You head to the gym to look your best by working up a sweat — pumping up those muscles with weights, sculpting definition with HIIT classes and yoga, and maxing out cardiovascular on the bike, treadmill, or pool. So after going to all that trouble to look good, when it’s finally time to hit the showers, were you just gonna use “plain old” soap and shampoo, and hope for the best? Naaah. 

If you’ve chosen to invest in a membership at one of the fitness industry’s more reputable health clubs, they’re also going to help you augment all that time spent on the gym floor with some awesome amenities in the locker room. Sometimes they’re proprietary — mystery products that are labeled with the club logo — but at some locations, you’ll be rewarded with top grooming brands at the rock-bottom price of $0 (not counting your membership fees, of course).

If your gym doesn’t quite ante up the goods, no judgments! Let’s take cues from the big guys, though, and put together a thoughtful plan that will keep you looking on top of your game without adding a kettlebell’s worth of product to your gym bag. 

Equinox

Equinox not only provide some of the finest workout experiences, but it also provides members with a nice assortment of Kiehl’s products in the locker room. Men can expect head-to-toe spoiling from Calendula Deep Cleansing Foaming Face Wash and Grapefruit Bath & Shower Liquid Body Cleanser in the showers, as well as Ultra Facial and Creme de Corps Moisturizers close at hand.

If you can’t work out at Equinox, grab this Kiehl’s product to toss in your bag.

Body Fuel All-in-one Energizing Wash for Hair & Body – $8

We love it because it packs a three-in-one punch, knocking out body wash, shampoo, and facial cleanser all in one bottle. It’s also awesome if you do a morning workout because it’s packed with caffeine and Vitamins C and E to invigorate hair and body, as well as menthol and zinc to refresh and purify. Try this 2.5-ounce travel size and then, if you like it, buy the liter pump bottle for easy refills and to use at home.

Wipe with the “Arctic Blue Ice Crystal” side to exfoliate and remove dirt and sweat or use the other side for a cooling caffeine boost. It’s great for the face, arms, legs, and chest, with no rinsing necessary. The cleansing wipes are an excellent option for a quick clean-up after an outdoor session where the shower may be miles away.
