Gym Bag Must Haves
I hate it when I get super excited and ready for a workout and I get to the gym and I've forgotten my head phones. That is the worst feeling. It's a mood killer. No one wants to be the girl on the elliptical reading subtitles on ESPN. After that happened to me I decided to keep a gym bag in my car. It has been a true lifesaver. When I'm ready to leave for the gym I can just get in the car and go. Getting my workouts in are important to me so I have to stay ready. Want to know what's in my gym bag? I'm so excited to partner with Vaseline to share my gym bag must haves.
1. Start with a great bag.
This tote has been my 'gym bag" for years. I love it. It holds so much stuff. So before you start grabbing all the goodies I'm about to share choose a spacious cute bag.
2. Music is life.
The very first thing I have in my bag are headphones. You can not do the gym without music. I mean you can but squats are so much better when Yo Gotta is playing.
3. Shower caddy in a gym bag.
Don't forget to pack a bar of soap, flip flops and a shower cap if you plan to shower at the gym. Leave your loofah at home and use a wash cloth. Gym showers are meant to be quick. Get the job done and get out of there.
I live in the Pacific Northwest and it is cold here. After working up a sweat and drying back out I need to moisturize my skin to keep it healthy. Vaseline® Intensive Care™ Cocoa Radiant™ Lotion contains pure cocoa butter to leave skin deeply moisturized plus Vaseline® Jelly that absorb deeply to heal dry skin, revealing its natural glow.
Save $2.25 when you buy two Vaseline Intensive Care Cocoa Radiant Lotion 10oz or larger.
5. Sticky socks & gym shoes.
If I decide to take in a class these socks help me keep a grip during yoga, PiYo or barre. I don't like wearing my gym shoes anywhere but the gym so I keep them in my bag/car.
Staying hydrated is super important. I never leave the house without a bottle of water.
So what do you think? What's in your gym bag? As a fitness instructor, I motivate people everyday to live stronger healthier lives from the inside out.
