Lifting weights might be manly, but smelling and looking unsightly at the gym is not. In order to help you avoid getting caught short in front of the ladies, we’ve put together a quick guide to getting it right whilst feeling that burn.

In any situation, the number one rule for maintaining your masculine appeal is to make sure there’s always a can of good quality, high-strength deodorant close at hand to keep you smelling your best. The Bluebeards Revenge’s Anti-Perspirant Deodorant takes preventing nasty sweat-patch disasters in its stride, using the anti-microbial properties of silver to neutralise the bugs that cause body odour and keeping you feeling fresh. With the added benefit of its modern but classic – and definitely manly – scent, a generous application of this before you go will have the ladies queuing up to mop your sweaty brow the minute you start pumping that iron

It’s generally accepted as a gym rule that a towel must be kept on hand, to wipe down any equipment after you’ve used it and leave it clean and dry for the next person in the queue. Our multi-tasking Shaving Towel is the perfect size to sling over your shoulder, and with our trademark skull and crossbones design, you’ll keep up appearances no matter how you fare with the bench-presses.

It may be tempting to leave your post-workout shower until you get home, but with an estimated 12% of couples admitting that they first met at the gym, it’s not worth the risk. Pack our Big Blue Bar of Soap for Blokes and Concentrated Shampoo and Conditioner in your gym bag to be safe, rather than sorry.

Make sure to give your face a thorough wash too. Traces of sweat and grime left on the skin can obstruct and block the pores, causing nasty, unwelcome breakouts just when you need them the least. Follow up with a good Cooling Moisturiser and you’re all set – your skin will thank you for it.

And finally, whether you’re on your way in or out, giving your hair a quick comb is always advisable. A well-styled barnet can make a huge difference to your appearance as a whole, so throw the Bluebeards Revenge’s comb and your usual wax or styling cream into your bag for easy on-the-go touch-ups.
