All too often, gym rats see their time in the weight room as an excuse to let their style slide. But here’s the thing — just because you’re regularly pumping iron, doesn’t mean that you still have to be rocking that sweatshirt from your college glory days. On the contrary, as there are tons of options on the market that go big on performance whilst still looking the part. For this very reason, we can’t get enough of what LA-based Legends has to offer.

As such, we’ve built out a style guide that’s ideal for those who like to get their pump on. Much more than just a mashup of athletic apparel, it includes everything from blender bottles to jump ropes to gym bags so that you can stay on top of your fit from head to toe. Of course, you’re more than welcome to keep using that tired drawstring sack and those torn Apple headphones, but we feel that one of these pieces could very well be what your routine needs. And besides, there’s a reason that the saying ‘look good, play good’ holds truth.

Legends Fairfax Hoodie Tie Dye Black

This street-ready staple is ideal for wearing to and from the gym, keeping you warmed up and ready to perform at your best. With details like dipped cotton drawcords, an embroidered sleeve patch, and ribbed cuffs and hems, it’s a true cut above the rest. Oh, and if you’re looking for a bit of extra flair, we’d recommend this eye-catching tie-dye black colorway — it really pops.

Purchase: $95

Blender Bottle Strada Stainless Steel

When you’re a busy athlete on the go, Blender Bottles are essential for making those protein shakes are mixed correctly. Along with looking subtle and understated, this black-on-black stainless steel option features built-in insulation to keep your drinks cold for up to 24 hours.

Legends Enzo Tank

Purchase: $40

RPM Session 4 Jump Rope

Jumping rope is a great way to kickstart your cardio routine, as it’s incredibly time-efficient and chock-full of aerobic benefits. We’d suggest the Session 4 from RPM because its dual-bearing system makes for a smooth spin and its knurled aluminum handles ensure a confident grip no matter how much you sweat.
