What's In Your Gym Bag?

Happy first Wednesday of September! I had a great extra long Labor Day weekend filled with tons of good food and quality time with the bf, but I'm glad to be focusing on fitness again with the Workout Wednesday (WOW) linkup.

Today's theme is: "What's In Your Gym Bag?" Since I don't belong to a gym anymore, I don't have a standard packed gym bag. But I do have a rotating cast of different bags for different workouts. So today I'm sharing what's normally in my bag for post-work beach volleyball or yoga.



Beach Volleyball Bag

My beach volleyball bag is just a cheap nylon tote since it tends to get super sandy. It's mostly packed with the same things you would need for a normal day at the beach, plus some specialty sport items like sand socks and a volleyball.
  • Water bottle 
  • Sand socks
  • Sunglasses
  • Tons of different sunscreens
  • Deodorant
  • Visor
  • Towel
  • Supportive bathing suit
  • Flip flops
  • Cover up clothes
  • Volleyball
  • Lots of sand :)

Post-Work Yoga Bag

I mostly use my favorite Gaiam Everything Fits Gym Bag for yoga, which is great because it has tons of space, a wet pocket to hold my sweaty towels post-yoga, and a built-in mat carrier. The contents of this bag are obviously pretty different than my beach volleyball bag, except for the deodorant. I have like 4 different sticks open at the same time and stashed in different places. Better safe than smelly :)
  • Yoga Mat
  • Flip flops
  • Workout capris
  • Low-support bra
  • Tight tank
  • Jacket
  • Deodorant
  • Water bottle
  • Yoga mat towel
  • Face towel
Now it's your turn! Open up that gym bag and show us what you've got! Oh and if you like to be extra prepared, you can find next week's theme here: http://femmefitalefitclub.com/workout-wednesdays-link-up/.

  2. Oh a wet pocket. Never thought about it but that's pretty important. Hate getting sweaty stuff all mixed in with the good stuff.

  3. My gym bag currently has some carpris, a tank top, piloxing gloves, a towel, and a water bottle that I keep in a locker at work. I think I've got some wipes in there too!

  4. Do you keep your spare bag in the car? I can see why you need rotating gym bags. #wowlinkup

  9. Normally in a gym bag, we used to keep essential accessories that require during the workout. But apart from that, we should also need some essential items to keep in our gym bags. In the case of women, we found different things in the gym bag as comparing to men. Thanks for such an informative article, which contains certain beneficial instructions on what to keep in our gym bags.
