Your gym shoes should be comfortable for all your cardio and building purposes. The footwear can be regular trainers with comfy soles that will provide enough traction and comfort for those steady running sessions or even explosive endurance exercises.
Leggings, shorts, or sweats
When it comes to leg wear, you need a mix of comfort, functionality, and elegance. Fortunately, leggings, shorts, and sweats all work to achieve this, depending on your style and preference.
However, the most important part is functionality. Your leg wear needs to provide enough pressure to keep the blood flowing and keep you warm and dry during the workout, so breathable compression clothing is a must.

A gentleman not only knows his way around the weight stack and a heavy punching bag, he also knows how to take his unique style with him no matter where he goes. Hope this guide improves your style when next you hit the gym.
