"How to make gym wear cool"

This is an exclusive blog post by actor and presenter, Diipo Ayo-Adeusi. "...The way to look sexy at the gym in clothes you’re not embarrassed to walk home in afterwards and will favor Nigerian weather is by keeping your look clean..."

Tailored track pants

In times past, there hasn’t been quite a fitness culture within Nigeria. However, in recent times, with the help of certain infrastructures like the Lekki-Ikoyi link bridge, more and more guys appear to be getting rid of their dad bods.

The one aspect of getting fit that seems to still be missing is the look. Unfortunately, many Nigerian men don’t understand that they can look good and be comfortable while working out.

The way to look sexy at the gym in clothes you’re not embarrassed to walk home in afterwards and will favor Nigerian weather is by keeping your look clean with simple, flexible designs and minimal branded clothes.

First, you need a cool tee shirt that is the perfect mix of function and tradition, combining modern technical fabrics  with old school styles in such a cool way that will work for brunch too.

A fitness tracker that measures your heart rate and keeps track of calories burned is a lot easier when someone—or something—else is doing it for you. Also, go for a sleek black look.

Also, versatile shorts with rugged nylon construction, multiple pockets, and subtle pattern are best and they come in a longer 7" version, which means you don't have to fear showing too much leg when you're doing squats.

Merino wool socks is great for resisting odor and providing moisture. It's also soft and cool as cotton.

A great help are technical shoes instead of running shoes. A woven, technical basketball shoe will be lighter, more sophisticated, and provide superior support for working out.

Right now, tailored track pants are as important on men's runways as they are in the weight room. They are the perfect cross between gym and casual wear.

Good earphones help to motive and focus during workouts and are always handy for privacy on a daily basis.

A phone armband is essential to put that phone in for hardcore workouts, where it will stay snug and tight.

Shower shoes can be stylish yet functional for taking a post-workout shower and running errands.

The truth is that unlike the good old days, work out can look so good on you and you take it with you anywhere you go. Get stylish with it!
