    Gym Wear

    So, I'm joining a real gym next month. After two years of garage lifting I have been forced to part with my beloved bench, rack & weights. Luckily I managed to sell them second hand for more than I actually paid for them brand new!
    This is the first time I have ever been in a real gym so I was just wondering what the normal attire is for a public gym. What is comfortable but not likely to raise eyebrows or repel women. I usually workout in my workclothes but they're nearly always covered in cement or adhesive or some other ****.
    I know you'll probably say it's not about what you look like but if that was really the case then you wouldn't be in the gym in the first place.
    Any tips?

    My latest trip to the gym was yesterday. i wore sweat pants and a t-****rt with a turkey blood stain on the front left pec. My shoes were pretty muddy and I hadn't shaved yet. I work out at a fru fru gym (goodlife). The ipod wearing, under armour tricep kickbackers were not impressed with my attire nor with the noisy way i did my barbell rows (the bar starts on the floor).

    Adidas shorts with a tshirt of long sleeve T. Once in a while, a hooded sweatshirt. I'm completely bald, and if it's cold as eff outside I gotta wear a hood on the way. Being bald will put a chill in your bones faster than anything. I love my beanies, but I can't wear a one in the gym like some people. I'd overheat in about 3 seconds.

    Anyway..most of the time it's a long sleeve sports T (pick a team..I wear teams I don't like and people comment on them as if I like them) over another Tshirt, Adidas shorts, and most days is skateboard shoes. Bench day I wear running shoes, and I wear them for cardio, of course.

    Hot days: Converse Chuck Taylor shoes. Jordan brand basketball shorts (these are a must have for me, expensive but so comfortable), and a tight fitting t-shirt.

    Mild days: Converse Chuck Taylor shoes. Jordan shorts, and t-shirt

    Cold days: Converse Chuck Taylors, either sweat/lounge pants or Jordan shorts, and a LIGHT hoody with a wifebeater underneath.

    If you're an old guy in your 40's or 50's nobody will care what you wear.

    There's a middle age guy at my gym who comes down from the cardio area every morning wearing the same outfit, which includes a visor. I have no idea why he wears a visor, nor do I know why he wants to wash his gym clothes every day.....nor do I know why he benches every day.

    Nice guy, though.
