What’s in My Gym Bag

As I’ve been spending more time at the gym (who am I?), I’ve been working on perfecting my gym bag situation. If I’m in a rush that day, I just waltz into the gym with my regular purse and hope for the best. But when I have time, especially if I’m planning on taking back to back classes or meeting someone after, I have to be prepared.

Here’s an idea of what I pack:

Gym essentials


var e, p = /^http:/.test(d.location) ? ‘http’ : ‘https’;

if(!d.getElementById(id)) {

e = d.createElement(s);

e.id = id;

e.src = p + ‘://widgets.rewardstyle.com/js/shopthepost.js’;



if(typeof window.__stp === ‘object’) if(d.readyState === ‘complete’) {



}(document, ‘script’, ‘shopthepost-script’);

What’s in My Gym Bag

Minimergency Kit // I have these everywhere so it makes sense that I’d have one in my gym bag! These things are always good to have in a pinch. (I had a friend borrow the sewing kit to mend a broken sports bra strap once!)

Portable iPhone Charger // I keep my phone in a locker while I’m working out. So if I’m running on the low side of things, I’ll charge my phone during my class.

Makeup wipes // This is the one toiletry that I always bring. These wipes are incredible. I mostly use them after class just to get the sweat off my face, especially when I’m not taking a shower right away.

Extra socks, sports bra, and underwear // Almost always I just wear the same clothes between classes, but on occasion (aka after a hot yoga class) I want to start fresh.

Hair ties // I mean, these are just an essential.

Water Bottle // The S’well water bottle is my favorite for working out right now. It keeps my water cold, even in the hot yoga room. I also like that it’s not plastic.

Book or magazine // If there are more than twenty minutes between classes, I’ll sit down and catch up on a little reading. They do have Wifi, so sometimes I’ll get emails done, but it always gets me thinking about work and feeling stressed when I’m trying to decompress.

Toiletries // The locker room at my gym is pretty well stocked. They have everything from deodorant and mouthwash to tampons and razors. It makes it easier for me packing-wise and lightens the load. But if I’m going to a friend’s gym or taking a class somewhere else, I’ll pack all my regular toiletries in travel size! I like to keep a hairbrush, lip balm, aspirin, and band-aids in my bag too.

Do you keep any must-haves in your gym back that I forgot?

PS I don’t have the yoga bag in the graphic, but how adorable is it?!
