Gym Bag Essentials.

Not sure what to pack for your workout? I've got you covered with a list of gym bag essentials.

The size of your gym bag and what you bring mainly depend on your routine. Are you coming straight from work or do you have somewhere to be after the gym? These are questions that help you determine what you need. If you're coming from your house and going back home right after(like myself) then you will most likely need only half the items on this list.

  1. The most important thing for me are headphones/earbuds because music always makes everything better and will keep you in the zone. (Skullcandy Ink'd 2 Earbuds - $19.99)
  2. An armband will make your workout easier by keeping your phone/music player out of the way. (Insten Sport Armband - $5.49)
  3. Bring a small towel to dry off during your sweaty gym session. (LT Ultra-Dry Hand Towel - $6.71)
  4. If you're lifting weights, make sure you have gloves to prevent calluses from forming. (Gold's Gym Weight Lifting Gloves - $8.77)
  5. You will most likely be hungry after the gym, so take a snack that's packed with protein. (Quest Bar - $2.39)
  6. Always remember to bring a water bottle to stay hydrated during your workout.(OXO Good Grips Water Bottle - $21.99)
  7. Save yourself and others around you by packing deodorant.. must I really explain why? (Degree MotionSense- $3.88)
  8. A few sprays of dry shampoo will soak up your oily/sweaty mess and have your hair smelling fresh. (Umberto Dry Clean Dry Shampoo - $9.99)
  9. These hair ties will not only keep your hair out of your face but will also keep your hair free of dents. (Invisibobble - $8)
  10. A brush to detangle your messy hair. (The Wet Brush - $8.99)
  11. Prevent breakouts by using face wipes after your gym session. (Neutrogena Pink Grapefruit Cleansing Wipes - $5.59)
  12. Keep your lips smooth with your favorite lip balm. (Carmex Lip Balm - $1.59)
  13. A lightweight type of foundation like a tinted moisturizer or BB/CC cream is quick and easy to apply after your workout.(Loreal Magic Skin Beautifier BB Cream - $7.99)
  14. If you're going to bring #13, then you should probably also bring along a cream blush since it's easy to apply and will add some color to your face. (NYX Cream Blush - $6.99)
Also, if you plan on showering and changing at the gym, don't forget your bath essentials and flip flops to keep your feet from touching the shower floor.

  1. Love this post! I need a new band for my phone and gloves!

  2. I don't go that often to the gym, but when I do, I take a towel, my arm band, earbuds, water, keys, and sometimes a little snack.

  3. This is such a comprehensive list. Pinning!

  4. I love the list! I usually take showers at home, but I like to carry cleansing wipes
