here’s our guide to dressing for your next workout:

When it comes to men’s gym tops, layering up with a long sleeve training tee or compression top will go a long way in helping you get the most out of your workout. These will keep your temperature up, warm up your muscles, joints and ligaments, and boost your circulation. The result? A lower risk of strained or torn muscles.
Stick to tops that have sweat wicking properties that draw sweat away from the skin to keep you cool dry and comfortable while you train. Our Dri-Sport moisture management technology featured in our range of men’s fitness gear does just that.

When it comes to shorts (or longs), your active bottoms should be comfortable enough to offer a great range of motion for your workout, but never so loose that they get in the way.
A great place to start: invest in a selection of shorts. Our Dri-Sport moisture management technology featured in our men’s gym shorts will wick away sweat, keeping you dry and comfortable while training.
A little chilly for shorts? Team up with a pair of full-length tights. These offer the coverage and comfort of longs, but with a great range of mobility. Layer your shorts over the tights for an active ensemble that means business.

Make a statement with trainers that are made for moving in. Shoes should be supportive, breathable and well-cushioned. Maxed’s footwear range features shoes for a wide range of activities, from running and walking, to hiking and trail running – each pair engineered with features perfect for whichever way you choose to move. Pair with a pair of discreet trainer liners and you’re good to go.
