Gym Bag Essentials

I know for a lot of people the beginning of the year is the perfect time to commit to getting fit. For some people, that may mean a new gym membership or actually using the one they already have. I thought I would share what I keep in my gym bag so if you are new to the gym, you know what to bring with you when you go.

The gym is not too far from our house so I rarely ever take a shower there. I carry things that are essential for me to get a workout in and head home after. My gym bag is a tote bag (similar: nike tote bag). I like it because it looks like a casual purse so if I have to run an errand before or after the gym, I can just throw my wallet in there as well. I always carry a towel to wipe my sweat while working out because I am usually dripping (yea I know TMI lol). The hubby got me some of the Beats x Nike active wireless headphones for Christmas and I am obsessed. I used to have the wired kind (which are great too) but its much more convenient to have them wireless. I always carry workout gloves in my bag that way I don't forget them. It's much easier and hurts so much less to use gloves.  And of course there are a ton of germs in the gym so mini hand sanitizer is a must! I find that when I am doing cardio or an intense weight workout and I sweat a lot, I will tend to break out from the sweat clogging my pores. I always carry face wipes so I can wipe my face before I leave the gym.  I have been enjoying the Yes to Cucumber brand lately. It's very refreshing and calming after I workout. I of course will wash my face when I get home, but it's nice to get the sweat off as best as possible before. I find that I break out a lot less by doing that. I also always carry a lip balm or neutral lip gloss and a sample perfume in case I need to run an errand after leaving the gym. In that little pink pouch, I keep women's products just in case I happen to need them. Always better to be prepared than not.

If you're getting ready to be an avid gym goer, I hope this helps you pack your bag so you have everything you need. I keep my bag packed and these things stay in there so I can just grab my bag and some water and go.
