This year, I've been trying to stay on top of my goals. One of my goals is to be consistent with going to the gym, and for me that's daily during the work week. I'm fortunate to have a gym at work, so I honestly have not excuse. What I find makes the going-to-the-gym-struggle easier is having my gym bag all packed and ready to go when I head to work.
So what's in my gym bag, you ask? I know this is a question a lot of people have so I thought I'd share how I pack my gym bag. I'll talk about what items I bring and why. I truly believe that packing well and bringing all the necessities help make going to the gym a breeze. Trust me, getting to the gym is hard enough, you might as well feel prepared to go.
1. Inspiring Gym Clothes
Ok, besides the obvious fact of needing to bring gym clothes to the gym ? you should bring clothes that make you feel good about yourself. I call my gym clothes "outfit" lol, that is, I want to be cute when I go to the gym! I try to bring matching tops and bottoms in cute styles. But I don't do it for other people, I do it for myself. Now tell me, would you be more excited going to the gym looking fly or going to the gym looking frumpy? I'll wait...
5. Baby wipes
Ok this one might be awkward for some folks. These are for the moments when you don't have time to shower, but you still need to get clean. There have been a few occasions in which either I forget a have a meeting to run to right after my workout or I don't have a ton of time to spend at the gym, but would prefer not to skip. Baby wipes allow you to do a quick wipe down and get the stink off. Lucky for me, I'm don't sweat a lot. If you're a person that sweats a lot, you might want to reconsider this one and just work some shower time in.
There you have it guys!! This is a short but sweet list, but it's all I need. One more tip - pack your gym clothes the night before to avoid forgetting things and to minimize any stress about going to the gym. Again, most of these items will live in your gym bag, and the only thing you'll really have to change out is your gym clothes. Packing my gym bag this way has helped me feel prepared and has made going to the gym less stressful. Hope it does the same for you!
Until the next adventure,
