The very first thing to do is to set your mind for gym. What, How and When you want to achieve certain goals in the gym should be crystal clear in your mind and enter the gym with a dedication matching to your goals you want to achieve.

Wear some flexible clothes like t-shirt, lower, shorts etc and better avoid other casual wear in gym. Many companies nowadays are manufacturing clothes specially for gyms and getting sold as gym or active wear. These clothes will help you perform any kind of flexible movement.
Shoes can save you from injuries, provide you better grip and they can also improve your performance in some exercises like squat and deadlift etc. You can choose any sports shoes you like, just keep one thing in your mind while choosing your shoes is that choose them according to their usability, not by looks. Also prefer carrying your gym shoes separately as this will help keep gym clean, after all we go gym for better health.

When we listen music, we are able to divert our mind from the pain by exercise. So work even harder with fast rocking music. If you don’t like the music played on gym’s music system then get your own mp3 player in gym.
