Let's face it: finding the motivation to exercise becomes a whole lot easier when you have a killer kit of workout gear. You're a lot less inclined to want to hit the gym or pound the pavement if you're dressed in old stained sweats than if you're rocking some high-tech, purpose-built training attire. That's why we've rounded up some key pieces of men's gym wear that are guaranteed to elevate your next workout – from an essential sports jacket to next-level wireless earphones.
Bang & Olufsen's latest version of its bestselling wireless in-ear earphones is seriously game-changing. Boasting an improved battery life of up to 35 hours, a QI-certified wireless charging case and Bluetooth 5.1 connectivity, the 3rd generation Beoplay E8 earphones promise a listening experience like no other. Small but mighty, they're the perfect workout companion.
Crafted from water repellent recycled nylon, this sports jacket from innovative Dutch luxury sportswear label WAHTS is equal parts sustainable and stylish, not to mention ultra versatile: It will serve you just as well on your daily run as with your weekend uniform of jeans and canvas high tops.
Travelteq has created the ultimate go-anywhere bag, designed to take you effortlessly from the gym to the office to a weekend trip away. Fitted with seven compartments, including an integrated shoe compartment, waterproof wet bag and a concealed padded compartment, it's got everything you need, all enclosed in a stylish casing of durable cotton canvas and Vacchetta leather.
Unrecorded never fails to impress with its fuss-free essentials, like these understated yet oh-so-comfy French terry shorts. Crafted from 100% organic cotton, they're made to last, so you can expect to reach for them time and again, whether you're working out or simply rocking a low-key weekend look.
On Running's innovatively crafted running shoes are designed to take their wearer's run to the next level, and these trainers are no different. Flexible but hard-wearing, the mesh upper has a function-focused weave pattern for durability, breathability and agility, while the no-sew design ensures a seamless fit.
Thought underwear wasn't worth the investment? Think again. These high performance boxer briefs from CDLP are a step up from standard underwear, enhanced for optimal comfort and functionality. Consciously crafted from recycled polyester, they boast moisture-wicking, quick-drying, and anti-odour properties. Buy a three-pack to ensure you always have a pair on hand.
Keep warm on those extra chilly outdoor workouts in Shon Mott's luxuriously soft and ultra-comfortable cotton fleece sweatpants. Their understated style lends them ultimate versatility, so they'll look just as good with your everyday attire as your gym wear.
This superfine Egyptian cotton jersey crew neck from ASKET is 35% lighter than the brand's original T-Shirt, so it's airy but still durable, making it an ideal addition to your gym kit. When you're not working out, team it with jeans and an overshirt for an effortless off-duty look.
Complete your workout look with Norse Projects' high-tech six-panel cap, developed using high-tech GORE-TEX fabric with a durable water repellent coating. Mesh lining makes it ultra breathable, so you can work up a sweat in style.
