What’s in my gym bag? I use to use a Nike backpack as my gym bag. Now that I am more seasoned in the gym I upgraded to a Nike gym bag. Below is a list of the items that I carry in my gym bag. I also made a YouTube video showcasing everything. I will link it down below at the end of this post.
What’s In My Gym Bag?
Waist Trainer: I got this at the Fit Expo. I wear it when I do squats for extra back support. I also wear it when I do cardio, when I take it off my entire mid section is drenched in sweat.
Ankle Strap: I used the ankle strap provided at the gym at first, but after seeing how many people used it, I got my own. I mainly use it for glute kickbacks. I found my ankle straps on amazon if your interested in getting them yourself.
Gloves: To help grip the weights and also to avoid getting calluses on my hands when lifting.
Waistband: I received this as a gift and its amazing. This is a belt that you wrap around your waist and it holds your phone while you workout. It has a pocket hole to plug you headphones in if you want to listen to music. There is a clear plastic in the front that allows you to be able to use the touch screen on your phone. I use this all the time.
Head Phones: I use to only use my headphones to listen to music when I did cardio. I rarely listened to music when I lifted. It would distract me and I would forget what set and or how many reps I did. However, now that I am more season in the gym I use my headphones all the time. I’ll jam out to music and or watch YouTube videos.
Deodorant: Self explanatory. For before and after my workouts.
Body Spray: For when I have a long gym session where I worked up a big sweat. I will spray myself before I leave the gym. I use bath and body works, warm vanilla sugar body spray.
Bar Pad: This is a new addition to my gym bag. They have some you can borrow from the front desk at the gym that I go to. But the velcro doesnt stick anymore and they are really sweaty and gross. So I finally picked up my own. I use it when I do squats on the smith machine. I picked up mines up at dicks sporting goods.
Lip Balm: For when my lips are dry. I cant stand having chapped lips. I like using Burt’s Bees.
Hair Ties: Once my hair tie broke on me and I didn’t have an extra. I promised myself I would carry more than one after that. Also for when I want to put my hair up in that obscene pineapple bun. I have really thick hair so it takes two hair ties to hold that bun in place.
