I am currently using a Nike backpack as my gym bag. Dorian and I originally got this bag for a trip we had planned as our carry on. However, I stole it as my gym bag…for now at least.
Below is a list of the items that I carry in my gym bag. I also made a YouTube video showcasing what’s in my gym bag and I will link it down below at the end of this post.
Weights: I carry eight pound weights in my gym bag. Currently at the gym in my community they do not have any free weights so I bring my own. I could go heavier if I wanted.
Ankle Strap: I used the ankle strap provided at the gym at first, but after seeing how high in demand it was I got my own. I mainly use it for glute kickbacks
Gloves: To help grip the weights and also to avoid getting calluses on my hands when lifting.
Head Phones: I rarely listen to music when I lift. It tends to distract me and I forget what set and or how many reps I have done. However, I do use my headphones for when I am doing cardio. I’ll jam out to music and or watch YouTube videos.
Water: In order to stay hydrated while I am working out.
Granola Bar: Just in case I get ravenous before or after my workout. I have been obsessed with Oatmega lately, the vanilla almond crisp flavor.
Lip Balm: For when my lips are dry. I cant stand having chapped lips. I like using Burt’s Bees.
Face Wash: I am the type of person who tends to sweat profusely at the gym. I usually go home right after the gym and take a shower. If for any reason I can not make it home right away and need to make a quick stop somewhere I will cleanse my face with my face wash. I am currently using Ulta’s Dermalogica line.
Perfume: For after I workout. Everyone likes to smell good.
Deodorant: To prep before my workout and after.
Hair Brush: My hair gets so unruly once I sweat it out.
Hair Ties: Again for my unruly hair. 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.
