As I’m spending more time running outside and not in the gym, I’ve been working on perfecting my gym bag. I’ll pack all my gym bag necessities the night before so I’m not in a rush in the morning as I’m getting ready for work.
Here’s an idea of what I pack:
Extra socks, sports bra, and underwear // Almost always I just wear the same clothes between my run and a classes, but on occasion (aka after a long run) I want to start fresh.
Hair ties // I mean, these are just an essential.
Water Bottle // The Camelbak water bottle is my favorite for working out. It’s easy to drink out of when your in the middle of a workout. I also love my Hydro Flask water bottle because it keeps my water cold, even in the hot yoga room.
Headphones // When I go running outside, although not very safe, I do like to run with headphones. These Beats are the best ones I’ve enjoyed running with. However, Beats came out with a new style which I love, but I have not ordered them because they are not water resistant (I need some that are especially when running).
Minimergency Kit // I have these everywhere so it makes sense that I’d have one in my gym bag! These things are always good to have in a pinch.
Makeup wipes // This is the one toiletry that I always bring. These wipes are incredible. I mostly use them after class just to get the sweat off my face, especially when I’m not taking a shower right away.
Toiletries // We don’t have locker rooms here at our gym at work so I like to pack all my regular toiletries in travel size! I like to keep a hairbrush, lip balm, aspirin, and band-aids in my bag too.
Do you keep any must-haves in your gym back that I forgot?
P.S. The gym bag from the graphic is from Lulu Lemon.
