I don’t think I’ve ever done a ‘what’s in my bag’ post before, but I’m quite a nosy person and like reading these kinds of posts so I thought I’d share with you my necessities for heading to the gym! When I go to the gym, I like having a designated gym bag. It just means that some things can stay in there all the time so I’ll never be caught out without important bits!
Bag: At the moment, I am just using an Adidas backpack. It’s big, comfortable and fits everything in with no fuss.
Water bottle & Snacks: I’ll always have a Naked bar or something similar in there, and I’ve started to keep a tub of dates because I find them really good as a quick snack before and after my workout. I also have these Zero sports drink tablets; you add one to water and it creates a tasty drink. I haven’t actually used these recently, but they helped when I was going to the gym after a day of work!
Bobbles & Clips: Always necessary! Can’t workout with my hair flapping around my face. I end up with a big stash of bobbles in my bag, so I was surprised when I only pulled out these three. (One is an invisibobble!)
Earphones: Something that I don’t actually use all the time (I also occasionally take my wireless headphones) but they’re there if needed!
Padlock: My gym uses padlocks for the lockers, and you have to bring your own. This stays in my bag at all times so I’m never without it!
Clothing & Deodorant: Well this one is a given. Workout gear! In the summer I would just rock up already wearing my workout clothing, but at the moment it’s just too cold for that.
Do you have any surprises in your gym bag?
