Look to the versatile proportions of modern endurance wear. Nike’s Black Basketball Shorts are gym-friendly, but double as the perfect loungewear as well.

6. Shower Sliders

It isn’t recommended to slip back into your sweaty shoes post workout gym shower. Instead, purchase simple slides to naturally air-dry your feet and avoid unnecessary odor.

7. Durable Gym Bag

Having a practical yet not hideous gym bag will make it easier to head to the gym. Whether you opt for a backpack or weekend style, keep it neutral.

8. Manly Cologne

A quick blast of cologne as you leave the gym will ensure you smell and feel fresh and ready to tackle the day. Look to Davidoff’s rich blend of citrus and amber for best results.

9. Facial Moisturizer

Excessive sweat from a heavy workout leaves skin dehydrated. Use a facial moisturizer post-workout to ensure your skin is as healthy as your body.

We cannot stress the importance of the right underwear – especially for a workout. Under Armour’s durable and cooling boxers come highly recommended.
