I don’t always love going to the gym, but I love how I feel after a good workout.
I love that I’m working towards my overall health.
I love that I’m setting a great example for my kids.
I love that I’m taking such good care of myself.
But I don’t love getting to the gym and realizing that I’ve forgotten something important. Like my music. Or my water bottle.
I now keep my gym bag packed and ready to go, so I never forget anything that I’ll need. And I’m teaming up with Stayfree® to share my 12 gym bag essentials.
And I’m also sharing you how you can redeem a free month-long membership of My Yoga Online, so keep reading!
This probably seems pretty obvious, but I just cannot exercise without my water bottle. I try to drink a bottle before I head to the gym, a bottle during my workout, and another bottle on the way home.
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve arrived at the gym only to find that I’m wearing the wrong socks. It’s much handier to just keep a spare in my gym bag just in case.
Just in the last month, I’ve started chewing gum while I exercise. It sounds weird, but it gives me a little burst of energy right when I need it.
There is nothing worse than not being able to pull your long hair into a ponytail or braid. I’m always misplacing my hair ties, so it helps to keep a stash in my gym bag.
Stayfree Ultra Thins

I can’t exercise without music – which I keep on my phone. So I make sure to always keep a pair of earbuds in my gym bag, so I don’t have to exercise in silence.
I sweat like a man when I workout, so I need to keep a towel with me at all times! Gross, but true.
This is pretty obvious. Right?
I use my yoga mat for yoga (duh), stretching exercises, planks, sit-ups and push ups. It’s handy to have on hand when you don’t want to sit on the gym floor.
I rarely shower at the gym, but I do try to make it so my hair doesn’t look gross and sweaty. Dry shampoo to the rescue!
I use the unscented pack as facial wipes. It’s great for cleaning up after a workout to help prevent breakouts and leave me feeling clean and refreshed.
I know, I know. I don’t keep my gym bag IN my gym bag. But I do tend to feel more motivated to hit the gym when I have a cute gym bag.
