Getting a daily workout in is a difficult enough task without having to worry about how you look when you leave. You have to manage your time efficiently to get to the gym in the first place, then you have to exhibit enough discipline to consistently complete the exercises -- toss in the fact that you're meeting friends or that special someone afterward, and things start getting complicated. Essentially, your goal is to avoid looking like you just pulled your evening attire out of a gym bag which, of course, is exactly what you did. Thankfully, there are a few tricks guys can use to make themselves presentable for a night on the town.

So go ahead and sweat. We'll help you make the switch from gym rat to man on the town. Pretty soon, working out and going out will be a regular and seamless part of your lifestyle.
