Get In Shape And Look Good Doing It
Eat right, exercise regularly, and you will get your body at it’s peak level of physical flourish. There is one additional ingredient—keep your mind healthy. An unhealthy mind can have a healthy body for a time, but eventually negative activity builds up. Consider technology, as an example.
Getting good at a game like World of Warcraft can make you feel happy, but mess your body up. Social media can additionally be unhealthy in large doses. Balancing physical health today involves more than just putting the right things into your body, and keeping your body properly fit. You need to carefully consider your mind as well.
Accordingly, you want to hit the gym—and do so in a balanced amount which at the very least outweighs the time you’re sedentary. You will start seeing results eventually, and the more results you see, the better you’ll feel, even as you begin to become more attractive physically. With that in mind, following are six tips to look your best at the gym.
1. Choose 24-Hour Gyms Until You’re Comfortable During Busy Hours
If you’re self-conscious, it’s going to impact the efficacy of your workout. When you’re uncomfortable, you look it; even if you think you don’t. People may not be able to put their finger on it, but they’ll likely think something to the effect of: “Well, that behavior is…odd.” Until you are comfortable with your workout routine, try to go at hours of low-saturation. Night is ideal.
2. Know What Your Hair’s Up To And How To Handle It
Even if you don’t have a lot of hair, it can get in your eyes. Sweatbands can be stylish, and they can be functional as well. Additionally, tying your hair back makes sense; but even then, some strands may get in your way, making your workout more difficult. You’ve got a shower coming, just find a way of managing your hair best until that time. A ponytail can be ideal.
3. Get The Right Wardrobe

Athletic wear in general will be key in helping you look your best when at the gym. Find something that breathes and lets you move simultaneously.
4. Know How To Use Equipment Right
If you’re using equipment improperly, it could be dangerous. Worse, you could look like a doofus. This is only cute once or twice, eventually you start to feel sorry for the person you see that can’t quite figure out how to use a certain machine on the weight floor. Don’t be afraid to ask, or at the very least use your phone to look up proper equipment use.
5. Focus On Yourself, Not Others
If you’re always looking at what other people are doing, for one thing, they’re going to notice, and it will make them feel awkward. For another, you’re likely not going to be able to push through barriers as well as you could otherwise. Also, you could come off needy. To look good, focus on what you’re doing, and people will see a dedicated athlete.
6. Find A Workout Buddy
Working out with a buddy makes you look more confident and popular, can give you conversation fodder, and makes people think you are very familiar indeed with the gym you’re at. Not everyone has a workout buddy available, but a group working together can look quite confident. Baring a workout buddy, you might join a workout class.
Looking Your Best, Feeling Your Best, Being Your Best
Find a buddy or a group, if you can, understand how equipment works, focus on yourself over others, dress right, factor the hair in, and go to the gym in off hours until you’re confident enough to attend at other times. There are other things you can do, these six should help you get a good start on looking your best at the gym.
