Make Gains And Build Legacies

The brand new Legacy Collection is almost here...

But first. Ahead of the launch of the latest Legacy Collection, we wanted to find out more about its long-standing evolution and iconic design.

Defined by contemporary cuts, a tapered silhouette and the original Gymshark logo, the familiar favourite was born not long after the brand itself. Founded in 2012, Gymshark began with an idea: clothing for bodybuilders.

When we think bodybuilding, it can oftentimes prompt visions of Arnold Schwarzenegger, old school gyms and sweat-drenched stringers that are barely serving purpose. For us, bodybuilding is the foundation on which Gymshark was built.

Founder Ben Francis explains, "We quickly realised that there was nothing out there that we ourselves wanted to wear, so we decided to take action."

"We spent everything we had on a screen printer and a sewing machine and started to design our own answer to fitness wear: something longer, something stretchier and something more fitted."

"This wasn't the usual big, baggy clothing you see bodybuilders in."

This was a new era of fitness apparel with a fit and feel ahead of its time. "It was handmade, fitted clothing that we and other young people genuinely wanted to wear to the gym and felt good in."

From our very first screen print to our upcoming release, this hasn't changed.

Creating clothing that fits, flatters, functions and feels incredible is the goal. We understand that you want to wear something that looks good and is comfortable to train in. The collection itself however has evolved with the times, built to last using premium heavyweight fabrics and the latest in innovation.

The latest Legacy offers new tech whilst retaining that old school bodybuilding gym wear feel. "It's raw, it's rustic and it's bodybuilding at heart but anyone wearing it will feel the difference." Workout veteran or novice, the range is designed for those who stay true to the ethic of hard graft.



Legacy Logo Leggings

We saw how much you loved our Legacy leggings in the last drop, so we decided to add a few more shades for those days when you feel like switching up your lifting looks a little.

So, alongside our fan favourite black pair, you’ve now got Deep Olive Green, Plum Brown and Walnut Mauve to choose from. Or just don’t choose and get them all. You deserve it.

They’re topped with a high-rise, supportive waistband, body contouring seams and stamped with our OG Legacy logo.

Legacy T-Bar Sports Bra

Our new light support sports bra has an open T-bar back to show off your muscles and is also adjustable for the perfect fit. It’s then layered with techy mesh panels, cut with a v-neck and has removable pads so you can take ‘em or leave ‘em to suit your fancy.

Legacy 4" Short

When designing the Legacy shorts, the team took inspo from authentic old-school lifting styles, so we reckon even Arnie himself might have rocked a pair. Plus, the new shorter 3.5” length gives your juicy quad pump room to breathe.

They’re topped with a slightly wider waistband which is elasticated and fitted with an adjustable drawcord to hold them comfortably in place.

Legacy Stringer

And finally, it wouldn’t be a classic lifting collection without a stringer, and the cut on this one has been refined to make sure it perfectly shows off the gains. What more could you want?

. . .

The Legacy Collection is a testament to Gymshark and what we stand for. 

It’s our roots, it’s our beginning, and it’s our future.
