If you've just joined a gym for some yoga classes or you've been a regular for a while, there are a few essential items you'll need to bring with you. These include a water bottle, your go-to workout clothes, and of course, an excellent pair of gym trainers.

Excellent gym trainers are so necessary because they're specifically designed to support your feet whilst you work out. They can help prevent certain types of injury, as they cushion your feet and lessen the impact when jumping or landing. You'll just need to know how to clean your trainers well if you have a particularly sweaty workout to avoid unpleasant smells.

Aside from protecting your feet, they can also help improve your workout performance, such as quick direction changes. This, of course, can only be done when you buy top-quality gym trainers, and we've decided to round up our favourite choices below:
