Alright, so last week we blogged a bit about men’s style in the gym. We gave you guys some examples of pants, shorts, tees, and shoes to wear while working out. The main thing you want to keep in mind when picking workout clothes is that they are comfortable. The last thing you need when working out is to have your clothes feel tight or restricting.
Now we’re going to talk about gym bags. For many guys, you head to work then straight to the gym after. That means you have to bring a bag to hold your gym clothes and other gear. You could just bring a backpack, sure. But if you want to look professional, take a look at these bags we’ve picked out. These will not look out of place on your shoulder. You can carry it while wearing your work clothes and not look mismatched.
There are tons of bags out there, and these are just a sliver of the options. Try to take a cue from these styles and check out stores or websites to find one in your budget that fits your taste.
Gym Bags You Want to Avoid
These bags scream “I’m going to the gym guys!”. They won’t look too great on a man wearing a suit. The bags above are perfect because they can be used as gym bags, weekend bags, or a work bag. Typical gym bags have one use only….holding gym gear. Their color schemes are too loud, and they’re just not that great looking. You’ll see why in just a second.
There are plenty of gym bags out there. Don’t settle for one just because it’s called a “gym bag”. Many of the bags above are weekender bags, but they’re meant for carrying anything. So when you’re looking for a gym bag, don’t go for the traditional gym bag.
Avoid bright colors
Avoid “gym sacks”
